It has been a long time since I have posted a geeky cake (two months to be exact) so I thought today would be the perfect day to post one since I came across this cool Mario cake in my normal visits to my favorite nerd sites.  I’ve posted a ton of Super Mario themed cakes and even cupcakes in the past such as this mind blowing Super Mario Bros wedding cake and this sweet Mario warp pipe cake but I’m pretty sure this is the first one that has featured a giant mushroom as a house.

This cute Super Mario inspired cake was created by Cake Central Member KOs Cakes.  It features all kinds of Mario staples like Mario (obviously), a goomba, piranha plants, fire flower power ups, stars, mushrooms and more!  As for the tasty details of this cake, Mario, the chimney, clouds and plants were made out of modeling chocolate and the mushroom house is made with fondant (not so tasty).

Even though I may have a major dislike of fondant, you can’t argue with how good of looking cakes you make out the stuff.

It never ceases to amaze me how people will put such tremendous amounts of time into a project just to make something cool.  Whether it is some giant piece of bead art or a massive LEGO build, I am always blown away by the things that people spend months making just to make something amazing.  Well, speaking of amazing things that took a long time to make, I woke up this morning to find this incredible Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past map cross-stitch that took 9 months to make!

Like most mornings, when I woke up, one of the first websites I checked was reddit and unlike some mornings, it really paid off because on the front page was this incredible Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past map cross-stitch created by user tibtibs.  It took her 400-500 hours over 9 months to make this incredible cross-stitch for her boyfriend who is obviously a big Zelda fan and an extremely lucky man!

She didn’t have a link (pun intended) but she says she found the pattern on Etsy so if you have some cross-stitching skills and want to make your own, you can probably find the pattern on there somewhere.

If you are like me, you are already at the point where you have more Doctor Who shirts than you can ever wear regularly but you just can’t stop yourself from buying more.  I didn’t count them but last night I ball-parked the number of shirts I have at somewhere around 100 and I see no signs of me slowing down in my shirt purchases.  It is thanks to dirt cheap yet awesome shirts like the ones below that I have outgrown my closet and have a stack of t-shirts as tall as my ceiling (I’m not even joking).  Well, with the shirts below, it looks like I will have 2 more to add to the pile.

The super geeks over at TeeFury are selling these two fantastic Doctor Who shirts for just $11 each today only!  The one with the 11th Doctor painting the 9th Doctor while looking at his reflection which is the 10th Doctor is called Doctor Rockwell by Creative Outpouring and the other shirt featuring the 10th Doctor is called The Oncoming Storm by Jhimmelman.  Also, you get some sort of Gali

Whether you are a Doctor Who fan or know one who would like one of these shirts, I suggest ordering them now before they go away!

Epic Steampunk Game Boy

Ever since I was a kid, I have had a slight Game Boy obsession.  I always used to carry one with me no matter where I went (Now I carry my Nintendo 3DS with me) as well as a pack of batteries because any Game Boy fan knows it will always die on you at the worst possible time.  I have amassed a nice little collection of them over the years ranging from the original Game Boy to the Game Boy Advance (I really need to find another one of those because the screen on mine has got so dark it is almost impossible to see).  Well, if there is one Game Boy I would love to add to my collection, it would be this incredible Steampunk Game Boy!

This amazing Steampunk Game Boy was created by Wendy Dearum.  Sadly, I have no other details as I just saw this being shared around on Facebook.  However, if history has taught me anything, it is that the creator of the stuff I post will eventually find the post and respond to questions so if Wendy ever sees this post, these are the questions I have.  First, how long did it take to make this? Second, does the Game Boy still work?  And last, is it for sale and if so, how much?  I seriously want this for my Game Boy collection!

I’m pretty sure I have mentioned it before but for those that might be new, my favorite franchise of games is the God of War franchise.  The other franchises I post about like Super Mario Bros, Legend of Zelda, Sonic the Hedgehog and many others hold a special place in my heart but God of War is by far my favorite.  Between the incredible graphics, storytelling (not counting Ascension which I didn’t think was near as good), brutal action, puzzles and Greek mythology, I think it is incredible.  I should also note that as I am typing this, I am wearing my God of War hat (I told you I was a fan!)  Well, if you are a huge Kratos fan like I am, then you are going to want to decorate your gaming room with this amazing Kratos bust!

The folks at Gaming Heads are selling this stunning life-size Kratos bust for $599.99.  I will admit that is pretty steep but only 500 are being made and the paint and finer detail is all done by hand.  Currently, these are available for pre-order and won’t be shipping until sometime in Q3 2014.

I’m really trying to justify spending that kind of money on this because I would love to have one of these in my bedroom, even if there is a chance it will give me nightmares.  I just don’t see that I have that kind of money right now to spend on something like this even if it is the coolest thing ever!

If you decide to order one, let me know in the comments below!  I would love to hear if it looks as good in person as it does in the pictures.

The past few days, I have been playing a lot of the new Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds on the 3DS and I am loving every minute of it!  If you have a 3DS and haven’t bought it yet, I highly recommend it!  And if you don’t have a 3DS, this is the perfect excuse to get one.

Well, speaking of Zelda and the 3DS, the reason I am doing this very rare Thursday post is because Nintendo is giving away the Legend of Zelda: Four Swords anniversary edition for FREE on the 3DS’ eShop for the next 4 days.  I thought you guys might be interested in knowing that so you can get your Zelda on this weekend.

This anniversary edition differs from the original in that it has new levels you can unlock based on past Zelda games and it has a new single player mode.

The deal lasts through the end of 2/2/14 (Sunday) so if you don’t have your 3DS sitting next to you right now, you still have a little time to jump on this deal.

I got my copy of this game a long time ago for being one of the first adopters of the 3DS when Nintendo gave away a bunch of free classic games on it to appease existing owners after the dropped the price on it right away.  I can’t say I have spent more than a couple of hours with it but it seemed like a good game.  I plan on going back and playing it through after I finish A Link Between Worlds.
