I love baking cakes, especially ones that are geeky and challenging. Some of my favorites that I have made are a TARDIS for my husbands 30th birthday and a Mad Hatter hat for my sister’s high school graduation party. In any case, its no wonder that I have collected quite the set of geek cake inspiration from across the internet. With wedding season upon us, its hard not to focus on the wedding cake, the traditional tiered white cake with beautifully piped flowers. Those traditional cakes are usually absolutely beautiful but are totally not befitting a true geeky couple by any means. Most of the time, the geekiness shows up in the grooms cake, however, once in a while you get a wonderfully brave couple who kicks tradition to the curb and you are left with geeky wedding cake masterpieces.
Enjoy, there should be a little something for everyone here!
For the Math Nerd: xkcd Wedding Cake
I hope you noticed that it says: sqrt(<3) or the root of love; cos(<3) the cause of love; and [1 0; 0 1]<3 the identity of love. So incredibly romantic!

Sadly, I don’t know much about D&D, but this is an awesome enough cake I think it is time to give it a chance!
For the Old School Tetris Lovers
The Cake Topper was made of blocks to spell “J” and “C”, after they cut the cake, the bride and groom took the topper apart and found where they fit on the main part of the cake.
For the Lego Fans
Well that’s one way to build your relationship! I really love how this is so pretty and geeky at the same time.
