It is time for some Appetizing Aperture Recipes! We have all seen the awesome Portal Companion Cube Cookie Jar over at ThinkGeek for $29.99. Don't forget the Portal Cookie Cutters that they have for $19.99 for a set of eight to fill up the cookie jar. However, how about making some Portal cakes to serve along side some Portal cookies and a glass of milk? That would make for a breakfast for champions, or just test subjects.
I want to share a couple of recipes with you. One is for the infamous Portal cake and the other is for a Weighted Companion Cube Cake. The only way these cakes would be a lie is if you iced and decorated Styrofoam to look like them. Let's not do that.... I'll save you the trouble and share the recipes that I found with you!
I recently ran into Rosanna Pansino's Nerdy Nummies recipes. I have no idea why I hadn't ran into her recipes before, but I sure am glad that I have! Her Nerdy Nummies videos on YouTube feature cakes and goodies for the geek in all of us! While she has some recipes that I will definitely be trying (like Link's Hyrule Shield for Zion's birthday), I am mainly focusing on her Companion Cube cake. Using boxed cake and standard creamy vanilla frosting (not whipped) from the store, all that is required would be time, fondant frosting, and a love for baking! I will definitely be trying out this recipe in the very near future! All I need to buy is the fondant!
If you are looking for the traditional, and always promised, Portal Cake, no need to wait for broken promises from GLaDOS. You can make your own using feastoffiction's recipe! This recipe will consist of baking a cake from scratch, which is detailed in the video. Then layer and frost the cake using chocolate whipped frosting from a can. After that, frost it up with some coconut pecan frosting and some chocolate flakes, which can also be made and are shown in the video.
The video is way cute and entertaining.
