    Oprah’s Favorite Things Is Here And Now It’s All In One Place On Amazon

    Oprah has been sharing her “Favorite Things” list with us every holiday season for the last 20 years.

  • Rock Band Drum Cake makes for a delicious peripheral

    Yum, who’s hungry for Rock Band Drum Cake?! The icing on the cake (pun intended!) is that this life-size delicacy actually sits atop an actual Rock Band drum kit stand. The 12-year-old who received this cake on his recent birthday apparently had a spare stand sitting around after he pummeled a previous set of drums to death and had to replace them. The whole setup almost looks too good… Read More

  • Aluminum MacBook Pro, iPhone turned into cake

  • When you want to care enough to send the best, but forget

    I mailed a birthday card out yesterday to a family member who’s birthday was, in fact, last week. I’m such a bad relation. I had the decency to include a check and a witty comment, but I know it’s going to be too little, too late. If only I could go back in time to yesterday, knowing what I know today. See, I just found out about cake in a jar! Boy howdy, would the lateness of… Read More

  • Turn your Xbox 360 avatar into a cake-top figurine

    How many of you modeled your Xbox 360 avatar after yourself? Plenty of you, I’m sure. Not me, no. (Gotta be different.) My avatar, picture here, is named—yes, he has a name—Detective Bashyourbrainsin. He’s my idea of a rogue 1970s New York City police officer. Read More

  • Cake maker messes up cake, hilarity ensues

    A customer brought a picture of her boss into a bakery to be made into a cake — so far so good, right? She handed the photo over on a USB flash drive and when she returned to pick the cake up she found that instead of the photo of her boss immortalized in frosting, the bakery had drawn the spitting image of the actual thumb drive she’d given them.

  • Mario and Princess Peach tie the knot, here’s the cake

    Yum. Look at this deliciously entertaining wedding cake, will you? It’s like Mario Kart meets Super Mario Galaxy meets whichever game features the Princess’ palace. Smart of them to move into her place, too, since Mario lives in a garden level apartment in Brooklyn (as you’ll remember from the Super Mario Brothers Super Show). Peach’s place is probably a lot nicer… Read More

    Amazon’s CEO, Jeff Bezos, shot out a personal note to customers apologizing for the Kindle’s sold out status. Apparently, they weren’t prepared to sell out of the eReader in 5.5 hours.

  • Make Cakes in Your Computer! EZ-Bake Drive

    Geeks like to eat sweets. Don’t believe me? Go find a geek, you’ll find junk food. But homemade cake is better than store bought cake.

  • The Tastiest Video Game You'll See All Day

    Meet Mario. He’s a plumber who picks up random coins he finds and sits around all day taking mushrooms and picking fights with some dude named Bowser. That Mario can be sort of a deadbeat. This Mario can be very delicious. You see, he’s a Mario made out of individual cupcake squares with flavored frosting. He is delicious (and certainly not nutritious), just the way we like… Read More
