The eagerly anticipated 50th anniversary of Doctor Who has turned this into a truly nerdtastic weekend. BBC America commissioned the Denville, New Jersey-based Pink Cake Box custom bakery to create this awesome cake in celebration of the special 50th anniversary episode, “The Day of the Doctor.”
An edible sculpture of Matt Smith, the eleventh incarnation of the Doctor, is dressed in his overcoat and his trademark bow tie, and wields his trusty sonic screwdriver. The Doctor stands beside the TARDIS, with one of its doors ajar allowing a tantalizing glimpse of the console room. The cake was vanilla with raspberry chambord buttercream. How the pastry chefs made it bigger on the inside, we’ll never know.

These two awesome Doctor Who-themed cakes were created by the Bleeding Heart Bakery in Chicago, IL. It took their crafty bakers 12 hours to create the Dalek cake. It looks so good, we don’t know whether to take a big bite or run for our lives.
We were sorry to discover that the bakery closed in the summer of 2012. Fortunately we can still check out many of their astonishingly creative and skillfully constructed cakes via their Flickr stream, including individual photo sets for the Dalek cake and the TARDIS cake.
Michelle of gnomeclothes created these awesome Doctor Who costumes with and for her Whovian daughters. One of them dressed as the Doctor emerging from a TARDIS while the other wore a spectacular Dalek Caan costume. The family spent three months working together on these geektastic ensembles.
Visit Costume Works for more photos and to read about how they did it.

Why not include a regeneration in your Doctor Who costume? Show up at the party as Dr. Coo, the Gallifreyan Time Pigeon. At some point in the evening, get yourself shot by a Dalek. Scream and run into your TARDIS (any nearby closet will work). When you come out, you will have changed your mask and become Dr. Pug! After all, sometimes things just get all timey-wimey-puggy-wuggy.

Google has been up to some awesome easter egg geekery with its maps service again. You may recall that last time they revealed that Google Maps now enables us to explore the magical wonders of Diagon Alley from the Harry Potter universe. This time they’ve devised some wonderfully “wibbly wobbly… time-y wimey… stuff.”
When you navigate to a certain location along Earl’s Court Road on the London map, the street view shows a police box on a nearby sidewalk. Look carefully and you’ll notice a pair of chevrons on the street pointing towards the callbox. Click on those and suddenly you’ll be transported… wait for it… inside a magnificently detailed TARDIS! There you’ll be able to explore a 360-degree view of the beautifully rendered interior of our favourite time machine.
In fact, rather than simply being able to look around from a fixed point, you can actually explore the interior of the TARDIS by walking up steps and viewing the entire chamber from its balcony area. All the while, the location description on the upper left hand corner of the Google Maps display will continue to read, simply, “Police Box, England, United Kingdom.”
We hope you’re all on summer vacation or have plenty of paid time off saved up because we keep finding fantastic new destinations for Geyser of Awesome field trips, like this awesome Doctor Who-themed corn maze.
Located in northern England in the Yorkshire countryside and created from over 1.5 million corn plants, the York Maze (or Maize-Maze) is roughly 300 meters long and takes an average of 1.5 hours to solve. It’s thought to be the biggest corn maze in the world and it’s theme changes from year to year.
This year’s Doctor Who maze features a giant Dalek as well as images of the first and current Doctor. There appear to be some actual Daleks lurking in the maze itself, so be on your guard. We’re guessing there aren’t any Dalek-proof stairs to use as an escape route. There’s also a TARDIS in there somewhere, which might be how Colin Baker, the 6th incarnation of The Doctor, was able to drop in for a visit.

Instructables user nonnef created this awesome TARDIS Transformer and a transforming K-9 companion. He began by constructing a model out of clay and then moved on to 3D modeling before creating the final piece using a Replicator2 3D printer.
"If you’re going to print one of these for yourself, be prepared for a very long print. [Nonnef] says the latest version took about 30 hours on his RepRap with a .35 mm nozzle. In the end nearly the entire Transformer came directly from a 3D printer, the only additional parts needed being a pen spring and a small screw. Paint is, of course, optional.”
TARIDIS vs Dalek Salt and Pepper Shakers - If you’re a real Doctor Who fan, you won’t be able to resist this set of salt and pepper shakers. Otherwise, how will you be able to pretend every meal is an episode of your favorite show? The Daleks have invaded planet Brunchifrey and suddenly the TARDIS appears. The rest of the story is up to you, but we’re going to bet the solution somehow involves mashed potatoes and reversing the polarity of the neutron flow.
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.
