Our mothers always said everything tastes better with a dash of love, but these video game cakes combine tasty dessert with a tablespoon of geek for deliciously dorky results.

Depicting characters and consoles, some of these confections are impressively professional, while other are obviously homemade. All we know is that if a girl made us a sweet Legend of Zelda cake for our birthdays, we'd pretty much go ahead and propose right after we ate all the frosting off Link's shield.
