Like every other living human, I am a huge fan of sugar cookies.  Thanks to the large amount of them that happened to be around the house this past Christmas, I am still trying to lose all of the holiday weight I gained because of them.  However, it is probably a good thing there weren’t any Star Wars sugar cookies like this around the house because I would have gained a lot more weight than I did.

These fantastic looking Star Wars cookies were created by The Hungry Hippopotamus who gave them a wonderful cartoon look.  I am quite impressed with the level of detail they were able to achieve with the frosting on these cookies.

Even though I think they all look great, I can’t decide if I like Han Solo or Darth Vader the best.  I guess that all depends on if Darth Vader’s lightsaber is made out of glitter or some sort of shiny yet edible frosting.  The thought of eating glitter just doesn’t sound good.

Easter is just around the corner and for many people that means one thing.  Peeps!  While I have never actually had a peep myself (feel free to tell me what I am missing in the comments), they seem to be the most popular treat for the holiday.  That and those Cadbury Creme Eggs but since I haven’t seen anybody do anything cool with those, I am not going to talk about them.

Reddit user MrSteveB went to a party at a friends place recently and found this bunch of peeps made to look like Super Mario jumping over a Piranha Plant.  I don’t know who the friends are, but they are definitely awesome people.

This is the way Easter was meant to be celebrated although you can’t forget to have some Nintendo Easter eggs too!

For some reason, there doesn’t seem to be too many people that makes stuff with beads anymore.  I remember when I was a kid, it was quite easy to go into pretty much any mom and pop shop and find something made out of beads whether it was a necklace or a holder for your tv remotes.  Well, even though it seems to have largely become a lost art, occasion I still find some cool bead art.  In the past I found some spectacular Sonic the Hedgehog bead art but now I have found some amazing Star Trek bead art!

Reddit user djkimothy made this awesome piece of Star Trek Captain Picard bead art for a friends birthday.

I’m not sure how many beads were used or how long it took to make but judging by the quality and level of detail, I would say a lot of time and effort went into this.  It was definitely worth it too because it turned out looking great!

Not being a coffee drinker, I really don’t have much use for mugs.  I think there are a lot of cool ones out there and I even have a few but drinking water out of a coffee mug just feels awkward.  However, for those Doctor Who fans out there that love a cup of joe, I have a feeling you are going to want to drink all of your future cups of coffee out of a Dalek after you see this mug.

The awesome folks over at Urban Collector are selling this geektastic Dalek mug for just $22.99.  If you are a Whovian who loves the idea of drinking coffee straight from a Dalek, I’m pretty sure this is what you have been dreaming about.  However, you are going to be dreaming a bit longer though as this is currently only available for pre-order and it wont ship until sometime in July.

EXTERMINATE!

One of the reasons I am not a huge fan of coffee and other hot drinks is because I don’t like to risk getting burned while holding the cup.  Of course I know many places offer the little cardboard sleeves to go around the cups so that doesn’t happen but I think those things just make an otherwise decent looking cup rather ugly.  However, that wouldn’t be a problem if you carry a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coffee cozy with you!

Ravelry user Strawberry Knits is the person behind the creation of this awesome TMNT coffee cozy.  For those with the knitting skills to make your own or perhaps have a grandmother that can make you one, you can find the pattern here.  One thing to note is that this is meant to fit a Starbucks grande size cup so keep that in mind when buying coffee to put this on.

If there is somebody that doesn’t love cupcakes, I have never met them.  In fact, without evidence that such a person exists, I would highly doubt any claims that there are people who don’t like cupcakes.  It is certainly possible that there are people who don’t like cupcakes but I am highly skeptical.  Anyway, speaking of cupcakes, I have come across some fantastic looking Captain America cupcakes I thought I would share!

These spectacular Captain America cupcakes were made by Hundred and Thousands Cupcakes.  I would say they did an amazing job as they look pretty much perfect!  I especially love the helmet ones with the wings, eyes and nose.  I can’t say I am a Captain America fan but I am definitely a fan of these cupcakes!
