Because my grandfather was one of those people who could solve any Rubik’s cube in about 30 seconds, I had something of a fascination with them when I was little. It didn’t translate into any great skill at solving the cube, but while browsing the incredible projects at Pimp That Snack, I found one that I would definitely be able to put together. The giant Rubik’s Cube cake is a scaled-up version of the plastic toy made with sponge cake and covered in a flexible icing sugar/fondant coating. It appears to be about four times the size of the original and quite realistic. Retro and edible – hard to argue with that!
