Nerd Cakes

luna ball cupcakes

Ant Roman of Nerdache Cakes is a favorite of ours and, with videos like this one on her Luna Ball Cupcakes, it’s pretty easy to see why.

Not only did she put her hair up in Usagi buns for the video, she uses terms like “piping tippy thing” and does a very cool time lapse of her building her fondant Luna Ball.

Check it out after the break.

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.

zelda wedding table 1

Looking for some gaming flair for a wedding or party? Etsy seller Just a Level has you covered if you’re a Legend of Zelda fan. She’s come up with treasure boxes for favors and cupcake toppers inspired by the Zelda games. The toppers feature the Triforce, rupees, and hearts from the life meter. They’re made from Perler beads, and since they’re not edible, the tokens could be a neat keepsake. Orders are shipped within 3-5 business days.

See a couple more pics of the entire Zelda spread after the break.

adipose cover

Food blogger Kimberly Chapman wanted to make a cake for a Doctor Who fan and thought she’d have a bit of fun with an Adipose Cake.

She started with two 5″ pans, a 4″ pan, chocolate cake mix and buttercream. Once the cakes were baked, she stacked them up and then then carved out an Adipose shape (the Adipose was seated so she didn’t have to worry about it having to be held up). Then she added a buttercream cover and let it firm up in the fridge.

From there, it was all about giving the Adipose a shape with a 50/50 mix of modeling chocolate and fondant.

As a bonus, when Kimberly had too much batter, she decided to make little mini Adipose. Needless to say, it ended up being the cutest edible Adipose invasion you ever saw.

If you want the full run down on this Adipose Cake, you can find it over at Eat The Evidence.

Super Mario hidden cake

Wedding cakes can be both elegant and geeky. If you and your spouse to be can’t decide on whether to have a classically decorated cake or a nerdy pattern, you can have both by splitting the cake’s design in half. This cake by Bittersweet’s captures the concept perfectly. It’s covered in shiny white frosting on one side and Super Mario Bros. on the other. The Super Mario Bros. side is definitely my favorite.
