We made it. It’s Friday. Congratulations.
And today is a very special Friday, indeed. Today is Friday, May 3rd, and later today Robert Downey, Jr. will be parading around on a large (IMAX-sized) screen in front of my hubcap-sized eyes.
I have a tendency to get really exited about things that are comic books. Adding Tony Stark aka my spirit animal to the mix just makes the combo that much more flail-inducing. So to honor Tony, have five comic hero based things that are also food (..or drink) related!
#5: These Cupcakes.
I made these while blogging in another life, and they’re still high on my list of favorite bakes for the past year. Basically: deliciously magical geeky glory.
Plus, fondant capes. Fondant capes for victory.
#4: These Cookie Cutters.
I’m really, really incredibly sad that you can’t get either of these sets anymore. And I’m even sadder that I didn’t get them before they went the way of the dodo.
Curse you, Williams-Sonoma; you make so many great things, yet cause me so much pain.
#3: This Cookbook.
If you ever kill your boredom with Cracked, you might have already heard about the Mighty Marvel Super Heroes Cookbook. Trust me, if I could get this sucker for less than seventy bucks, it would be sitting in a place of honor on my cookbook shelf.
(Apparently, DC was not to be outdone.)
#2. These drinks.
Yeah, these are happening. All of them. Rawr. Tony is clearly not listed because he’s just straight whiskey, obviously. And Hawkeye wasn’t cool enough for his own drink.
#1. THIS LUNCHBOX
Is it a food? No. Do I care? Also no. I am a sucker for capes in places that capes don’t truly belong. ThinkGeek sells them, but they’re understandably sold out right now.
That’s all she wrote! Have a lovely Friday, everyone. Maybe treat yo’self to dinner and a movie?
