Today is an awesome day. Remember that mouthwatering pizza cake by Boston Pizza that we posted about a few months ago? Of course you do, we’ve all been dreaming about it ever since. Well there must be a fairy godmother over at Pillsbury, because they just made our overindulgent dream come true. Not only did they create their own scrumptious pepperoni pizza cake, they published an easy recipe so we can all go home and make pizza cakes of our own, the sooner the better.

Today the Departments of Awesome Parenting and Impossible Cuteness met to squee in delight at the outrageously adorable and elaborate charaben (character bento) lunches created by Li Ming, Singapore-based mother of two lucky sons. Ming began making these exceptional midday meals when her eldest son, 10-year-old Ivan Tey, was having a hard time adjusting to starting school:
'He refused to go to school and cried everyday - he was not used to the longer hours and missed me. I packed him charabens with written messages to make him feel more secure.”
It wasn’t long before her youngest son, Lucas Tey, started asking for special lunches too:
"Lucas saw one of them and asked for one to take to kindergarten and he really enjoyed the attention he got from his teachers and friends. I ended up decorating either their lunch or dinner instead and they eat those at home. They still enjoy looking at what I make and will give comments at times on how I can position certain parts."
Li Ming has now made over 100 delightful charaben meals for her sons. Sometimes her inspiration comes from everyday life and other times share uses ideas suggested by her kids.

May the Force be with you and may your cookie jar never be empty.
These awesome Star Wars-themed sugar cookies were made by Jedi Master Baker Jessica at Compassionate Cake, a vegan bakery located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. All of the geektastic cookie decorating is done by hand and possibly some Jedi mind trickery as well.
We still haven’t fully recovered from discovering the edible monstrosity that is the World’s Largest Gummy Worm, and yet the nightmarishly awesome potential of gummy candy continues to unleash even bigger creatures. Behold the seemingly endless sugar rush that is that the 26-Pound Edible Gummy Party Python made by Vat19.
"Tipping the scales at nearly 27 pounds, this huge candy snake packs over 36,000 calories into its nearly 8-foot-long frame. Boasting incredible details including intricate eyes, extensive and blended coloring, ridged coils, and thousands of individually carved scales, the Party Python will steal the show at any party."
Should you decide to splurge on this sweet monster serpent, we suggest buying some gummy rats as well to see if the Party Python with eat them before you eat it.
Available here in Blue Raspberry & Green Apple or Red Cherry & Blue Raspberry flavor combinations.
Smart people have all kinds of delicious stuff in their heads! Well, now you can eat it. You can get Edgar Allan Poe, William Shakespeare or Sigmund Freud candy in a book-shaped package. Each wrapper has the face of the genius on it. Shakespeare tastes like lemon, Poe is grape and for some mysterious reason Freud reminded us of bananas. Food for thinkers! Looks great on a bookshelf.
Today the Department of Impossible Cuteness invites you to play another round of “Eat it or keep it as a pet?” RocketNews24 assembled an overwhelmingly kawaii collection of hard-boiled eggs that’ve been altered and decorated to turn them into all sorts of cute bento creatures, from chickens, bunnies, cows and pandas to Pikachu and a wee baby seal.
Could you conquer the debilitating cuteness of these enhanced eggs in order to enjoy them as lunch?

Behold the sweet, sticky, deep-fried awesomeness that is the Double Hundred Dozen, for those days when a single dozen doughnuts simply won’t suffice. It’s the the biggest box of doughnuts we’ve ever seen and it was just unveiled in London by Krispy Kreme UK for their new Occasions offering.
The 3.5 m (~11.5 ft) long box contains 2,400 Original Glazed doughnuts. It took eight staff members worked together to fill the box and load it onto the delivery truck. The company is currently holding a contest to celebrate the launch of their large-scale delivery service. One lucky business will win a Double Hundred Dozen. We hope the winners aren’t messy eaters, because that’s how you get ants.
And please, should you dare to order a Double Hundred Dozen doughnuts, please make sure you brush and floss after feasting on all that sugary fried dough.
Put the needle on the record, play the record, then eat the record! German inventor Peter Lardong creates perfectly playable and completely delicious chocolate records in his home in Berlin. He experimented with making records using ice cream, beer, cola, sausages, cheese and butter before hitting upon his special chocolate mixture of cocoa, cocoa butter and lecithin. Lardong makes his mouthwatering records by pouring and smoothing melted chocolate onto silicone molds of his favorite records. After the chocolate sets and cools in the firdge, the record is removed from the mold, ready to be played and eaten.
Each of Lardong’s edible chocolate records costs approximately $6 and can be successfully played on a standard record player up to 12 times. That is, assuming you can hold out that long before giving into the temptation to chomp on a chocolate record. Some records are meant to be broken, these records are made to be played and then eaten.

"The world is so full of a number of things,
I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings.”
Because who doesn’t love anthropomorphic food and animal friends? Our friend and awesome artist Cuddly Rigor Mortis (previously featured here) just opened a solo exhibition of new paintings, entitled Happy As Kings, at Gallery Nucleus. The show runs through September 21, 2014.
Inspired by the Robert Louis Stevenson poem, “Happy Thought”, the artist introduces us to a group of gleeful royals that find happiness in the ordinary yet wonderful things in life.
Don’t worry if you can’t make it down in person, click here to view the exhibition online and even purchase originals and prints.

Today the Department of Awesome Parenting is sitting at the breakfast table eagerly hoping someone will make an awesome batch of animal pancakes just for them. Redditor ptgkbgte recently shared these photos of amazing pancakes that his friend (name currently unknown) makes for his own lucky kids using pancake batter dyed with food coloring.
We’re hoping more information surfaces about this creative dad and how he makes these fantastic flapjacks. If you happen to know who he is and/or if he has his own website, please let us know.
