It amazes me that in around 2,800 posts I have written on Global Geek News over the past half dozen years or so, only once have I featured a Stargate cake.  I’ve posted hundreds of other cakes ranging from Star Trek and Star Wars to Super Mario Bros and Legend of Zelda but I’ve only posted one really cool Stargate cake in the past.  Well, it is time that changes and I share another incredible Stargate cake I have stumbled across.

This incredible Stargate birthday cake features a very realistic looking Stargate that even has all of the symbols on it.  It appears to have been created by a Lina DeMorais and I’d say she did one heck of a job!  Something tells me that Samantha’s birthday was quite epic.

I am curious to know how long it took to get that level of detail on the Stargate and most importantly, I wonder if the cake tasted as good as it looks?  I wish somebody would make cakes like these for my friends because I would love to have a piece of Stargate.

Boba Fett Pizza

Being the huge pizza addict that I am, I love posting about geeky pizzas that people make.  In the past, I have posted about some really cool pizzas like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle logo pizza, a Dalek pizza, a Joker pizza and a ton of other delicious looking geeky pizzas.  To see them all, I’d suggest just searching for pizza in the search box on the right and I am positive you won’t be disappointed although you might end up really hungry for pizza.

Speaking of geeky pizzas, I think this is the first time I have ever featured a Boba Fett pizza.

I stumbled across this delicious looking Star Wars inspired Boba Fett pizza on reddit.  It was posted by reddit user HazardActual although I don’t know if he was the creator or not.  Reddit seems to have a problem with people reposting stuff so it is hard to tell if they are ever the original creator of something or not but I am going to guess this guy made it.

Now I am kind of glad I am going to have pizza for dinner even though I had it for dinner last night because I am hungry for pizza again.  I did say I was a pizza addict right?

In the past, I have posted a number of really cool Batman cakes ranging from a birthday cake inspired by the Batman cartoon to a Tumbler and bipod cake from the Dark Knight movies.  However, as awesome as those cakes are, I think when it comes to Batman cakes, the one below is my new favorite.  The detail on Batman alone is quite spectacular!

This amazing Batman cake was created by Di’s Delights.  Apparently Batman was hand carved while the Gotham part of the cake was created with airbrushed Madeira sponge cake.  Sounds yummy!

The only thing I find a bit odd about this cake is that Batman’s head looks a bit…extra terrestrial.  Something about the shape of his head and eyes just screams space alien to me.  The rest of him seems fine, it is just the head that I find a little creepy.

Human Batman or space alien Batman, I don’t think it matters much because this is still a cool cake and I suspect this Liam had one great birthday!

It has been a while since I have posted a cool cake so when I saw this one, I knew I had to post it.  I have posted some pretty amazing Lord of the Rings cakes in the past including a cute Gandalf on a hobbit hole birthday cake and an amazing Dark Tower cake but I think this Gollum cake might just be my favorite.

The creator of this incredible Gollum cake is taartvanbianca.  They are obviously an extremely skilled cake decorator because the detail and coloring on Gollum as well as the rest of the cake is absolutely stunning.  The small things make this cake even more special like the Elvish writing around the edge and the dead fish that Gollum has been eating.

The Gollum in this cake looks just as creepy as the character in the movie and I don’t think that was easy to accomplish so hats off to taartvanbianca.

In the past, I have posted a ton of Super Mario Bros themed wedding cakes and they are all amazing.  However, I think this incredible Super Mario Bros wedding cake is officially my favorite and should the day come that I get married, I want one just like it!  I am blown away by the level of detail on this cake.

While I am not positive who made this incredible cake, I would guess it was created by Cakecrumbs judging by the watermark on the photo.  If not and you know who created this great cake, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them the credit they absolutely deserve!  I can’t even imagine the time involved in getting a cake to look this detailed and good but I would say it was well worth it!

Normally, this would be where I go into my anti-fondant rant because no matter how good it makes cakes look, I think it tastes like crap and is just evil, but I’m not going to rant about that today.  Instead, I am just going to appreciate this cake for its beauty and point out that I can’t remember the vines in the Mario Bros classics ending in a little loop like that which I think hurts the authentic feel of this cake.  Also, where are the Mario and Peach cake toppers?!  You can’t have a Mario wedding cake without those!

If there is one thing I don’t eat near enough of, it would be cupcakes (although my pants might disagree since I need to lose weight rather than gain it).  It is probably a good thing there are rarely ever any around because I would eat them all and you would need a forklift just to get me out of bed.

Well, speaking of those delicious baked goods known as cupcakes, I have stumbled across some rather fantastic looking Doctor Who cupcakes.

Unfortunately, I don’t know who made these cool Doctor Who cupcakes that feature the TARDIS, a Dalek, the Doctor Who logo and an infinity symbol but whoever made them did a great job.  If you know who made them, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit for their amazing work!

Must not go to the store and buy cupcakes…must not go to the store and buy cupcakes…must not go to the store and buy cupcakes…  Ok, I think the urge has passed.

Crap!  I just looked at the cupcakes again.  Where are my car keys?
