AAEJ showcased this absolutely-wild-off-the-charts-sweet playable D&D cake that has me rethinking every cake decision I’ve ever made. Every detail is just so gooooood! The sparkly edible dice, the cleric’s shield and spear, the glowing hearts….GAH! Here’s more from hackster.io:
The game consists of two figures, each with 5 hearts. When the button is pressed rainbow lights swirl under each character, symbolizing a dice roll. The ‘dice rolls’ are completely random so the winner is always random. The loser of each roll loses a life heart. The loser of the game is the first to lose all 5 hearts. The winner’s character does a little attack motion to symbolize their win. The cleric swishes back and forth with his spear. The gelatinous cube wobbles menacingly. The game re-sets for unlimited plays.
