Nerd Cakes

R27

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.

extinction cake

Redditor ChristineHMcConnell took Earth Day to dark places by sharing the “Extinction Cake” she made a few months back. It accurately depicts the impact of the Chicxulub asteroid 66 million years ago—the event that many believe is responsible for wiping out most of the dinosaurs.

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

This hunky hero is the magnificent confection of master cake maker Ant Roman of Nerdache Cakes. Her Star-Lord cake inspired by Guardians of the Galaxy has an amazing amount of detail.

We’ve featured Nerdache Cakes many times in the past, which is why we’re excited about her Kickstarter project. The goal is to open a “Nerdache Cakes Bakery + Café” where patrons can enjoy “level-up inducing treats that are decadent, fun, and a nod to your favorite icons in pop culture nerd-ery”.

There are plenty of fantastic incentives for backers, including Nerdache Box subscriptions (think of it like Loot Crate but with noms).

Check out her project video along with more Star-Lord cake pics after the break.

Now that’s a creepy cake!

Created by the Vegas-based bakery Mitchies Munchies, this zombie head cake was inspired by The Walking Dead. As you can see, the details are top-notch, and everything is edible!

Mitchies made the cake for The Baking Dead, which is a fun collaboration of over 50 bakers, sugar and cake artists. However, the project does have a serious side. Because The Walking Dead often deals with themes regarding domestic violence, the Baking Dead is also focused on spreading the word about domestic violence prevention and awareness.

If you want to see a little bit of edible perfection, you don’t have to look much further than this My Neighbor Totoro cake by Rozie Powell of Cinnamon Square.

The gang’s all here and everyone’s so cute that I wish I could be miniaturized to go live in this cake. Well, at least until the eating started.

Anne Heap with Pink Cake Box made this “Walking Dead edible sculpture” as part of her work with The Baking Dead. It’s a collaboration of over fifty sugar and cake artists who are creating works of edible art designed to celebrate AMC’s The Walking Dead and also spread awareness about domestic violence prevention (since domestic violence is a running theme in the show). As you can tell from the cake, the level of detail is incredible, and I have to say that Anne Heap is one extremely talented sugar artist. What do you think?

Fernanda-Abarca-Cakes-Home

When you give Dreamworks’ animator Fernanda Abarca access to baking equipment, incredible things happen. This artist’s talents extend beyond the computer to the kitchen, where she transforms some of our favorite characters into actual 3D edible creations.

Last year she created the adorable Toothless from How To Train Your Dragon 2. Now she’s focused on the recently released movie Home. It follows a young girl who helps this super cute purple alien run from his own people. Made for the company toast, Fernanda totally nails this characters expression in this too-good-to-eat dessert.
