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.

superhero cake 1

The trend of splitting wedding cakes in half continues, and this design by Mitchies Munchies is elegant, geeky, and wonderful. The cake features fancy white fondant and orchids on one side with Wolverine’s claws ripping through (my favorite part!). The opposite side highlights Captain America, Spider-Man, Batman, and Thor. The Hulk hand was carved from clay so the newlyweds can keep it until they’re old and gray.

DIY Poké Ball Cake [Video]

poke ball cake

Are you ready to catch all of the desserts ever? Then you’ll need a Poké Ball cake. Fortunately, Cakes By ChoppA has shared a video tutorial on making one from vanilla cake. Even though I’m a novice when it comes to forming cakes into shapes, I have to say this looks like a pretty basic project that simply requires patience. If anything, the trickiest part looks like covering the Poké Ball in fondant.

Watch the instructional video after the break.

i am groot cake 1

The beauty of Groot’s “I am Groot” is that it can mean anything, including “Happy Birthday!” The baker behind Between the Pages made a baby Groot cake for that occasion and used modeling chocolate to build Groot around a wooden dowel base. The letters were cut from fondant, and the white flower pot is five eight inch round cakes that were sculpted.

The Guardians of the Galaxy-inspired design is creative and since it included crushed Oreo cookies (for the dirt), buttercream icing, and chocolate ganache, it was probably delicious too.

Library Cake

I never imagined I would want to live in a cake, but this library design by Kathy Knaus has changed my mind. There are a mind-blowing number of details on this cake. The front features the entrance to the library, complete with potted plants. The inside of the library is on the other side, and there are dozens of books on the shelves, a little globe, and a desk with gumdrop lamps covered in papers. I believe the entire thing is edible. If I can’t move in, maybe I could just curl up next to it with my book and eat it.

httyd 2 cake 1

The popularity of the How to Train Your Dragon franchise in recent years means some bakers have become exceptionally skilled at sculpting dragons. Art Cakes Bg has done a few cakes with characters from the movies and TV show, but this one has five (!) dragons. She included Toothless, of course, but also Barf and Belch, Hookfang, Meatlug, and Stormfly. She did such a great job with the shading and details on each of the adorable little creatures.

Hit the break to see more pics of the dragons.

LEGO cake 1

Eating a piece of soft LEGO cake is a much less painful experience than stepping on real LEGO bricks. Cakes by Carol made the entire thing from chocolate sponge and buttercream cake topped with chocolate ganache. Everything you see is edible. I can’t believe she had the patience to create all those little dots!

Check out a couple more pics of the cake after the break.

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.
