Here is the most awesome list of cakes and cupcakes (perfect for Geeks).

1. Geek Cupcakes!!! Too Cute!

These are by far my favorite cupcakes EVER! How cute are the pencil protectors, taped glasses and compasses? Yummo!  Made by Hey There, Cupcake! found on Flickr.

2.  R2D2 Cake Updated: R2M5 Cake

Mark Randazzo, who has a  bakery, Mark Joseph Cakes, got a lot of buzz for his cake-making skills on BoingBoing, Gizmodo, Elite Choice and more.  Now, you can get the instructions on how to make your very own R2D2 R2M5 cake at B-Side Blog from Mark. The legs are made from Rice Crispie treats too!

*UPDATE* – Thanks everyone for pointing out this is not R2D2! I made the update and need to polish up on my Start Wars trivia.

3. Pacman Cupcakes

So these are CUPCAKES and not a cake… but too cute to resist. This is perfect for any kid who grew up in the 80’s.  From Flickr user hello naomi – these PacMan cupcakes look too delicious to eat.

4. For the Dungeon & Dragons Geek (via Geekologie)

Dragon Cake

This delicious dragon was made by Mike’s Amazing Cakes for some kind of Dungeon and Dragon party.  If you can’t afford to have one made, you can try to make your own dragon cake – but it probably won’t be quite as amazing.

5. For the Camera Geek

This cake was actually made for a wedding! I wonder if the bride was dressed as Peach. Actually, after the bride and groom went around looking for a Mario and Peach wedding topper, the bride decided to surprise the groom on their wedding day with this masterpiece. Read the full story here.

7. Wii Cake for Gamer Geeks

Back in July, 2007 Wired Magazine’s “How To” feature included a Wii Cake that was inedible due to support structures.  However, Brian Walak actually created one that you can in fact eat – and ended up on Martha’s show.  Here’s instructions on how to make your own Wii cake and is another wii cake version by craftastica.  I wonder if Martha has ever even played a Wii?

8. iPhone Cake

I love my iPhone and think this cake might just be one of the easier ones because of the simple shape.  All you need is a steady hand for the icing. [Via The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs]
