Being a food and video game lover, I have posted some really cool video game themed bento boxes in the past such as the DIY Super Mario bento box, Pac-Man bento box and Portal bento box.  However, as cool as they all are (and you really should check them out), they are all blown out of the water by this amazing Metal Gear bento box.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Metal Gear franchise, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima commissioned this mind blowing Metal Gear bento box to be made for the celebration.  At first, I honestly didn’t think the faces were even real food until I read more about this work of video game food art.  Below are the yummy details and a couple of pictures that will blow your mind!

Kojima pointed out that the faces were made from mashed potatoes, the hair and beard were green onions, while the eyes were quail eggs. Tapioca was used to achieve the eye color.

Being a huge Doctor Who fan, I love when I get the opportunity to post something Doctor Who related, especially cakes.  In the past, I have posted a couple of very impressive Delek cakes including a Dalek cake that is an overload of chocolate and a Dalek wedding cake that opened up to display the Dalek within.  However, as amazing as those cakes are, I don’t think they are quite as realistic looking as the one below.

This incredibly realistic Dalek cake was created by Mike’s Amazing Cakes for the 16th birthday of a very lucky Doctor Who fan named Irene.  To say that this cake turned out really well is an understatement as it even had me doing a double take to make sure it was a cake!  If I ever need to hire a cake maker to make a Dalek cake, now I know who to contact for the best cake possible!

The flood of gingerbread creations seem to show no signs of slowing down and this time Super Mario Bros is getting into the action with a gingerbread castle!  Last March, I posted a very impressive gingerbread version of Princess Peach’s castle (which I suggest checking out as it will blow you away), but this one seems to be themed on the castles from Super Mario World.

This Super Mario World themed gingerbread castle was created by Andree P. (@cakeit_studio on Twitter).  I’d say Andree did a phenomenal job with this Super Mario World gingerbread castle!  I especially like the snow covered question blocks on top!

Apparently it was created by covering the gingerbread with fondant which I would normally gripe about but considering I’m not one to eat gingerbread anyway, I can let it go this time.  As much as I don’t like the taste of fondant, you can’t argue with how beautiful it makes things like gingerbread castles.

Is is just me or does there seem to be a flood of cool superhero cakes lately?  I’m not complaining by any means, it just seems like there are a lot of them being made these days.  Just this week, I have posted two superhero mashup cakes, one featuring Superman, Batman and Spider-Man, the other featuring the Hulk in addition to Superman, Spider-Man and Batman.  Well, this cake is just a simple Spider-Man cake but is really cool!

This spectacular Spider-Man cake was created by Sweet Picasso Cake Creations for the 5th birthday of some lucky kid named William.  I would say the cake maker outdid themselves with the incredible level of detail on this cake!

I hope this kid realizes just how lucky he is to get a cake this cool for his 5th birthday.  I am very jealous!

Even though I may not be a huge fan of eating gingerbread, I do appreciate seeing all of the cook gingerbread creations that people make this time of year.  I have posted a lot of cool gingerbread creations recently ranging from a gingerbread TARDIS and K9 to a gingerbread Millennium Falcon.  Well, now we have a gingerbread creation from the Star Trek universe!

The Food Replicator blog has posted about this awesome gingerbread Star Trek communicator that they made recently.  You can find links to the recipe and stuff they used over on their post, but here are some of the details for how it was made and a picture of the completed TOS communicator!

I cut out the pattern pieces on thick card paper and then used that to cut out the cookie pieces. I froze the dough before cooking as this helps it keep its shape.

I used royal icing (1 egg white, add icing sugar until the desired consistency is reached) for all decorations, as well as for gluing the pieces together.

Toothpicks and scrunched up pieces of plastic wrap are both very useful to use as prop-ups while waiting for the royal icing to dry when gluing the pieces together.

If there is one series of games that I don’t think gets the attention it deserves, it is the God of War series.  Sure, it gets quite a bit of attention in the PlayStation community, but for what I consider to be the best game series I have ever played, I think it deserves more attention from the gaming community as a whole.  As much as I love other games, the God of War games are by far my favorite.

Well, in my search for cool God of War cakes this morning, I came across this cake that is fit for the gods!

This God of War Temple of Fates cake was created by Captain’s Mix & Magic.  Not only does it look impressive, this God of War cake serves 120 and required 160 man-hours to make!

This cake is definitely a work of art!

Last week I posted a rather awesome Superhero mashup cake featuring Spider-Man, Superman and Batman.  It seemed like people enjoyed the cake (and why wouldn’t they with as awesome as it was?) so I thought I should post this cake which is equally as cool if not more so!

This superhero mashup cake features Superman, the Hulk, Spider-Man and Batman.  This clever cake (I love the Hulk hands holding the Superman tier) was created by the clearly awesome cake makers at The Dainty Baker.  I’d say they did a pretty super job as the detail on this cake is quite impressive!  Its not everyday you see a cake that has the Gotham cityscape on it!

As far as I can remember (and my memory sucks), I don’t think I have ever had the opportunity to play an old Atari game console.  As a kid, my family always stuck with getting me Nintendo systems although there was the rare occasion I got to play systems like the Intellivision at a relatives house.

While I may have never had the opportunity to enjoy the games that the Atari had to offer, I figured there would be more than a few retro gaming lovers out there that would love this Atari 2600 cake!

This spectacular Atari 2600 cake was created by the clearly awesome cake makers at Pink Cake Box.  To say that I am impressed with this Atari 2600 birthday cake would be an understatement as it almost looks real enough to play!  For as much as people dread turning the big 4 0, I think if I was going to get a cake like this for my big day, I would be looking forward to it!

When it comes to cakes for special events, it seems like Hollywood likes to go above and beyond and create something amazing.  When it comes to spectacular cakes coming from the entertainment industry (which I rarely seem to stumble across), in the past I posted an amazing Harry Potter Hogwarts cake from one of the movie premiers.  Well, now I have come across a Game of Thones cake I am sure all of the show’s fans will love!

This Game of Thrones cake was created by Contemporary Cakes for the wrap party for the end of one of the show’s seasons.  I’ve never had any involvement in a tv show, but this seems like it is definitely an appropriate way to end the season.

Brace yourselves, a sugar high is coming!

Just in case you haven’t already had a sweet tooth overload with all of the awesome gingerbread creations I have been posting lately like the Bilbo Baggins gingerbread hobbit hole or the Millennium Falcon gingerbread ship, I thought you guys would love to see this awesome looking gingerbread Eye of Sauron!

This amazing gingerbread Eye of Sauron has enough chocolate on it to drive any chocoholic crazy was created by Reddit member mcgilligan69.  Apparently it originally started out as just another plain old gingerbread house until they had a better idea and turned it into this gingerbread Eye of Sauron instead.  I’d say they definitely made the right choice!

For some strange reason, I am now craving chocolate but I can’t figure out why…
