Bloodborne Boss Ludwig Becomes A Delicious & Disturbing Cake

Bloodborne Boss Ludwig Becomes A Delicious & Disturbing Cake

Bloodborne boss Ludwig the Accursed is an infamously aggressive foe, and now one soulslike fan has transformed the creature into an impressive cake.

A truly horrifying Bloodborne cake lets fans cut into and devour the game’s DLC boss Ludwig the Accursed. The horselike horror is featured in the FromSoftware classic’s Old Hunters expansion, which takes the player to a new Hunter’s Nightmare location filled with deadly new enemies. Bloodborne’s Ludwig the Accursed boss fight is notoriously difficult, but eating a delicious cake shaped like the frightening foe is much easier.

Like most of FromSoftware’s action role-playing games, Bloodborne features a large cast of merciless and macabre bosses. The 2015 title starts out as a gothic horror adventure, with players facing enemies like the werewolf Father Gasciogne and the massive monstrosity Vicar Amelia. However, as the game progresses Bloodborne slowly becomes a Lovecraftian tale of cosmic horror. Bosses shift accordingly, with players eventually facing off against the demonic spider Amygdala and the shrouded deity Mergo’s Wet Nurse. Each of these unique and mind-bending bosses have produced both insight and frustration in gamers while inspiring tributes, like a fan sculpture of Bloodborne boss Ebrietas, that immortalize the cosmic creatures.

A truly original Bloodborne creation, shared by Reddit user Very_Syrias, turns Ludwig the Accursed into a frightening birthday cake. As the first boss of the game’s Old Hunters DLC, Ludwig is notorious for dominating players and gatekeeping the rest of the expansion. Finally defeating the sword-wielding monstrosity leaves his head lying in his boss arena, and this sight has now been transformed into a delicious desert. Very_Syrias had the uncanny replica of Ludwig’s head baked for a birthday celebration, and cutting into this culinary creation will likely be satisfying for any Bloodborne player who was repeatedly brutalized by the accursed creature.

Statues and cakes are excellent methods of paying homage to Bloodborne’s roster of rogues, and cosplay is another exciting way to recreate these bosses. One excellent cosplay of Bloodborne boss Lady Maria, for example, brings the bloody brawl to life by having another cosplayer portray the player’s Hunter. Like Ludwig, Lady Maria is one of the bosses introduced in the Old Hunters DLC. A nimble warrior rather than an overgrown beast, Maria of the Astral Clocktower faces players in a lightning-fast duel using twin swords and powerful blood powers. This intimate and intense fight is perfectly portrayed through the authentic reconstruction of both Maria and her opponent.

Despite being followed by titles like Dark Souls 3 and Elden Ring, the PlayStation-exclusive Bloodborne is still considered one of the greatest FromSoftware titles. Iconic bosses like Ludwig the Accursed are a huge part of this enduring popularity, and the cake commissioned by Very_Syrias is a truly unique homage to the disgusting enemy. Ludwig is known for slicing Hunters with his Holy Moonlight Sword, but now one lucky gamer can enjoy a slice of his horselike head.
