The Cake is a Lie. by Christine-Eige The Cake is a Lie. by Christine-Eige
Obviously inspired by Portal ^.^ - if youre unfamiliar with portal, this is the cake i was aiming for: [link]

<3 glados!

i love baking, and ive got an entire "line" of video game related cakes, but this is the first ive posted.

i wanted to give it a kind of dark atmosphere, like where "the cake is a lie" is found in the game. I took the photo in the dark, just the single candle lit the area - just like in the game. i was being a super perfectionist about this cake, sorry to all my friends that had to deal with me while i made this. xD

this photo wasnt intended to be posted on here, so sorry about the bad photo quality. i made this in february of this year - its chocolate cake, with chocolate filling/frosting, covered in hershey chocolate chunks. CHOCOLATE DISASTER.

"Didn't we have some fun though? Remember when the platform was sliding into the fire pit and I said 'Goodbye,' and you were like [in low pitched voice]'No way,' Then I was all like 'We pretended we were going to murder you?'[sigh] That was great."

That's one of the best lines in the entire game, along the boss fight ones. "It also says here that you were adopted. So that's funny, too". And the picture captures the atmosphere well. =D

I actually used one of the GIANT hershey's kisses they have around valentines day, but i think 2 or 3 might be the equivalent?

Sweet I always knew the cake was a lie... But I never knew the kind she made was chocolate cake, with chocolate filling/frosting, covered in Hershey chocolate chunks :D
LOL It's so sad cause It's such a tasty lie... :la:

BTW Great job It looks so similar to the one in the game! :dummy:

ZOMG you baked THE Cake! Nice job.
I think the actual "Cake" is a Black Forest Cake (although I dont know what those are.)
Yours looks yummier!

:iconchristine-eige:
Christine-Eige Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2010
:D thanks!

i think it is a black forest cake too - and i know that its supposed to be covered in almond shavings - according to the recipe from the game. xD

i decided just to go with an artists rendition of it, it turned out so tasty!
