16 Unique Coffee Mugs You Need In Your Mornings

The best part of waking up is coffee. Maybe not any coffee, and probably not Folgers, but this nectar of the gods is the life force for many of us. Why bother throwing such an important beverage into a boring mug? We brewed up a few mugs to fix that.

1. Lego My Coffee

ScreenCap1

Because Lego’s are the foundation of any nutritious breakfast.

2. Taste The Rainbow

SC1

Drink coffee and poke your enemies eyes out. Plus rainbows. So, basically all your favorite things.

3. Pipe Dreams

SC2

Perfect for mushroom tea.

4. Schroedinger’s Coffee

SC3

The only problem is that the coffee is both cold and hot until you sip it…

5. Who Needs A Plastic Surgeon?

SC4

My other nose is a fucking disaster.

6. C Is For Coffee

SC5

Addictive behavior is hilarious…

7. The Call of Coffee

SC7

Cthulhu Coffee: Perfect for kicking your morning into beast mode.

8. Put Your Donuts Where Your Mouth Is

SC8

Because 8 AM is simply too early to talk your way into a sexual harassment suit.

9. Flush Once For Caffeine

SC9

Get it? Cause I have a potty mouth? And everything else about me is horrible.

10. Quali-tea

SC10

 

Mostly confusing, because this is a coffee mug with a tea pun on it. And vestigial arms.

11. The Sunday Morning Mug

A classy way of saying what we could already smell coming out of your pores, Linda.

12. Early Morning Accomplishment

SC92

Wanted a medal, got a mug :\

13. All The Rage

SC93

He’ll probably be really angry when he actually tries to crumple it.

14. Emotional Little Sith

I’m guessing you take it… dark?

15. I Can See Clearly Now

The only time it’s acceptable for your lens to be steamy.

16.  Snooze Button Managed

Make Your Own Lightsaber Wedding Cake Cutter

lightsaberknife1

So you’ve managed to find someone as adorably geeky as yourself, congratulations. But as any geek knows, it isn’t merely enough to have Star Wars-themed wedding invitations. Disney Princess bridesmaids’ dresses are childplay. A TARDIS cake? Pah, amateur!

What you two need to really show your devotion (to each other and to your fandoms) is a cake knife with a lightsaber hilt. Obviously.

Three years ago, a Mr. Luke and Mrs. Suzanne had a fun little wedding at the Jim Henson studios in Hollywood. Along with the requisite Muppets, Luke injected some extra play into the nuptials by transforming the cake knife into Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber. Detailed instructions can be found over at Offbeat Bride.

But don’t feel limited by your utter lack of Star Wars knowledge (millennials and younger, I’m looking at you). With a little glue and pixie dust, you can probably turn your trusty shiv into Harry’s wand, a PS4 controller, a Star Trek phaser. I’m for one am very much looking forward to chopping sh*t up with a Sonic Screwdriver. Ah, love.

Please Refrain from Instagramming This Instagram Cake [Video]

instagram-cake

Excuse me waiter, there’s some Instagram in my cake.

This is possibly the most creative and labor intensive dessert I’ve seen. This cake is made from rainbow jelly, chocolate mousse, cake and chocolate glaze all carefully layered together to recreate everyone’s favorite social media obsession. The whole process takes a few hours since you’re constantly building, freezing and piecing things together but the final product is sure to surprise your party guests.

The good news is that if you actually pull this thing off it would make a pretty sweet Instagram post.

Check out the tutorial below or if you want the recipe, head on over to How To Cook That.

Here’s How to Make a Flaming Goblet of Fire Cocktail

goblet of fire drink harry potter

This Goblet of Fire drink recipe from Little Pink Blog won’t get you into the TriWizard Tournament but it will probably make you the most popular kid in Gryffindor.

Putting this drink together is like brewing yourself a potion, just without Snape giving you his judge-y looks. Once your concoction is on fire, the addition of the cinnamon will cause some sparks, but alas, don’t expect your name to come shooting out. And to think, you didn’t even have to rescue a Dragon’s Egg or traverse a dangerous maze to partake in this Goblet of Fire. Take that Harry.

Start Your Morning with the Force: Nestlé Star Wars Coffee Machines

These limited edition Nestle Star Wars coffee machines will ensure that the force is with you every morning. There are two editions, so you can get your Light Side or Your Dark side on, depending on your preference. The C-3PO version comes with the saying “THANK THE MAKER” on the side while the Darth Vader variety reads “THE FORCE IS STRONG WITH THIS ONE.” Ha. We see what you did there, Nestlé. And we like it.

The catch? The 5,000 units in existence planned for release only in Japan and are most likely all sold out by the time you’re reading this. Hopefully, they’ll be circulating eBay soon enough. Insert obligatory rant about Japan’s monopoly on cool and geeky products.

Each kit is priced at approximately $120, complete with the featured mug and a light saber stirrer.
