Video Game Controller Cake

This was the time my 11 year old son had a small birthday party where he just invited his buddies to play with his new video game equipment. Since I knew that his father had bought him the 360 game console, I decided it would be fun to make a cake shaped like the controller!


It was made with butter-creme icing and the detail and shading was done with an airbrush food coloring.The cake is simply vanilla. Getting the shape was kind of hard, I used a big, round shaped pan to help out with the round edges, then used a knife to finish cutting it into shape. A good alternative for the colorful ABXY buttons is the use of M&M chocolates. The other buttons were made with similar round candy and icing.

The boys had a lot of fun having a typical boy night with pizza and the unique cake!
