Nerd Cakes

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.

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.

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.
