Thanks so much for this! My fiancé loves Zelda and I was looking for an interesting way to give him a Zelda themed cake.
Wasn't this on Snack or Die.com?

I now have a reason to learn the Zelda theme song on flute!<br />
learn it on the orcirina i have a zelda one 8D
Learn Hyrule Field from Ocarina of Time, it's THE&nbsp;BEST.<br />
It'd be brilliant if I&nbsp;could find the score for flute! Sadly I cannot, any ideas?<br />
Transpose!&nbsp;Take a piano version, look at the top notes, and bring it into a playable key!<br />
And you want me to transpose? *chuckles*<br /> <br /> Oh wait you were serious.<br /> <br /> Well, at least I&nbsp;have a mother who can play piano and a bit of flute, I'll ask her!<br />
Isn't flute in C anyway?<br /> So you could already play it...<br />
i think its ingrained on my brain forever, so much time galloping across that field :)<br />
That is my all-time favourite song from any game...<br />
The game is legendary, any gamer from that era knows it!<br />
Looks delicious!! I'm not Zelda's fan, but you have awesome cupcakes! You have my vote!!<br />
how can you possibly not be a zelda fan... i<br />
Well, I'm from Colombia. Super Mario Bros. and Megaman were the famous ones!<br />
cheers love! :)<br />
i would prefer any legend of zelda game&nbsp;over any mario game!&nbsp;
actually i would prefer zelda over any game!
This is really awesome!&nbsp; Great job.&nbsp; Zelda seems to be a common theme this valentines day :)<br />
