One sign of genius is taking something that already seems perfect and making it even better. Milk and cookies are a match made in heaven, but Dominique Ansel, New York City-based pastry chef and creator of the legendary cronut, elevated the classic pairing to mouthwatering awesomeness when he created these Chocolate Chip Cookie Milk Shots.
They’re shots of cold milk served in freshly baked chocolate chip cookie glasses and we can’t stop staring at them. If you’re going to be at SXSW 2014, you’ll have the opportunity to try them on Sunday, March 9th during an Allison+Partners-sponsored event.
Considering the epic lines that still form in New York for cronuts, let’s hope Cookie Monster isn’t attending SXSW. If he’s there, no one else stands a chance of getting any Milk and Cookie Shots for themselves.
Mike from Semi Sweet (previously featured here) created these awesome Star Trek: The Next Generation-themed cookies as a geektastic Valentine’s Day treat. He even decorated one of the heart-shaped Starfleet uniform cookies with Worf’s Klingon baldric.

Just in time for Christmas, Jason Freeny (previously featured here) has turned his artistic dissection skills from toys back to sweets to reveal the internal anatomy of a gingerbread man with an awesome new anatomy schematic print entitled Gingerbread Man Dissected.

Rebecca The Cookie Architect and 29 fellow cookie bakers collaborated on this awesome Gingerbread House of Cards. Inspire by architects Charles and Ray Eames’ House of Cards Game, Rebecca created gingerbread card pieces and mailed one to each participating cookie baker with instructions to decorate both sides however they pleased while sticking to a holiday-related theme. The completed pieces were sent back to Rebecca who then assembled the edible masterpiece.
We included a few other favourite gingerbread card pieces here, but you can see them all if you visit The Cookie Architect’s Facebook album.

"The Death Star, a symbol of the greatest evil, built by hearts of cake that is said to make the human kind. It took 12 people to build Love Star out of about 1,200 cookies. It took friendship, cooperation and sense of purpose. The project is seen as a metaphor in the challenge to all the world’s people must practice love for each other to maintain and build up our planet."

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.
