A couple weeks back we discovered the cutest little camera cookies on Etsy. Still not having satisfied our sweet tooth for sugary treats dressed as our favorite gadgets and videogame characters, we decided to go exploring for cupcakes too and were delighted to find an even more tempting selection than cookies – at least to stare at.
Twitter Cakes: Who knew the Twitter bird could be so pretty? These Twitter cupcakes are like small works of art – we definitely would opt to place these on display versus eating them.
Lego Star Wars: Nothing is nerdier than Star Wars other than Lego Star Wars – and we love it. Check out the detail on R2D2.
Super Mario Cupcakes: Not just Mario, but all his power-up’s and foes make up this sweet box of Mario Brothers themed cupcakes.
Ninja Turtle: Taking us down memory lane, these nostalgic Ninja Turtle cupcakes are nothing short of awesome. Where’s Splinter?
Princess Leia: The cutest version of Princess Leia we’ve ever seen, whose hairstyle is made up of two Oreo cookies. We aren’t masters in the kitchen, but we’re tempted to try and make this one.
Pacman: There’s something elegant about this Pacman cupcake and we think it’s the perfectly crafted shape of this character plus the edible jewel decoration that represents the many dots he gobbles up.
Angry Birds: We’ve been seeing a lot of Angry Birds paraphernalia around lately – T-shirts, stuffed animals and birthday cakes. These Angry Birds cupcakes are some of the best we’ve seen where color coordination and different types of frostings have been crafted to match each character. Sweet!
Stay tuned for our favorite geek and gaming inspired kyaraben (character bentos).
