Nerd Cakes

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!

Gundam fans can now enjoy a slice of green tea flavored cake modeled after the MS-06 Zaku II mobile suit. They use sponge cake to make the shape and fill it with coffee and green tea flavored mousse. It also comes with a Beam Saber for slicing and a chocolate monoeye. It’s available for order now (in Japan) with delivery in mid-December.

mum

This cake created by Black Cherry Cake Company turns Murray the Mummy from Hotel Transylvania into a tasty treat. It looks just like the animated character and it even comes with its own special effects since his eyes light up and glow an eerie green.

Ghibli - my neighbor totoro cupcakes

The creations of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli lend themselves to being re-created in the world of desserts. Characters like Totoro, Catbus, and Kiki are cute and look good on confections – like these cupcakes! These My Neighbor Totoro sweets were made for Westley J. Wong by his girlfiend, and the Totoro, Catbus, and soot sprite designs are simple and perfect.

Supernatural 200th party cake

Supernatural is crossing the 200 episode milestone this season. The show’s been on for ten years, and the Winchester brothers have survived death, countless monsters and each other. Things always change, but the trusty Impala, a.k.a. Dean’s baby, is still with them and gets them from town to town. It’s only appropriate that a party celebrating the 200th episode featured a big ‘ol Impala cake.

who cupcake wrappers and toppers 1

I love the look of decorated cupcakes but rarely have the patience to attempt anything that requires a piping bag. Etsy seller Charming Madness has a simple solution for decoration: she has cupcake wrappers and toppers. Her fun Doctor Who designs feature the TARDIS, Daleks, Weeping Angels, the Twelfth Doctor, and Clara Oswald. You only have to download and print them, then wrap them around your fully baked cupcakes.

See the  rest of the Doctor Who designs after the break.

Capture

It looks like a cake with a lot of chocolate pieces added all over the place, but there’s more to this cake than what you see at first glance. It’s actually an old-fashioned zoetrope that uses the positioning of all the pieces of chocolate combined with flickering lights to make it look like the chocolate is animated when the cake spins.

This particular zoetrope can be found at Phillip Island Chocolate Factory near Melboure, Australia. It’s absolutely mesmerizing to watch.

See it in action after the break…

protein cake

It’s clear that redditor wolfie305 is a Browncoat. I’m guessing she’s partial to Kaylee.

What I do know for sure is that she made this cake and then posted the picture to Reddit with the following explanation:

“It was my boyfriend’s birthday today so I made him a cake. It was pretty much what we had for dinner”.

I’m already wondering what she has planned for next year.
