gollum cake 1

Sometimes I forget that Gollum can be a scary creature, but this realistic cake by Sweet Little Treat has refreshed my memory. Baker Karin spent about 30 hours working on the confection and did a top notch job capturing every detail in Gollum’s sneer. I’m particularly impressed by his teeth. It’s uncanny!

Karen made Gollum’s head for the Cakes from Middle-earth collaboration and used modeling chocolate, fondant, and edible paints to craft the cake. Those single strands of wispy hair? They’re made from sugar.

Check out more photos of the Gollum cake after the break, precious.

Elsa

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of the owner Cakes Cove and the awesome stuff she makes. So, when I heard that she’s doing a Kickstarter to help open a retail location, I jumped in to help.

Then she went and sent me the pictures of this new Elsa cake and now I really want to help her get a shop because if she’s making things like this at home, can you imagine what she’d do with a dedicated space? She has 4 days to go and she could use your help.

Head after the break to see more pictures of this amazing Elsa cake along with the project video.

smaug cake 1

Smaug spends most of his time covered in gold and looking menacing, but he occasionally takes a break to look fantastic in cake form. Baker Sheila Haughie of I Love Cakes By Sheila crafted this stunning dessert for a Cakes from Middle-earth Cake Collaboration in honor of  The Hobbit. The cake features Smaug flying towards Lake-town saying “I am fire, I am death” and spewing flames. Haughie placed LEDs inside the chest of the dragon to make it glow.

See more pictures of this spectacular cake after the break.

hhg cake

Mikey Mason got a pretty awesome cake for his birthday, and it came with a towel. Sort of. This creative Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy cake was decorated to look like a stack of towels, and the decorator did a smashing job. It was apparently made from two sheet cakes and lots of frosting with fondant for the guide.

If you eat a towel, is that the same as carrying a towel? Anyway, happy birthday, Mikey!

red riding hood cake 1

A classic fairy tale gets a steampunk twist in this detailed cake by Zorica’s Cake Art. The dessert was made for the Steampunk Sugar Geeks and depicts Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf with steampunk touches. The group includes over 40 sugar artists who worked together to come up with over 100 ideas for steampunk-themed desserts.

More pictures of the cake after the break.

star wars rebels cake

If being turned into a cake means a series has made it, then Star Wars Rebels is all set. The series has only been airing on Disney XD for about a month, but it already has fans who adore the characters and story (myself included). This cake was presumably made for one such fan by Fuget Pasta. The cake features the show’s logo and sculpted versions of the entire crew of the Ghost from Hera to Chopper. I just hope the baker didn’t add any icing that acts like Sabine’s explosive paint.

funko chucky

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Ant Roman at Nerdache Cakes.

One of the reasons is because she has such interesting ideas. I mean, how many people would think to make a cookie and fondant version of Funko’s POP! Chucky complete with blood splatter?

I kind of hope there’s a Bride of Chucky follow up soon.

Supernatural 200th party cake

Supernatural is crossing the 200 episode milestone this season. The show’s been on for ten years, and the Winchester brothers have survived death, countless monsters and each other. Things always change, but the trusty Impala, a.k.a. Dean’s baby, is still with them and gets them from town to town. It’s only appropriate that a party celebrating the 200th episode featured a big ‘ol Impala cake.

protein cake

It’s clear that redditor wolfie305 is a Browncoat. I’m guessing she’s partial to Kaylee.

What I do know for sure is that she made this cake and then posted the picture to Reddit with the following explanation:

“It was my boyfriend’s birthday today so I made him a cake. It was pretty much what we had for dinner”.

I’m already wondering what she has planned for next year.

elements cake

When a kid loves chemistry, there’s only one type of cake to make him for his birthday: one that features the Periodic Table of Elements. Redditor YesImatWork assembled this impressive sequence of cake cubes and decorated them perfectly for his nephew. Just how much does his nephew love chemistry? He already has a series of YouTube videos where he discusses his hobby.
