This Blog is my corner of the web to talk about the Video Games I play, how I play them, and just gaming in general.  I also love baking and will post all of the game-themed cakes I bake.  Basically…

What you will find in this blog:

  • Commentary on my experience in a video game (strategy, fun antics)
  • Hard to find game facts, strategies, or Easter eggs
  • Original game-themed baked goods with recipes (any unoriginal recipes will be credited accordingly)
  • Interviews / Questionnaires with people of the video game world (super broad, I know)

What you will not find in this blog:

  • Plain old reviews of games (boring!)
  • Baked goods that are not video game themed (though some may be a stretch)

About the Author

This blog is written, edited, published, coded, hosted, and maintained by Megan Murray (also WordPress and AWS). I’m a geek, a dork, a cake fiend, horse lover, and technical writer. I graduated with a BS in CS and a Technical Writing minor.

I guess you could say I’m a pretty typical “woman in tech.” While of course no one likes stereotypes, I can’t say I’m really breaking any molds here: I’m a bit of a dork, I love to play video games, I’m always in sneakers, I’ve watched my share of anime, I’ve avoided numerous social obligations so I could sit around on my computer, and when I put on makeup I don’t really know what I’m doing.

Outside of writing, baking, and gaming, I love to ride horses and I’m a little obsessed with nail art. My favorite new polish is Menchie the Cat.


This blog is a release from the stringent, matter-of-fact writing I do every day at work. It is silly and fun here. Check out my “professional” website at megansmurray.net.

As for in-game contacts, my internet handle is always ShnowShnowflake, or Shnowflakes, based on availability. One of those are almost always available, but in the rare cases where they are not, I go as DyedBlack, Skye, or Shyke.

  • League of Legends: summoner name Shnow. My murf is Shnowflake, which I log into often to play with my Dad
  • Unison League: name Shnow
  • Pokemon TCG Online: username is DyedBlack

Games I’m not currently playing:

  • World of Warcraft
  • Final Fantasy XIV
  • Elder Scrolls Online: USA megaserver, character main is Shnow
  • Neopets and Howrse: Message me if you play these games! I don’t play but I used to be very hardcore, and I know I have valuable things that shouldn’t go to waste. Send me an email!

    How do you find the time to do all the baking? Do you do it yourself, or do you have help?

    • Megan Murray

      Sometimes I do have help from my family or roommates, whoever is around when I’m baking. As for finding the time, I really do most of my baking and video game playing during the summer.
