Divine Nerd Wedding Cake

In just under two weeks, Olga Philips of Divine Cakes made us all extremely jealous of her creativity and talent by creating a 6′ tall wedding cake that reveals itself to be “nerdy on the inside.” The happy couple came to Philips with a short deadline and very specific requests concerning what fun things would be referenced in their cake.

To her credit, she was able to pull off the assignment (and then some), delivering a cake that includes the starship Enterprise, the One Ring to rule them all, the smuggling ship known as Serenity, the Doctor’s TARDIS, a certain astromech droid, a Hippogriff from Harry Potter, a unicorn from a certain Harrison Ford film, a nod to Game of Thrones, and, of course, the iconic symbol of Batman.

Check out Olga Philips’ design sketch after the break!

borg cube fridge 1

ThinkGeek has taken the Borg Cube where it’s never gone before: into the realm of kitchen appliances! The cube shaped ship makes a perfect mini refrigerator. It’s lit with green on the inside and looks sufficiently ominous. It will hold nine cans of soda and has a 12V DC power cord in case you’d like to plug it into your car. The portable fridge would be perfect for a roadtrip!

Borg whiskey chillers

The Borg were never trying to destory the crew of the starship Enterprise, they were trying to show them a better way to chill their whiskey. The cube shape of their metallic ships is suited for the task. Luckily, ThinkGeek’s figured it out. They’ve put together a package of six steel cubes etched with the Borg insignia that you can use to keep your adult beverages icy cold without watering them down. Come on, you know you want to be assimilated.

The United Federation of Planets and the Romulan Star Empire generally don’t get along. But if they ever decided to bury the proverbial type 3 disruptor, then I imagine both sides would celebrate long and hard with more than a few boozy shots. So, make a toast to peace in space with these Star Trek Ceramic Shot Glasses. Two feature the U.S.S. Enterprise (with the Command delta shield on the reverse side) and the other two feature a Romulan Bird-of-Prey (with the Star Trek logo on the reverse). Make it so, and pour me some whiskey!

klingonbeer

A new Star Trek-themed dunkelweizen (or dark wheat) beer called Klingon Warnog is set to beam down to stores near you. It will be the first Star Trek beer to be available commercially here in the States.

It’s brewed by Indiana-based Tin Man Brewery for the Federation of Beer–the Federation was also behind the Vulcan Ale, which came out last year.

klingon blood orange

One thing you’ve got to love about science fiction, it’s full of symbols. Star Trek has its share of them, and the Klingon design translates well to carbs. The talented folks over at Kitchen Overlord have taken inspiration from it and created Klingon Blood Orange Pull Apart Rolls. Tasty and doesn’t include real blood – it’s pretty much the best combination ever. The recipe definitely takes some elbow grease and time, but come on, Worf could do it, and so can you!

Get the full recipe at Kitchen Overlord.

Patrick-Stewart-pizza

Sir Patrick Stewart tried his first pizza “slice” seven months ago, and he must have liked it. He recently posted an Instagram video of what looks like freshly baked, homemade pizza being cut by ThinkGeek’s Star Trek Enterprise pizza cutter. It doesn’t look like he’s the one wielding it or the person singing the Star Trek theme in the video, but here’s hoping the cutter belongs to him – because it’s just too perfect.

Watch the beautiful moment in the video after the break.
