The post after the fold will have several images, so slow connections beware.
Even though I spent my high school years working at a truck stop kitchen, I don't really consider myself much of a cook, and even less of a baker. Thus, cake decorating is an art lost on me (though I enjoy seeing the results and eating them). I've seen some of the horror stories about decorators who screwed up, or customers who weren't clear enough (bakers, like plaque makers, gravestone engravers, and Ron Burgundy are very literal and will follow the provided text exactly, typos and all), such as a blog post where a lady gives the baker a thumb drive with a digital image she wants put on the cake, and the cake provided depicts the thumb drive itself. Here are some of the best of the geeky cakes on Dorkly:
I know now why you cry, one pastry to rule them all, and a birthday surprise your kid will never forget.

Buzzfeed has a list of 45 McDonald's foods that should be available in the US. They seem weighted towards Japan, though I don't know if that's because Japan varies from the American menu more, or if they just do it more successfully. The Mega Tomago makes me think the latter (and they call Americans fat... huh!). Personally, I'd love to try the Chocolate and Orange Pie, Prosperity Burger, McRice Burger, Seaweed Shaker Fries, McKebab, Bacon Roll, and McBeer. The only one that struck me as really odd was the Gazpacho... who gets soup at a fast food joint?
The GeekDump doesn't often touch on film, though that's as much a staple of nerdom as vidja gamez. The nice thing about geek movies that they cross genres (though are heavily weighted toward animation and sci-fi). If you've ever considered writing a script or producing one, check out these flowcharts on the cinematic process.
