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!

While I don’t know that I would ever want to grow a great big beard like the guy in these videos, I would be nice to know that I can if I wanted to.  Unfortunately, I just don’t have the facial hair density required to grow anything that looks halfway decent.  Oh well, its not like I would want to cover up this sexy face anyway.

Well, there is one guy that can not only grow a great beard, but he can really rock some Legend of Zelda songs too!

YouTube user Smooth McGroove is the awesome and hilarious bearded dude in these videos performing some awesome Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time songs such as Saria’s Song (Lost Woods), the shope theme and Gerudo Valley song all in the style of acapella!  Be sure to keep an eye out for his cat who makes some hilarious appearances in the videos!

It feels like I haven’t posted much geeky fingernail art lately (the only one I have posted so far this year was the Star Trek fingernail art a couple of weeks ago) so I thought it would be the perfect time to post some more nerdy nail art.  In this particular case, I have found some amazing Legend of Zelda Triforce fingernail art!

This amazing Legend of Zelda fingernail art was apparently created by imgur user atomicwrangler.  It feels a bit more repetitive than many of the nail art posts I write about as each finger is the same but I’d still say they turned out really cool!

If you want to see a bunch of more really cool fingernail art pictures that atomicwranger has made, check out the gallery in the source link below.  There are all kinds of cool designs including ones that look like Pokeballs and a really bloody yet awesome Assassin’s Creed set.

There seems to be a lot of people getting snow these days although the snow we are seeing where I live doesn’t seem to be amounting to much of anything as we are still around 35% below what we should have for this time of year.  However, it looks like one person who has seen a decent bit of snow decided to do something fun with it and carved a giant Legend of Zelda and Hylian Crest in the snow at their school.

I’m not sure who the Legend of Zelda loving snow enthusiast is but I would say they have the initials KM.  I’m not even sure what school this was spotted at but it was posted on Reddit by a couple of different people (this particular picture came from user Suave92).  Whoever made this is obviously an awesome person that I would love to meet!

Have you seen any geeky things made from the recent snow storms?  Let us know in the comments below!

Although I posted a really cool Super Mario Bros engagement ring box and even an even cooler Super Mario Bros marriage proposal video some time ago, I can’t recall having ever seen somebody have a Super Mario Bros themed wedding.  Well, if you are planning on throwing just such a wedding, I think I have found the perfect wedding bouquet for you!

Etsy seller RBKCreations is selling this awesome fireflower wedding bouquet and matching boutonniere for $135.  If you love Mario and don’t mind using felt flowers instead of real ones, why not go for it and use this?  And if you are planning a Super Mario Bros themed wedding, I want to see pictures and video!

Of course if you are more of a Doctor Who fan, you could always make your own Sonic Screwdriver bouquet like the one I posted a long time ago.

Recently, I was given a NES that while I haven’t tested it out myself, I am pretty sure it doesn’t work and I have been trying to decide what I want to do with it.  The first thought that occurred to me was to turn it into a lunchbox like the NES lunchbox I posted about in the past.  However, I am leaning toward the idea of giving it new life by putting a Raspberry Pi in it and running old NES games on an emulator.

However, no matter what I decide to do, I would give anything to have the NES painted up like Super Mario Bros 3 like the one below!

This NES that has been painted up to have a Super Mario Bros 3 look to it was apparently created by Ebay user hellokitty11111111111.  While it is not longer available, I’m told it had a $125 buy it now price on it which seems reasonable considering how good it looks.  I hope they make another one just like it because I want one!
