Hi guys! john (the hubby of Jen) here. Jen asked me to write Sweets this week since she is apparently "busy" doing "everything else." (What? I moderate comments!)
Now, the problem is that today we have thoroughly awesome geek wedding cakes, and I am not, in the strictest sense of the word, a geek. At least, not to the degree which I've married into. However, for your entertainment and enlightenment I will now valiantly attempt to decipher these cakes without the help of Jen OR the interwebs. (May the Shwartz be with me!)
Batman and Wonder Woman! Great colors. And I think the bottom tier is... Metropolis? Maybe?
K, now they're getting harder:
Right. The adorable mushroom toppers are from a Mario game, and the cake is decorated in binary. Booyah. Just don't go asking me to translate it. (And if you do, I'll guess it's something like "In geekiness, and in über geekiness, I thee wed.)
Now we're getting old school:
Look! It's Epcot!
(Why is Jen sighing so loudly behind me? And what is xkcd?)
Oh boy, I'm gonna get in trouble for this next one:
Is it... Zelda? Made of Lego? I don't... I never played it, so...
Look, this is harder than it looks, Ok?
Oh! Oh! I know this! What is that show called?!? It's on the tip of my mind. It's got Bender and... that cyclops lady... Futurama!
Haha! And I've never even seen it!
Also, that crash-landing into the cake thing is genius.
This one I definitely know:
Portal! Jen and I are actually playing the co-op version now.
(Well, not now now. I'm writing this post now. You get the idea.)
On a side note, I just realized something: If you write "The cake is a lie" on a cake, isn't that statement itself a lie? Technically, the lie is a lie since the cake is a cake.
Aaand now my brain hurts.
Let's wrap this up with one of my favorite cakes of all time, made by a baker who made one of our book tour cakes in Austin:
Ya know, I just realized: I've never seen Godzilla. So Transformer Mrs. Godzilla could totally be in there. Huh.
(And speaking of figures, did you notice the bride is holding the groom? Too funny.)
Well, I hope you enjoyed these geeky wedding Sweets, everyone. And if you have a Sweet of your own you'd like to share, please send it to Sunday Sweets (at) Cake Wrecks (dot) com.
Oh, and have a great Sunday.
I'll be playing Portal.
