Edible Geek: Real Wii Cake Inspired By Martha Stewart

When I saw Martha Stewart on the cover of August's 'How To' edition of Wired Magazine showing off her "homemade" Wii cake I briefly considered following her directions and recipe (hers was mostly cardboard and not edible). That is until I remembered what a disaster I am when it comes to baking projects. When I learned Flickr user rufus50 (real name Brian W) had taken the Martha Stewart cover as a personal challenge to create a scrumptious Wii cake I tracked him down. No, I didn't get a piece, but it sure looks amazing.

What made Brian create this intricate, award-worthy cake?

geeksugar: How did you come up with the idea?
Brian: I subscribe to WIRED magazine and saw that Martha Steward made a Wii cake in the last issue. After reading about it I found it was not edible. So being ambitious, I figured I could make one looked like a Wii and that tasted good too. After a few failed attempts this is what I got.

geeksugar: Have you made other intricate cakes before?
Brian: Well, I have at least a dozen cakes that I made posted on my flickr site, but many more that I never got photos of. So probably around 30 or so cakes. The two that I think came out the best are the air stream camper and the flower purse for my grilfriend b-day.

geeksugar: Do you own a Wii?
Brian: Yes I do own a Wii. We got lucky enough to get one back around Feb or so. It has made for some great parties. We ( my girlfriend and I) actually told all our friends we had big news, they thought we were getting married but to their surprise we got a Wii. We are engaged now.

geeksugar: That's cute. So how much did the cake sell for at the auction?
Brian: I'm not sure what the cake sold for. I never went back to ask, but I did get a piece of it and it was good.

Yeah. I was so upset when I read in Wired that the cake wasn't edible. How stupid is it to make an awesome game cake that is not edible? Real gamer cakes rock!

This looks so much better than Martha's! It's the proper size and edible. I felt so cheated when I read that Martha's wasn't edible, and had sticks to hold it up. Hers wasn't even a cake anymore, it was a sculpture.

I don't think I would have auctioned it off. It looks like he put a lot of work into it.
