This incredible life-size Legend of Zelda cake is 20-inches tall and consists of five separate cakes, 6.6 pounds of sugar, 2.2 pounds of vanilla buttercream, and almost 3-pounds of dark chocolate.

Emerald Stewart’s cake creation is not only impressive in size, but the attention to detail is really amazing. Zelda’s Majora’s Mask pendant was created using a 3D printed mold, and the rest of her armor and jewelry was designed using fondant.

The oft-used phrase “it looks too good to eat” definitely applies here, but I’ll always have this photo – get me a fork!

Check out more views of the fabulous Zelda cake after the break.

Yes, we live in an age where news outlets rush to scoop leaks on both iPhones and Oreos. Much like Apple, Nabisco is terrible at keeping a secret.

Redditor teddy-bear-the1st has a black cat who’s apparently sick of being a black cat for Halloween. This year it decided to get a costume rotation going and used the flour container to create a whole new demonic look to terrorize the gluten intolerant.

Pepsi has become the latest company associated with Back To The Future II to make products featured in the film a reality. Indeed, Pepsi Perfect will be an extremely limited edition offering staring on October 21, 2015—the same date Marty McFly arrived in the future and ordered the beverage.

PepsiCo’s senior director of marketing, Lou Arbetter tells The Hollywood Reporter:

“Fans have always been a little crazy about it. So we wanted to take advantage of the fact that Marty traveled to the future, to this month, and wanted to actually come out with the product.”

Pepsi plans to release the beverage in a limited run of only 6,500 bottles, available while supplies last. Fortunately for us, the 16.9 oz. bottle will retail for $20.15 which is a steal compared to Marty’s bill of $50 in the movie. And while the Pepsi Perfect bottles will be packaged in a special futuristic case, the cola will be the same formula as Pepsi with real sugar.

For those attending NYCC this weekend, the first 200 fans dressed as Marty McFly will receive Pepsi Perfect bottles on each day of the convention. Pepsi will also be celebrating with a booth inspired by “Café ’80s,” featuring a DeLorean and even a Wild Gunman arcade game.

YouTuber Astonishing Studios used LEGO bricks for possibly my favorite reason of all time: to make a working McDonald’s McFlurry Maker! The hand-churn style machine not only makes fresh vanilla ice cream, but it also contains two compartments for M&M’s and Oreo toppings.

cats with beer

Have you ever thought about what craft beer pairs best with your cat? There’s an catsontap Instagram account for that.

There doesn’t seem to be any kind of advertising angle to the project – only “a visual adoration of all things cats and beer”. However, we assume that there are a number ad agencies out there who are kicking themselves right now for not coming up with this idea years ago.

Hit the jump to see more.

disney princesses as hot dogs

Deranged crafter Gabriella Paiella (her words, not mine) and Anna Hezel have created gloriousness with their “Disney Princesses as Hot Dogs” project.

All you need are hot dogs, hot dog buns, processed American Cheese (you know the kind), condiments, a decent vegetable drawer and a little imagination.

I think Rapunzel’s corn silk hair is my personal favorite, but I’d love to see what else people come up with.

You can learn to make your own at Lucky Peach.

batman cookie cutter

Uh…some assembly is required. Fortunately, you can get cutters in sizes as big as 6.5-inches so you don’t have to make a whole bunch of them.

Plus, the Batman symbol on the version pictured above is upside down! That makes it a collector’s item. Better not eat it.
