Or geekily awesome. Either way works for me.
Now, about cakes…there is something to be said about throwing flour and sugar together and then allowing the heat of the oven to turn the mixture into something that will make your mouth water. Of course, there is more to baking and decorating cakes than that, but you get the idea. Now what if you can get your geek on, have your cake, and eat it too?
I just saw an awesome list at Tor’s blog1, which features some of the most eye-catching cakes that I have seen in a while. You know what happened next – I had to scour the web for more cakes. I don’t know why I do these things, really. I just end up committing the sixth sin2, wanting to have the cakes for myself. Since it is going to be rather hard for me to get my hands on these awesome creations, I have to be content with this list; and it is my pleasure to share it with you.
Stargate fans – stare and drool. Isn’t that blue just mesmerizing? The symbols look right on as well. I am no baker, but it seems to me that if you have decent baking skills, you can pull this one off. After all, you do not need to carve and mold all that much. It’s simple but a win anyway.3
LEGO Star Wars Cake
Okay, that’s more cute than astounding, but hey, LEGO + Star Wars is always a win! This cake was made by Brenda’s Cakes. In case you’re wondering, the figures are made of chocolate clay. YUM!4 We have more Star Wars cakes and cupcakes, by the way.
Star Trek Voyager and Borg Cube Cake
Who’s willing to bet that the couple who had this wedding cake were Star Trek fans? That would have been one wedding that I wouldn’t have minded going to. 5
Binary Birthday Cake
Well, fancy that! I stumbled upon another binary cake. This time, it was created for some geek’s birthday. Now, I don’t have to tell you how old the guy – or gal – was when this cake was made for him/her, do I?6
Not all geeks like to code. Not all geeks know how to code. But if you are a coder, then you will definitely appreciate this cake. Now tell me what you think of the code?7 If you like this cake, you might also want to see an old entry of ours – Nerd Birthday Cake. Come on, you know you want to see it. ;)
PlayStation 3 Cake
There is no doubt in my mind that the PlayStaion 3 is one of the best investments that one can make. A powerful video game console, a Blu-Ray player, an mp3 player, a movie player, a picture viewer – name it, the PS3 will do it! What better way to pay homage to this ultimate device than to create a cake that looks just like it? Oh, and don’t forget – it comes with one controller as well!8
Xbox360 Carrot Cake
Let it not be said that we favor only one brand. After discovering the PS3 Cake, I deliberately went on a hunt for something made by Microsoft. Well, not the cake, but the real item. You know what I mean. So here is a carrot cake that looks like an Xbox360. All I can say is that I like carrot cake.9
So you are missing your weekly dose of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Aside from airing your own re-runs, you can also have a cake like this made for yourself. You have to admit, all that red really hits you right in the face. The melting candle and the spike right through the cake’s top layer adds more than a little punch as well. Get in touch with Cake Nouveau to have one made!10
Holy…! That’s exactly what I was thinking when I saw Hellboy – albeit the cake version. Creator tchitwood made this one for his first cake show competition – That Takes the Cake 2011. Not bad for a first timer, huh?11
As far as I am concerned, this one takes the cake. Err…you know what I mean. This cake definitely kicks the butt of all other cakes out there. Personally, I prefer the dragon to be more red than orange, but one can’t really say anything bad about this cake. If this is anything to go by, Mike’s Amazing Cakes12 should be given the gold medal for making the awesomest cakes!
Got your own cake to show off? Why not send it to us?13
