So I have a client who's brother loves Naruto (Japanese Anime) and Call of Duty. She wanted me to make an XBOX out of cake and include the above mentioned items as games. Unforunately, I couldn't get permission from Microsoft to recreate it so I'm stuck trying to design a Anime/Military themed cake.
Any ideas on how I can mesh these two genres would be greatly appreciated.
Naruto would be a tough one, the best you could probably do would be to find one or more licensed cake toppers featuring one or more of the characters.
For CoD you have more options, since generic drawings (or cake toppers) of soldiers, tanks, weapons, etc. are fair game as long as you don't include specific imagery from the game itself.
I actually just started watching Naruto, hehe. The only way I can think of the combine those two would be make the Xbox and make 2 games (Naruto and COD) sitting on top of the console. You could then add decorations that come from each one. Like for instance making Naruto's leaf headband and so on.
That was the origin planbut I never heard back from Microsoft
