Magpie Monday on Tuesday: Someone’s in the Kitchen….

Tuesday is for tasty tidbits on your telemetric taste buds!


I opted to open with this picture for all my Whovian readers, but, man, if this isn’t my favorite cake of recent memory. The Weeping Angels just make me so happy (while, of course, terrifying me), and this cake version by Mike’s Amazing Cakes is, well, amazing! Click the links or the picture to see more detailed shots.

This Hello Kitty Terminator cake is pretty darn awesome! I love all the detail. Speaking of detail, you can check out Between The Pages for a ton of pictures of this cake by Laura from El Laboratorio de las Tartas (do it, do it!).

Just look at this classy Star Wars-themed wedding cake, just look at it! More images here, if you can bear it. Via.

Ha! This divorce cake by Nicola Shipley of Tattoo-cakes made me laugh. She says, “A pretty cake about freedom, rather than a bride stabbing the groom version.” Via.

Oh man, this Sharknado cake is awesome (another picture at the link)! Charm City Cakes did a great job. Via.

This fun infographic print by Kathy R. Jeffords takes all the guess work out the question. Via.


This Splash Red chopping board by Mustard would be great fun at Hallowe’en (though I have to say it looks a bit like ketchup with those tomatoes…).

ThinkGeek’s Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise spatula is some kind of fancy. Check out the product page for a GIF and a video. Via.

I wouldn’t mind having this Doctor Who silicone tray (also from ThinkGeek). Who knows? Maybe I’d make Dalek cakes and chocolate TARDISes (TARDISi?) for Christmas. Or just ice cubes to send to people. Via.

Another French food bit: “WikiPearls are small balls of ice cream (it could be any food or beverage, really, especially if they’re tough to handle) that are covered in an edible protective membrane—this ‘skin’ is comparable to a grape or human cell.”
