marked the 10th anniversary
of the long-running MMO RuneScape. To celebrate the landmark at this year’s
RuneFest convention in London, developer Jagex commissioned a custom game cake
from Ace of Cakes’ Charm City Cakes. Standing a full one meter tall and weighing
in at over 80 lbs., the heavy dessert showcased Daemonheim’s Castle and popular
NPCs, including Blasidar, Grim Reaper, and the Fairy Queen, before it was
devoured by 500 RuneScape fans and the Jagex staff.
“We wanted the cake to represent all aspects of RuneScape but, in particular,
we wanted to incorporate elements of the floating citadels from this year’s
hugely popular clan update,” said Jagex CEO Mark Gerhard at RuneFest 2011. “With
this in mind we turned to the world-renowned bakers at Charm City Cakes and
commissioned them to turn our vision into a reality. Their creation really does
the game justice and crowned a perfect end to RuneFest 2011.”
