gundam cake 1

There’s no Gundam quite like one made out of sugar. Mike’s Amazing Cakes is responsible for this beautifully sculpted dessert; it’s modeled after Gundam F91. I’m impressed by both the form and the paint. He didn’t know what the cake would be when he started it, and it sort of just developed. It’s incredible.

cyberman cake 1

It isn’t a party until Cybermen from Doctor Who show up, and this Cyberman cake was probably the life of the event he was made for. The confection by Happy Occasions Cakes looks like it rolled off the screen and onto a table; I wouldn’t be surprised if he started assimilating all the party attendees.

frozen cake 1

One lucky five-year-old recently got a birthday cake inspired by Disney’s Frozen. Cake Central member motowifey created the dessert, and I love the icy blue colors. She sculpted Elsa, Anna, and Olaf to go with the cake, and if you can believe it, this was the first time she’d ever done figure modeling. That’s impressive.

See a couple of detail shots after the break.

mario

This Super Mario Bros. cake not only looks like the game, it plays like it too. Rather than just being a cake that has static designs, they made a whole bunch of different pieces like pipes and mushrooms and then filmed the cake rotating with a Mario cookie running around one tier. It’s the game brought to sweet stop motion life.

HP Cake 1

Spending years at Hogwarts would be wonderful, but since that’s not possible, I’d be okay with simply eating it. Artcake.ru made this detailed cake featuring the school and characters from Harry Potter. Everyone shows up on the dessert! I can spot Harry, Hermione, Ron, Hagrid, Dumbledore, and maybe Malfoy. The stones on the castle especially caught my attention – they must have taken forever to paint.

See how the castle lights up after the break.

Tolkien books cake

Committing to reading the works of J.R.R. Tolkien is no small feat. Especially if you include The Silmarillion. We have a suggestion for another way you can enjoy his stories: you can eat them! This wedding cake by Bake My Cake features The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy in a delicious and beautiful stack. Looking at the size of the books, it seems as though she’s basing The Hobbit on the films by Peter Jackson.

science cake

If you’re like me, you probably cut your cake into slices of all sizes–the people I like get the big pieces, and the grumpy party-poopers get the tiny slivers. It’s only fair.

Anyway, there’s actually a proper, more scientific way to serve up cake. In this YouTube video by Numberphile, mathematician Alex Bellos shows us how to cut up a cake into proportional pieces that keep leftovers fresh.

So, yes, thanks to science, even the party-poopers get a decent slice. You’re welcome.

Lego movie cake 1

The LEGO Movie is full of fun characters, and Ant of Nerdache Cakes incorporated several of them into a birthday cake for a client. The confection features UniKitty, Batman, Wyldstyle, and Emmett. The cake is three tiers and frosted with vanilla buttercream and fondant decorations. I would want to preserve the little Princess Unikitty forever.

water drop cake 1

The clear bubble on this plate isn’t water or Jell-O, it’s a rice cake dessert. The jelly treat known as shingen mochi is made from spring water which is lightly sweetened and often served with a brown sugar syrup. Apparently, it melts in your mouth, which explains why it only holds the water drop-like shape for 30 minutes before melting. It’s not available to go because of its delicate state, and you can only find it in the Kinseiken stores in the Yamanashi Prefecture.
