Divine Nerd Wedding Cake

In just under two weeks, Olga Philips of Divine Cakes made us all extremely jealous of her creativity and talent by creating a 6′ tall wedding cake that reveals itself to be “nerdy on the inside.” The happy couple came to Philips with a short deadline and very specific requests concerning what fun things would be referenced in their cake.

To her credit, she was able to pull off the assignment (and then some), delivering a cake that includes the starship Enterprise, the One Ring to rule them all, the smuggling ship known as Serenity, the Doctor’s TARDIS, a certain astromech droid, a Hippogriff from Harry Potter, a unicorn from a certain Harrison Ford film, a nod to Game of Thrones, and, of course, the iconic symbol of Batman.

Check out Olga Philips’ design sketch after the break!

Planning a sci-fi/comic-themed Halloween party? Well, you’re going to need some festive cups for the event. Sure, you could go the ol’ Solo cup route, but if you want to do something special you’re going to need some exceptional drinking vessels. For instance, the above Alien-themed pint glasses have a retro flair and can carry 16 ounces of your favorite beverage. They also feature scenes from the movie paired with the four-part lifecycle of the Xenomorph.

If chestbursting isn’t your thing, you could always go the classic Marvel route with some Deadpool-themed pint glasses.

Check out the back of the Alien glasses along with the Deadpool versions after the break…

This McDonald’s shaped like a lunchbox was a pop-up that appeared in Melbourne, Australia to promote some new additions to the menu including four new wraps and a new salad. Those who happen by the lunchbox location will be able to try Mini Steak Taster Wraps. It’ll be in Melbourne through Friday and then heading on to Perth, Adelaide, and Sydney.

This past week, the Internet was all abuzz with talk that Nabisco might release a new limited-edition Red Velvet Oreo flavor in the near future. Of course, the internet has been fooled before with fake flavors—but this might be the real deal.

Check out the evidence after the break…

A built-in ice dispenser is convenient during the hot summer months, but at this time of year a candy dispenser is even better. Redditor dericpeace decided to try out the idea and the result is the stuff of childhood dreams.

Literally just came to me the other night, and I said, I don’t really use the ice maker for ice, and I wonder…the next morning I spent about 40 dollars at Rite-Aid, and the woman who checked me out thought I was an idiot. Probably still am, but when I poured in the first batch of reese’s cups, and they just poured out like I hit the candy jackpot, I was beside myself. I love candy, I love making things easier, and making non-useful things (to me) more so. That’s really it.

Clearly, that Rite-Aid cashier doesn’t recognize genius when she sees it.

Every Halloween I attempt to carve a simple, smiley-faced pumpkin, and you know what happens? It never turns out how I want it to look. The smile’s totally off every time–it looks like the pumpkin took a hockey puck to the face. But this year is going to be different. Halloweencostumes.com has a bunch of free pumpkin printable stencils that you can use when you’re carving your pumpkin including the Captain America logo, the House Stark sigil, the Ghostbuster logo and more. The best one is the Luigi death stare though. So go on and start carving some nerdy pumpkins!

This dress was made for Chocolate Week UK and, as you might have guessed, it’s made entirely of chocolate. Caroline McCall, wardrobe designer for Downton Abbey, created this tasty wonder in an Art Deco style over the course of three months using 132 pounds of chocolate. It looks incredible, but I’d imagine you’d have to avoid the sun like a vampire or risk it all melting into a pile of goo.

If you’re like me, you probably thought there was no way that KFC could ever top the Double Down. For the uninitiated, the monstrous Double Down sandwich was basically bacon and cheese smashed between two pieces of fried chicken.

Well, I was wrong. They went and added more meat.

KFC Korea unveiled what they’re calling the “Zinger Double Down King”. It features a burger patty that’s stuffed between two chicken patties, and yes, the bacon and cheese is still in there somewhere. It’s insane. It’s horrendous. But… but… I can’t look away.
