Sugar Rush

chocolate-chip-soda

Ok, as far as strange drinks go, I think I can get behind this whole “chocolate chip cookie sparkling water” thing. After all, I like sparkling water and I’m obsessed with chocolate chip cookies. This unique beverage was spotted at an H-E-B (a supermarket chain in Texas), according to The Impulsive Buy. However, as a connoisseur, I know what a good cookie should taste like and I’m pretty sure this won’t measure up. Ah, but who am I kidding–I’m true chocolate chip cookie fiend, so I’m at least open to trying it.

If you’re a fan of colorful, candy-like jewelry, then you’ll definitely dig Onch‘s work. The Los Angeles accessories designer has a knack for creating bright, showy jewelry, and he has a celebrity following too (Nikki Minaj wore his rainbow swirl cone necklace to the 2011 VMAs). Recently, Sweet Los Angeles, a candy boutique, released a a special candy bar that was designed by Onch. The Monchie bar features delicious white chocolate and it’s chock full of gummy bears, Sour Patch Kids and Fruity Pebbles cereal. It honestly looks like a work of art.

Yes, this squee-inducing Star Wars cake is just about the cutest darn thing I’ve seen since Muppet Babies was on TV (I think I’m dating myself with that reference). The You’ve Been Cupcaked Bakery crafted this fine cake, and it’s just too fracking adorable: I especially love that Yoda is Chewie’s little doll, and that Han’s blaster shoots bubbles.

root_beer_oreos

There have been a lot of limited edition Oreo flavors this year. They’ve come in varieties that range from fruit punch Oreos to Limeade Oreos and now it appears that root beer float Oreos are a thing.

This one actually sounds like a really good idea. Unfortunately, the news hasn’t been confirmed yet, despite the above pic that’s been floating around on Instagram (the person who snapped the photo claimed they saw the cookies at Publix). There’s been some talk of the cookie being a hoax after so many were fooled by the fake fried chicken flavor that made the rounds on the Internet in recent weeks. However, it would have to be an elaborate one, since Got The Munchies reviewed the cookie.

Ok, it’s pretty hard to believe that the above Megatron is actually a cake topper! Bakery Cakez ‘n’ Fun totally nailed all the details, and it honestly looks more like a toy than an edible delicacy.

This R2-D2 cake by Mira que tarta, is a definite winner in my book. The details are great, and I’m just waiting for the little guy to start beeping at any second.

If the plan is to do a Super Mario cake for your wedding, you might as well go big.

Just curious, do I have to eat the whole cake in order to rescue the princess? Because I’m totally up to the task.

aerosol cake

John McCallum and Brooke Nowakowski have done something brilliant: they’ve made Spray Cake. After much trial and error, the two Harvard students have produced a type of cake batter you can put in an aerosol can and spray into a baking dish. It gets better because it’s also microwaveable. You could nuke a cupcake in about 30 seconds. Of course, you could also eat it straight from the can.

The duo are currently in the process of patenting the idea and have already found a seller. Once they find a manufacturer, it’s only a matter of time before this product will be available on grocery store shelves.

As for the taste, bakery star Joanne Chang has tasted the cakes and given them her seal of approval. I predict they’ll make buckets of money with this invention.

This Totoro cake, created by Mike’s Amazing Cakes, is pretty darn cute. But where’s Catbus? Now that’s a birthday cake I want to see.
