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.

It wasn’t until I watched the movies recently that I really understood why people were so obsessed with the Lord of the Rings movies/books.  While I still haven’t read the books, I was blown away by the movies (despite their length bordering on the annoying).  Having at least seen the movies, I now have an even better appreciation for the Lord of the Rings cakes that I come across.  In the past, I posted an amazing Dark Tower cake with the Eye of Sauron and just recently I posted a One Ring cake but I think this Gandolf on a Hobbit Hole cake blows them both away.

This beautiful and incredibly detailed cake featuring Gandalf standing on a Hobbit Hole was created by Silvia Nirolova for her son’s birthday.  To say that she is a talented cake maker would be a huge understatement because not only is the detail on Gandalf very impressive, but just the attention given to the leaves has my jaw on the floor.  She has a very lucky son!

Like many people, I have probably spent much more time than I would care to admit playing the Angry Birds games.  Whether it is the original, Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Seasons or even Angry Birds Star Wars, I have played them all and one could make the case that I might be slightly addicted to them.  However, in my defense, they are really fun games and I enjoy a good challenge which many levels are, especially if you want to get 3 stars.

Speaking of Angry Birds Star Wars, this spectacular Angry Birds Star Wars birthday cake was made by the clearly talented cake makers at In My Mother’s Kitchen.  I don’t know who Riley is, but I would suspect they had a pretty awesome birthday thanks to this cake!

I would say this is my second favorite all time Angry Birds Star Wars cake, right behind the Angry Birds Star Wars cake I posted with multiple tiers and right above the cake I posted with the giant Chewbacca bird.

Although I have the games installed on my PC, I have yet to get around to playing any of the Mass Effect games.  Judging by the glowing reviews that many of my gaming friends have given it, I am sure I will love it, I just haven’t got around to playing it yet as I have a ton of other games I want to play first.  However, even though I don’t know everything about the Mass Effect franchise, I still enjoy seeing cool stuff inspired by the game such as the custom Mass Effect shoes I posted a while back or the amazing fan made Mass Effect Monopoly game.  In this case, I have found a spectacular Mass Effect inspired wedding cake!

This stunning Mass Effect wedding cake features the NORMANDY SR-2, the HQ of the Lazarus Cell.  As for the yummy details of the cake, it is a red velvet cake covered with modeling chocolate while the wings are made of sugar paste.  Its not often I get to say this but yay for the lack of fondant!

This NORMANDY SR-2 cake was made by the obviously talented cake makers at Christopher Garren’s Let Them Eat Cake.
