Few season finales are as memorable as Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s season 3 closer, “The Best of Both Worlds“. Not only did it reinvent the Borg, but it ended on a high-stakes cliffhanger with Captain Picard having been assimilated into the Borg Collective and Riker giving the order to fire on his now-former commanding officer and friend. It’s a sizzling bit of telly even now, and it elevated The Next Generation from being thought of by fans as “that other Star Trek show” to being considered… well, Star Trek.

A perfect moment, then for Paul Redmond of Purple Feather Cake Design to immortalize in cake form for his entry to the Cake: The Final Frontier celebration (the same celebration that gave us that awesome chocolate Scotty bust). Opting to recreate the head of Locutus – Captain Picard’s Borg alter ego – this thing is so detailed that when the page first loaded on my computer I thought I might be looking at a makeup test from the show itself, applied to a dummy or prop head. But nope! That’s the cake!

Paul had some trouble getting the cake to Las Vegas for this year’s official Star Trek convention. ” I shipped my piece over but alas transwarp conduits haven’t been discovered yet and he didn’t quite materialize in one piece.” A shame. Good thing it didn’t happen to the real Locutus. He’ll bite your head clean off, man. Check out more photos of the cake below. [click to continue…]

Hank The Caketopus


Annie Greenslade of The Sweet Life Chef has unleashed her talents on this cake which depicts Hank the Octopus resting atop a bed of algae.

The creation was part of a collaboration of cake artists around the world to promote the new Disney/Pixar film Finding Dory and to remind people to “just keep swimming”… something we assume many a cake artist will have to do after comparing their own work to this masterpiece. Check out a close-up below. [click to continue…]

we got this

The tiny but brave men and women of the cake fire department are always there when an old person has a birthday. We salute you.

Of course, after eating it Redditor HeyShutUpMom‘s head was turned into a giant donut by devil Ned Flanders. As you’ll see in the image below, it was probably worth it. [click to continue…]


Not much is known about this cat. All we have are these pictures of it really, really enjoying a cake in a little birthday hat. That’s all the Internet needed.

The entire series of photos can be seen below. Let’s assume that the cake is made from some with cat-safe ingredients. With that in mind, you can commence cuteness overload.

raindrop cake

Darren Wong has brought the Raindrop Cake (which we’ve seen before in Japan) to Brooklyn, where it is getting a lot of attention.

The unique creation is made from “a precise mixture of agar (algae gelatin) and spring water”, resulting in a product that has the texture, look and taste of a giant raindrop. Although the texture is its main draw, a “very sweet nutty flavor” is achieved by serving it with koromitsu syrup (a black sugar cane) and a roasted soy flour.

The cake, which is described as not quite liquid and not quite Jell-O, debuted at Brooklyn’s Smorgasburg, although it will also be available at various additional locations:

Saturdays in Williamsburg’s Kent State Park, and starting May 1, Sundays in Prospect Park’s Breeze Hill. Hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. or until the vendors sell out. The Raindrop Cake is also available at Magick City, 37 Box Street in Greenpoint.

Check out a video on the creative process below, where you’ll likely find that it initially looks like a breast implant.

In between breaks from playing Neko Atsume, cat lovers in Tokyo’s Ikebukuro neighborhoood have created yet another adorable way to celebrate kitties in food form.

Tokyu Hands, a store that sells fashionable home goods, holds an annual event called Neko Roji at its Ikebukuro store where everything is cat-themed — from household appliances to yummy foods.

In collaboration with Patisserie Swallowtail, a local confectionery that’s made headlines in the past thanks to their animal and anime-themed sweets, Tokyu Hands is releasing cakes based on six cats—each with different ingredients.

Check out the cakes in detail below.

Look at this fruit.

Only it isn’t fruit. No, what you are looking at is actually an assortment of cakes, pies and tarts.

This delicious, wonderful trickery would make for one heck of a gift basket on April Fools’ Day. Christine McConnell, author of the Deceptive Desserts cookbook, crafted it—but she didn’t just stop there. Check out more of her work below.

Cake wizard and DIY fan Kelly Mindell whipped up this clever and probably incredibly delicious dessert ruse. At first glance, it looks like a bowl of Froot Loops, but it’s actually a tasty cake WITH Froot Loops! Breakfast has never been better.
