Super Mario Kart Cake - by letthemeatcake
For flickr user M.A.L.’s wedding, this special gaming cake is 100% edible. The planet design is inspired by Super Mario Galaxy and features a Rainbow Road track (which Luigi is racing on) wrapped around it. The interior is filled with bittersweet chocolate ganache, chocolate buttercream, and chocolate mousse. See the entire set here. Rainbow Road is where cakes go to die in my mouth.
Eye of Horus House
Designed by Luis de Garrdio for Naomi Campbell, this 25-room domed house on the Isla Playa de Cleopatra in Turkey is completely energy and water self-sufficient. A good place to hang out and swear fealty to the Egyptian gods when they eventually returns to Earth.
Well, that’s a good way to freak out the aliens.
Have you ever stopped to wonder where the image was taken, or who took it? In fact, the image is so crisp you might have assumed it wasn’t real at all.
The man behind the camera is American photographer Charles O’Rear. Don’t let his name fool you into thinking that the photo was in fact taken in Ireland. Bliss, as it turns out, is in California. In Sonoma County to be exact.
The photo was taken in 1996, years before Windows XP launched, and before the area was converted into a vineyard.
