Whenever I find myself posting about cupcakes, it makes me wish I lived somewhere like San Francisco where they are a much bigger deal than they are here because around here it seems like you only see them at special occasions like weddings and other big parties.  Actually, I would rather cupcakes become a bigger deal around here than moving somewhere that they are because moving is a real pain in the butt!  Anyway, speaking of cupcakes, I think I may have found my all time favorite Doctor Who cupcakes in the pictures below!

In the past, I have written a ton of posts featuring all sorts of Doctor Who cupcakes like these ones and all of these (you can find a bunch of other Doctor Who cupcake posts if you search for them with the search box on the right) but I don’t think any have turned out quite as awesome as the ones below.

This amazing TARDIS cake and these incredibly detailed Doctor cupcakes featuring the iconic outfits of all of the Doctors was created by Madrid based baking company, Catcakes.  It is too bad they are halfway across the world from me because I would love to order some of these incredible looking cupcakes!

When it comes to tea, I’m strictly an unsweetened fresh brewed iced tea kind of person.  I don’t do sweet tea, I don’t do bottled tea and I definitely don’t do hot tea (I don’t like hot beverages of any kind).  However, I know that there are a lot of people out there that do enjoy hot tea (you guys are a bunch of weirdos!) and for those hot tea lovers who also love Doctor Who, I have found the perfect TARDIS teacup, saucer and spoon that will make your timey wimey tea time fantastic!

Etsy seller DragonflyArts sells these awesome made-to-order TARDIS teacups for between $36-62 depending on if you want just the cup or some combination of the cup, saucer and spoon.  Also, be aware that shipping times at least for the US are around 4-6 weeks so if you are thinking about getting this as a gift, make sure you order with plenty of time to spare.   Below are some details about these Doctor Who inspired creations as well as a picture.

Each cup and saucer are thrown on the potters wheel, hand painted with black clay & various glazes, hand carved and then stamped with custom made clay stamps that I made just for this item.


Glazed on the inside with starry white & blue glazes and on the outside in my own version of Tardis blue (non-toxic), which contains hints of darker blue, lighter blues and hazy green nebula mists.

Perhaps one of the greatest memes on the internet today is the Captain Picard facepalm meme.  Whether you enjoy memes inspired by stupid people or you just like Captain Picard, I think most everybody enjoys it.  Speaking of enjoying it, now you can enjoy it in a totally new way with some delicious Picard facepalm cookies!  Nothing will help you cope with the stupid people you encounter quite like some delicious facepalm cookies!

JustJENN over at JustJennRecipies made this awesome looking Picard facepalm cookie.  She also posted the recipe and the instructions so if you wanted to make your own Picard facepalm cookies just like hers, here is the recipe.  Of course the recipe will only get you part of the way since you still need the Picard facepalm cookie cutter which you can get over at WarpZonePrints for just $5.  And if anybody decides to make more than they can eat, you are more than welcome to send all of the extra cookies to me!  And don’t forget to make sure you are wearing a Picard cooking apron when you make them.

Bake it so!

While I can’t say I understand what all the fuss is about IKEA having never been to one (I was living in Utah when they got theirs but it was so crazy when it was brand new that I wasn’t going anywhere near that place), I have heard enough about it to know you have to assemble everything yourself which is the idea behind this awesome build your own Borg Collective t-shirt design!  I’ve always thought it would be cool to have my own Collective but my hardware building skills just aren’t good enough, much less trying to fuse the hardware with flesh.  Maybe I will get that good some day!

If you have sense of humor when it comes to Star Trek stuff like I do, than this t-shirt is perfect for you!  The amazing folks over at TShirtbordello are selling this Build A Borg t-shirt for just $14.99!  This shirt is certain to make all of your Borg loving friends laugh, especially if they are also IKEA nuts.

Just remember, while wearing this shirt, your standard greeting must be “We Are the Borg. You Will be Assimilated. Resistance is Futile.”

One of those always interesting life questions is whether a person prefers briefs of boxers?  I’ve always been a briefs guy not because I dislike boxers but just because I have never really given them a chance as I haven’t felt a need to change as I generally like briefs, even if they can be a bit swampy during the summer.  Well, with Doctor Who boxers like these TARDIS and exploding TARDIS boxers, I think I might finally have to give boxers a shot, especially with the sale that allows me pick these up for cheap!

The fantastically geeky folks over at ThinkGeek are selling these Doctor Who TARDIS and exploding TARDIS pair of boxers for $24.99 (17% off of the normal $29.99).  But wait!  There is more!  If you buy these (or ANYTHING on ThinkGeek) between now and 11:59pm ET 5/26/14, you can get 20% off of your order with the coupon code ‘GEEKROAR’!  That is a great deal, especially if there are several things you have been thinking of getting from them but have been waiting for a sale.

So, is that an exploding TARDIS in your pants or are you just happy to see me?

Happy Monday everybody!  I hope the weekend was nice and relaxing for all of you.  I’m sorry for not posting anything last week besides my fights with a content thief (which still continue as GoDaddy hasn’t responded to my last takedown request that I sent on Friday), but I intend to make up for it this week as I look to do at least one post every day this week!  And of course there is no better way than to start off the week with a great sale on an awesome Doctor Who t-shirt!

The fantastic people over at TeeFury are selling this comic book style Doctor Who t-shirt called Doctor Comic for just $11 today only!  This cool tee featuring the 10th Doctor and Rose Tyler was cleverly created by designer Harebrained.

Whether you are a Doctor Who fan and a comic book lover or a Whovian who never acquired a taste for comic books (like myself), if you love the 10th Doctor and Rose, you need this t-shirt!  I plan on ordering one myself after I post this as the 10th Doctor is my favorite and its hard to beat a price like this!  I really don’t need another Doctor Who t-shirt as I already have a ton of them (I’m wearing my Whovian shirt as I type this), but I NEED this shirt!
