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.

doctor who cake

I swore I wasn’t going to go “Awwww” about my posts today, but this one got me right in the feels.

U.S. Army member and Redditor diablo8683 just returned from a deployment to find this utterly adorably Doctor Who cake that his kids made for him.

The chubby little fondant Weeping Angel, the marshmallow Adipose, Lady Cassandra, and that squat little TARDIS. I just…yeah, I had an ovary ‘splosion.

elements cake

When a kid loves chemistry, there’s only one type of cake to make him for his birthday: one that features the Periodic Table of Elements. Redditor YesImatWork assembled this impressive sequence of cake cubes and decorated them perfectly for his nephew. Just how much does his nephew love chemistry? He already has a series of YouTube videos where he discusses his hobby.

Cereal Cake

The current trend in food seems to be all about making things the biggest, or craziest. Charles Phoenix pushes boundaries on both of those fronts, and he’s outdone himself with a six-layer milk soaked cereal cake covered in Frosted Flake frosting. The idea is fun, but it doesn’t sound appealing to me. Mostly, the idea of that much sugar makes my teeth hurt. I think that means I’m getting old.

Phoenix used the following cereal/cake combos for each layer:

Apple Jacks with Spice Cake
Trix with Blue Velvet Cake
Cinnamon Toast Crunch with Yellow Cake
Peanut Butter Crunch with Chocolate Cake
Froot Loops with Red Food Colored White Cake (Red Velvet Cake was not BRIGHT enough!)
Cocoa Puffs with White Cake

It’s certainly colorful!

Get a closer look at the insane cake in the video after the break.
