Serves 10


  • 1 (13 by 9-inch) cake
  • 1 can (16 oz) vanilla frosting
  • Black food coloring
  • 4 pieces white hard-shelled Orbit gum
  • 7 white Mentos
  • 3 brown, 2 blue and 1 red M&M's Minis
  • 1 marshmallow
  • 1 blue licorice twist (Twizzler rainbow)

What you'll need:

  • A serving platter
  • A bread knife
  • A small knife
  • 2 resealable sandwich-size plastic bags (Ziploc)

Trimming the cake:

  1. Trim the top of the cake to make level.
  2. Cut a 2-inch strip down one long edge of cake and discard.
  3. Round corners of cake with a small knife.
  4. Transfer cake, cut side down, on a serving platter.

Frosting the cake:

  1. Add a small amount of black food coloring to ¼ cup of the vanilla frosting to tint it gray.
  2. Spoon the gray frosting into a resealable bag.
  3. Tint 1 Tbsp of the vanilla frosting black with more food coloring.
  4. Spoon the black frosting into a resealable bag.
  5. Spread the remaining vanilla frosting on top and sides of cake and make smooth.

To complete the decoration:

  1. Snip a very small corner from the bag of gray frosting and the bag of black frosting.
  2. Pipe a thin line of the gray frosting about ½ inch in from outer edge of cake, as pictured.
  3. Press the M&M's Minis, Mentos and Orbit gum into the top of the cake as pictured for the controller's buttons.
  4. With the black frosting, pipe 6 rows of 3 black dots as pictured. 
  5. Cut the blue licorice twist in half, leaving 2 inches at one end. Press the uncut end into the flat side of a marshmallow and press the licorice twist into the side base of cake.
  6. Press the cut ends of the licorice twist together to make the hand strap.
