If I ever get my basement straightened out, I have long dreamed of doing something cool with it like turning it into a mini arcade or perhaps having a nice home theater setup but I’ve never thought of giving it an NES theme until now.  After seeing the NES themed room below, my thoughts about my basements future have completely changed because I want this for myself!

Unfortunately, I don’t know who owns this amazing Nintendo NES themed living room (if you know, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit), but they did an incredible job building it.  I’m not sure what I love most, the NES coffee table, the NES cartridge end tables or all of the cool Super Mario Bros woodwork that decorates the walls.

However, there is one real problem with this picture.  The Xbox 360 controller on the couch ruins the whole NES theme.  It should be a NES controller to properly keep with the theme but maybe I’m just being picky.

Does anybody know how much it would cost to build all of this?  I’m seriously interested in at least having the NES coffee table and cartridge tables.  That would give me the ultimate basement!

Even though I have been a huge Legend of Zelda fan since I was a kid, I have never played Wind Waker.  For many years, I have been put off by the graphical style it has which was such a huge change from Ocarina of Time (perhaps the best game of all time).  However, I have finally changed my thought process and now I am really looking forward to checking out the game when the HD version comes out for the Wii U later this year.  Until then, I can just stare at pictures of this incredible Legend of Zelda Wind Waker cake!

I posted a really cool Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker cake in the past but I don’t think it is even in the same league as the one below!

The incredible cake makers over at Nerdache Cakes (we have featured many of their creations in the past if you want to search for them in the box on the right) made this incredible Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker cake for a birthday party last week.  The amount of time and detail that went into this cake is amazing!

As for the yummy details, the cake was a vanilla/white chocolate chip cake with vanilla and almond buttercream, a layer of crushed sugar cookies and lots of white chocolate ganache. The front of the ship (The King of Red Lions) is carved foam and chocolate. Link and Zelda are 8″ inch fondant figures and all of the waves around the boat are fondant (yuck!) too.  As for the sail, it is papercraft.

Unfortunately, there is one thing that is very wrong with this cake.  It was made for a 1 year old’s birthday.  Why would you have something this amazing made for a kid that will never remember it, most likely has no clue who Link and Zelda are and I doubt has ever played the game?  It just makes no sense to me!  That would be like making the cake for me when I have never even played the game.  However, in my case, I can at least appreciate how amazing the cake is.  Anyway, here are some of the amazing pictures.

Anybody who has been a reader of Global Geek News for any length of time knows I have a slight obsession with artwork by Megan Lara.  I tend to become especially crazed when the design is focused on Doctor Who.  I have t-shirts of all of her Doctor Who designs and a few others ranging from the Legend of Zelda (coincidentally, that is the one I am wearing now) to Battlestar Galactica.  She really is an incredible artist!

Well, speaking of her incredible work, another one of her amazing Doctor Who inspired shirts is on sale for just today!

The incredible folks over at TeeFury are selling this ‘I Am the Bad Wolf’ t-shirt for just $11 today only!  This design is the last in the collaborative series of Doctor Who shirts by Megan Lara and Omega Man 5000 and it might be my favorite!

There is a lot in this shirt that any Whovian is sure to love from Rose Tyler to the Doctor’s 3D glasses, any Doctor Who fan will fall in love with this shirt.  This shirt also makes it appropriate to ask people if they are your mummy and when they respond, yell EXTERMINATE!

I will be buying this shirt as soon as I finish this post since I have to have the last in the series considering I have all of the others.  If you get the shirt too, let us know in the comments below!  Also, using the links here (above or the source link below) supports Global Geek News because they are affiliate links and we get a tiny percentage of the sale.

There aren’t too many shows these days that people of all generations enjoy but Doctor Who is one of those few shows.  I have met people that have been watching it for the 50 years that it has been on as well as little kids that are huge fans of the show.  Just a couple of weeks ago, I was picking up some fast food when a girl that I am guessing was around 6 or 7 years old started to freak out about how awesome one of my Megan Lara designed Doctor Who shirts was and got her dad to notice who was also a Whovian.  Well, speaking of little kids that like Doctor Who, it seems one Whovian just turned 6 and got some amazing Doctor Who cupcakes and a cake for their birthday.

The Clever Little Cupcake Company made these awesome Doctor Who cupcakes and TARDIS birthday cake for Lewis who apparently turned 6.  I can’t decide which cupcake I like the most, the Cyberman cupcakes, Dalek Cupcakes, sonic screwdriver cupcake or the TARDIS cupcake.  They all look so good!  I am very impressed with what this cupcake company has done!

With all of the excitement around Doctor Who lately, especially with the announcement of the 12th Doctor and the 50th anniversary special just a couple of months away, I couldn’t help but post this absolutely beautiful Weeping Angel cake.  I’ve posted a cool Doctor Who cake in the past that featured a Weeping Angel statue but it can’t hold a candle to the cake below.

I’ve seen some rather incredibly detailed cakes before but very few have reached the level of detail and beauty that this Weeping Angel cake has achieved.

This Weeping Angel cake was created by Mike’s Amazing Cakes.  I’m not sure I understand the whole bunny version of the 11th Doctor thing but even its sonic screwdriver is cool!

If I ever have a Weeping Angel cake made for me, these guys are the one to do it because I just can’t believe how incredibly detailed they made this cake!  My only concern is not being able to blink until it is entirely eaten.  I am a fast eater but not blinking for that long would be uncomfortable to say the least.
