LET THEM EAT CAKE Never one to turn down anything made with butter and sugar, I do admit I'm not that fond of cake. The frosting yes, the cake, sometimes not so much. But cakes are so pretty...except when Duff makes Zombie cakes...but then there is just the cool factor. I love watching Ace Of Cakes and seeing what the Charm City crew comes up with. There are a lot of talented folks out there coming up with interesting cakes. Which leads me to:
HOMER...now this is a cake to look at...not sure I'd want to slice into it, I mean, God only knows what Homer would taste like! To see the creation, go here. Since I know some of the tricks now that I watch Ace of Cakes, I wonder just how much of that is all cake?
GEEKS Yes, geekyness does seem to find it's way to my household more often than not. And what better way to salute geekydom than by baking a geek cake. I may have shown them before, but I just love the innovativeness of these. Check them out here.
HOCKEY Opening night is only 37 days away. I saw these cupcakes today and it immediately made me think of my beloved Sharks. Someones got to figure out a cool way to make the fin edible. Check out the cupcakes here. If anyone can figure out what cookbook thats from let me know!
AND ICE CREAM And what would a slice of cake be without some ice cream? Today is National Coffee Ice Cream Day. And if you can't find coffee ice cream, a Starbucks Coffee Frapp would work! (Don't tell Mr. L but I snuck some Haagen Dazs Coffee Ice Cream in the freezer for tonight :)
