Gozer: The choice is made!
Venkman: Whoa! Hold on!
Gozer: The Traveller has come!
Venkman: Nobody “choosed” anything! [turns to Egon] Did you choose anything?
Spengler: No.
Venkman: [to Winston] Did you?
Zeddemore: My mind is totally blank.
Venkman: I didn’t choose anything!
[All three slowly turn to confront Ray]
Stantz: I couldn’t help it. It just popped in there.
Venkman: [sternly] What? What “just popped in there”?
Stantz: I- I- I tried to think…
Spengler: Look!
[They all look over one side of the roof]
Stantz: No! It can’t be!
Venkman: What is it?
Stantz: It can’t be!
Venkman: What did you do, Ray?!
Zeddemore: Oh, s**t!
[They all see a giant cubic white head topped with a sailor hat]
Stantz: [resigned] It’s the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

He felt sorry for her having to eat two slices of white toast every single morning due to severe allergies, so he started “playing with toast to get her excited about her breakfast again.” Source


Going Bananas with @funwithfruit

For a cheerful dose of Elisa’s banana art, follow @funwithfruit on Instagram.

“They are such a cheerful fruit with inbuilt comedy value,” says Elisa Roche (@funwithfruit), a London-based journalist explaining her passion for bananas. While living on the Caribbean island of Martinique for a year, Elisa became obsessed with bananas. “The fruit there just tastes better,” she says. “I’d go through several a day.” But it was only recently that she discovered the curved fruit as a canvas.

“I draw whatever pops into my head using a black Biro and gel pens,” she says, adding that the shape of each banana is also a source of inspiration. Once a piece is done, Elisa takes a picture and eats the fruit. Although Elisa says it feels “cathartic” to throw the painted skin away, she admits, “If there are any scientists out there who can tell me how to preserve them, I’d be intrigued.”


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!

Kawaii! These little kitties aren’t just unbelievably cute, they’re also edible. They’re made by a Japanese mom named Caroline for Neko no Hi or Cat Day, which takes place each year on February 22nd.

Cat-shaped treats seem like a wonderful way to celebrate how much you like your feline friends. These treats are cat-shaped nerikiri, which is “a traditional Japanese sweet made by mixing shiro-an (sweetened white bean paste) with gyuhi (made of glutinous rice, similar to mochi but softer).” Caroline sculpts her nerikiri cats and kittens into various sizes and poses and then uses edible dyes to add distinguishing markings and fine details. She even makes little accessories for them, like tea sets and pillows for extra-comfy lounging.

Based on the effort that goes into making these sweets, it seems likely that Caroline’s family probably has at least one real life cat of their own and we’re guessing it leads a wonderfully spoiled life.

Simply watching Adventure Time is often enough to make us hungry for sweets, but now we have an actual edible Candy Kingdom to tantalize our tastebuds. This mouthwateringly awesome Gingerbread Candy Kingdom was made by Redditor IHaveAFluffyCat (who actually does have an adorable fluffy cat).

The amount of time, effort, and candy that went into this work of edible art is amazing. It’s beautifully detailed from top to bottom, but we’re particularly impressed by the Gumball Guardians, whose sugar glass heads contain real gumballs.

This gingerbread house replica of The Overlook Hotel from ‘The Shining’ is nearly 4 feet long, has a hedge maze made of Rice Krispies, and famous scenes from the film that can be seen in the windows.

The impressive display was hand made by Redditor eudicotyledon and her family as part of an annual tradition.

It’s made entirely out of gingerbread, icing, fondant, candy, and Rice Krispie Treats!

Everything from the wallpaper, carpet, and paintings to the ghosts and the bloody elevator is edible.

Basically, it’s perfect.


Zero Waste ‘Eat-Your-Own-Art’ Masterpieces with Danling Xiao

Don’t miss one of Danling’s sculptures. Follow @mundane_matters on Instagram.

Yes, Danling Xiao (@mundane_matters) plays with her food, but she also devours it. “I call it ‘eat-your-own-art,’” the 31-year-old graphic designer says. “I’m really enjoying my zero-waste practice!” Three years ago, she toyed around with her first sculpture, a pumpkin doll, but last year, a stressed and anxious Danling quit her 9-to-5 job in Sydney to focus full time on produce. “Many people think I’m just doing cute fruit art, but what I’m doing reminds us where our food comes from and helps to raise awareness about sustainable living,” she says. Her only tools are a chopping board, toothpicks, a $10 knife and all-natural fruits and veggies — many of which she gets from shopping the “imperfect fruit” section at her local farmers market. They often work best for her quirky designs, anyway. “Imagination is key,” Danling says. “When you can imagine, the world is your oyster.”

This wedding dress is actually a cake. It took over 300 hours for 3 expert cake artists to build the elaborate, 165-pound gown, which features edible details like skirt ruffles, intricate lace pieces, and silver beading. Source


Today the Department of Delicious Deception is feasting on impossibly smooth glazed cakes that look like colorful marble sculptures. These exquisite treats are the work of Russian confectioner Olga Noskova, who shares photos of her reflective desserts on Instagram, including the occasional peek behind-the-scenes:

A video posted by Ольга (@olganoskovaa) on Dec 22, 2015 at 3:36am PST

Redditor SuperDrew124 satisfied the curiosity of people who were dying to know how Noskova achieves such a perfectly smooth, shiny, and sometimes marbled effects on her cakes by sharing their own recipe for a mirror glaze:

Ingredients: 20 g Gelatin Powder, 120 g Water, 300 g Glucose, 300 g Sugar, 150 g Water, 200 g Sweetened Cond Milk, 300 g Chocolate (White, Milk, Dark or a combination), Food Coloring

1) Bloom the gelatin in the water;
2) Boil the glucose, sugar & water;
3) Remove from heat and add the gelatin;
4) Add the cond milk;
5) Pour over chocolate and buerre mix to remove air bubbles;
Use at 35C/95F.

The marbling effect is achieved by pouring different color glazes together over the cake.
