GEEKERY: Let them eat AWESOME cake!


Vin Diesel celebrated his latest birthday with an edible set of D&D 3rd edition books, which got me thinking about cake…

… delicious awesomely nerdy cake. Here are some of my favorites:


Ace of Cake’s Giant Red Squig from Baltimore Games Day 2009… carved for cosumption:


An edible Sigmar Unberogen by Jonas of Comic Bakery


This confection worthy of Kommandant Gurvaldt Irusk by Bethbot


The Millennium Falcon from one of the BoLS writer’s nuptuals – it was tasty


If you’ve ever felt the need to eat William Shatner’s head, Spense has you covered.

And last, but definitely not least, this amazing Storm Trooper by Amanda Oakleaf Cakes

  • Agent OfBolas

    A cake with WHFB logo… nice troll attempt….

    • Nice success.

    • Haakon Slash

      No, no… this is a nice troll. The fondant work is super, and it comes with an awesome message!

  • Firefly

    Christ, they’re even stabbing squigs in Baltimore!! I was actually there for that. =] One of the few times I’ve enjoyed living here bahaha.

    • tomlan

      I was there too. Wow, was it really that long ago? lol

  • Joshua Boyle

    My secretary made me this cake for my birthday earlier this year. (She’s pretty rad.)

    • An_Enemy

      I think this is actually a bit more cool than the cakes shown above. Especially since she isn’t a pro.

    • MrSpacemonkeymojo

      I’m envious of 1. Where you work that has a secretary that understands 40k. and 2. That she cared enough to customize the cake that much.

  • KreskinsESP

    Didn’t they give the Squig cake a special prize in the Golden Daemon?

    • Haakon Slash

      It got an honorable mention 🙂

    My first – and so far only – attempt to exexperiment with edible putty, aka marzipan.

      Not bad at all. I have seen much worse non-edible examples.
