Best Nerdy Cakes Ever

How did I manage to get in this predicament?!

I’m not gonna lie, I’m more of a pie girl than a cake girl…Mmmmmm…rhubarb….but one thing that cake has going for it that pie doesn’t is it’s artistic possibilities.  Seriously, you can do ANYTHING with cake.  As a Food Network afficianado I know this for a fact.

A friend recently sent me a photo of a Clone Trooper cake made by her friend Loriann at Ah, How Sweet bakery and it got me thinking about what other awesomely nerdy cakes might be out there.  The following cakes were made by Loriann: Pink Laptop, Steve Jobs Apple, Pac-Man, Starry Night, Clone Trooper, and Jack Skellington.  All of the rest I found via Google so if it’s your cake and you want credit for it, hit me up and I’ll be happy to oblige.  In an attempt to save some space (there were just too many that I loved!) I clumped some of them together.

So grab your R2D2 eggs and your whisk and get ready to see some kick ass cakes!

Let’s start with my favorite franchise, shall we?  That would be Star Trek  for any first time visitors. Here are a couple of nice insignia cakes:

Oh no! The Klingons and the Borg!

Phew! Our heroes are here to save the day.

And then, of course, there’s this:

Not creepy at all Data, not creepy at all...

On to Star Wars.  We’ve got these familiar faces:

And these:

You want to see some Doctor Who? Ok fine:

If you’re as big a fan as I am of the “Vincent and the Doctor” episode, this one is for you (add a little “For Amy” text on the cake for some extra credit):

Nothing says “I do” like a nice Aliens wedding cake:

This would be the ultimate birthday cake for my friend (and uber Ghostbusters fan) Hayden:

How about we switch gears and look at some fantasy cakes.  Here’s one for the Lord of the Rings fans:

And one for the Harry Potter crowd:

And an epic tribute to Dungeons and Dragons:

Are you a gamer?  Here you go:

Or if you’re really old school:

Or if you’re really REALLY old school:

If you’re just into math and technology in general:

But what about us comic book fans?  It’s ok, I got you covered.  Here’s all your favorite heroes in one delectable creation:


And my personal favorite:

I really missed the giant alien squid in the movie version of Watchmen but they definitely nailed this guy:

Whether you’re a Walking Dead  fan or just like zombies (that would NOT be me) this wedding cake is for you:

Nightmare Before Christmas is ridiculously awesome and also full of undead dead characters:

If you’re a child of the 80’s like me then you’ll love these.  This Bumblebee cake is from the Michael bay movies but I couldn’t find a great Bumblebee cake from the cartoon and this one is pretty awesome so I’m rolling with it (hee hee, get it?):

Heroes in a half shell!  Turtle power!

And so ends are cake odyssey.  I hope that you’ve enjoyed the trip as much as I have.  I’d like to end it on this classy note:

You're welcome.

Dear Walking Dead (again)


Dear AMC’s The Walking Dead (again),

I’ve had nightmares about you for the last four nights in a row.

Not cool.

It’s all your fault, you know.  You draw me in with your compelling story telling, make me fall in love with you all over again, and then scare the living daylights out of me.  What the hell is your problem anyways?

Lately you’ve been teasing me.  You haven’t been rearing your ugly head very much so I think I’m safe.  Then all of the sudden you show up at the pharmacy, or in the barn, or at the bottom of the well.  Seriously, you had the worst prune fingers I’ve ever seen.  It was disgusting.  You should really take better care of your personal hygiene.

But I digress.

I’m starting to get worried here.  You scare the crap out of me, I leave, and then I come back for more.  What in the sam hill is wrong with me?  You even tried to help me out.  I couldn’t find you at first but eventually I hunted you down.  Now I’m convinced that I need therapy.

And yet, here I am, huddled on the couch, covering my eyes half the time while you bitch and moan but don’t really say anything meaningful.  Your communication skills are seriously lacking, did you know that?  Sometimes I can differentiate between a moan and a groan, but most of the time its like you expect me to read your mind.  Well guess what?  I can’t. Learn to deal with it you stupid walker.  And the way you deal with children is seriously fucked up.  Poor Sophia.

I don’t know what to do.  I should probably never speak to you again but I know that’s not going to happen.  I just really want to know where this relationship is going to end up and I hate having friends tell me what you’ve been up to.  I want to find out for myself.

God I hate you so much sometimes!

But I also love you.


You suck.
