XKCD cake

Pink Cake Box made this custom XKCD wedding cake for one of their customers in New Jersey: "The top of the cake includes cutouts of the comic characters with a red heart on a wire between them. The entire cake is covered in white fondant with black thin bands at the base of each tier. Equations inspired by this comic decorate the remaining tiers."

  1. But what does it say when you roll over it? Or in this case, eat it, one presumes, to reveal the hidden message. “Help, I’m being held prisoner inside a cake factory” seems somehow appropriate.

  2. Yep, awesome cake, and what an awesome couple it must be that has this as their wedding cake! Congratulations, as I’m sure you are BoingBoing readers!!! :)

  3. I wish I’d had the budget for a custom nerdy wedding cake design. We just went with three regular cakes, with Eve/Wall-E and Elastigirl/Mr. Incredible action figures for toppers.

    <3 xkcd cake.

    1. Caroline, if it makes you feel better, my wedding cake was made from a boxed mix by someone who learned how to decorate cakes not two months earlier. And (belated?) congratulations, by the way. ;)

      Though after reading your comment I really wish my wife would have let me use a crazy cat lady action figure for her part of the cake.

  4. Awwww! Wish I’d thought of this. One of the first valentines my husband gave me was made out of a printout of this cartoon. :-)

  5. Out of the hundreds of cakes we did this year, this xkcd cake had the biggest fan reaction.

    So, because the cake was so popular, we added it candidate for our top ten cakes of 2010.
