Until I started blogging about them around the middle of last year, I had never knew such a thing as a groom’s cake existed.  Every wedding I have ever been to has had your multiple tier wedding cake and thats it.  I don’t know if this is some kind of newer tradition or what (I haven’t been to a wedding in a couple of years as I try to avoid them if at all possible), but from the groom’s cakes I have seen such as the Borderlands Claptrap groom’s cake and the SNES groom’s cake, I love the idea!

Speaking of great groom’s cakes, this incredibly detailed Xbox 360 groom’s cake was made by Pink Cake Box.  To say that I am impressed with the detail on this cake would be an understatement as it even has the wifi adapter on it!  On a slightly related note, the wifi adapter for the Xbox 360 is utter crap and should be avoided.  Wired is always better than wifi.

Anyway, as for the delicious details of the cake, it was a red velvet cake with 2 layers of lemon cream cheese and 1 layer of raspberry chambord (whatever chambord is).

Congrats to the happy couple!

It is traditional for most families to have some sort of Christmas wreath hanging on their front door during the holiday season.  While I usually enjoy seeing wreaths that are entirely Christmas focused, I would much rather prefer to see people hang geeky Christmas wreaths.

A couple of years ago, I posted I super geeky computer hardware Christmas wreath with all kinds of computer components in it and until now, I thought it was the coolest wreath ever.

The awesome folks over at ThinkGeek are selling this 8-bit LED holiday wreath for just $19.99.  This would be the perfect thing to get for any gamers that you know who also love the holiday season!

The LEDs flicker on the gold coins to really bring some attention to the wreath although I think it will get plenty of attention anyway with the 1UP mushroom wearing a Santa hat, the Tetris brick, Pac-Man cherries among other iconic gaming pieces.  One thing to note though is that this requires 2 AA batteries to run the LED lights and they are not included.

This would look great on my door this year!

One of the things I enjoy posting the most are custom shoes that are really geeky.  I don’t care whether they are high heels or a pair of sneakers, I love me some geek shoes!  In the past, I have posted everything from spectacular Super Mario Bros shoes to some rather cartoony Mass Effect shoes (see all of the shoes I have posted here), but I think this pair of Mass Effect shoes is the most impressive pair of shoes I have ever seen!

Etsy seller ChesireShop is selling these spectacular and very shiny custom Mass Effect Converse shoes for $120.  Considering my normal New Balance tennis shoes cost me around that price, this seems like a heck of a deal for such beautiful work!  These are hand-painted Converse sneakers in case you can’t tell and they were inspired by the Mass Effect comic.

I’m very tempted to order a pair for myself even though I have never even played Mass Effect!

Are you looking for something gaming related yet slightly gross to hang around your neck?  If you answered yes, then I think I have found the necklace for you!  Nothing says I love Half-Life quite like a headcrab dangling from around your neck.

Etsy seller ParanoiamitSahne is selling this awesome looking Half-Life 2 inspired headcrab necklace for €27.00 or $35.29 USD.  These are made to order so expect it to take a couple of days to make one and ship it to you.  Also, it is being shipped from Germany so keep in mind that shipping will likely take longer than usual unless you happen to live in Germany.

I’m very tempted to order one myself as I am getting kind of tired of wearing my Gears of War dog tags that I have been wearing for the last 5 years or so.  I’m just not sure I am patient enough to wait that long for it to get here.  Amazon’s free 2 day shipping (I’m a Prime member) has spoiled me!

A few weeks ago, I posted some amazing Legend of Zelda sugar cookies that looked just like the 8-bit NES classic and while I still think those cookies are pretty amazing, the crisp look and incredible detail on these Legend of Zelda cookies blew me away!

The fantastic folks over at Nerdache Cakes are hard at work making more amazing looking delicious treats (check out the Doctor Who cupcakes they made that I posted yesterday) and this time they have made some magnificent Legend of Zelda cookies!

Legend of Zelda fans will instantly recognize these cookies as the Hylian Crest, Hylian Shield, 8-bit Link, and an 8-bit heart.  I wish somebody would make me some spectacular Zelda cookies like these!

Although I bought Assassin’s Creed III when it launched (actually, I pre-ordered it from Amazon for the extra bonuses although I am now kicking myself for that after seeing how cheap it will be on Black Friday), I have not got around to playing it.  I still need to finish Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Halo 4 before I move on to it, however I have been very impressed with the cosplay the game has been inspiring so far.

Not too long ago, I posted some spectacular Assassin’s Creed III Conner Kenway cosplay (and Aveline de Grandpre cosplay) and while I think this Connor Kenway cosplay is quite good, its not as stunning as that.  However, this video more than makes up the difference with the beautiful music, especially the violin playing!

Lindsey Stirling is the awesome cosplayer and violin player in this awesome Assassin’s Creed III inspired music video.  I’m not sure where this video was shot, but the scenery is beautiful and the video turned out amazing!
