This Portal birthday cake is no lie, has nothing to do with CES

The Meta Picture

You’ve probably played both the Portal games to death, and purchased one of the replica Portal guns and Sentry Turret. What I bet you don't have however, is a Portal-themed birthdaycake. The cake is a lie, after all.

Or is it?

An unknown artist and culinary whiz made this decidedly epic Portal cake, complete with all the tasty treat’s detailing and a birthday candle. Of course, this is Portal, so it wouldn’t be complete if it wasn’t "disappearing" through a portal opening.

The orange and blue portals work as a plate for the two half-cakes, though it’s a little hard to tell if they too are edible. It’s impressive how the chocolate cake hasn’t sunk into a mush, though even if it does, it’s a great reward for a hungry test subject.

At least with a Portal cake, you can deliver it straight from the kitchen to your party guests through the portals. And, of course, you can prove that the cake is not a lie.
