The Birthday Cake is a Lie (Pics Ahoy)
« on: 06 Apr 2008, 11:53 »

Yesterday was my birthday and we were also having our weekly gaming night. Normal geeky things were abound and we were enjoying ourselves.

Now my fiance makes me a birthday cake every year and she always makes it some amazingly geeky theme that I always love. Here are some examples:

The Invader Zim rubber piggy:





Tentacly Goodness:






Cthulhu again:








This year she made me the Portal cake.




Now, this cake was awesome. A friend went to cut the cake and Kat ran to the computer and hit play on Winamp...









I can't possibly explain the look on people's faces, but god it was amazing.

When people write fiancé without the accent I always pronounce it 'fee-anse'. It's really annoying.

Also fantastic birthday events! Thank you for reminding me of something as well.

P.S. - How was the cake?

Delicious and Moist

Seriously, though, dude, keep her. Hog tie her if you must.

I'm only 7 weeks from forcing her into a contractually binding relationship actually!

Am I the only person who doesn't quite understand how that one worked?

Like, was the Portal cake just a shell overtop of the Rick Astley cake or something?

The Portal cake was a Hat Box that she cut down to a more reasonable size and beat on to make it look a little less perfectly shaped before frosting it.

I knew the cake didn't look quite right, but I did not expect to see someone get rickrolled by a cake.

edit: And man... I tried to listen to that song just now, got one minute in before giving up.
