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.


This, like lovemaking, is something best done by myself.

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.
