Foods that geeks eat Some iPad thai, an 8-bit wine, and a Super Mario cake for dessert Nate Ralph August 25, 2010 PC World Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn How culinary-minded geeks express their tech enthusiasm 1. Food is great - necessary, even. But when was the last time your daily bread inspired any sort of awe? Why not liven up lunch time? Join us for a look at some sweets, snacks, and beverages with a decidedly nerdy take on the culinary arts. 2. iCakes Photo: Flickr user NickBilton Can't get enough of Apple? These iPhone cupcakes, courtesy of Nick and Danielle Bilton, just might do the trick. You can't make any phone calls on them, but you can hold them any way you'd like. 3. 8-Bit Vintners' Player 1 Photo: 8-Bit Vintners Geeks with a refined palate will appreciate Mike James's 8-Bit Vintners. Kicking things off is the inaugural Player 1 vintage, bottled in 2009 after having aged for 18 to 22 months. Aimed at budding wine aficionados, the wine has been sampled at geek gatherings such as the Penny Arcade Expo and the Child's Play charity auction. 4. Steve Jobs is served Photo: The Cooks' Den Here's an hors d'oeuvres plate that's fit for any fanboy luncheon. What better way to celebrate your love (or loathing) of Apple's iBaubles than by devouring Steve Jobs's head? (In mozzarella effigy, of course.) 5. Spellcasting Soda Photo: Jones Soda Fledgling geeks (or those who rolled low CON stats) might like this non-alcoholic treat: Spellcasting Soda, from Jones Soda. These Dungeons and Dragons-themed drinks should fit right in with a night of role playing. But beware: After a few bottles of 8-Bit Vintners' Player 1, the Potion of Healing won't work as advertised. 6. It's-a-Him! Photo: Delectable Designer Cakes Objet d'art? Sculpture? Sure. But cake? We're undecided as to whether taking a bite out of this sugary-sweet Mario facsimile would be a crime-or the perfect birthday treat. Alas, Delectable's designer cakes aren't available outside of Malaysia, but they could be worth the trip. 7. Tasty Controller Mods Photo: Diamonds for Dessert Gaming is a fun hobby, but it would be even more fun if we could somehow eat it. Enter controller cookies: They might not be usable, but they're much more delicious than your stock controller. The Diamonds for Dessert blog offers a nifty guide to making your own controller cookies from scratch, including stencils that you can print. 8. Jabba the Cake Photo: Flickr user icruise Jabba the Hutt: ruthless gangster, feared crime lord, and...tempting confection? Flickr user icruise's birthday cake pays homage to the notorious slug, and demands that we revisit the Star Wars saga with eyes wide open.
