Had Enough Cake Yet? I Didn’t Think So…

Geek Culture

We’ve posted some cool geek cakes here at GeekDad. Some of them have been pretty awesome, but as a fantasy reader, I thought I’d seen the pinnacle when I found the flickr gallery of Astro-Lopithecus and the astounding dragon cake pictured here. The level of detail, the artistry, the coloring. It’s an incredible sculpture in flour and icing done for the 30th birthday of a lucky gamer.

Alas, I was foolish enough to follow Astro’s link to Mike’s Amazing Cakes, whereupon I got my mind blown. Superhero cakes, fantasy castle cakes, biplane cakes. Cakes Seussian and Mother Goose-ian. Want a cake shaped like LEGO blocks? Mike McCarey has done it (in his own words, he will build "anything that’s possible within the limits of gravity and physics.")

Knights in armor. The Master Chief’s helmet. Pirates! (Alack, no ninjas, though I’m sure they’re available for the asking). As I clicked through the gallery, I admit to drop-jawed astonishment at what the guy is doing. I wish I could link directly to some, but the one flaw in the whole arrangement (aside from the annoyingly Disney-esque background music) is that the the entire site is done in Flash. So no direct links. Still, I was suitably impressed.

Then, though, Mike went and stole my geeky little heart with this. A Mars-ipan lander? Truly, this is nerd-vana.
