When you hear the words “pop culture cookies,” you probably picture Captain Phasma or Haunted Mansion-shaped treats, correct? And granted, there’s nothing wrong with those — we’re big fans of nerdy themed food here at Nerdist. But the artisanal bakery Sweetly Brooklyn is here to stretch our imagination even further, with cakes and cookies inspired by everyday life. You know, like riding the Metro, eating fries with messy ketchup, playing video games and swimming with sharks, Jaws style.
Did you see the taco cupcakes above? Yeah, that’s the level of creativity we’re dealing with here. All these goodies are made from scratch, and they look like brilliant works of art.
Have gaming controllers ever looked this good? They even have that characteristic sheer shine to them, amazing!
Check out the gallery below to tease your taste buds to the limit, then head to Sweetly Brooklyn’s site to make an order for your next holiday party. Your guests will love you forever! Remember, you don’t really need an excuse to eat cake. You can order them for any old day, we won’t tell anyone.
On their site, you can also view Sweetly Brooklyn’s sugar cookies that look like lead pencils, Dracula, surfboards, footballs and more. The possibilities are endless when it comes to baking, apparently.
What do you think of Sweetly Brooklyn’s treats? Are you going to try some of these nostalgic slices of heaven? Reach out to me on Twitter, or sound off in the comments below.
