Star Wars Mighty Muggs Cakes

We’ve all seen a million Star Wars cakes, but Star Wars Mighty Muggs cakes are a new one on me!

Chewie and Storm Trooper cakes

Craftster user doyouloveanapple made these cakes for her partner using a homemade marshmallow fondant. They were based off of the Star Wars Mighty Muggs toys which give them a super cute pop look which lends itself nicely to the cake medium.

The storm trooper was a lemon cake with lemon curd filling and a vanilla butter cream which Chewbacca was a chocolate cake with a chocolate butter cream filling.

doyouloveanapple does give one valuable piece of advice for those looking to make their own Star Wars cakes…

“Fondant that is painted with black food dye does not taste good and dyes your mouth black!”

yikes! good to know!

R2D2 Beanie

First of all apologies for the lack of blogness last week…I was celebrating my 25th birthday so needless to say my brain stopped functioning halfway through the week. On to new celebrations though! If you didnt know, today is Star Wars Day (because its May 4th…may the force be with you…may the fourth be with you….get it? har har) so in honor of this I present a most awesome example in domestic geekery….

R2D2 Beanie

Crafty knitter Carissa knitted this adorable hat for her nephew and like all things good in this world, it blew up on the internet. Unfortunately she isnt taking custom orders…

” Okay, guys. That’s enough. I’m flattered. Really. But no more. Not for now at least. …. No more custom orders. I can’t knit the same hat over and over again for the rest of my life”

Well luckily for us she was so kind to share the pattern on her blog for FREE and in her own words said …

“I recommend you try to find a knitter near you or even learn to knit yourself. It’s a great hobby.”

Well, I know for sure Im adding this to my ever growing queue of awesome geeky themed knits!

This cake is not a lie

I love cake. Ok so I dont love eating cake so much as I love looking at cakes. Im obsessed with watching all the different cake competitions on Food Network, Ace of Cakes and wedding cake specials on WE (yes I hate to admit but I occasionally watch WE just for the cakes). I just love watching the amazing artistic creations made out of sugar and flour. Anywho my good friend Jenn tweeted today about the most amazing cake in the history of amazing cakes. Behold…

Its a girl! Its Darth Vader! Its adorable! Im just going to go out on a limb and say this is the best baby shower cake ever. I mean look at the details! Theres ruffles and bows and bottles…and Lord Vader. And lets not overlook the amazing 90s-rific airbrushing with the planet scape in the background. Bravo…bravo. When I decide to squeeze another life form out of my nether regions I will celebrate the occasion with this cake made by

couture ad target towards boys?!?

in case any of you do not already know this, i love pacman. i wish i owned my own arcade machine of ms. pacman. what i love even more is when couture ads incorporate pacman or other beloved nerd things:

besides loving me some old school arcade, i also am obsessed with legos.  i love building them!  i actually have a star wars lego kit at home patiently waiting for my crafty fingers to build it!

ads that incorporate nerd references + expensive couture clothing = super nerd awesomeness!  i mean come on, with a hot model blasting a lego gun, who wouldn’t buy her red ruffly dress?
