Cakes of the Nerdy Kind

As we discussed in this post, I am not a cake person. I’m more of a cupcake person. But that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy looking at beautiful, gravity-defying, and/or nerdy cakes that define awesomeness. So when I find cakes that look like these? I almost want a cake just to show off my own geekery. I mean, if someone can make a Star Wars cake this amazing, they should definitely get accolades. They’ve even got Han Solo up at the tip top (!!) and I’m pretty sure I’ve made myself clear on my ridiculous love for Harrison Ford:

This is great for the retro video gamers who never cheated on Mr. & Mrs. Pac-Man:

More awesome Pac Man cupcakes:

And then there’s the classic cupcakes my brother would love, being Space Invaders and all:

This one is almost perfect for me and Jason. We play Halo pretty much every single night, typically no less than 3 games. (And for the record, I’m way better than him!):

And then there’s this amazing cake. As two people who grew up on Mario Bros. (from Nintendo systems to today’s) I would have a hard time cutting into this one, both for fear of gravity as well as my own awe:

And finally, the piece de resistance. This cake? I would totally kill for this one. Not only is it a nerdy cake, but it’s a nerdy HARRY POTTER CAKE. It’s like my geek dreams come true! I’d absolutely trade cupcakes in for this unbelievable cake:

I adore nerdy cakes. It’s like food porn for my eyes and stomach. Yum!

    I have seen the last two cakes before. I love the Super Mario cake. You could probably make something like that into cupcakes if you really wanted.

      I love it too. It’s amazing; I can’t imagine the time and effort put into that cake! It would be fun for cupcakes too. I’d have little goombas and mario hats!
