Although I have had a lot of suckers in my day, I have to admit that I have never had a lollipop.  Its not that I wouldn’t mind trying one (I would love to), its just that nobody has ever offered me one and its not something I ever think about picking up when I am in a candy store.  However, if I ever find a candy store with a Death Star lollipop like the one below, I will definitely get one!

Although its not in a candy, you can get these Death Star lollipops on Etsy!  Star Wars fan and Etsy seller designerlollipop is selling this set of 6 Death Star lollipops for $12.

In case you needed another reason to get these awesome Death Star lollipops, they are marshmallow flavored!  I know I definitely want a marshmallow flavored Death Star!

To be completely honest, I have never even heard of a proposal cake before seeing this Doctor Who proposal cake.  I have heard of engagement rings and whatnot to celebrate the popping of the question but a proposal cake?!  This idea just seems strange.  I’m not complaining as any excuse for cake is a good excuse for me, I just think it is a little odd… or ood.

Well, if you are going to do something less traditional like a proposal cake, you might as well do it right and have an incredible Doctor Who cake made for the event!

The awesome bakers over at Nerdache Cakes (who I have featured many times in the past which you can find by searching for them on the right) were the creators of this amazing Doctor Who cake that features various iconic bits of Who including the TARDIS and the 4th Doctor’s scarf.  Speaking of the 4th Doctor’s scarf, we are running a caption contest to win your own 4th Doctors scarf.  It ends Wednesday, February 6, 2013 so go enter before its too late!  Anyway…

The TARDIS (the real “cake” part of this cake) is banana cake with dark chocolate crunch bits and ganache layers while the two figures are made of fondant.  I’ve never had a banana cake before but it sure sounds and looks yummy!

Even though I can’t say I am a huge fan of snow, I really wish we were getting some this winter.  It shouldn’t be this dry in Colorado in the winter!  We got 3″ here yesterday but that is all we have had in probably more than a month which is really bad because we need the snow to have enough water for the rest of the year.

Well, there are some lucky people that still seem to be getting plenty of snow or at least enough to make a giant Darth Vader snow sculpture.

Unfortunately, I don’t know who made this awesome Darth Vader head snow sculpture (if you know, please let us know in the comments so we can give them the credit they deserve), but I think they did a great job!  I would almost rank this up there with the Darth Vader and R2-D2 snow sculptures (which I suggest you check out) I posted in the past.  It might not be quite as detailed but it is still really cool.  And big!

When it comes to plants, I’m not really the person you would want looking after them.  I have a remarkable skill for killing even the toughest plants.  The fact that I even have a lawn is quite amazing considering I can’t seem to keep much else alive.  Well, even though I may never have a green thumb, I still like the idea of a TARDIS flower pot!

Unfortunately, I don’t know who this awesome Doctor Who inspired TARDIS flower pot belongs to (if you know, please let us know in the comments so we can give them credit), but it is a really cool idea!  The best part is that it looks simple enough that anybody can make their own with a square pot and some paint.

If you have a TARDIS planter or see this and decide to make your own, share pictures with us in the comments below!

Giveaway restricted to U.S. residents only. Submissions will be accepted through Wednesday February 6, 2013.

Normally, I don’t give a crap about who makes the designs on the t-shirts I wear.  However, there is one person that I make an exception for as I am a HUGE fan of hers and I always buy one of her shirts when I come across a new design.  That person is Megan Lara.  If her name sounds familiar, it should as I have featured several of her shirt designs in the past (did I mention I am a huge fan of hers?) such as the Doctor Who Soufflé Girl aka Oswin Oswald shirt, the Rose Tyler Bad Wolf shirt and a rather awesome Battlestar Galactica Starbuck shirt.

Well, the fantastic folks over at TeeFury are selling a couple of her designs today including this Doctor Who River Song Hello Sweetie shirt for just $10!  The other shirt is inspired by Stephen King’s Dark Tower series.  However, since I haven’t read that series and I am a huge Doctor Who fan, the River Song shirt is the one I am most excited about (and I think you will be too)!

As soon as I hit the big blue publish button on this post, I will be going straight over to TeeFury to buy this shirt and you should too!  Not only is the design awesome, but they make high quality shirts so you are getting a great deal.

I am curious, are there any t-shirt designers you follow?  Let us know in the comments below!
