Xbox One Controller Cake


It was my older sons 15th birthday this week and him being obsessed with xbox i new this was the cake for him and at £12 it was the perfect price.

I tried to get the cake with Asda as this shop is local to me but i couldn't find it online but after sending them a message on twitter i was told it wouldn't be out until the 25th September, which was annoying when my sons birthday is the 10th.

I headed to Tesco forgetting that they were also stocking the cake, and headed to the cake isle. There i was browsing the isle thinking i was picking up a pokemon cake as Leo's obsessed with anime. Then there it was, the white xbox controller box. There was 1 left so without really looking i picked it up and put it in the trolly. 

Now this is where i felt a bit disappointed once got home and layed it on the table the cake was at a angle and not fitting the window as displayed in the advertisement. 

Once out the package there was icing falling off the cake and as you can see the cake is nearly off the board its on. 

The cake itself i actually enjoyed. It did taste. Little sweet but not as bad as some other cakes we have had that were thrown out after 1 bite. 

This cake is nut free and suitable for vegetarians. Sadly even though has soya products used there id still milk powder used. 

Id give this cake 8/10

  1. Wow! That is amazing... well done! I've never attempted baking a birthday cake before, but this has definitely given me inspiration. My little boy loves his Nintendo Switch, so maybe I could try something like that for his birthday.

    Coming over from the Amazon competition... my favourite cake has to be chocolate fudge cake! I'm a chocoholic!
