The Elusive Portal Cake

I baked that cake I was talking about yesterday. I decided to make it look like the companion cube from Portal (don’t judge me on the nerdiness of this cake).

Now I am guessing that most of you have no idea what Portal is, but it is not particularly important.

I think it came out pretty well considering the fact that I have absolutely no artistic ability.

Oh and the cake was awesomely yummy!

Anyone else done anything nerdy lately?
