A fan of Animal Crossing: New Horizons bakes the special cake that their character receives from their mother in the life sim.
Another Animal Crossing: New Horizons fan has decided to put their baking skills to the test by recreating the special cake a player receives from their in-game mother in the Nintendo life sim. Posting the photo of the Animal Crossing baked creation on an online forum, the recreated cake will likely make fellow fans’ mouths water by how accurate and delicious it looks.
Many fans of the life sim have tried their hands at reproducing in-game items into real-world products. Some take the furniture like that Animal Crossing: New Horizons raccoon wall clock from the game and actually reproduce them into functional merchandise. But ever since the title added cooking and more food items when the free 2.0 update was released in November 2021, fans likely found it easier to remake dishes and baked goods from the game in real life.
According to Reddit user irrelevantmemeboi, their girlfriend baked the special Mom’s homemade cake from Animal Crossing New Horizons to celebrate their sister’s birthday. The photo they posted even showed a comparison between the one their girlfriend made to the one that a player actually gets in the game. Fans will likely remember that they will receive the special cake from their in-game mother in the mail when they log into the life sim on their birthday. Given that irrelevantmemeboi’s girlfriend made the cake for their sister’s birthday, the occasion seems apt and relevant both in real life and in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
The photo in the Reddit thread showed that irrelevantmemeboi’s girlfriend used the cat version of Mom’s homemade cake in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Fans know that there are other designs of the cake, but likely find that cat version adorable due to the cute handwritten way the icing is made in the in-game version. Fellow fans on the Reddit thread complimented the Redditor’s girlfriend’s cake-making skills, stating how accurate and beautifully detailed the cake is. Others were encouraged by the Reddit post and some were hoping to bake the same Animal Crossing: New Horizons pastry for themselves as well.
With so many cute and adorable items found in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, it is not surprising for its player base to want to reproduce some of them in real life. Even though Nintendo does produce and sell official merchandise based on the life sim, the fans probably want to create something of their own as this will probably make these items much more meaningful to them.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available on the Nintendo Switch.
