I recently made the trek down to Baltimore, Maryland to take in Games Day and check out Warhammer Online. While I reported back on the big news from the MMO, that wasn't the only thing I saw in Baltimore.
For some reason, Mythic had a life-sized Squig in their booth. And then I ate it.
Mythic teamed up with Ace of Cakes, a TV show on the Food Network, to bring one of their most fabled creatures to life, sort of.
They made a SQUIG CAKE!
It was a strange sight to see a giant squig perched by their booth, but this red devil was 80% cake according to the creators, with only a few supports and metal bars to keep the spindly legged little guy upright.
What's more, I can now say, I've eaten Squig Meat. Mythic was kind enough to toss me a chunk of the tail.
Kudos to the group at Ace of Cakes, who not only make art out of food, but also a pretty tasty cake.
The episode was recorded and will air at some point.
