Every year it seems that holiday decorations hit the stores earlier and earlier. The remaining bags of Halloween candy have barely been put on sale before artificial trees and shiny garlands are filling the next aisle over. Annabel de Vetten of the Conjurer’s Kitchen (previously featured here) created a deliciously macabre batch of Conjoined Gingerdead Men cookies that feel like a wickedly festive bridge between two otherwise disparate holiday seasons.
It’s Weird and Wonderful Holiday Treat Day on Geyser of Awesome!
Wendy Thomas, New Hampshire-based journalist and thrift maven, made this adorably amusing batch of sandwich cookies, called Mammo-grahams, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and because, “as a writer, I can appreciate a really good play on words and this was one.” We can’t help but agree.
"In a few hours it’s gonna burst through your ribcage, and you’re gonna die. Any questions?"
That is, unless you can eat it first. These terrifyingly awesome Alien Macarons are the work of Lou Lou P’s Delights, Leeds, England-based creators of bespoke cakes and other forms of edible artistry. They come in equally horrifying yet tantalizing Facehuuger, Chestburster, and fully grown Xenomorph varieties. We’ll take one of each please.
Illustrator and copywriter Alexander Barrett created each of these awesome sculptures using Oreo cookies or sometimes just the creme filling. The project began when he was asked by the Wieden + Kennedy ad agency to participate in Oreo’s Super Bowl Instagram Experience. Alexander in turn asked his fans to send him photos to use as inspiration.
He says, “They asked if I was a sculptor. I lied” and furthers, “At no point in those 72 hours did I know what I was doing. And it was a blast.”

Wesley Klein is a culinary mad scientist with two passions: Bacon and Sweets. (A madman after our own hearts.) Wesley took his two gustatory loves and married them by creating an awesome shop called… wait for it… the Baconery.
Based in New York, the Baconery creates and sells some of the most mouthwatering bacon-centric sweets we’ve ever seen. Decadent rashers of bacon are dipped in various chocolates and generously covered with nuts, colourful sprinkles, more bacon, or even 24k edible gold flakes. Then, beyond the strips of bacon themselves, there are all the bacon-infused cookies, brownies, cakes, pretzels, and caramels. And, lest your dog(s) feel left out, they even make Pig-Shaped Bacon Dog Biscuits.
Don’t worry if you can’t head off to New York right away. The Baconery webstore is open 24 hours a day.

Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) has done it again. It’s another awesome exercise in overindulgence, this time in the form of a mouthwatering ice cream cone made out of a large chocolate chip cookie. WANT!

As the creators of an entire Bacon Gift Shop, you know we love bacon more than almost anything. So it should come as no surprised that we were delighted and suddenly hungry when we first set eyes on these beautiful sugar cookies.
Jennifer of Not Your Mamma’s Cookie created the recipe for these awesomely enticing Bacon Cookies. They look so much like mouthwatering rashers of bacon! They’ve even got that distinct wavy form that all truly tasty bacon has as well as blackened peppery edges.
So how did she do it? Click here for the recipe and instructions.
Monica Holbert, aka Cookie Cowgirl, made these fantastic Hitchhiker’s Guide cookies back in January for a lucky friend’s 42nd birthday. Because, as we all know, 42 is the answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
March 11th would have been the 61st birthday of the late and incalculably awesome writer Douglas Adams, author of the beloved Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series.
Happy Birthday Douglas. You’re sorely missed. Thanks for all the fish.
We absolutely love these awesome Doctor Who cookies! They’re the work of The Cookie Cowgirl. Each of the eleven Doctors has been depicted with remarkable detail. There’s also a fantastic Dalek, the TARDIS, one of the Cybermen, three Sonic Screwdrivers, and even a haunting silhouette of one of the Weeping Angels. These treats might just be too awesome to eat. Maybe.
