Ok, for my friend Jo's birthday we made her a Katamari Cake.

I used a sphere pan, mini cupcakes, a #21 tip and butter cream icing.  For the ground we used cookies.  We made a windmill from cupcakes and wafers, and added plastic cows, et.  The mini cupcakes are attached by a single toothpick.
When it was all done, I fashioned a prince out of gum paste, paper and toothpicks. 
I took these pictures with my phone, I hope to post better ones when my film is developed.
The only thing I would do different next time, is pay closer attention to the placement of the mini cupcakes.

That... is... incredible.

How did it taste? I would be scared that it wouldn't cook through.

It tasted great, you cook it in two halves (cooks like a bundt cake).  We made our own icing, slightly thicker so it would hold better.

Thats awesome! I bet it was tasty Smiley Did you get the idea from Instructables? I saw it there and made my own a while back:



Mine was only one hemisphere.... I still love the game!

Thank you!
I like yours too, Gwendy!
I don't remember the exact location but if you google Katamari it will show up Smiley I was searching for screen shots to make a custom Prince action figure for my friend, saw the cake and went :what a cute idea!
...
Ok, I googled again.  It's the one with a little prince pushing it.  Looks like it's sourced at Boing boing.

It was funny when it came time to cut it, nobody would.  Until finally I asked a guest chocolate or vanilla? (the ball was chocolate, the mini cupcakes were vanilla) He said vanilla and i literally pulled a cupcake off. Once that first move was made... the cake was history.
