If you’ve played the game Five Nights at Freddy’s, you’ll know that it takes place in a pizza parlor after hours. It’s dark in there, and it’s scary! It’s so scary that the first time I played it on my iPad, the iPad ended up being thrown across the room- from fright! I don’t recommend being as much of a chicken as I am when playing horror video games. ”If you’re a chicken, why are you playing horror video games Jenn?” For research people, for research!!
When I first started my “research” for this cake, I watched a couple of YouTube videos of people playing the game, and thought it was rather silly. They were sitting in a dark room, playing a dark game, and getting the bejeezus scared out of them. WHY would you do that. I judged them, I really did.
Then I played the game myself- with the lights on.
First attempt . . . boring! I just kept the doors shut on either side of me in the room, and didn’t last a night. The whole point is to last five nights as the security guard at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. I had to google how to play the game, and then I was off. When I reached the second night, I was in my groove, checking the rooms (where the animatronic animals are), starting to feel a bit cocky, and then WHAM! Scary animal face in my screen and the next thing I know, I’m screaming like a little girl, and the iPad was flying across the room. Thank goodness for Otter Boxes.
I’m sure you were at the edge of your seat with my recollection of the first jump-scare that got me. Since I’m nice, and didn’t want iPads everywhere to go flying around living rooms, I decided to make the best part of the game (and least scary) into a cake.
Enjoy your pizza cake!
