The Avengers have assembled once more. This time as an awesome and complicated tea cake courtesy of Nerdache Cakes in New Jersey. This edible Marvel masterpiece is adorable and extremely elaborate. It was made for the owner’s niece!
Now before you get all mad at me for saying that I was kind of disappointed in the big noisy mess that was The Avengers, I must mention that I was battling the brain-bending side effects of a new medicine, combined with the headache inducing 3D glasses and an IMAX screen on the day I saw it, so maybe I need to give it another chance when it comes out on Blu-ray.

I don’t think I need to elaborate on this one. It’s just an Xbox 360 with a case expertly modded with an Iron Man theme. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to brace myself for the deluge of “Where do I get one?”
