Fans of Tim Burton’s take on Alice in Wonderland will undoubtedly love this cake. It’s the work of Galia Hristova and the details are pretty astounding to say the least.

totoro tarts

Today in “This is so adorable, I could just nom it” are these super cute Totoro Black Sesame Tarts by Rachel from KawaiiSweetWorld. The tarts are made with black sesame pudding for Totoro’s grey fur and whipped cream for his tummy.

Rachel was also kind enough to film a tutorial video so you can make your own.

Check it out after the break.

For a moment, you might think that this cake from Estrele Cakes was a classic (but beautiful) four-tiered wedding cake. But once you turn it around, you’ll see that that the back of the cake features a fun SpongeBob scene.

I have to say, these surprise/compromise cakes are quickly becoming our favorite kind of wedding cake.

Take a closer look at the cake after the break…

freakshow-milkshakes

Update my Facebook profile now, because I am having a serious relationship with these milkshakes. Canberra, Australia-based café, Pâtissez is responsible for the milkshake to end all other milkshakes, and it is aptly named The Freakshow.

These dangerous looking desserts take the traditional recipe of milk and ice cream and stuff syrup, whipped cream, candy, pieces of cake, and your wildest dreams into a mason jar and then hand you a spoon. They’re as big as your head.

Yes. Please.

Aside from these gigantic sugar-rush drinks, Pâtissez creates a wonderful array of whimsical cakes. Check out more mouth watering pics after the break…

game_boy_cookies_by_ayaka_matsuno_1-620x620

Ayaka Matsuno recently whipped up a batch of retro nerdy cookies that are pretty flippin’ stellar. She made cookie versions of Game Boy cartridges, cassette tapes and even a little Super Famicom game console that’s hooked up to a TV-shaped cookie.

key_lime_pie_oreos

Oreo fans will be happy (or maybe a little sad) to hear that Nabisco has unleashed another new-ish Oreo flavor onto the world. These Key Lime Pie Oreos were spotted by Consumerist at a New York-based Price Chopper, and the Impulsive Buy reported spotting the new Oreos at a Texas H-E-B.

Basically, they’re a combination of Oreo s’mores graham cookie with last summer’s limeade creme.

There hasn’t been any official word on these Oreos, so there’s no telling what availability will be like in stores. However, you can buy them for ridiculous prices on Amazon.

oreo-thins.0.0

A new, thinner version of the classic Oreo cookie will be hitting supermarket shelves throughout the nation on July 13. Oreo Thins are described as a “light, crisp, and delicate” spin on the old-school Oreo–in fact, the new Oreo is about 7.5mm in thickness, while the classic Oreo is about 12.5 mm in thickness.

An Oreo spokesperson noted that while Oreo Thins will be a bit slimmer, they have a comparable “creme to cookie ratio” to the classic cookies. Also, while Oreo Thins boast fewer calories than your old-school Oreo, the spokesperson noted that new cookie shouldn’t be viewed as a “diet” treat. Interestingly, Oreo Thins are being marketed as a more sophisticated snack–something you could pair with coffee or tea. They aren’t meant to be twisted or dunked—because those barbaric activities are for commoners.

The new cookies will come in original, mint and “golden” flavors.

As of yesterday, July 1st, 7-Eleven is serving Sour Patch Watermelon Slurpees. Costs for the Sour Patch Kids-themed treat will vary depending on the location and the size of the Slurpee, but it should go for between $1.20 and $1.70.

Well, I know what I’m doing this summer. Deliciously sour (then sweet) brain freezes all day, everyday! Woohoo!

starbust smores

I hate to use the tired old line, but I think we’ve been eating Starbursts all wrong. It turns out we should have been roasting them all along. You can even make s’mores with Starbursts!

See the roasted, gooey, Starbursty-ness after the break.
