Some hardcore cakers (coughFaheycough) will tell you that Gingerbread cakes aren’t in fact cakes. Well that’s insane. Take for instance this amazing Companion Cube cake created by surprise birthday cake given to Game Cake’s reader Fred Zeleny by his mum. Sure there’s no frosting, really. Sure it lacks toppings. (Not even a whisp of fan-fave Ganache). But it’s sweet, you eat it, and it’s about a game. I think what Zeleny’s mum has taught us all is that the audience for game cakes is much broader than what the big cake companies will have us believe. Sure the triple-A Mario cakes will always be top sellers, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a success with something as simple and down-to-earth as gingerbread.
