The History of Video Game Consoles, As Told Through Cakes

    Too bad i wasn’t alive to see the first ones, I wish i could have fully experienced the 8-bit era

      Also, nomnomnomnom

    • Crazy A 64 says:

      e-bay and a decent paper round is what you need son. Either that or jet over to the UK and come play at my house, I’ve still got a fair few of my oldskool consoles :)

      Wait… did that sound a bit peadobearish? O_o

      • t0rm3n7 says:

        only a little…

  2. liphttam1 says:

    Too bad some of them are made out of the mold-able cake clay. That stuff tastes terrible.

  3. William Sparrow says:

    Hooray! I was born in the year of the Nintendo 64!

    • William Sparrow says:

      I dont think the nintendo 64 is cake, it looks like someone dropped cake on it.

      • bs angel says:

        You are correct. And the background story is humorous enough to warrant clicking through for btw!

        • Crazy A 64 says:

          Vagina cake FTW!

        • Kato says:

          I have to imagine the phrase “I made a vagina cake for a friend when she lost her virginity” is a phrase that has never been uttered before.

          Unless that’s just something you chicks do, in which case, I’m utterly fascinated.

    • Spaz says:

      And I was born in the year of the Atari 2600. Damn, I’m old. My friends son has now surpassed my video gaming abilities. I’m gonna go into the corner and cry or something ;)

      • bs angel says:

        I feel you on both counts Spaz. Let’s just say I learned the hard way to not play snipers on Halo against ten year olds.

        • Spaz says:

          It’s ok tho. After they are done headshotting us on the games, we can still noogie and atomic wedgie them and they can’t do a damned thing about it.

          Except beat our asses harder on the games next time.

        • SonofMacPhisto says:

          Reasons like that are why I’m enjoying multiplayer gaming less and less. Besides, I haven’t played Half-Life 2 in a while. :)

  4. Can we get pics of that vagina cake?

  5. Ah, Dreamcast, I knew thee well… of course my Dreamcast does not look nearly as delicious as that cake one. As much as I hate to say it, that PS3 one looks fantastic.

  6. DeepCee says:

    This post makes me hungry

    • SonofMacPhisto says:

      You’re always hungry.

  7. ReverendTiki says:

    I think the Atari looks best. And what is a vaginia cake? Sounds AWESOME!

    • bs angel says:

      You think it sounds awesome? Imagine how it tastes!

      • ReverendTiki says:

        I’m not a big fan of fish, though.

        • HellCat says:

          Fish taco cake? no thanks

        • bs angel says:

          But it’s so delicious and moist!

        • Marksman says:

          So, which way does your sexuality point, exactly? Down?

  8. rollo 93 says:

    What….
    No game boy color cake?
    D:
    That was my first ever video gaming experience.
    Pokémon Blue FTW!

    • bs angel says:

      I looked for a Game Boy Color cake but couldn’t find out without a name on it unfortunately. Here’s an adorned one just for you though!

      Game Boy Cake

      • HellCat says:

        Is the screen made of carpet? i think it is

  9. ComaToast says:

    Man, that gameboy advance one is really big, and not well done. Looks horrible as well. When i saw the Xbox cake was 1/4’ed bitten into I got sad face. Great cakes.

    • ComaToast says:

      By the way, 1. Sorry for double post 2. The NES cake looks the best to me, because I could imagine someone making a bunch of those controllers into a new brand of snack cakes. It just looks like it could be done.

  10. Kalamarikidd says:

    Intellivision cake, yum!

  11. Wardie28 says:

    Wow i love them all, i want an 360 Cake!

  12. porge says:

    I think the GBA cake is a lie…

  13. HellCat says:

    Some of those are really good…. and some arent so good. poor nintendo 64

  14. SK CRISIS says:

    Where’s the N64 cake? All there is are the remains of an unfortunate cake and a rather murderous looking Nintendo 64 game system.

  15. DethPwn says:

    The PSP is the best, but that N64 looks quite appetizing.

    Speaking of cake: Portal reference:

  16. Indeed Not says:

    Want…360…cake.

    Too bad all these cakes are lies though.

  18. Shirdel7221 says:

    I think the best looking one is the PSP Cake.

  19. BIZaGoten says:

    lol on the sega and NES the games are as big as the controls :D

    i had a NES controller but the said it was a SEGA maybe they just copied the controls :/

  20. Das Kalk says:

    Vagina cake is win!

    OM NOM NOM NOM
