We’ve posted about cool cake art on GeekDad before, and about cupcakes, and of course about games. But we’ve never posted about all three topics at once, until now.

A graphic design and jewelry artist named Robin Dahlberg and several of her housemates made a set of one hundred of the most awesome cupcakes ever. Each one is decorated to evoke a particular famous game, ranging from Rock-Paper-Scissors to World of Warcraft. In the spirit of gaming, Dahlberg created a web page that makes a game of figuring out what game each cupcake represents, and there’s even a bonus level! The cupcakes are just beautiful — I know I would have trouble eating one because it would mean destroying the fine handiwork.

So, I’ve played 77 of the games represented. How about you?
