Self-Indulgent Birthday Minecraft Cake Post

I'm gonna eat ya little piggy.

Just to say, my girlfriend is best of all the girlfriends.

But I’m also convinced that there must be other game related cakes that people have had and, ideally, photographed. So post links below, and I’ll magic them into images in the comments. Thus we will win at the internet.

Unless no one does, and then I’ll look stupid.

NB: The cake was designed before the announcement of the new biomes. An update to this cake will be made available from November 1st.

    Happy Birthday, Mr Walker!!

  2. Rinox says:

    Happy birthday and tasty biomes to you sir!

    Your girlfriend is made of awesome (and presumably, cake-baking magic).

  3. omicron says:

    Do you know, are there more girlfriends where you got yours? And how much do they cost?

    In all seriousness, that cake is awesome. You are a very fortunate man with a very tolerant gal. And if she plays, too? Icing on the cake (so to speak)

      Wait for Lewie on Saturday, he can always gets you a cheap deal. Usually on something you don’t know you want.

  4. Neosubu says:

    Happy birthday!
    And that is an EPIC win on your girlfriends part, let her know =)

    • Groove says:

      Truly, truly epic.

      Also, happy birthday, even though it’s late

  5. Alex Bakke says:

    Are those marshmallow tree-leaves? If so, marry this woman post-haste.

    (Happy Birthday)

    P.S. I have literally only received one birthday cake that was hand-made, and that was a giant Bourbon Cream.

    • HDCrab says:

      When you aren’t called Alex Bakke, are you called Chris McCartney? or can two people really share this anecdote?

    • Alex Bakke says:

      Obviously two great men.

  6. MuscleHorse says:

    Happy Birthday John John.

    My snap isn’t a cake but it’s girlfriend/birthday related. She put more effort into it than any stupid cake and so is better.

    PS, I’m Richard.

  7. Paul S. says:

    Bloody hell! That’s a deeply impressive cake.

  8. Daniel Klein says:

    Argh! Every time I have something relevant to post here, I feel like what I’m doing is awkwardly close to spamming. But still!

    We ran a contest around “cook something League of Legends related” a little while back and almost all of the entries were cakes. And DELICIOUS! I know because a crazy fan of ours traveled to Cologne from the UK just to deliver this cake to me:

    It was oh so delicious. And sugary.

    But all of these were awesome. And most of them were cakes:

      And now I am hungry, and in awe of your players.

      Great thread you linked there!

  9. DoucheMullet says:

    Oh lord Jesus Christ, can we go one day without five minecraft posts.

    • Daniel Klein says:


      My son.

    • John Walker says:

      Yes, most days, you horrid whiny old grumpface.

    • bob_d says:

      HERESY! There shall never be less than five Minecraft posts per day, and we shall force thee to read them all! Oh wait, you’re apparently already forcing yourself to do it, despite your distaste.

    • Jake says:

      Post some really, really long Minecraft posts, just to screw over the people that are apparently forced to read them all.

    • bleeters says:

      This isn’t Minecraft news, this is birthday and/or cake news. It just happens that the cake looks like Minecraft.

      Besides, it’s an adorable cake.

    • sfury says:


      Woe is us.

      (but hey at least we have delicious cake)

  10. bob_d says:

    No one loves me enough to make me such a cake.

  11. Serenegoose says:

    My girlfriend once baked me a companion cake, but alas, no photographic evidence for it exists. But it was bigger than my head and had strawberry in it. :)

  12. Hmm-Hmm. says:

    Congratulations once more, John! That looks like a fine cake.

  13. Ricc says:

    Happy Birthday, Mr. Walker! :)

    *Insert something about digestion and Creepers here.*

  14. stahlwerk says:

    Happy Birthday, and mad congrats on a cake well boken… baken… baked. Anyway, it is of the art.

    Bak’d. Cakegasm? What a cake. Old men, running the world.

  15. MuscleHorse says:

    My comment with picture is awaiting moderation – I don’t believe this has happened to me before. Has something gone wrong? It’s been like that for a while :(

    • John Walker says:

      Sometimes posts with just a link get eaten by our over-enthusiastic comment monster. I’ll go have a rummage in its belly.

    • Lars Westergren says:


      Perhaps you will find Kieron’s body while rummaging around down there.

      Also, happy birthday.

    • over-enthusiastic comment monster says:

      Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm… Tasty cake links, my favorite.

    I’m rather a fan of flight sims :-)

    This unexpectedly resulted in a tasty surprise:

  18. Fede says:

    Happy Birthday, John!

  19. Flobulon says:

    That is a most excellent cake.
    Hepty Turfday, Jihn!

  20. Sarkhan Lol says:

    Ugh, yet another example of growing RPS pro-cake bias. Everyone refresh your browsers over and over again until these fascist spin-doctors agree to our demands, let’s bring this journalistic dictatorship to its KNEES!

  21. perilisk says:

    Protip: Put a ring on it.

    • Torgen says:


      I live in mortal dread my wife will one day realize how much I don’t deserve her and take off.

    • Lightbulb says:

      Yeah I mean you wouldn’t want Valve to suddenly turn around and put a ring on it!

    • Baboonanza says:


  22. Arathain says:

    A very happy birthday to you, Mr Walker. I am delighted it includes cake, and to have such a fine specimen is icing on the… hrm…

  23. Bluebreaker says:

    Is that edible? =P

  24. Web Cole says:

    Happy birthday John!

    Ok, so its not my cake, but this comments thread is looking a bit on the stingy side so far:

    I thought that was rather splendid :)

    • TheAngryMongoose says:

      Very pretty, but I’m not sure I’d eat it.

    • Rob says:


      Worst birthday ever.

  25. Zerrick says:

    Happy birthday, Mr. Walker.
    And don’t dig too deep into that cake, you could lose your diamond fork.

  26. Hobbes says:

    Happy boifday Mr Walker!

  27. Maykael says:

    The happiest of birthdays, John! Hope you’ll enjoy that cake block by block. :D

  28. badvibration says:

    I love the candles being used as torches.

  29. Gabe McGrath says:

    Back in 1998, when I didn’t have a digital camera, nor reliable internet access, by partner (now wife) ordered me the most AWESOME birthday surprise.

    A giant ‘Player ship from Galaga’ chocolate mud cake.

    Alas, I am fail. I didn’t not get a photo.
    Fail Fail Fail.

    So John, please grab one of these images, post it here, and the hivemind can just imagine it rendered in heart-attack inducing chocolate mudcake.

  30. Shadram says:

    Happy Birthday!
    Nobody’s made me a fancy cake since I was 12. :( I’m the cake baker in my group of friends (a tradition I really wish I hadn’t started…) but none of them are really gamers, so I’ve not made anything game related. I did make a cat cake, though:

    It’s rubbish, but an artist I am not.

  31. El Stevo says:

    Oh lord Jesus Christ, can we go one year without it being John’s birthday.

  32. bleeters says:


    …are those little candle torches?

  33. Nick says:

    Happy Birthday John, and great cake.

  34. Hamstronomy says:


    No explosive creepers?

  35. Farsearcher says:

    Happy Birthday John!

    Save Quinns a slice with Iron in it

    • LionsPhil says:

      Hah, brilliant.

      (Also, happy birthday John, since I apparently neglected to note this in the other comment.)

  36. Kevin says:

    My wife made a 1-up cake for a LAN party we had a few months ago.

    Key lime flavored! YUMMMMMM!

  37. DMJ says:

    Careful, there may be magma at the bottom.

    Magma is a funny word.

  38. Miranda says:

    There’s some cool gamer cakes on the Cake Wrecks blog. They usually make fun of poorly decorated cakes, but they have a weekly ‘Sunday Sweets’ column where they post the non-wrecky cakes.

    Nice Minecraft cake btw :)

      That blog is hilarious. I’ve only read the first page, but am at work and giggling too much. This is my favourite post so far:

      Especially the Pumpkin Poo-nicorn. TF2 should have used that for its new boss…

  39. Xbolt says:

    Cake I made myself for my 18th birthday:

    Most unoriginal idea ever, but I was pretty pleased with it. (The other people at the party were too.)

    • sfury says:

      Looks very much like the real thing!

      Oh wait, that’s actually more real. ;)

    • Flat Eric says:

      It’s a triumph. Huge success.

    • David says:

      And here I was thinking I was the only person ever to have the companion cube and the mug

    • Jad says:

      The icing (ha, pun!) on that photo is the Half-Life 2 box in the background. Its a cornucopia of Valve goodness!

    • Jolly Teaparty says:

      It looks so delicious and moist.

  40. jaak says:

    lol i have to admit your GF has built an amazing cake… little squares are soooo difficult to make…. Did she give you a spade to eat it with since its all dirt?

  41. Tom Camfield says:

    Hppy Bdy John!

  42. Tei says:

    My ex-girlfriend was a creeper.

  43. Bozzley says:

    My friend made me a companion cube cake a while back, but the photo of that was a casualty of the infamous “wiped the old hard drive before installing the new one” calamity that I don’t like to talk about. If she still has the photo of it, I’ll post it up later. Sniff.

  44. Nova says:

    Happy Birthday, John.

  45. Lambchops says:

    Happy birthday and enjoy the cake.

  46. Flaringo says:

    Cool cake, and happy birthday, John!

  47. strangeed says:

    awesome! happy birthday. Very jealous of the confectionery abilities on display.

  48. frags says:

    Wow, happy birthday Mr. Walker.

  49. logizomechanophobe says:

    No self-indulgent, yet thematically related pics to post from me, however I do want to wish you a happy birthday and me a happy birthday for today is our day, John Walker! Cheers!

  50. Brumisator says:

    I want to steal Mr. Walker’s girlfriend for myself.

    But that’d be rude, especially on his birthday. consider this my present to you, J.W Congrats!
