I love baking, and besides tasting great, sugar cookies are fun to decorate and shape into almost anything you can imagine. Why not get a group of your friends together for a night of geeky cookie baking? Here's a little inspiration to start you off with.

Controller Cookies

No favorites here! Every gamer gets a cookie from Not So Humble Pie [1]'s recipe.

Pac-Man Cookies

You can take the easy route and use these Pac-Man cookie cutters [6] or get inventive like Flickr user betsyweber [7] did. She used a tulip cookie cutter for the ghosts and a round cookie cutter for the Pac Man cookie with just a few modifications.

Star Wars Vehicle Cookies

This Star Wars cookie cutter set [8]($20) has everything you need to make Rebel and Imperial starships plus the Death Star.

Science Lab Cookies

A test tube, atom, flask, and beaker — go chemistry crazy with this Science Lab cookie cutter set [9] ($15).

Nintendo Star Cookies

Flickr user stoychy [10] made these sweet stars for her fanboy boyfriend.

Mario Head Cookie

If baking isn't your thing, buy this Mario Head cookie [11] ($6) from Ali's Sweet Treats.

Star Wars Cookie Set

These Star Wars pancake molds [12] work just as well for cookies, and they taste (and look) even more delicious with icing on top!

Camera Cookie Gift Box

Aren't so good in the kitchen? Buy up this adorable Camera Cookie Gift Box Set [15] ($35) from Etsy seller ManJar [16]. Coming with nine sugar cookies topped with almond flavored fondant, they're the perfect gift for any photography nut.
