What happens when a nerdy guy and a geeky girl get married? Well, they nerd up their wedding with a themed wedding cake!

Whether the couple shares a passion for computer science, video games, Star Wars, Star Trek, or role-playing games such as Dungeons & Dragons, incorporating a nerdy theme in a wedding cake is obviously a blast!

Of course, nerds have birthdays, too. In fact, there is probably a higher chance that you'll be looking at nerdy cakes for a birthday than a wedding. (Okay, I admit, that wasn't nice.) But hey, you should have more birthdays in your life than weddings, right?

This is a collection of some of the geekiest cakes that have ever been made. The cakes span across a number of nerdy niches.

Some of these cakes are REALLY creative and some just make you wonder why. Either way, these cakes are a nerd's dream come true. I just hope no-one is dressed as an Ewok or as Darth Vader at any of these parties!

This cake is pulled right from the XKCD comic: Useless. While this particular comic does not contain XKCD stick figures, this cake makes wonderful use of XKCD figures to create a perfect cake topper. Pretty awesome, if you ask me!

Scrabble wedding cake
Scrabble wedding cake

Scrabble fans will love this sheet cake designed to look just like a Scrabble game board. The wording appears to contain the date of the wedding, the name Charlie (perhaps the groom?), and something about sharing coffee at Starbucks.

This cake is a really creative way to convey a message while making adding a lot of fun into the mix! I'd like to see someone do this with Boggle!

Angry birds cake
Angry birds cake

This Angry Birds cake is just plain awesome! The cake is beautifully designed and everything looks 100% perfect. It's not like some of those Mickey Mouse cakes that you see where Mickey looks creepy and has a weird shaped head. You've gotta' love this one!

AT-AT Star Wars cake
AT-AT Star Wars cake

An AT-AT wedding cake, complete with matching Ewok cupcakes, is a dream come true for anyone who is a Star Wars fan!

Rubik's cube cake
Rubik's cube cake

A Rubik's cube cake is perfect for any puzzle-loving geeks! The colors on the cube are perfect. I'm sort of wondering if the colors on the cake are in an order that would allow it to be solved if it were a real cube... Nobody likes a sticker-peeler!

Katamari damacy cake
Katamari damacy cake

This Katamari cake is amazing! I would be tempted to design it in such a way that there was something stuck to it, but would probably go over-board! Pretty good idea to keep it simple so people know right away that it's from Katamari and not just a ball made up of random things!

Star Wars Hoth cake
Star Wars Hoth cake

Wow, part of me kind of hopes that this wasn't actually used for a wedding. While it's a cool idea to have a cake that features Luke Skywalker keeping warm in the guts of a dead Tauntaun, it's kind of morbid and really just kind of gross. Tons of points for creativity, though!

Circuit board cake
Circuit board cake

Awesome usage of wafer cookies and rolos to create an Intel motherboard cake. It really just doesn't get much nerdier than this!

Love it! A wedding cake for programmers.
Love it! A wedding cake for programmers.

Okay, maybe it does get nerdier than the motherboard cake! This pseudo-code cake is absolutely fantastic and the equally nerdy cupcakes on the lower tiers are perfect. Whoever designed this cake deserves the Turing Award!

Portal wedding cake
Portal wedding cake

I'm not sure what's with the anime figurines in the front, but a companion cube wedding cake from Portal!?!?! Awesome! I would LOVE to have this cake! I would feel so guilty eating it, though. Heck, I'd feel guilty putting the cake in the oven -- how could you subject a companion cube to such heat?!

Super Mario wedding cake
Super Mario wedding cake

This Mario wedding cake is pretty elaborate! You can tell a lot of effort was put into the design of the cake. I'm not sure which tier I like the best!

This is an awesome cake for gamers
This is an awesome cake for gamers

Gamer geeks? This couple DEFINITELY looks like they own at least *ahem* a few game systems. Miniature fondant game controllers add a fun touch to this wedding cake! I think I love the video game themed cakes the best.

Pixelated Mario cupcake = really creative idea
Pixelated Mario cupcake = really creative idea

All these cupcakes put together form the pixelated Mario character (old school NES stuff.) Simply genius! The one downfall to this style is that latecomers to the party will wonder what the design is supposed to be (as many cupcakes will already have been consumed.) Still fantastic and perfect for any gamer couple.

Star Trek cake
Star Trek cake

This is an awesome cake! The only thing nerdier than a Star Trek cake is the designing of said cake. I'm talking getting ship schematics here, studying what's on the panels, etc. I'd like to see a Next Generation version!

Android wedding cake
Android wedding cake

What happens when an Android fanboy meets an Android fangirl? This cake. Hilarious, beautiful, amazing, totally nerdy, and romantic all in one.

AT-AT Walker cake
AT-AT Walker cake

This is one of my personal favorites. This Star Wars Imperial AT-AT Walker cake reminds me of playing Shadows of the Empire on the N64 (and battling with the horrible camera angle change when you have to knock these guys down.) This cake is absolutely perfectly done. The designer is a really good artist, everything is spot on.

Super Mario wedding cake
Super Mario wedding cake

This cake is a rendition of the first level of NES Super Mario Brothers. If you look closely at the bottom tier, you can see Goombas... Ah, love is not without obstacles.

I really love this Nintendo (NES) cake!
I really love this Nintendo (NES) cake!

It's an NES! It'd be awesome if you could peel up some of the fondant to reveal where you insert the cartridge. However, you probably get a lot of people blowing into the cake... and that would be no good.

Star Wars Jabba cake.
Star Wars Jabba cake.

This cake looks disgusting, I'll be honest. I suppose there's a reason for that. It appears this Jabba the Hutt cake is meant for someone's 30th birthday. The only thing more disgusting than going over the hill is Jabba. Hopefully the cake tasted good. :P

iPhone apps cupcakes = so cute!
iPhone apps cupcakes = so cute!

These iPhone apps mini cupcakes are adorable. It took me a bit to figure out what the blue squiggle one on the left is supposed to be. (I had to look at my phone. It's the stocks app.)

Bejeweled cake
Bejeweled cake

If you're addicted to Bejeweled or have at least played it (and suffered short-term addiction) then you'll appreciate this cake. I can't stop looking for matches on this one. :P

QR code cake
QR code cake

A QR code cake is a great way to get your message across. This QR cake takes you to the Flickr page for the artist who made this cake. Try it out!

Goomba Mario Bros cake.
Goomba Mario Bros cake.

The Goomba on this Mario cake is perfect and actually kind of adorable. I love this cake. Anyone else think the Goomba is cute? I'd like to have one for an evil pet.

Firefox cake
Firefox cake

This Mozilla cake is a really beautiful fondant design. I can imagine it would be awkward to cut and eat (it's essentially a giant ball of cake with probably a thin layer of fondant.) Really cool, nevertheless!

R2-D2 cake
R2-D2 cake

Star Wars fans are sure to love this R2-D2 cake. I'd feel guilty cutting into this one. It would be that kind of cake I would keep in my kitchen for a really long time and never eat because of inanimate object attachment. Then the frosting would get really hard and old. A friend would probably have to toss it out for me. It'd be something like out of Castaway. Okay, not really, but it is an awesome cake.

iPhone cake
iPhone cake

This is another great iPhone cake, but instead of just little apps, it's the entire iPhone. I love it! One question, though. What kind of jerk is texting at 6AM?

Lord of the Rings cake
Lord of the Rings cake

One ring to rule them all. Now that's kind of a dark sentiment for a wedding, but hilarious and awesome too. I wonder how they got this cake to be so shiny. "Shiny" is kind of hard to do, from what I understand, when it comes to cake decorating (unless it's inedible.) Seriously great cake!

Lord of the Rings cake
Lord of the Rings cake

Another beautiful Lord of the Rings Cake. This one is a genius way to incorporate a LOTR theme into a tiered cake.

eBay cake
eBay cake

This is more than likely not a birthday or wedding cake (unless you're an obsessed power seller), but I had to include this cake because of its general awesomeness. This eBay cake and matching cupcakes look really tasty!

Zelda Windwaker cake
Zelda Windwaker cake

This cake featuring Link and Tetra from Gamecube's Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is absolutely beautifully sculpted. It's seriously better than in-game. Real life has much better graphics than Nintendo.

Gingerbread motherboard
Gingerbread motherboard

This motherboard isn't really a cake, it's more of a gingerbread um... non-house. It's so awesome, though. The fan alone is stellar. It's probably better than the fan in my computer. If someone made this for me, I probably wouldn't have the heart to eat it.

Magic: The Gathering cake
Magic: The Gathering cake

This Magic the Gathering deck cake would be perfect for a birthday. It gives me bad memories of rage quitting after losing against an unfairly made deck (printed cards) full of squirrels. :P

Apple cake
Apple cake

I love this Apple logo birthday cake, especially since the logo looks like it's made from that kind of clear frosting they use sometimes on kids birthday cakes... also known as "the good frosting."

World of Warcraft (Orgrimmar auction house) cake
World of Warcraft (Orgrimmar auction house) cake

Uber nerds from the horde side in World of Warcraft will love this Orgrimmar auction house cake. I spent many an hour in this auction house, peddling my wares before switching to the alliance side.

The fondant on these Pac-Man cupcakes is perfect. If you're looking to turn these cupcakes into something a little more suited for couples adding Ms. Pac-Man will definitely do the trick!

        It was enjoyable to look at all the cake photos. It was the Game of Thrones cake that drew my attention to your post. It had a kind of steampunk feel to it.

        It's hard to choose a standout cake there. Really, each of the cakes are very interesting and beautiful -- well except for that gross one with Luke Skywalker. If a girl and groom are both Fandroids then they shouldn't think long and hard for their wedding cake. The motherboard cakes are really interesting too, especially that one which uses wafers.

        Up, etc. and shared. :)

        These cakes are great! I had an Alien cake made for my husband as a groom's cake. It was black and had two little aliens bursting out the top. One wore a black top hat and tux and the other a veil :-) No one else at the wedding knew what was going on, but he loved it. Really fun topic! Nice to see we're not alone!

        @TW3000.i.s.

        I would recommend asking your local cake bakery. They PROBABLY won't be able to make something as cool as an R2D2 cake, BUT they can point you in the direction of someone who can.

        This is what I did to find a baker for my wedding cake since the only baker I found didn't seem to do anything particularly cool with fondant. Good luck!

        Is it bad if the theme song to Star Trek or the song for the Mario Brothers popped into my head when I was looking at these cakes? Coolness! It's equally bad, I'm sure, if I'm thinking that for the next cake I make, I want to try my hand at making Pac-Man cupcakes or Pi or a tricorder. Hahahaa. Great hub! Lots of fun!

Loving the Star Wars themed cakes, but also love the more 'simple' ones - the computer language made all romantic on a cake with cool geeky cupcakes. I also think the Rubiks Cube is great - I'd love to have a go at making that :)

        Amazing! I'd kill for the psuedo-code cake. I can't program at all, but my SO would love it.

        These are truly amazing - far too clever to eat. I think I would keep mine until it went furry!

        And for the first time I've learnt how to 'share' a hub ... how cool am I, dude (finally)!

        I love the XKCD cake and motherboard cupcake, but my favourite is by far the Minas Tirith layered cake - simply stunning!

        Wow, these cakes are impressive. The AT-AT was my favorite until I got down to the Lord of the Rings cake. I'm a much bigger nerd than my boyfriend, so these probably wouldn't work out for us! Plus, I'll be going the traditional cake route since I'm not a fan of fondant (and due to the expense). We already have a cake topper but it was too heavy...

        My favorite is the Firefox cake, it looks so real! Unfortunately it seems like most of these cakes are fondant- based, which my hubby explicitly nixed for our own wedding cake. However, I love these really funky ideas, they give me ideas to think about for future cakes. Thanks for sharing, this is an awesome hub!

        I enjoyed looking at them. I make cakes for a living and always enjoy looking at other cakes. The stuff that makes the fondant shiney is called pearl dust. love the pearl dust until it gets on your fingers, its so fine that it sticks to skin like crazy.
