When my birthday rolls around, my mom always makes me a jello cake which is my favorite kind of cake (besides cheesecake).  However, with a cake like that, you can’t really do much of anything fancy with it which is why I tend to be a bit jealous of the cakes that many kids get for their birthdays.  In this particular case, one mom made an incredible Legend of Zelda Hylian Shield cake for her son’s 18th birthday.

Reddit user Riorus’ mom is the person that made this Legend of Zelda Hylian Shield cake that I would say looks way too cool to eat!

If somebody was to offer me a cake like this, I would be very torn.  On one hand, I would give anything to have a cool Legend of Zelda cake like this, but on the other hand, I would hate to eat something that looks this amazing.  Would you eat something that looks this good?  Let us know in the comments below!

There are a ton of people that seem to be huge fans of Minecraft but I can’t say I am one of them.  I have seen a lot of people make some really cool stuff in Minecraft such as Microsoft Office’s Clippy from years ago but beyond recreating stuff in the game, I just don’t really see the appeal of it.  Perhaps its a game that just isn’t targeted to somebody like me.  However, even though I don’t play it, I still like seeing really cool Minecraft stuff like this awesome Minecraft birthday cake and cupcakes!

This neat Minecraft cake and cupcakes were baked by Helen from Love is Cake.  Apparently a young Minecraft fan recently turned 9 and celebrated the occasion with this Minecraft birthday cake and cupcakes.  I’d say they turned out looking great!

Not being a fan of pop or soda or whatever you want to call it, I can’t say I have ever had much use for pop machines.  Once in a while I will get a bottled water from them if they have it and it is not Aquafina (that stuff is nasty), but otherwise I have never had much use for pop machines.  However, I’d say this TARDIS pop machine is the coolest pop machine ever!

This Doctor Who themed TARDIS pop machine was spotted at Epic Comics in Orlando, Florida.  I love how they use pictures of the Doctor with the pictures next to the buttons for selecting the drink you want.  The only thing that needs a bit of improving on this TARDIS soda machine is the missing poster on the left.  Otherwise, I declare this pop machine cool!

Anybody who has been reading Global Geek News for a while knows I am a HUGE Star Trek: Deep Space Nine fan.  It is easily my all time favorite show and rarely does a night go by that I don’t watch at least one episode before falling asleep.  However, until today, I have never seen any kind of DS9 themed cake.  For all of the other Star Trek cakes I post such as the mind blowing Borg wedding cake or the Star Trek Voyager cake, I have never had the opportunity to post a Deep Space Nine inspired cake until now.

This awesome Star Trek: Deep Space Nine inspired U.S.S. Defiant cake was made by the obviously cook cake makers at Stuffed Cakes.  The Defiant is my favorite Starfleet ship and I think they did a pretty good job at capturing the essence of the vessel.  However, I find it very unfortunate that the cake wasn’t made for me because I have yet to meet a bigger DS9 fan than me.

It is pretty common for people to do something geeky to their computers, game consoles or other gadgets, but it is not every day you see somebody turn a kitchen appliance into geek art.  In fact, the only other instance I can think of that I have seen is the TARDIS refrigerator.  Well, one Star Wars fan decided to take a Kitchenaid mixer and give it a Boba Fett look.

DeviantART user Tommyfilth is awesome Star Wars fan that turned a Kitchenaid mixer into this neat Boba Fett mixer.  Apparently he was wanting a Kitchenaid mixer for Christmas and pointed his wife to a broken one on Ebay that he could refurbish.  Well, apparently he ended up getting it for Christmas and after fixing whatever was wrong, decided to paint it to look like Boba Fett.  I’d say he did an excellent job!

I would love to bake with Boba!

Recently, I have been starting to wonder whether I come across more Star Wars cakes or Doctor Who cakes.  I have a feeling I probably see a few more Star Wars cakes than Doctor Who ones although I think the numbers are pretty close or at least it seems like a post about a fairly equal number of both.  Just in the past month or so, I have posted about a really cool Doctor Who wedding cake and an epic Doctor Who proposal cake (I’m still not sure a proposal cake is a real thing but any excuse for cake is fine with me).  Well, now I have found perhaps the cutest Doctor Who cake ever to add to the bunch!

This slightly cartoony looking Doctor Who cake was created by Becky from Becky and The Beanstalk.  I’d say she did a great job!  This is the first Doctor Who cake I have seen that has an adipose on it, much less a Cyberman, Weeping Angel and a Silence too!  And of course no Doctor Who cake would be complete without a TARDIS which this has one of the nicer ones I have seen.
