March madness in our house involves two birthdays, each with a themed cake. The first, for our now-13-year-old, was based on the Myst island:
Everything is edible. It includes Twinkies, ice-cream cones, coffee cakes, marshmallows (regular and mini), pretzels (stix and rods), Hershey bars, Ring Dings, Twizzlers, those rectangular wafer cookies, and my new favorite building material, Little Debbie Fudge Brownies. It’s all topped off with plenty of frosting, in brown, white, blue, and two greens.
Here’s the original source material, screen shots from Myst game:

If you liked this, you may also want to look at past cakes: race car, Homestar, Superman, Pirate ship, and Kirby.
I have Asperger's Syndrome and noted the autism entries on your blog... I'll be reading them with great interest.

My mom made some very creative cakes for me as well. She made a 3-part hamburger cake for me with red and yellow icing for condiments, and a pizza cake for my sister with sugared gummi fruits for toppings that looked like pepperoni and peppers.
So, props to Ned, Susan, and my mom!

Even if they modernize the content for the movie or series, people will possibly want to explore the source material and ingest the inherent sexism therein. It must end. As my favorite line in the new Star Wars movies suggests, we must "let the past die. Kill it, if you have to."
Please note, I am not the author of the petition, but I do believe in it.
