Donkey Kong has never looked so deliciously terrifying. I mean, seriously, isn’t that sugary simian rather intense looking?

Dirk with Cakez ‘n’ Fun did a bang-up job with this Donkey Kong cake. He made it for the Game On Cake Collaboration, which is a collective of sugar artists that are striving to make edible homages to the old-school video games we know and love. This cake is a winner for me.

Japanese food and craft blogger Caroline has just created the most adorable edibles in the history of ever: Tiny Kawaii Kittens Pawing At Candy Koi Fish!

The overwhelming cuteness of these little cat cakes are magnified as you discover each cat’s personality while trying to “rescue” the fish trapped in gelatin. Either the orange and white kitten had his fill or he just gave up and decided to nap.

I’m overwhelmed with adorable overload.

Well, this Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask Cake is definitely one of the most unique nerdy cakes we’ve ever seen.

Crafted by Las tartas del cachorro for the Game On Cake Collaboration, you can tell that a lot of thought went into the design. I love how it looks like Link’s popping out of the TV, ready to take on Skull Kid. And that tiny N64? Please. I’m sold. I need this cake, ASAP.

transforming cake

In another parenting win, Russell Munro built this transforming Optimus Prime cake for his son’s 6th birthday party. Do you see the overwhelming joy on his little face? I felt the same way watching the video the first time.

The transforming frame was 3D printed and then the cake and frosting were added to conceal the structure and motors.

Click below to watch the awesome robot-in-disguise-as-cake video and cheer along. There’s even a video of the mechanical structure being assembled.

This cake may not look like much…oh wait, yes it does.

Cat Cakes crafted this beauty of a cake, and it’s split into two distinct layers. The cake itself is meant to represent Mos Eisley, while the top is, of course, the Millennium Falcon (Rice Krispies treats wrapped in fondant). Thanks to Cat Cakes, I’m convinced I need a Falcon cake for my birthday.

compromise cake

This cake may be a comic book party in the back, but it’s all business up front. No wonder people call these mullet cakes.

I see what’s going on with this Rorschach test wedding cake by Rebekah Naomi Cake Design. Just ask the groom what he sees. If the answer is “I see a guy running. Running for his life.” you might want to try and get your deposit back for the reception.

As we’ve noted with other Harry Potter-themed cakes recently, Birthday Mischief Managed is a massive collaboration of talented bakers and food artists who came together in July to whip up cakes in honor of J.K. Rowling’s 50th Birthday. Top Tier Cakes made the Hogwarts library cake pictured here, and I have to say that it is spectacular. I want to shrink myself down and curl up with a book inside it. Read it then eat it.

Despite being widely panned by critics, the Attack on Titan live-action movie is making plenty of bank. The film’s cast were recently on hand at a press conference to celebrate the film’s “performance”–as well as highlight the beginning of the AoT TV series.

Satomi Ishihara, who played Hange in the film, had the honor of cutting the Titan cake—and she did like a proper Survey Corps soldier.

In honor of J.K. Rowling’s 50th birthday (and Harry Potter’s birthday)–which was on July 31st–food artists from around the world came together for a Harry Potter-inspired cake collaboration. This group, named Birthday Mischief Managed, was tasked with whipping up some wonderful Harry Potter cakes to commemorate the occasion.

Emma of Richard’s Cakes was part of the group, and she submitted this magnificent Hogwarts’ Kitchen cake. As you can see, there are tons of excellent little details scattered throughout the kitchen–my favorite has to be the screenplay for “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” on the kitchen table.
