These Bowls Of Ramen Are Actually Cakes
This incredibly convincing confectionery comes courtesy of Machi no Kumasan, a small bakery in Takasaki City.
And in case you’re curious, here’s a list of the real ingredients that they used to make the fake ingredients:
Noodles – Japanese chestnut and kabocha pumpkin cream
Broth – Early Grey jelly
Bamboo shoot – grilled apple
Egg – annin tofu (Almond jelly)
Chashu pork – raspberry jelly
Green onions – pistachios
I thought I would share with you this amazing Plants vs. Zombies cake my COO’s wife made for my 43rd birthday. Yes, I’m a big kid — I also work in the video game industry on creative services and marketing side (as well as cut my teeth in the media, on the video game print magazine side for many years). In any event, her name is Imelda Wikamulia and she’s incredibly talented at making these cakes. She also made a X-Mas themed Super Mario cake for the holidays for my company.
Thanks for the tip, Greg! If any of you other readers have cool stuff to share, be sure to send it our way by emailing email@example.com!
Epic Pokémon Stadium cake by kashii-tan.
From the artist:
People were literally FIGHTING over getting their favorite pokemon with their piece of cake but it was the most loved cake that everyone enjoyed. It is modeled off of the Super Smash Bros. pokemon stadium and Jessie (Musashi) and James (Kojiro) were the toppers

It’s hard to tell from the angle of the pic, but it totally looks like they managed to squeeze all the original 151 ‘monz in there.
And now to pressure my fiance into letting us get our own geeky wedding cake…
Not to be racist or anything, but that’s sooooo much black icing. That stuff dyes your lips, teeth, and gums and it doesn’t wash off for, like, hours. And also, it tastes like black licorice sometimes. Seriously, who likes black licorice? Again, totally not racist.
What Time Is It!? Incredible Edible Lumpy Space Princess Time!
Amanda Krueger whipped up this batch of cake pops which are basically cakes on a stick (effing brilliant invention!) made to look like that baddest beeyotch in The Land of Ooo, the one and only Lumpy Space Princess. Snackmatical!
This dude’s wife threw him a pretty rad Boba Fett themed b-day bash.

Recently (June) my wife, Julie, treated me with a Boba Fett themed birthday party. Definitely a Star Wars geek’s dream.
She put tons of work into it, so I thought I should share the amazings with the internets!
A custom painted Dunny!
Specially ordered Fett colored Converse with hand stitched Bantha Skulls on the tongues.
Bobiskey! Its a bottle of Jameson whiskey with all its labels replaced with personalized warnings, logos, and descriptions. Shes a kick ass graphic designer too!
LEGO Boba Fett Mini-figure Cake! Melted Hershey’s milk chocolate and dyed white chocolate make up this piece.
There is a full set with detailed pictures of all these items on my flickr.
And now, dudes, you’ve just realized how much your better halves DON’T love you.
This is almost as cool as my 23rd birthday party where my girlfriend rented out an entire night club, invited about 60 of our closest friends, and surprised me with two strippers, one of whom let me lick whipped cream from her boobies. No, wait… this is nowhere near as cool as my 23rd birthday party, but it’s still pretty awesome!
Thanks for sending this in, Jonny!
