Here's a little fun Google Doodle version if you want to play quick game!
Zeena wanted the cake flavor to be the same as the one I made for her before -- vanilla chiffon cake with strawberry puree and generous amounts of fresh strawberry slices and light vanilla mousse between the cake layers. For her previous cake, I had used a whilte chocolate frosting for the outside for the white satiny finish but for this cake, I decided to cover it with dark chocolate frosting to get that nice dark background to recreate the Pac-Man game screen on.
The cake was decorated to match the lovely inviation Zeena had created for the party. I made little ghosts and pacman cookies and used yellow mini M&Ms for the dots that the Pac-Man consumes.
In addition to the cake, Zeena requested for some matching cookies to go along with. I found this perfect little tulip cookie cutter that I could use to make Pac-Man ghosts when flipped upside down.
The cookie base was simple sugar cookie dough rolled out and baked till crisp and then covered with colored icing. The eyes were created with white chocolate and milk chocolate chips. The ghosts were absolutely adorable when they were put in a giant cluster butted up against each other!
It was great to hear that the party was a success and that the cookies added a nice decorative touch to it. Thank you so much Zeena for your kind words!
