Every year I make my boyfriend a cheesecake for his birthday, but this year I waited too late and had to throw something together last minute.We had just seen the movie Guardians of the Galaxy for the second time, so it was the first thing that came to mind.
I didn’t have time to make my own art, so I just copied the movie poster using several different colors of cream cheese frosting. Although cream cheese icing is awesome for it’s ability to hold bright and vivid colors and blending to give the illusion of gradient, it sucks at staying out of the fridge for long periods of time and not drying up. Needless to say, I had to work quickly and pick out the most important parts of the image that would convey the film poster.
Everyone who had seen the movie got the reference immediately, those who hadn’t thought it was some kind of Star Wars reference, which is still a compliment in my book. Personally, I’m happy with the Rocket Raccoon because I got his teeth and expression just right. The rest of them probably needed a little more time, but my boyfriend was happy, and the cake tasted great, so another birthday dessert was successfully accomplished!
