Encourage your kids to play with their food by making a cake that looks like a toy. The Nintendo DS lookalike houses some electronics to spruce up the presentation. The upper panel is cardboard covered in frosting to tie it in with the edible lower sections. That cardboard panel hides a couple of LEDs that blink thanks to a blinking Christmas light bulb in series with the diodes. There is also an LCD screen backlight in the form of to CCFL bulbs. The screen is just a still image but that’s okay, you can’t expect an actual video screen to be built into this. Take a look at the clip after the break to see the internals.
We’ve looked in on a few other cake hacks in the past. If you missed them before now’s your chance to revisit the gantry-based frosting dispenser and the turn-table frosting injector with silver-orb detailing. These are some sweet hacks!

well that was disappointing. I saw Mario karts and thought it was real. Its still very cool. I wish i had the parts from the NDS to lcd project and i would build a working version.
maybe a real working PSP or atari or nes is in the future.
I calling it out as fake, the cake is always a lie.
Angry birds cake:

Not at all!
Anyway, this cake is great, it’s so delicious and moist.

I was. I was expecting it to be playable, especially considering the way you presented the article. Neat concept, but could’ve been done better.
