I’ve owned a Nintendo Entertainment System for nearly 23 years (I got it on my second birthday) and if there is one thing I have always wanted, it is for it to be portable.  Sure, I can play some of the classics on my Nintendo 3DS or on the NES emulator on my PSP but its just not the same without having to blow on the cartridge to get the game to work.

Well, one gamer with a fondness for the NES decided to build a portable NES out of wood.  I’d say the end result is quite stunning and while I am not sure I would call something that large portable, it is still a very impressive build.

As a hardcore gamer, I generally despise most casual games (I have many reasons) but even I am addicted to Angry Birds.  So, when I saw this cool Angry Birds cake, I knew I had to post it.  Its not quite as impressive as the Angry Birds cake I posted last week, but it is still really cute.

This cool Angry Birds cake was created by Pastry Designer Collections and they did a fantastic job!  I love how angry they made the birds look.  I wonder if the cake tasted as good as it looks?

While I would personally probably spring for any of the sets of drink coasters that I have posted before like the amazing Stargate SG-1 coasters or the Star Wars coasters, the Legend of Zelda fans will love this awesome Triforce drink coaster set.

Etsy seller 27elements is selling this awesome set (4) of Legend of Zelda Triforce drink coasters for $20.  These beverage coasters are waterproof and have a soft cork back to make sure you don’t scratch your table with them.  This seems like the perfect thing for any Legend of Zelda fan assuming they don’t have to get their liquids through an IV or something.

I’ve posted some cool Portal cakes in the past including a cool Portal wedding cake, but I think this might be the coolest one I have seen.

In this case, it appears the cake is falling through a couple of lit up portals (which are pretty cool by themselves).  As cool as this seems, I can’t imagine cutting up a plate just for the amazing cake presentation.  It makes the effect even cooler though!  Between the Portal gun and the amazing Portal cake, I am very jealous of this kid.

I’ve seen and posted some pretty great Angry Birds cakes in the past including an awesome and completely playable Angry Birds cake, but I think this might just be the best looking one I have seen.  Apparently somebody by the name of Noah had a really happy birthday with this awesome cake!

This amazing Angry Birds cake that features many of the birds and pigs you have come to love was created by Cakes By Maureen.  If I ever want an Angry Birds cake, this is who I am going to hire after seeing how well they did on this cake!  Sadly, I wouldn’t want to eat it because it looks so good!

Yesterday, I posted a really awesome boxed lunch that was made to look like one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Well, from the same Lunchbox Awesome blog comes this fantastic Pac-Man lunch!  This delicious looking Pac-Man lunch represents everything about Pac-Man here from a ghost to the dots and even Pac-Man himself!

I’ve seen some sites refer to these lunchbox creations as a bento box but a traditional bento box consists of rice, fish or meat, and one or more pickled or cooked vegetables so I am hesitant to call this a Pac-Man bento box.  Do you think this awesome Pac-Man lunch qualifies?  Let us know in the comments!
