Another Rubik's Cube Geekcake

Hi all.

Just a brief post this Friday (apologies)

Another Rubik's Cube Cake.

Unfortunately I do not have any creation details for this one. But it does look like a marvelous chocolatey M&M's creation.

See you all Monday

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, questionable geekcake

Occasionally I come across a well made geekcake and have to think long and hard about whether or not to post it here.


Sometimes the original link site has material not family friendly. I have tried to make sure all my posts and linked sites are suitable for all. I think the topic of cake should always be all inclusive !

Sometimes the topic of the cake is something I just don't understand the logic behind - I found a topless Lara Croft cake once, and no I'm not providing the link. :D

Sometimes the inspiration for the cake is - well shall we say adult themed - like the Legend of the Overfiend cake I once found, and no I'm not posting the link to that one either. :P

Today's cake, is none of the above, but I do question the wisdom of making such a cake for a 4 year old.

Grand Theft Auto (TM), is a well crafted, multi-series console game which deals with adult themes. It's always deal with adult themes. The creators revel in thier ability to make the game as edgy as they like with no fears of upsetting their intended adult audience.

The games official website frontpage has looped welcome messages. Some examples of which are:

Welcome to Liberty City: A social experiment gone terribly wrong.
Welcome to Liberty City: Where the American Dream goes to die
Welcome to Liberty City: Criminals and Degenerates welcome
Welcome to Liberty City: The center of the known universe, for egomaniacs
Welcome to Liberty City: Overpriced real estate in a cultural wasteland
Welcome to Liberty City: Great to visit, even better to leave

The "hot coffee mod"  caused a controversy in 2004,  but in reality the 'cut scene' did not siginificantly deviate from the style of authorised game play.

Please don't misunderstand me, I have no problem with adults playing any GTA game. The 
Video Game Rating Content system of all participaing countries seems to largely work, but it is deinately not a game for 4 year olds.!

Still, an most excellant geekcake don't you agree?

See you all on Friday !

"A Long time ago, in a galaxy far far away".. Starwars Geekcakes

Ahh Starwars. The original trilogies are fondly regarded by an entire generation of Geeks. Star Wars, first release in 1977, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back,  first released in 1980, and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, released in 1983

The saga of Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, Yoda, and other unforgettable characters inspires lots of geekcakes, and below are what I think is a choice selection:

Firstly, Adam and Rae loved Starwars so much that they decided their wedding cake should be  a chocolate Jabba-The-Hut.

Of all the characters that you could make into cakes I would have thought that Jabba was the most un-appealing figure, but this cutout section shows the chocolately goodness. 


Over at Confectionary Delights, the talented cake creator Michele, has created  a cakey tribute to the scenes depicting Han Solo frozen in Carbonate:




Finally (and only because this post is getting to be on the longer side):

The torso is cake covered with buttercream, and dressed with fondant clothing, arms, and feet. The ’skull’ is made of “brown crunch,” which is like Rice Krispies Treats. But… brown. Fondant makes up the features of the head, including those distinctively-Yoda-ish ears.

The creator has her own blog which gives you step by step instructions on how to create your own Yoda cake here:

The new trilogies: The Phantom Menace - 1999,  Attack of the Clones - 2002, and Revenge of the Sith - 2005, have  not inspired any geekcakes that I've been able to find, but there must be some out there, and if I find any I shall be sure to share them with you.

See you Wednesday!
