Things We Saw Today: Happy 4th of July, Everyone

This Captain America cake (based on Avengers fan art by Adventure Time‘s Natasha Allegri, so how’s that for a geek pedigree) and other patriotic cakes by Nerd Ache Cakes. Try to eat that and not feel guilty. (via Pancake Pancake Pancake)

And if you thought that would be hard to eat, take a look at this Leonardo Da Vinci-inspired cupcake by Mike’s Amazing Cakes. (via That’s Nerdalicious)

Megan Lee of Unicornucopia found this display by Jesse Draper in a Trader Joe’s and here’s what I say: Today, we are all Avengers. Or Founding Fathers. Or Founding Mothers. Whatever you’d like to be, just don’t handle lit fireworks. Happy Independence Day, everyone! (via Uproxx)

  • Marvel will officially unveil its untitled new project — which is presumed to be Guardians of the Galaxy — at San Diego Comic Con, but we can officially tell you that its release date (we’re assuming) is being moved from May 16, 2014 to August 1, 2014. (via The Hollywood Reporter)
  • Tom Hanks and his production company, Playtone, have been working on an animated series with Yahoo! called Electric City! It debuts on July 17th, and here is an eyeball from it! (via MTV Geek)

      It is your patriotic duty to eat that cake.

    • Xandra Dust

      Well, if it’s my patriotic duty…

    • Barbara C. Sutton

      just don’t handle lit fireworks. Happy Independence Day, everyone!

      I love that Founding Fathers/Avengers display, but I have to say…Ben Franklin was FOR SURE the Iron Man of the Continental Congress. FOR SURE. Super-genius inventor who got around with the ladies and had a way with a smartass remark? That’s my man Ben. 

      (And also, um…Uncle Sam is not real, and Lincoln wasn’t alive during the revolution. Where’s the love for T. Jeff and John Adams?)

      Well done, Yahoo. I might have to visit your site on the reg now.

      That Da Vinci cupcake is just splendid. What are all those intricate bits made of?

       Nah, Jefferson was Iron Man.  Can Thomas Paine be the Hulk?

    • Ganieda

      Eeeeeh…I might tag Jefferson as Captain America. All earnest and eloquent, and probably always doodling things on the edge of the Monticello designs.  I can get behind Paine or Adams as the Hulk.
