Death Star Latte Art

Jeremy Bray —  March 27, 2015 — Leave a comment

It has been a while since I have posted some nerdy latte art (search for latte art on the right to see all of the amazing latte art I have posted about in the past), so when I saw this Death Star latte art on the front page of the Star Wars subreddit, I thought I should post it on here.

This awesome Star Wars latte art features a great looking Death Star and Tie Bomber.  Sadly, I’m not sure who the barista is who made this to give them credit (let us know in the comments below if you know who they are), but they did a fantastic job!  The froth is strong with this one!

On a side note, I have always wondered if baristas charge extra to do stuff like this or are you just expected to tip more?  I’m not a coffee person so I’m unfamiliar with the situation.  Feel free to enlighten me in the comments below because I am truly curious!

If you have been reading Global Geek News for a while, you know that one of my favorite things to post is nerdy wedding cakes.  They always look amazing so I just can’t help but fall in love with them.  Well, I have come across yet another incredible gaming wedding cake that I knew I had to share.

This amazing gaming wedding cake features tiers of Super Mario Bros (I’m not sure which one), Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, and Pac-Man / Ms. Pac-Man with some Legend of Zelda hearts on top.  The level of detail is quite impressive!

Sadly, I don’t know who made the cake to give them credit or who the happy couple is to congratulate them so if anybody knows, please post in the comments below so they can get the credit they deserve!

One of my favorite arcade games to play in various restaurants around town when I was a kid was Pac-Man.  Sadly, all but one or two restaurants have taken the old Pac-Man games out but at least I can play it on my phone when I get the urge.  However, Pac-Man food isn’t as easy to come by.

Back in January, I posted some really cool Pac-Man cupcakes that I found at my State Fair last year but I have to admit, I would much rather eat these Pac-Man cookies!

I’m not sure who made these delicious looking cookies but they were posted on Reddit by user mcmullet.  Whoever made them (possibly mcmullet), they did an amazing job with a couple of exceptions.  First, Where the heck is Inky?!  And second, why is Pac-Man headed right toward Blinky?  Does he have a death wish?  I want answers!

Tired of using the same old silverware/plasticware to eat your dinner?  Well, now you can kick dinner time into another dimension thanks to these fantastic timey wimey eating utensils!

The nerdy people over at ThinkGeek are selling this Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver cutlery set for just $23.99 right now!  That is 20% off the normal $29.99 price!  I’m not sure how long the sale price will last, so I would jump on this deal before it goes away!  That said, even at $30, I think this set is still worth it if you are a Doctor Who fan like I am!  FYI, these are made of plastic and stainless steel and they are dishwasher safe!

Sonic Screwdriver eating utensils might be overkill for a nice dinner of fish fingers and custard but you can’t live on those so I’m sure you will find other dishes to use these with.

One passion of mine that I never talk about on here is my love for professional wrestling.  I have been a huge fan ever since I was a kid and I often structure my evenings around whatever wrestling show happens to be on at the time (and no, I don’t pay for the WWE Network because it lacks the content I want most).  Well, when I saw this video combining my love for professional wrestling with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I knew I had to share it on here.

The video below shows the tag teams known as Tortuguillos Karatekas and Tortugas Ninjas wrestling each other dressed as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at Arena López Mateos in Tlalnepantla, Mexico.  I wish I could see the whole match but even this clip is still pretty cool!  Cowabunga dudes!

Not being a very crafty person, I could never dream of making something like the spectacular Halo Master Chief cross-stitch seen below.  I guess I just didn’t get the crafty genes from my mother because she can do stuff like cross-stitch and I could never do something like that.  However, I don’t have to be able to do it to appreciate it and that is a good thing because this Master Chief cross-stitch is quite impressive!

The wife of Reddit user OkieCoder created this Halo Master Chief cross-stitch masterpiece over a period of five months.  The end product was made of a mind blowing 51,900 stitches!  Talk about dedication!
