panda maker

In our continuing appreciation for cutters that turn bread into adorably shaped pouches, let me present the Panda Sandwich Pouch Maker.

I mean, if you’re going to eat a sandwich, eating a panda’s head is so much more fun. Wait, what?

These wondrous Star Wars sandwich makers are from Kotobukiya. They don’t just cut the bread—they seal them to make little pockets. No stray jelly is getting out of these things! You can preoder your choice of a Stormtrooper, Darth Vader, or R2-D2 with delivery expected in July.

See more examples after the break.

doctor who rolling pin

It’s no secret that we think embossing rolling pins are pretty cool—but they’re even better when they’re geeky.

Now you can emboss your dough with Doctor Who, Adventure Time, Green Lantern, or Harry Potter designs. Cute and easy. I love it.

An 8-inch by 6-inch gelatin mold of Deadpool’s severed head with exposed brain is for more than just making awesome shaped chocolates, cakes, etc. You could really have fun with this.

Add word bubbles, incorporate tacos, make his head out of chocolate (or ice), smash it, then melt it back together again. Maybe even dress up as a headless Deadpool then throw your Jell-O heads around at parties. The possibilities are endless.

The mold is available for pre-order now with shipment slated for June 2015.

Your Mom probably warned you not to play with knives, but artist Li Hongbo chose to play with them just the same and created some beautiful artwork in the process. Images are cut from the knives of the blades to leave a negative space in the metal with images of animals like frogs, bears, and human skeletons. It’s currently part of an art show called Contemporary by Angela Li. The artist says it’s to serve as a warning that humans are destroying ourselves and our world through poor treatment of animals.

These gingerbread cookie cutters are way more exciting than the standard ones with the little girl and boy. Now you can have Darth Vader, Chewbacca, C-3PO, Boba Fett, Yoda and a Stormtrooper as tasty gingerbread treats. Just think how cool these guys will look running around the yard of your gingerbread house. Each measures 4″ tall x 3 1/4″ wide and is an officially licensed Star Wars product.

When the R2-D2 Measuring cup set came out, I thought it was cute and I love R2, but I’ve always been a fan of black R2 units and black goes way better with my kitchen.

Luckily, ThinkGeek has this exclusive Star Wars R2-Q5 Measuring Cup Set. The body is built from 4 measuring cups and the utility arms detach into measuring spoons. The dome can measure out both a 1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon.

I think my kitchen is going to get some upgrades this holiday.
