We know, you’re too cool to spend an afternoon baking. That’s why you’re still living with mom, after all — so you can get her to do all that cooking stuff for you. And when you give her this Retro Arcade Cake Mold, she can make your favorite spongy chocolate bread in the shape of a Space Invader alien. Yay.
Does it do anything awesome other than turn out cakes that look like enemy characters from a retro video game? Of course, not. It’s a silicone baking dish, not a magical amulet blessed by an ancient priest in a holy ceremony. Still, if you’ve ever fancied eating an army of aliens with cream filling while drinking coffee out of your Space Invaders mug, this is exactly what you’re looking for.
Oh yeah, I’m sure the Retro Arcade Cake Mold can help you make slabs of ice shaped as Space Invaders, too. You know, just in case mom declines to make you cake shaped like an 8-bit graphic and you’d like to put it to good use. Well, you can always learn to bake spongy sweet pastry, too, but we know how busy you already are between Dragon Age II, Angry Birds and your never-ending love affair with COD multiplayer. What a life.
The Retro Arcade Cake Mold is available from Spinning Hat, priced at £9.99.
