If you have been reading Global Geek News for a while, you know that one of my favorite things to post is nerdy wedding cakes.  They always look amazing so I just can’t help but fall in love with them.  Well, I have come across yet another incredible gaming wedding cake that I knew I had to share.

This amazing gaming wedding cake features tiers of Super Mario Bros (I’m not sure which one), Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, and Pac-Man / Ms. Pac-Man with some Legend of Zelda hearts on top.  The level of detail is quite impressive!

Sadly, I don’t know who made the cake to give them credit or who the happy couple is to congratulate them so if anybody knows, please post in the comments below so they can get the credit they deserve!

One of my favorite arcade games to play in various restaurants around town when I was a kid was Pac-Man.  Sadly, all but one or two restaurants have taken the old Pac-Man games out but at least I can play it on my phone when I get the urge.  However, Pac-Man food isn’t as easy to come by.

Back in January, I posted some really cool Pac-Man cupcakes that I found at my State Fair last year but I have to admit, I would much rather eat these Pac-Man cookies!

I’m not sure who made these delicious looking cookies but they were posted on Reddit by user mcmullet.  Whoever made them (possibly mcmullet), they did an amazing job with a couple of exceptions.  First, Where the heck is Inky?!  And second, why is Pac-Man headed right toward Blinky?  Does he have a death wish?  I want answers!

Not being a very crafty person, I could never dream of making something like the spectacular Halo Master Chief cross-stitch seen below.  I guess I just didn’t get the crafty genes from my mother because she can do stuff like cross-stitch and I could never do something like that.  However, I don’t have to be able to do it to appreciate it and that is a good thing because this Master Chief cross-stitch is quite impressive!

The wife of Reddit user OkieCoder created this Halo Master Chief cross-stitch masterpiece over a period of five months.  The end product was made of a mind blowing 51,900 stitches!  Talk about dedication!

If you have have some crafty skills and have made any geeky wonders like the one below, let us know in the comments below!

If there is one thing that never fails to bring a smile to my face, it is a really good console mod.  In the past, I have posted a bunch of amazing NES console mods (just search ‘NES mods’ on the right to find them), but I think this is probably the first one I have posted where the end product looked absolutely nothing like an NES.  Where most console mods I see do fancy things with an existing NES, this one seems to have thrown the iconic NES look out the window and shoved the innards into a toaster instead!

This toaster Nintendo Entertainment System mod was created by Jarno Kotavuopio.  It has a ton of cool lights and buttons but most importantly, it is still a fully functional Nintendo NES!

Below is a picture as well as video of the impressive build.  I love that even the controller got a little attention and now the Nintendo logo on it lights up!

With Valentine’s Day this last weekend, I had a feeling that I might see some really geeky and awesome engagement ring boxes and it looks like I was right!  In the past, I have featured a couple of really cool Legend of Zelda treasure chest engagement ring boxes like this one that plays music and another one that has some great art work on it.  However, as cool as those are, I think this one with a floating rupee is my favorite!

This handmade Legend of Zelda treasure chest engagement ring box with a floating rupee was created by Etsy seller IndyFurniture.  They are selling this Zelda engagement ring box for $60.  Not only does it have the cool floating rupee effect, but it has some lights on the bottom to make sure you have the perfect lighting for that special moment when you ask that special someone to marry you.  However, if you want the full effect, you will have to sing the treasure chest opening sound when you go to open it.
