Trolling around the internet, like you do, I have come across some pretty darn fantastic-looking cakes. I have no idea what tastes good, as I didn’t get to taste any of these cakes. Plus, I’m not much of a cake eater. But here are the cakes that particularly struck my fancy. We’ve got geek cred out the wazoo, here, Folks. I’ll split them up into sections for you:
The Star Wars Cakes
Like we could have a post on fancy cakes without showing the Star Wars cakes? Sheesh. What kind of website do you think this is?
The detail on this cake is fantastic. In case you’ve been living under a rock that’s under a sheet of moss which is under a big lake somewhere and you HAVEN’T seen the Star Wars movies, this is at AT-AT – an All Terrain Armored Transport “walker.” They can carry up forty storm troopers. Not the cake, though. I’m sure it just carries deliciousness.
Darth Vader Cake
Just in case you ever wanted to eat Darth Vader’s face off. Hey, I don’t judge you.
Jabba & Slave Leia Cake
I’m sure that it’s not disconcerting at all for a four-year-old to eat a cake depiction of a slave Leia in a cake metal bikini. At least we can be pretty sure that the Jabba part of the cake is not actually Jabba-flavored, which I imagine tastes a lot like earwax. Or frog. He eats a lot of frogs.
Millennium Falcon Cake
I’m sure that cake version of the Millennium Falcon smells a lot better than the ACTUAL Millennium Falcon, which I image smells like damp Wookie and a burned-out Hyper Drive. It doesn’t, however, come with a young Harrison Ford, so I’ll pass.
This is way too cute to eat.
This was originally going to be the whole post, but then I found the Star Wars cakes, and a bunch of other cakes, and…there you go.
Speed Racer Cake
Go Speed Caker!
Captain America Cake
What do you say about Captain America?
To the Bat Cake!
It’s very possible that Carvel made this cake. Who am I to judge? If it’s an ice cream cake, I will make an exception and eat it.
Alien Symbiote Spider-Man Cake
Venom. How cool is that? Too cool to eat, that’s for sure. Also, cool enough to make it into the Superhero Cake Section even though he’s a villain. That, and there weren’t a whole lot of other villain cakes I tried to find.
Wolverine Claws Cake
Wolverine’s hand bursting through a cake….
Wolverine Cage Match Cake
Is more effective than a caked-up version of Wolverine. Creepy.
TV, Book, and Movie Cakes
Here are a few cool ones from our favorite movies, TV shows, and books.
Aliens Chestburster Cake
However cool this may be, you could not pay me to eat any of it. Who wants themselves depicted as wormy alien creatures? Not this guy. The cake, however? It’s full of a great amount of badassery.
Discworld. Look it up.
Dr. Who Tardis Cake
Harry Potter Cake
Too pretty to eat. Hogwarts from one of those cake shows on TV.
Optimus Prime by one of those awesome cake dudes. Would be a shame to eat it, I think.
Video Game Cakes
Now is the time where we show how geeky we really are.
Atari 2600 Cake
And the kids ask, “What’s that?”
Guitar Hero Cake
Pac Man Cake
Cute idea. These are cupcakes. But again, the kids say, “what’s that?”
The Princess & Mario Wedding Cake
These don’t fit into one of the above categories, but they are awesome nonetheless.
Crab Cake (snicker)
Why make a cake that looks like a crab? Who cares when it turns out this great?
Red Dragon Cake
A variation on the theme. But ever so much cooler.
Hope it’s not beer-flavored!
Rubick’s Cube Cake
It just makes me wonder what type of event this was for. I hope it was for a wedding.
I love that I’m Irish. This is beautiful.
And last, but not nearly least:
It’s got bits of real squid in it, so you know it’s good. Just kidding. But whoa, right?
Have more cakes? Send them my way!
