kit-kat sandwich 1

Nick of Dude Foods is known for his weird food combinations, and I think the latest one takes the grand prize for being bizarre. He coated and deep fried two KitKat candy bars and then used them instead of bread for a grilled cheese sandwich. Yes, you read that right, it’s a deep fried KitKat bar grilled cheese sandwich. He claims it’s tasty:

Honestly, looking back at it right now it doesn’t even look that appetizing, but let me tell you, it was pretty damn good!

No, it doesn’t look appealing, and I’ll have to take his word that it’s edible because I don’t foresee putting that creation into my mouth anytime soon.

superhero cake 1

There are superhero cakes, and then there’s this magnificent creation by Delaney’s Cakes. This tiered dessert is a whopping six feet tall and is heavy enough that it required two men to carry it to the venue.

The cake features Wonder Woman, Superman, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Hulk, Batman, and Captain America. Paul Delaney said the secret of keeping it all together is a threaded rod that goes all the way through the cake and is anchored on the base. I’m still impressed it didn’t fall apart.

DIY Poké Ball Cake [Video]

poke ball cake

Are you ready to catch all of the desserts ever? Then you’ll need a Poké Ball cake. Fortunately, Cakes By ChoppA has shared a video tutorial on making one from vanilla cake. Even though I’m a novice when it comes to forming cakes into shapes, I have to say this looks like a pretty basic project that simply requires patience. If anything, the trickiest part looks like covering the Poké Ball in fondant.

Watch the instructional video after the break.

shark attack bowl

Are you ready to risk life and limb every time you want a handful of peanuts? Good, because this new shark attack bowl from ThinkGeek is only for the brave. The ceramic design holds 20 ounces and is safe to use in the dishwasher and microwave. You can fit all kinds of snacks in the gaping jaws, but I sort of think you’re required to pour in Goldfish crackers at some point.

Make your mornings more magical by drinking your coffee and tea from Disney’s Fairytale mugs. The lovely collection features Sleeping Beauty, Tiana, Mulan, Cinderella, and Pocahontas with their princes, and the art is stunning. Plus, you don’t see many of these characters on merchandise too often – especially John Smith!

tea towels

Kitchen spills and messes are inevitable. You can keep on top of them with the help of the Doctor and the TARDIS though thanks to these tea towels. They focus on one of the Tenth Doctor’s most famous quotes about timey wimey stuff from the episode “Blink,” and if you can’t bring yourself to clean up your kitchen counters with them, you can hang them on hooks or towel bars as decorations.

The towels are available for pre-order right now, and they’re scheduled to ship later this month.

wolverine pop

Whenever I see ice cream vendors with cartoon and geek themed popsicles, I’m always tempted to fork over money. It’s like some kind of instinct. I should know better though because the contents of the package rarely offer what’s advertised; instead, the eyes are wonky, the colors are melted together, etc. It might be traumatic for children.

Dorkly’s rounded up some cartoon popsicles that didn’t get it quite right, and the list features characters like Tweety Bird, Pikachu, Batman, and more. The pictures are fabulous and a little scary.

bag end cake 1

Bilbo and Frodo Baggins live in the coziest and tastiest hobbit hole in all of the Shire. Julia Hardy Cakes made this detailed cake for a man who is a huge Lord of the Rings fan. It nearly fills a 14-inch board and features a sculpted stone path, lots of flowers, and Frodo and Gandalf.

i am groot cake 1

The beauty of Groot’s “I am Groot” is that it can mean anything, including “Happy Birthday!” The baker behind Between the Pages made a baby Groot cake for that occasion and used modeling chocolate to build Groot around a wooden dowel base. The letters were cut from fondant, and the white flower pot is five eight inch round cakes that were sculpted.

The Guardians of the Galaxy-inspired design is creative and since it included crushed Oreo cookies (for the dirt), buttercream icing, and chocolate ganache, it was probably delicious too.

beer can cosplay

It’s true that you never know what you’ll see at Dragon Con. Cosplayers can get resourceful and turn to materials you wouldn’t expect – like this whole Star Wars crew. They crafted armor, accessories, and even Han in Carbonite from beer cans. I wouldn’t be too surprised if all the beer from these cans was consumed during Dragon Con.
