Edible Video Games?

Edible Electronics?  

Sure ... why not?  Impossible ... you say.  Anything is possible in the New Millennium ... even edible technology.  All you need is flour, eggs, butter, a little vanilla ... some serious baking skills, and you too can whip up an X-box birthday cake...

Or Nintendo Wii Cakes ... 


Or a Sony Play Station complete with spilled soda and Blackberry.


Or maybe you'd like to go old school and sculpt an Atari System.

You'll have to stop yourself from hooking them up to a monitor because they look so real.  And yes, you can even find a "Super Mario" cake at a wedding or two.

Kiki, here ... Miracles and Blessings ...  iCafe Woman Moderne has already started our countdown to 2011 -- and what better way than by mentioning the amazing accomplishments in the world of baking, and the added pizazz today's cake art brings to a party.  

Birthdays, showers, weddings, anniversary and also New Year's Eve parties ... from formal galas to home game parties go from typical to extraordinary with one of these life-like creations ... chocolate included.  


There's nothing in life that can't be depicted in chocolate or cake form.

Did you think technology was going to let fashion and accessories have all the fun?  iCafe Woman Moderne Diva and Part-time Server, Celeste, found a website that shows you how to make cake electronics - Coolest Birthday

Do you love your iPhone and want a cake version at your next party?  Here's your inspiration ....


New Year's Eve Game Night Party Ideas
Okay, so you've got your electronic cake planned in your head, the directions on how to make it from Cool Birthday, so why not plan a "Game Night New Year's Eve Party."  We're having one on the Eve of New Year's Eve, just to give our iCafe Woman Moderne divas some great ideas to throw their own game night.

Here's how:

1. Incorporate Video Game stations (If you have them and the space) Nintendo Wii in the Living room, X-Box in the Family Room, Playstation in the Florida Room.  You get the idea.  If you don't own all of these, someone you know has one and may loan it out for the party with an invite of course.

2. Provide Board Games - Set up card tables and pillows on the floor for board games.  Here are some popular ones:  Uno, Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, Scene It, Taboo, Scrabble, Pictionary and of course ... Twister.  Divide your guests into teams.

3. Decorate - Get balloons, streamers, New Year's Eve Party Hats, Boas and Horns from the Dollar Tree Store or Party City.

4.  Game Night Snacks - Keep the food simple.  Popular Game Night food choices are:
pizza, burritos, tacos, snack mix, wing dings, veggies and dip and so forth.  You can do make your own individual pizzas, or burritos ... get creative with the toppings and fillings.  You can also do a sundae bar.  In my book, it's never too cold for ice cream.  Get creative and make it fun!

Happy New Year!
