    Really cool, but that doesn’t seem edible…

    I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: why, after spending considerable funds to hire skilled artisans to create something with considerable visual aesthetic appeal, would you want to stick a knife in it and eat it?

    Also, I would be inclined to believe a good fraction of that is rice krispies, for structural purposes.

      EVE players are precisely the appropriate demographic. They’ll happily spend months loading up cakes with bangles, only to demolish it with forks in seconds. In this metaphor, internet space ships are cakes and forks are lasers.

      Maybe it is like the intricate sand mandalas that are made with the understanding that they are impermanent.

      Ephemeral art has been around for a while.  In fact, when I was a student in NYC we visted the Museum of Temporary Art a few times.  But I hear it’s not there any more.

  3. But NOT the greatest MMORPG cake, overall.  That honor goes to ol’ Squiggy:

    very impressive.  i prefer my cake to look like something edible, but that’s probably not as much fun for mr ace of cakes.
