FridayTea

Have you ever grabbed a nerdy mug in the afternoon to make yourself a warm cup of tea and thought to yourself, “if only there was a way to make this geekier?” Well, there is thanks to Friday Afternoon Gourmet Teas! The Etsy shop specializes in creating tasty geeky tea blends and can even make you a nerdy custom blend if you have a particular theme in mind.

Their tea themes include Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, and more. All of their teas are loose leaf and they even sell geeky tea infusers too (like the above Star Trek and Doctor Who themed versions).

See some of Friday Afternoon’s geekiest teas after the break!

There are some big differences between American and British tastes in food. One American Whovian and her friend decided to see just how different, so she tried out the distinctly British foods (including concoctions like fish fingers and custard of course) that have been mentioned or eaten on the show.

See the videos after the break to find out the results.

Divine Nerd Wedding Cake

In just under two weeks, Olga Philips of Divine Cakes made us all extremely jealous of her creativity and talent by creating a 6′ tall wedding cake that reveals itself to be “nerdy on the inside.” The happy couple came to Philips with a short deadline and very specific requests concerning what fun things would be referenced in their cake.

To her credit, she was able to pull off the assignment (and then some), delivering a cake that includes the starship Enterprise, the One Ring to rule them all, the smuggling ship known as Serenity, the Doctor’s TARDIS, a certain astromech droid, a Hippogriff from Harry Potter, a unicorn from a certain Harrison Ford film, a nod to Game of Thrones, and, of course, the iconic symbol of Batman.

Check out Olga Philips’ design sketch after the break!

Here’s the perfect desktop accessory to keep cold drinks at the ready. We’ve previously featured a mini TARDIS fridge (think the episode “Flatline” only with Dr. Pepper trapped inside), but this one comes complete with a blinking light and enough space to hold 18 canned drinks. It can also be switched over to keep foods warm. This is an officially licensed Doctor Who product with a carrying handle, removable shelf, and little rubber feet. It measures 19″ (21.5″ to top of light) by 10.5 by 11.25″.

TARDIS pumpkin

When DeviantArt user EmpressofSquee, a.k.a. Melissa, got inspired to make a Doctor Who pumpkin for Halloween, she didn’t go with the usual approach. Instead of carving the exterior of the TARDIS onto a pumpkin, she turned it into the TARDIS control room. It looks pretty awesome, and I bet it looked even cooler when she added a glow stick for lighting.

who cupcake wrappers and toppers 1

I love the look of decorated cupcakes but rarely have the patience to attempt anything that requires a piping bag. Etsy seller Charming Madness has a simple solution for decoration: she has cupcake wrappers and toppers. Her fun Doctor Who designs feature the TARDIS, Daleks, Weeping Angels, the Twelfth Doctor, and Clara Oswald. You only have to download and print them, then wrap them around your fully baked cupcakes.

See the  rest of the Doctor Who designs after the break.

olive garden
While we sometimes lament when brands on social media try to be “cool” and fail, it’s so much more fun to cheer the accounts that get it so very right.

In the case, it’s the twitter account for Olive Garden.

In the lead up to season 10 of Supernatural, they started sending out awesome SPN related tweets. Clearly, there’s a fan behind them, and it made them so much fun to read and definitely gave me a reason to like them as a brand.

Here’s what’s extra fun — they didn’t stop at Supernatural. Doctor Who and Sleepy Hollow got a little love, as well. It was a neverending Fandom bowl!

Check out some of my favorite tweets from last night and today after the break.

doctor who cake

I swore I wasn’t going to go “Awwww” about my posts today, but this one got me right in the feels.

U.S. Army member and Redditor diablo8683 just returned from a deployment to find this utterly adorably Doctor Who cake that his kids made for him.

The chubby little fondant Weeping Angel, the marshmallow Adipose, Lady Cassandra, and that squat little TARDIS. I just…yeah, I had an ovary ‘splosion.

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.
