With all of the excitement around Doctor Who lately, especially with the announcement of the 12th Doctor and the 50th anniversary special just a couple of months away, I couldn’t help but post this absolutely beautiful Weeping Angel cake.  I’ve posted a cool Doctor Who cake in the past that featured a Weeping Angel statue but it can’t hold a candle to the cake below.

I’ve seen some rather incredibly detailed cakes before but very few have reached the level of detail and beauty that this Weeping Angel cake has achieved.

This Weeping Angel cake was created by Mike’s Amazing Cakes.  I’m not sure I understand the whole bunny version of the 11th Doctor thing but even its sonic screwdriver is cool!

If I ever have a Weeping Angel cake made for me, these guys are the one to do it because I just can’t believe how incredibly detailed they made this cake!  My only concern is not being able to blink until it is entirely eaten.  I am a fast eater but not blinking for that long would be uncomfortable to say the least.

One of the downsides of the neighborhood where I live is that around here, we don’t have mailboxes that sit along the street like many places do.  Many houses just have a box next to their front door for the mail or others are like me and just have a slot in the front door itself.  It makes me really jealous of people that do really cool things with their mailbox.

In the past, I have featured a really silly Futurama Bender mailbox, a Boba Fett mailbox, a rather clever Darth Vader mailbox and even a solar powered Star Trek mailbox but I think this Tie Bomber mailbox below is my favorite.

Sadly, I don’t know who this awesome Tie Bomber mailbox belongs to so if you know who the owners of this are, please let me know in the comments below so we can give them the credit they deserve!

If I ever move somewhere that I can have a real mailbox, I definitely want one like this.  Or maybe a TARDIS mailbox.  Hmm, that is a tough decision.

One of my favorite things to check out at my local state fair the giant sand sculptures that they often have (I don’t think they have had them the last couple of years for some reason).  Each year there is a different theme and they work on it throughout the fair so you can see them create this amazingly detailed sand sculpture that is easily over ten feet tall.  Unfortunately, while they have done everything from dinosaurs to sports, they have never done a Doctor Who sand sculpture and after seeing the one below, I really hope they do someday.

This fantastic 50th anniversary Doctor Who sand sculpture featuring the 11th Doctor, some Daleks, the TARDIS, a couple of Cybermen and a couple of Weeping Angels can be seen at the Sandworld sand sculpture festival in the UK.  The festival runs until November 3rd so you still have some time to go check this out in person if you happen to be in the UK between now and then.

I wish they would have sand sculpting festivals around here because sand sculptures are cool!

It amazes me that in around 2,800 posts I have written on Global Geek News over the past half dozen years or so, only once have I featured a Stargate cake.  I’ve posted hundreds of other cakes ranging from Star Trek and Star Wars to Super Mario Bros and Legend of Zelda but I’ve only posted one really cool Stargate cake in the past.  Well, it is time that changes and I share another incredible Stargate cake I have stumbled across.

This incredible Stargate birthday cake features a very realistic looking Stargate that even has all of the symbols on it.  It appears to have been created by a Lina DeMorais and I’d say she did one heck of a job!  Something tells me that Samantha’s birthday was quite epic.

I am curious to know how long it took to get that level of detail on the Stargate and most importantly, I wonder if the cake tasted as good as it looks?  I wish somebody would make cakes like these for my friends because I would love to have a piece of Stargate.

I’ve heard of scarecrows before but a scaredalek just seems a bit absurd, especially when it is 35 foot tall and made out of straw!

This monumental 35′ tall straw Dalek was designed by Mike Harper and built with the help of a team of volunteers.  It took them around 700 man hours to build this colossal Doctor Who monument but not only does it look amazing, but the head and weapons move and it even has audio!  Apparently, it required around 6 tons of straw and 5 tons of steel to build.

An ice cream shop called Snugbury’s near Nantwich in Cheshire has apparently been doing giant straw builds like this every year for over a decade and with the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who just a couple months away, they decided to do a giant straw Dalek.

Not only did they make this incredible straw sculpture, but they also created a ‘DaLICK’ cone and part of the money it brings in is being donated to Cancer Research UK.  Sadly, there is no mention of what the ingredients to the DaLICK cone are but if you are in the area, I’d still recommend stopping in to get one since the proceeds are going toward a good cause and when else are you going to have the chance to see a talking 35 foot tall Dalek made out of straw?
