Cake Boss' 3 Geekiest Cakes

My improv troupe's latest obsession is Cake Boss, the TLC reality series starring Jersey cake maverick Buddy Valastro and his loud and crazy family. Half the fun is seeing his sisters make his life a living nightmare, his delivery men hitting potholes, and the pranks resulting in a dropped cake. The other half of the fun is derived from the cakes themselves. I didn't know "fondant" was that versatile a substance. And I know a couple of my troupe members went to buy some as soon as we got back into town. Like I said, obsession. It's what happens when you're on tour, tired and stuck in a hotel room, and there's a Cake Boss marathon on tv. Things just happen. This is dedicated to them...

Siskoid's Blog of Geekery presents : Cake Boss' 3 Geekiest Cakes
3. Zombie Cake
Mmm, fondant maggots.

2. Indricotherium Cake
That is a beautiful prehistoric mammal, and Cake Boss believes it's one of the nicest things he's ever made. Always a shame to eat a creature that's the last of its kind.

1. Robot Cake
Buddy goes above and beyond with LED lights and actual movement. A cake to kill all appetites.

Bonus: SBG's Special Requests
1. A Superman Island cake. It's got to be suspended from the ceiling and have a crumbly brownie underside.
2. A TARDIS cake that has more cake on the inside than seems possible for its inside.
3. Troi peptide cake with mint frosting. I guess you sorta need Marina Sirtis to finish it though.
Anything you want for your geeky cake-worthy event?
