Delicious technology

The blogger at Design*Sponge loves “a good dessert, and love it even more when the dessert is in some way clever or unexpected. so when i heard from brandy and rebecca from The Regional Assembly of Text about this typewriter cake they had at their 4 year anniversary party i couldn’t resist.”

the company’s friend Allison Chambers made the cake by hand.

Cake Wars

Cue the music! Cue the splattered frosting! It’s CAKE WARS!

From GeekDad:

Cake Wrecks highlighted some great Star Wars themed cakes recently as a celebration of Star Wars Weekend at Disney.

One of the featured cakes is this amazing replica of the Millennium Falcon from Cakes by Jyl.  She claims that everything is edible.  I am not sure if I want to eat it, or pick it up and fly it around the house.  (Maybe both!)  Cake Wrecks features some other great cakes, including a Star Destroyer, R2-D2 and an AT-AT in its Sunday Sweets collection of Star Wars cakes.

In comparison to the Star Wars cakes of the non-wreck variety, you can check out some of wreck variety in the Star Wars Weekend collection.  Be forewarned:  there is a cake that indiscriminately combines features of both Star Trek and Star Wars.

Read the other cake-related posts and see more Star Wars cake pics.

 This is someone’s wedding cake. Awesome!

Happy Birthday all you Star Wars fans

Once again brought to us from GeekDad, or rather a friend of GeekDad: a cake in the shape of a Star Wars robot. I am a big enough Star Wars geek to know this is not R2-D2, but not a big enough geek to know what the name of this robot actually is. It was created for a three-year-old’s birthday, which frankly I think is a waste since no three-year-old can appreciate just how awesome that cake is. BUT, nonetheless, this is a beautiful example of tasty art inspired by geekiness and science (fiction).

To paraphrase Homer Simpson, “Hmmm, delicious robot, aughghgh *drool*.”
