Dancing Groot Candy Cupcakes


Groot-themed everything is all the rage these days, and that certainly extends to edibles. DeviantArt user AnimeGeer sculpted a baby Groot and made a food safe mold. Then she made all these dancing Groot cupcake toppers with candy melts from that mold and dressed them up with a little green frosting. They look delicious and adorable.

Eleventh Doctor Latte Art

There’s an Italian restaurant in Japan called Belcorno, and they are responsible for some masterful pieces of latte art. We’ve featured work from them in the past, including Anna and Elsa of Frozen, and Belcorno recently tweeted this lovely Doctor Who image featuring Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor. Aww. I’ll never forget you, raggedy man.

It’s common knowledge that Spider-man does whatever a spider can, and that makes him pretty awesome in my book. So, in honor of Spidey, I’m going to make a Jell-O dessert that looks like his face. That isn’t weird, right? Nope. Totally cool. If you’d like to make a dessert that looks like Spidey, then you can use this 10-inch plastic mold to make all sorts of things. You can pre-order now for shipment in February 2015.

ramen grilled cheese

I’m pretty sure that many of you had to basically survive off of instant ramen at some point in your life, and I’m sure we can all agree that it can get a little boring.

However, it turns out there are lots of different things you can do with ramen and some of them are pretty clever. I mean, did you know that you could make ramen gnocchi? If not, you’ll want to check the Buzzfeed video out after the break as it highlights 11 ramen hacks that you can try at home.

One thing did puzzle me. Why is the guy in the video so bad at emptying the egg into the glass? Sheesh. Slow down a little.

If you fear spicy foods, then this bag of Ghost Pepper Cheddar Popcorn is most definitely not for you. Just FYI, the Ghost Pepper (Bhut Jolokia) is one of the hottest peppers in the world. It’s overall heat rating is around 850,000-1,400,000 SHU, and just for some proper context, a jalapeño pepper has a heat rating of round 3500 SHU. So yeah, this cheesy-but-spicy popcorn is only for folks with tastebuds that can handle extreme, borderline-insane spiciness.

guardians cake 1

When a birthday cake needs saving, one group of outlaws is willing and ready: the Guardians of the Galaxy. This dessert by The Regali Kitchen features Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Gamora, Star-Lord, and Drax figures atop a bright blue cake. They look like they’re protecting the cake from anyone who might destroy it. I hope the recipient was brave enough to remove the Guardians and cut the cake because I’m not sure that I’d risk ticking off Rocket even if he’s made from modeling chocolate.

homemade pumpkin coffee

If you’re swept up in the pumpkin-flavored craze, you may be dropping piles of dollars on coffee, lattes, and all the pumpkin things. Instructables user katvanlew can help you save money when it comes to pumpkin coffee because she’s figured out a recipe for making the beverage at home in a crock pot. She uses coffee, pumpkin puree, sweetened condensed milk, and ground cinnamon in the brew, and it sounds like it would taste really good. If you try the recipe, please report back and let us know how it is.

2-Player Gaming Mug Set


So, with these mugs you can be Player 1, and your significant other can be Player 2. Player 1 takes coffee in the morning, and Player 2 likes tea and has to do the dishes after breakfast (because Player 2 always forgets to the dishes. Yes, Player 1 is not bitter, but Player 1 is feeling a little annoyed about how forgetful player 2 is. Please do the dishes, Player 2!).

These old school NES-style mugs are also microwave and dishwasher safe too. Enjoy!
