If Doctor Who was an ’80s cartoon, what would it have looked like? Would there have been more neon? A plethora of acid-washed jeans, perhaps? Well, there’s a good chance that it would’ve looked something like the Doctor Who mug pictured above.
Featuring a distinct, 1980s cartoon-style theme, this ceramic, 11-ounce Doctor Who mug portrays some of the show’s classic enemies (and the TARDIS) in a fun, colorful animated manner. And you know what? I kinda like it. I say they do a whole new series in ’80s cartoon-form! I’m going to go write a letter to the BBC right now. Be right back.

A new baker of nerd-flavored treats has come onto our radar, and we’re in love. Stefania of Sweet & Geek has a dazzling array of creative cakes and cookies on her blog including the Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 Manual pictured above. That cake was made from sponge cake soaked in limoncello and stuffed with lemon filling; she created the book and decorations with sugar paste. Each gem and attachment was painted by hand. Wow.
Stefania gives that level of attention to each of her creations and you’ll find she’s made Doctor Who cupcakes, Bag End, baked Cthulhu, 1up mushrooms, and so much more. It’s easy to lose hours flipping through the treats on her blog.
Check out more of her geek themed desserts after the break.

Here’s one that goes under the category of “unexpected surveillance”.

The product description goes on to mention that it date and time stamps:
“If you are attempting to capture incriminating footage that you want to use against somebody in a court of law; the footage must have time and date stamps. Lucky for you, this camera marks all recorded footage with just that; making everything you record usable evidence in your favor.”
I guess if you need a nerdy hidden camera to gather incriminating evidence (especially about stolen cookies), this is the jar for you.

Butter dishes used to be one of those kitchen items I just didn’t understand. However, once I grew up and had people over for dinner who actually like to put butter on things, it all made sense. And, if you have to use one, why not do what Twitter user @GenTheWise did and make it geeky and awesome?! She went to a paint-your-own ceramics shop called Mini Me over the weekend and whipped up a TARDIS butter dish. She did a great job painting the container – it’s making me want to paint a whole set of TARDIS dishes.
Tara Theoharis aka The Geeky Hostess wants to make nerdalicious sprinkles for all of your baking needs. Police boxes, steampunk nuts and gears, and lightning bolts to top your confections.
To that end, she has a new Kickstarter project to help create said sprinkles and she’s already got major companies ready to make them. Now she just needs the backing.
The reward prices are very reasonable for what you get, she includes recipe cards and she’s working with other geeky foodies to help bring these recipes and sprinkles to you.

This Doctor Who TARDIS mug is bigger on the inside and the outside for those who aren’t messing around when it comes to their morning coffee. It holds 30 ounces of liquid which is three times a standard mug’s capacity. Think of all the time you’ll save going back to the kitchen for refills when this thing is taking up half your desk.

Lady Cassandra sugar cookies created by the BBC America staff.
Geeks do amazing things with gingerbread. I am floored every year by the creative designs and decorations people come up with, and this TARDIS decorated for Christmas is freaking delightful. Redditor Fortunekitty is actually a cake artist who works at a bakery and that helps to explain why this spaceship looks so beautiful. She wrote a handy tutorial in case you’d like to put your own TARDIS together; as far as I’m concerned, gingerbread is year-round fun and not just limited to the holidays. Happy baking!
