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!
Click here to read about the trial and error process that led to the successful creation of this amazing treat so that you might go make one for yourself or, if you’re feeling generous, some other lucky person.
Jessie Oleson, our favourite Dessert Detective and maven of sweetness otherwise known as Cakespy (previously featured here), has outdone herself once again. This ooey-gooey creation is a Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg.
A traditional Scotch Egg is a savoury treat consisting of a hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage meat, coated in breadcrumbs and deep-fried. The Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg, while no healthier, is all about sweetness:
“The Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg is coated with a thick cocoa-kissed batter, then coated in cookie crumbs and deep-fried. When eaten warm, the taste calls to mind that of a deep-fried candy bars that one can find at state fairs. Though in my opinion, these have slightly more complex flavor thanks to the cocoa in the batter and the vanilla cookie crumbs. Speaking of the crumbs, they also give the treat a pleasing crunch, which acts as a nice texture contrast to the cakey batter and soft, gooey chocolate and sugar-filled interior.”
Looking at these photos makes our teeth hurt and our stomachs rumble. Oh sweet Cadbury Creme Eggs, how we’ll miss you once you’re gone for the year.

Behold the glorious spectacle of Charles Phoenix and his Astro Easter Tree of Peeps, ”a styrofoam tree covered in tin foil and populated with colorful marshmallow Peeps. It’s the Easter version of his Astro Weenie Christmas Tree.”

It’s Awesome Easter Preparation Day on Geyser of Awesome!
We love this awesome Jawa birthday cake. It was made by Fat Tony 1138’s’s wife for their friends’ daughter’s 5th birthday. The Jawa is made of chocolate cake and chocolate fondant and the eyes are mini party light LEDs from a craft store. We’re wondering, if you have a Jawa cake but don’t eat it, will it scamper off in search of other desserts to offer for sale or trade?
Are you ready for an awesomely sweet treat? (The correct response is: “Always!”)
This awesome Oreogami Oreo animation video was made by Kelly Cheatle of Crafty B and her creative partner Larry Moss. Turning yummy Oreo cookies into art is pretty awesome, but animating your cookie art is super awesome. We hope Kelly and Larry rewarded themselves for this delicious accomplishment by eating their art.
Popsicles are delicious treats, sometimes even on a cold winter’s day. But the trick is to eat them before they melt. Argentinian artist Luciana Rondolini creates the awesome popsicles you see here as art pieces entitled Calamidad cósmica (Cosmic Calamity). The enormous popsicles gradually melt while on display to serve as sweet reminders that time is fleeting and eventually everything disintegrates.
Check out these fantastic Death Star Lollipops! There’s no need mess about with shield generators on Endor and sending a Rebel fleet into the Death Star when you can just pop it into your mouth and destroy it yourself. Yum!
These geeky treats are made by Priscilla in Salt Lake City, Utah, who custom-makes all sorts of seriously awesome suckers and sells them through her Etsy shop, designer lollipop. Be sure to visit her store to check out the rest of her tasty creations.
