Not being one for MMORPGs, I can’t say I know much about most of them.  In the case of Eve Online, the only two things I really know about the game is its name and that it takes place in space.  Otherwise, I know absolutely nothing about the game.  However, even though I don’t know anything about the game, I can still appreciate this spectacular Gallente Space Station cake inspire by the game!

This amazing Eve Online cake was created by Duff Goldman of Charm City Cakes.  If they sound familiar, that is because Charm City Cakes has made a bunch of cakes that I have posted in the past including a really cool World of Warcraft cake, a Skyrim dragon cake and several others.  They are definitely good at what they do!  I know I would hire them to make a cake if they were near me and I had the money.

With as popular as the popular pig killing game, Angry Birds has become, it is no surprise that everybody seems to be asking for an Angry Birds cake for their birthday these days.  In the past, I have posted a ton of Angry Birds cakes (just search for Angry Birds cakes on the right to see them all) such as the this cool Angry Birds cake and even a playable Angry Birds cake.  However, I don’t know that I have posted about one that is quite this cute before.

This adorable Angry Birds birthday cake was made by bake-a-boo cakes & cupcakes for some lucky birthday boy named Calvin.  I think the cake is incredibly well done although I have one problem with it.  If it is going to be an Angry Birds cake, shouldn’t the birds look a little…angrier?  Perhaps pissed off birds might ruin the cuteness of the cake but the game isn’t called Happy Birds is it?!  Heck no!

Happy or angry, this Angry Birds cake is still awesome!

Ever since I was a kid, I have always been a huge fan of the board game Monopoly.  Whether it was playing the traditional tabletop version with my grandfather or just playing it by myself on my GameBoy, I was a big Monopoly fan growing up.  I still play it now on my iPad but the unfortunate part about the digital versions is they don’t offer any of the cool novelty editions.

Speaking of cool novelty editions of Monopoly, one gamer created a Red Dead Redemption Monopoly for a school project!

Norwegian Reddit user inspirermeg is the creator of this awesome Red Dead Redemption Monopoly board game.  I’d say he did a heck of a job, especially considering is looks like half of reddit is offering to buy it.  I know I am interested in buying it too!

Check out the pictures below and you can find more via the source link at the bottom of the post.  If you think this is cool, you should check out the fan made Mass Effect Monopoly I posted over a year ago.

One of the reasons I have been looking for a new desk is because mine really doesn’t give me much room to do anything cool with like have a lamp.  Unfortunately, it seems to be impossible to find a desk that does what I want it to so I am coming to the conclusion that I may have to design and build my own.  If that is the path I take, I definitely want a desk where I can have a Boba Fett lamp like this one sitting on it!

This awesome Boba Fett helmet lamp was created by Instructables user Major League Mods.  For those that want to make your own, you can check out the DIY guide here.  It seems like a pretty easy build since all you need is an old lamp, a Boba Fett Helmet, a LED light bulb (I assume because heat would be a real issue if you tried to use something else although you can probably get away with a CFL) and a drill with a 3/8″ bit to make one for yourself.

If you decide to make one for yourself, let us know in the comments below and make sure to share some pictures with us!

For as long as I can remember, I have always been a huge Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan.  I loved the cartoon as a kid, the video games and especially the live action movies.  Even today, I am still a big TMNT fan and absolutely loving the new cartoon (although I am dreading Michael Bay’s alien ninja turtle movie garbage).  Well, it seems I’m not the only one who is still loving the turtles these days judging by this awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cake!

This incredibly well done Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cake was created by Tea Party Cakes.  I think the detail on the turtles is quite good and I even love the inclusion of the moon in the background.  Whoever Cooper is, they obviously had an awesome birthday!

However, I would think the Turtles would have better taste in pizza than Domino’s.  If you are living in a city like New York, you have a ton of better options than a pizza place whose food tastes like cardboard.  Oh well, to each their own I suppose.

Cowabunga!

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.
