Hi guys! I had an AWESOME Alien themed birthday! My husband and I filled our apartment with green and black balloons which looked like Xenomorph eggs and we put up a bunch of green and black streamers. My husband, sister, friends and I all wore "Covenant" T-shirts, went to a space ship themed escape room, then came home and watched Alien and Aliens!

 

I got "The Art and Making of Alien Covenant" book, the Dr. Shaw with David's severed head action figure and the David 8 Neca action figure (which hasn't arrived yet, and my friend says it's still on it's way from Russia).

 

The whole day was filled with Alien themed witticisms, quotes, fan-theories and discussions and it concluded with my friends and I formulating a plan for an Alien universe RPG game which they want me to DM! :D

Best. Birthday. Ever.

I am confused as to why a chest burster is coming out of a cake? It must be a living cake like Alice in the Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers video for Don't Come Around Here No More.

Thanks! Yes, I am lucky to have such a cool family. The whole evening there was a running joke that my sister's computer scientist fiance was the synthetic of our crew.

 

At one point we started theorizing "It seems like all Androids admire the xenomorph. [Sister's fiance], how do you feel about it?" and he deadpanned "Well, since I've heard Androids are being decapitated around here, I'll keep my opinions on the xenomorph to myself." haha!

Lol, I suppose it is! That makes it all the more scary, no? Do you think a Pitbull xeno would be scarier than the Rottweiler xeno in Alien 3?

Thank you!!!

 

@Something Real

Thank you so much! I'm really really glad you guys enjoy it! I was so excited when I saw it, I was literally jumping up and down in the bakery when I went to pick it up.

@Dr. Curt Connors

I'm not familiar with "Alice in the Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers video for Don't Come Around Here No More."

 

I wanted to have the cake shaped like a T-shirt, so it would be more like it was coming out of someone's chest, but the baker said the cake would have to be bigger, and therefore more expensive... :-/

 

So, we just have to use our imaginations and pretend that it's coming out of a chest.

What is the red stuff? Strawberry sauce, jelly?

Cool, I was just making a joke, watch that video it's pretty creepy. Happy belated birthday!

@Dr. Curt Connors

Thanks for the birthday well-wishes and for telling me about the video!

I just watched it! Very surreal! The Mad-Hatter character kind of reminded me of Willy Wonka on the new Charlie and the Chocolate factory!

@VivisectedEngineer  You're welcome and cool, glad you enjoyed it!

Actually, I am not sure what the red stuff was, I commissioned the cake from a bakery. I think it was red food coloring. Maybe red food coloring with corn syrup? It was very messy and actually very blood-like. After snapping a few pictures of the cake, I yanked the baby xeno up out of it by hand and when I looked down at my bloody looking hands I felt like Patrick Bateman or something.

 

But one thing I do know is the entire cake was 100% vegan! Despite all appearances, it's a very non-violent cake!

Beautiful cake! Happy late Birthday. I wonder if the maker is a fan- looks like he/she has made something like that a time or two.

VIVISECTEDENGINEER - Oh, gosh! I forgot to ask: was the cake tasty? :)

@dk

Thanks! He didn't give any indication of it, but I do sort of hope the baker is a fan...otherwise I may have coerced an imaginative artist who's accustomed to sculpting flower bouquets and peaceful sleeping fawns into studying and recreating something just a tinsy bit disturbing.

He didn't have any like material on his website, but I chose him because he had a lot of really realistic looking sculpture cakes. Maybe my request inspired him to watch the movie and he became a fan?? I can dream, right?

@IRaptus

Thanks!! (I didn't make the cake though, I just commissioned it from a local bakery. So, good job to the baker! :) Actually, when my husband and I went to the bakery to pick it up, I started jumping up and down and shouted "Oh my God! It looks just like the PERFECT ORGANISM!")

 

@Something Real

Yes! Inside the cake was chocolate, and had several layers with white vegan "butter-cream" icing in between them. 

The cake itself tasted good, and the icing inside the cake tasted very good. However, the layer of fondant around the outside of the cake and the xeno itself tasted a little bland.

 

I cut off a few slices of the xeno's head saying "I'm going to eat him and gain his strength!" But when I ate them, they were not very sweet and were a little tough. So, I left the rest of the mutilated xeno on a plate in the fridge, to startle people every time the fridge door was opened, until I threw it out :)

Pure artistry right there! A lone xeno somewhere out there in the galaxy who has always wanted to be a cake topper is beaming with joy right now!

What's the story, MUTHUR?

@MonsterZero

Thank you!!! Lol, I guess it is both enticing and disgusting at the same time.

 

@HappyXeno

Thank you! ^_^ The baker did an amazing job! Sadly, he didn't post a picture of this particular artistic accomplishment on his site with the rest. I guess he didn't want to scare away potential clients, lol.

ViviEn - Such a beautiful and shocking tart! It looks like an albino critter! :) While visiting the fridge, don't forget that you can own the movie on Digital HD from August / on Blu-ray and DVD from August 15.

Enjoy the tart, enjoy the Covenant! :)

Happy birthday VivisectedEngineer! Glad you had a wonderful birthday and that birthday cake is to die for! I'm practically arching my back in agony! 

 

Btw, how'd you enjoy the Art and Making of Covenant? Did you see Bishop and Brett ;) There's a lot of interesting tid bits you can't find elsewhere.

"It looks like an albino critter!"

Aww, don't make him feel self conscious! He's the perfect organism! Lol.

 

Haha, trust me, Ati, there is no way I'm going to forget that date. I have that day off work, as it's my most important religious holiday.

 

I feel like I should probably take that as some sort red-flag, but this fandom just keeps me marching towards distraction and temptation like an unwary crew towards a deceptively Earth-like planet.

If I fall to temptation and God asks me why I spent the day at home watching Covenant rather than at the temple praying, I'm going to blame you, Ati :P
