Its not too uncommon to find some cool Batman cakes floating around like the awesome LEGO Batman cake I posted not long ago, but this is the first Poison Ivy cake I have ever seen and it is amazing!  It won the silver award at the NEC Cake International Competition in November 2011.  The level of detail on this cake is just fantastic!  This Poison Ivy cake was made by the fantastic cake makers at Mamma Jamma Cakes, the same people that made the Doctor Who TARDIS cake I posted last year as well as the blue Dalek cake I posted last year.  Too bad they aren’t in my area because I would have them make me an amazing cake like this!

I’ve always been impressed with people that are masters at origami.  It is mind blowing some of the things that some people can make by just folding paper.  The only origami I have ever done was to make a frog that jumps back in grade school thanks to a foreign exchange student from Japan that would come in occasionally and teach us something about her country.  Anyway, some origami master apparently decided to take a couple dollar bills and turn them into the Enterprise from Star Trek!  It is awesome!  If you have any awesome origami skills, let us know in the comments!

Despite having seen some people make some absolutely mind blowing things in Minecraft, I still don’t really see the appeal of the game.  I know people love the game, I just don’t think it looks like that much fun.  Regardless about how I feel about the game, I still love seeing the crazy things people build in it or in this case, a cake made to look like a Minecraft grass block.  Sweet Disposition Cakes from Adelaide, Australia used 1,025 little blocks to make this amazing looking Minecraft grass block cake.  Talk about some tedious work with an incredible result!

In the days of Photoshop and other tools for creating digital art, painting feels like it has gone by the wayside a bit.  Sure, there are still people like me that love getting up early on Saturday morning to watch re-runs of Bob Ross on the local PBS station, but it seems like few people appreciate painting and even less paint these days.  Well, Etsy seller autogeography is one of those people that still likes to paint and painted this fantastic water color of a vase with the fireflowers from the Super Mario Bros games.  If you like this awesome picture, you can buy a print of it for just $24 or if you would prefer to have the original watercolor, you can buy that for $80!

Although I never posted it on here, I’m sure most of you saw the fantastic Eye of Sauron cake that was floating around the internet for the past couple of weeks.  Well, I have found something that I think might just be better, an Eye of Sauron cupcake tower!  I don’t think the cake on top looks quite as good as the other Eye of Sauron cake that has been floating around but at least this one has cupcakes!  For those unfamiliar with the Lord of the Rings, the inscription on the side of the cake is Elven and is translated to:

One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them,
One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

The letters on the cupcakes are also Elven and are taken from the letters in the inscription.

Anybody who has been a reader of Global Geek News for any significant amount of time (I’ve been blogging here for 7 years and I will be hitting 2000 posts very soon!) knows that if there is one thing I love, it is women in Link cosplay.  Why do I love it so much?  Simple, because I find pointy ears to be attractive.  Well, unfortunately this Legend of Zelda cosplayer has her hair covering her ears so I don’t know if they are pointy or not, but even without them, this is still some great Link cosplay!
