I got married last September and in the midst of my crazed wedding-planning, I had to search for sweet treats for my guests. I am not a cake person; never have been. I’m more of a cupcake person. But that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy looking at beautiful, gravity-defying, and/or nerdy cakes that define awesomeness. So when I find cakes that look like these? I almost wanted a cake just to show off my own geekery. I mean, if someone can make a Star Wars cake this amazing, they should definitely get accolades. They’ve even got Han Solo up at the tip top (!!) and I’m pretty sure I’ve made myself clear on my ridiculous love for Harrison Ford:
This is great for the retro video gamers who never cheated on Mr. & Mrs. Pac-Man:
More awesome Pac Man cupcakes:
And then there’s the classic cupcakes my brother would love, being Space Invaders and all:
And then there’s this amazing cake. As two people who grew up on Mario Bros. (from Nintendo systems to today’s) I would have a hard time cutting into this one, both for fear of gravity as well as my own awe:
And finally, the piece de resistance. This cake? I would totally kill for this one. Not only is it a nerdy cake, but it’s a nerdy HARRY POTTER CAKE. It’s like my geek dreams come true! I’d absolutely trade cupcakes in for this unbelievable cake:
I adore nerdy cakes. It’s like food porn for my eyes and stomach. Yum!
