Well, maybe. With cake related Portal themed products, you always run the risk of somebody thinking it’d be funny to make it a lie (also this is clearly not officially licensed, or Valve would be selling it in their store). And it’s hard to tell from the user reviews here, because, frankly, between “the cake is a lie” jokes and Amazon customer reviews on joke products we may have found the greatest source of natural irony the world has ever known. So how about we just look at the product page, and then go home and make our own black forest cake.
Ant, proprietor of Nerdache Cakes, realized a while back that her penchant for papercraft would also work really well in fondant, and from that genius springs this set of Doctor Who themed cookies, featuring the TARDIS and an assortment of companions to pose and nom.
And the only thing that could make them better is if they were edible. Imnopeas crafted them for their son with acrylic paints, and warns that they are not for human consumption. Here are some in progress shots!
Hong Yi has decided to post a different work of art every day for the entire month of March on her Instagram. The catch is that they’ve got to be made of food and they’re all arranged on the same blank white plate. Which will be important to remember when you see this depiction of a kraken attacking a ship and the Great Wave off Kanagawa. She even does a Banksy!
Geeks never pass up an opportunity to integrate their fandoms into their everyday lives. Whether we’re pouring our coffee into a Green Lantern mug at work, sporting a Sailor Moon hoodie at the gym or driving around with nerdy decals, bumper stickers and custom license plates on our cars, we love what we love, and we’re not afraid to show it. Former theme park designer Jenn Fujikawa and licensed attorney Giulia Palermo have taken their adoration for all things geeky one step further – into the kitchen, paying homage to their fandoms with food.
It’s a fact of life that some of us have, at some point in time, contemplated sneaking a Girl Scout Cookie away from the warm embrace of some one we know. Maybe a sibling. Maybe a friend. Just so long as they had more than they could conceivably eat in one sitting and we had none. But I can safely say that the majority of us have never contemplated stealing 450 cases of Girl Scout Cookies directly from a GSA warehouse.
But I can only say “the majority” and not “all” because somebody totally did that in South Carolina last week.
It shows no hint of Gillian Anderson or Gina Torres, who have both been cast in the show, with Andersen making her first appearance on American television in more than ten years. But we can’t fault it too much. After all it still looks very promising, and we know they’ll be in the show somewhere. It’s very interesting to see hints of the same design style as Pushing Daisies, but with the tonal gamma turned way, way down.
