Hello Kitty helps ring in a new and exciting year with real style. You can try to deny it, but animal prints are seriously in style and stripes are always and forever chic. Thanks Kitty, for keeping me abreast of the trends!
Eli Squarepants! Okay so I'm not really a Spongebob fan, I'm a little old for that one, but I do think the show is cute and my nieces and nephews love it. This cake is a masterpiece topped off with those little jellyfish, I'm smitten. It makes me want to watch the show just because someone was so masterful with fondant. Hey baker, are you being payed by Nickelodeon?
I've seen a few "Up" themed cakes, but they usually forget Kevin! I'm glad to see she gets her day in the sun here, being almost as tall as the house and all. Do you think the balloons are crunchy like Necco wafers? Mmmmmmmm... Necco wafers.
I always thought that large Lego cakes looked so fussy with all the cupcake bumps that you have to frost separately and all that. This is an ingenious solution with round candies! Let's just hope Jackson is old enough to not smash all the bits together to try and build something.
Some people might look at this cake and think "Wow, someone needs to lay off the foundation!" but I can tell you, being a former MAC employee, it's addictive stuff. There was a time when I, who currently needs to make a real effort to put on mascara every day, would have DIED over this cake. I could have told you the names of the exact shades of every product shown because let me tell you, any MAC freak worth her salt (or sugar) would DEMAND authenticity in color here. Oh the memories.
I know this isn't the most perfect cake we've ever seen around these parts but you guys, it was made for a dog's birthday! It's meatloaf and all the icing is colored mashed potatoes!
The best part is a little story the submitter told. Apparently one year she brought a slice of doggy cake to give to a coworker to take home to their pupper. A fridge-sneaking boss thought it was a real cake and took a big ol' bite! That'll teach you to steal food!
