It’s also for “cake”.

It’s especially for “cookie cake”.

This Cookie Monster Cake is the work of Confessions of a Cookbook Queen. It features three layers of sour cream pound cake and loads of chocolate chip cookie dough frosting. It’s also topped with cookies n’cream buttercream and ganache.

Then there’s the cookie garnish and Oreo googly eyes as a finishing touch.

Doctor Who and My Neighbor Totoro together on a cake? It’s perfection right down to the teeny Adiposes and Soot Sprites.

I’m conflicted though. I think this cake made by Little Cherry Cake Company is probably delicious, but I’d feel like a horrible person cutting into it. It’s so cute! Check out more pics after the break…

hodor cake

After the events of Game Of Thrones episode “The Door”, it’s a good thing Kristian Nairn has a big heart and a great sense of humor because it’s pretty clear both will be needed in the aftermath of the episode.

The love for both Kristian and Hodor came in the form of a cake from the W Hotel’s pastry chef Rachel Newman. Nairn was kind enough to share the cake with Isaac Hempstead Wright who plays Bran.

Knowing that these two are friends and how loved Hodor is makes me feel a lot better. Check out more pics after the break…

chemistry cake

Redditor mlukeman notes:

Made by my coworker – the icing contains Vit. B12 which causes it to glow yellow (in the dark) when exposed to a blacklight!

He didn’t say anything about people at the party transforming into the Hulk, but we have to assume that’s exactly what happened.


Baker and sugar artist Mike McCarey–owner of Mike’s Amazing Cakes–crafted this fun mashup-cake inspired by Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Well, now you can cross it off your bucket list.

The Sweet Spot, an Arizona-based bakery, crafted this impressive, chibi-style cake of everyone’s favorite Toydarian, Watto.

The cake stands at 16″, and it features a what was undoubtedly a tasty cinnamon buttercream filling and a cinnamon white chocolate ganache for icing.
