The cake is a lie.

When I was a kid I was obsessed with cake decorating.

[Along with egg carton art:]

I took all the cake decorating books out of the library my little arms would carry. I pored over the pages, dreaming of all the breath-taking cakes I would make. Alas, after a few childhood attempts I gave up on my dream. Infact, creating anything is something that my adult life entirely lacks. A shame, it is.

Here are some cool cakes.

SAVE ME FROM THE SATANIC CAKE!!!!!

When watching Ace of Cakes and stuff, I sometimes feel torn about the form over function of it. But I guess you decide; Do I want an artistic cake, or a yummy cake? Are the two as mutually exclusive as it sometimes seems?

[And now I finally know what ‘the cake is a lie’ means. I would call today a productive day.]

  1. I am so weak! A post about cakes and I’m heading to the bakery now…

    (Please don’t post about naked girls… Wait, I take that back…)

  2. I hope you got the magnum cake

  3. No, instead I got a “We just laid off a bunch of people and you were not one of them, but the girl beside you and the guy to your right? They’re gone” meeting… :|

  4. I am sorry to hear that… are you feeling pretty secure though? :(
