A couple that shoots zombies together, stays together. Etsy shop owner Plasticsmith has a ton of fantastic silhouette toppers for themed wedding cakes. Made from 1/8″ black ABS Plastic with non reflecting pebbled surface on the front and smooth back, these are sturdier than they look.

Available themes include the famous upside down Spider-Man kiss, Batman and Poison Ivy smooching, a lip-locked Joker And Harley (also Batman and Harley. The Joker won’t be happy) and even the most romantic moment shared between Han and Leia.

Check out all the super nerdy designs after the break.

The Weeping Angels are one of the more terrifying creatures in the Doctor Who universe, but everyone knows their secret at this point. Unfortunately, they’ve adapted and started hiding in cake. How can you possibly resist taking your eyes off the angel to take a bite?

Indeed, The Kitchen Overlord baked a cake with the silhouette of a Weeping Angle hidden inside.

It’s just one of the recipes you can find in her cookbook, Dining With the Doctor: Regenerated. It’s currently up for funding on kickstarter where a pledge of $29 will get you all the Whovian recipes you can handle.

Need a good landspeeder to navigate the treacherous deserts of Tatooine? Well, the X-34 is a solid choice, but I wouldn’t go with the version pictured above–mostly because it’s actually a cake.

Made by Les Gâteaux de Gilles, this particular cake features a stunning amount of detail.

Becca of Becca’s Edible Art bakery in Sacramento, California has joined forces with other baking rebels to celebrate all things Star Wars for May 4th (may the fourth be with you all!).

Becca recently created this Gamorrean Guard cake, and it’s clear that she has an eye for detail. It looks pretty tasty too. I swear if you gave me this cake I’d gobble it down like a Rancor snacking on a… well, you get the idea.

It’s always nice when we get tips on awesome new creations from Cakes Cove, and this one is extra special because it’s Star Wars-themed for a geeky May the 4th wedding.

I particularly like the Rebel and Empire logos in the flowers. Little touches like that always make me smile –– but then, I’m an unabashed fan of her work.

This wedding cake by Blossom Dream Cakes was designed as a big surprise for the groom. It has a romantic scene with red and pink birds on one side, but spin it around and it’s Batman, Captain America, Iron Man, and Hulk. The fact that the bride made this kind of compromise on such an important occasion bodes well for their marriage.

Not only are the contents geologically accurate, the inside is also properly layered. Check out more pics after the break…
