In Hong Kong, the steamy glass cases are filled with fresh milk buns, walnut butter cakes and globular blobs of red-bean mocha, or Mexican custard loafs, Swiss roll-ups and Italian bolognese sauce buns. Within minutes, I find the golden fleece of a pineapple bun.

Hong Kong’s bakeries are a bun deal in this month’s issue of Air Canada’s enRoute magazine.

À Hong Kong, les présentoirs embués portent pains au lait frais, gâteaux beurre et noix, mokas globulaires aux fèves rouges, pains mexicains à la crème anglaise, roulés suisses et brioches italiennes à la sauce bolognaise. Je repère illico le floconneux doré d’une brioche-ananas.

Notre journaliste se remplit la brioche de pâtisseries hongkongaises ce mois-ci, dans le magazine enRoute d’Air Canada.

Dear Tumblr,

My name is Ant Roman and I make Geeky cakes- it’s what I do! For the past 4 years, I’ve been working from my home making cakes, cookies and cupcakes for all kinds of fandoms & fans. The internet tends to think Nerdache Cakes is a team of people who bake, make cakes and share it all- but it’s just me. I’ve whipped up geek treats for places like Funko, Seventeen Magazine, The Today Show, Frederator, Nintendo World and tons more. But I can no longer work from the space I do now, and I don’t want to stop doing what I love.

So I’m asking for your help. I started a Kickstarter to open a nerdy bakery + cafe- a real place you can stop by and get (and be shipped) tasty treats! But we only have 8 days left, and are over $70K away from our funding goal. 

Please, Reblog and pledge! Just $1 can make a huge difference. You’ll also get awesome rewards like shirts, cookies, Nerdache Boxes and lots more. 

This bakery is 4+ years of my life doing what I love, for the people I love. I know Tumblr can help me make my geeky dream come true, and help me build this fandom bakery. Any bit helps, and I greatly appreciate it.

Nerdache Cakes Bakery + Café

Our favorite geeky baker, Ant Roman of Nerdache Cakes, is raising dough to go beyond her virtual presence of the past four years and open a real live bakery and café, a place where you and your nerd-friends can hang out, drink coffee, and talk all things Mario and Kenshin Himura with your mouths full of sweets.

At the very least, watch Ant’s super inspiring Kickstarter video (don’t miss the PuppyCat, Catbug, and Adventure Time cakes in the background).

Best of luck, Ant. We’re going to go and contribute right now.


I make Fandom & Geeky cakes for a living… But now I need your help!

For the past 3 years, I’ve made nerdy cakes from my home. From requests from Tumblr, to baking up sweets for companies like Seventeen Magazine, Funko, The Today Show, Youtube Space NY and Nintendo World- but I can no longer work from such a small space, and every week it gets harder to continue to do what I love.

I started a Kickstarter to open a Geeky Bakery- a place you can have all the nerdy treats you love with fandoms you enjoy! But we have just 13 days to raise the rest of our funds to open our doors, and with the way it looks now I’m afraid we won’t make it there.

Please you guys, help me out! Even just a dollar from each of my followers would give us nearly twice our funding goal. There’s also delicious rewards like nerdy cookies, tees’, monthly cookie subscription boxes and more!

Please pledge! Even If you can’t donate, please reblog and spread the word!

Legend of Zelda Cupcakes!

Love this mix of LOZ Icons on cupcakes, from 8 bit Triforce, Hylian shields, 8 bit health & mana and of course, Link! I think Majorras’ mask was my fave cupcake in this set.

Just 10 Days left in my Geeky Bakery Kickstarter, and we need your help! We still have over $70K to raise and not a lot of time. Please, reblog and pledge! Every bit helps.
