From Candy Controllers to Arcade Game Chocolates

 - May 16, 2013
Parents often tell their children not to play with their food, but these tasty video game treats encourage just that. These delectable gamer snacks range from console-style baked bread to Italian plumber inspired cupcakes.

Many of these geeky treats are do it yourself items, such as the crunchy gamer cookies. All you need is some cookie dough, icing and imagination (although a steady hand for decorating couldn't hurt.) The video game lunch lessons make eating healthy foods more appealing for youngsters by creating video game food sculptures. This is both a clever way to get kids on the right track and to inspire envy in their fellow classmates.

Cupcakes are great just the way they are, but gamers will appreciate the extra effort that goes into making Mario inspired treats.
