If this cake doesn’t make you want to run off and immediately watch Big Hero 6, then you’re probably a robot (and not a friendly one like Baymax). This cake, made by I Love Cakes By Sheila, features a whole bunch of lovely details, including a cake topper that depicts Baymax hugging it out with Hiro Hamada.

This wonderful mashup cake by Little Cherry Cake Company has Mario characters standing in for everyone in The Nightmare Before Christmas. There’s Jack and Sally as Mario and Peach, Oogie Boogie as Yoshi, Lock Shock and Barrel as Shy Guys, Boo Ghosts, Zero, Dry Bones, Yoshi eggs and Tim Burton style-Piranha plants all beautifully rendered. It’s a cake made in gamer heaven, or is that gamer Halloween?

lego wedding cake

You need a good foundation to build a marriage on, and this Lego wedding cake is a great start. It was made by Cupcakes by SJ out of London.

Not surprisingly, Cupcakes by SJ has been flooded with requests. However, they’ve clarified that they aren’t a cake business, rather a family that bakes for friends and family only. Given the popularity of their work, perhaps they should reconsider.

Say hello to the “Hit Me chocolate cake.” Created by Thiago Silva, an executive pastry chef from New York, this treat features roasted white chocolate ice cream, layers of devil’s food cake and brownie, and a Liquid “Klondike” Bar on top (it’s basically a little chocolate shell, and when you tap it with your spoon, it cracks and releases all the good stuff so it soaks into the cake).

If you’re interested in trying it, you can head over to CATCH restaurant in New York City. Or, if you can’t afford a plane ticket to NYC, then you can just watch a short video of Instagrammer Chef Kelvin trying the cake for himself.

The Weeping Angels are one of the more terrifying creatures in the Doctor Who universe, but everyone knows their secret at this point. Unfortunately, they’ve adapted and started hiding in cake. How can you possibly resist taking your eyes off the angel to take a bite?

Indeed, The Kitchen Overlord baked a cake with the silhouette of a Weeping Angle hidden inside.

It’s just one of the recipes you can find in her cookbook, Dining With the Doctor: Regenerated. It’s currently up for funding on kickstarter where a pledge of $29 will get you all the Whovian recipes you can handle.

Need a good landspeeder to navigate the treacherous deserts of Tatooine? Well, the X-34 is a solid choice, but I wouldn’t go with the version pictured above–mostly because it’s actually a cake.

Made by Les Gâteaux de Gilles, this particular cake features a stunning amount of detail.

It’s good form to send a resignation letter when you quit a job, but a resignation cake is probably the best way break the news. KOLD-TV newscast director Mark Herman did just that and, not surprisingly, it wen’t over well.

Herman put it best when he said “you can’t be sad at a cake”.

It’s always nice when we get tips on awesome new creations from Cakes Cove, and this one is extra special because it’s Star Wars-themed for a geeky May the 4th wedding.

I particularly like the Rebel and Empire logos in the flowers. Little touches like that always make me smile –– but then, I’m an unabashed fan of her work.
