Today begins a new weekly feature here at GAS: Wednesday Geeky Pics! Brought to you by the joys of Flickr and Creative Commons, this means a post filled of pictures on some new geek-related topic. Remember that you can click on the link for the original Flickr page, which may include info about the photographer and links to more of their work. Also, feel free to suggest topics for future Wednesdays!
And for our inaugural pic spam, I present to you… geeky cakes.
Star Trek: Look how happy that tiny, edible Kirk looks! I know just what he’s thinking: “Eat me.”
Intellivision: for when you need your sugary goodness old school.
Super Mario: Just before Mario says “I do,” she rips the veil off and says, “The princess is in another castle.”
The Cake is a Lie (Portal): I’m making a note here–huge success.
Tower of Dells: I’ve never been so tempted to chew on wires.
Stilbene Molecule: extra geek points for being completely non-obvious (what, no sucrose molecule?)
Code: sometimes simplest is best.
Fitts’ Law: for modeling movement around the cake?
And that’s it for today! There are obviously many, many geeky cakes out there. Feel free to share your favorites!
