A much as I enjoy traditional art such as music painting, I think my favorite modern art medium is lattes.  Geeky latte art never fails to bring a smile to my face.  While some is better looking than others, I still appreciate the work that geeks put into these awesome beverages.  In the past, I have posted a ton (you can find them all by searching for latte art on the right) of latte art such as the mind blowing TARDIS latte art I posted back in September, but now we can add Daleks to the list of cool latte art creations.

This spectacular Dalek latte art was created by DeviantART user Coffee-Katie who created this at Caffe di Angeli in Fort Worth, Texas.  I might not be a latte drinker (I’m not a fan of hot beverages) but if I am ever in Fort Worth, I am definitely stopping there to get a Dalek latte!

CAFFEINAAATE!

Thanks to the holiday weight gain that I experienced this past holiday season due to all of the cookies I ate, I have cut back considerably on the number of cookies that I have been eating and by cutting back I mean I have hardly been eating any.  However, if somebody put this plate of Doctor Who cookies in front of me, I don’t think I could say no.

In the past, I have posted some cool TARDIS and Weeping Angel cookies and while I absolutely love those, I think these are now my favorite Doctor Who cookies!

Unfortunately, I don’t know who made these awesome Doctor Who cookies (if you know, please let us know in the comments so we can give them credit) that includes all of the Doctors, the TARDIS, a Cyberman cookie, a Weeping Angel cookie and even Sonic Screwdriver cookies.  I’ve seen a lot of geeky cookies in my day but I think these are by far my favorite!

And now I am hungry for cookies.  Damn.  So much for my diet I guess.

Its been a while since I have posted any cupcakes so I thought this would be the perfect time to post some cool Doctor Who cupcakes.  In the past, I have featured a number of delicious looking Doctor Who cupcakes including a TARDIS and 11th Doctor cupcakes as well as some really detailed Dalek cupcakes.  Well, now we can officially add fish fingers and custard to the list of cool Doctor Who cupcakes I have posted about.

Sadly, I don’t know who made these awesome Doctor Who capcakes to give them credit so if you know who made them, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit!

I have to admit, the TARDIS cupcakes look a little weird with the windows sticking out like that but the Fez and bow tie cupcakes are pretty cool.  However, I think my favorite is the fish finger and custard cupcake because who would ever think to put something like that on a cupcake?  However, I’m not sure what the cupcake in the upper left is supposed to be so if you have any ideas, please share them in the comments below!

Now I am hungry for a cupcake!

In the past, I have featured a crapton (that is the technical term) of Star Wars wedding cakes.  However, until now, I don’t think I have ever posted one that was made to resemble the Battle of Hoth.  Most Star Wars wedding cakes I come across seem to be Millennium Falcon cakes so it was a breath of fresh air when I saw this Hoth cake!  It is almost enough to make you want to get married.  Almost.

Unfortunately, I don’t know who made this awesome Star Wars Battle of Hoth cake or who the happy couple is that had this for their wedding day so if anybody knows, please let us know in the comments below so they can get the credit and congratulations they deserve!

Now I am hungry for cake and feel like watching Star Wars.  I can take care of the second part myself but I think I am going to need one of you to make me a cake as my baking skills are non-existent.  Any volunteers?

As much as I love shooters and other types of video games, I am an RTS player at heart.  While I spend most of my gaming time these days playing Age of Empires Online and maybe some Age of Empires II HD, my favorite series of RTS games growing up was Command & Conquer.  You could say that my love for them made me the blogger I am today because it was my passion for them that got me into writing because I decided to contribute to many of the C&C fan sites more than a decade ago.

Well, speaking of Command and Conquer, I came across these amazing wooden Command and Conquer coasters that one fan has made.  The set of coasters shows the GDI and NOD logos and they turned out looking amazing!

These were created by wtmh and sadly they aren’t for sale (I already tried contacting him to buy them) but if EA gives the ok, he will make more and sell them.  If he is able to make more and sell them, I will definitely let you guys know because I know there are other C&C fans that read Global Geek News that would kill to have a set of these GDI and NOD coasters!

Unlike the rest of the world which seems to run on coffee, it has never been something I have cared for.  The taste has never been my favorite but my real issue with it is that I just can’t stand hot beverages.  Anything approaching room temperature or warmer is no-go territory for me.  However, even though I may not drink it, apparently Daleks are a big fan of the caffeine!

Unfortunately, I’m not sure who took this picture or what coffee shop this is at (if you know, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit), but whoever made this is pretty awesome!  As a Doctor Who fan, something like this would definitely get me to buy from a restaurant a lot more often.

The next time you go into a coffee shop, tell the barista “CAFFEINATE!” in your best Dalek voice and see what kind of reaction you get.  I am curious to know if it scores anybody some free drinks.

CAFFEINATE!
