Yes, we are quite far from Valentines day love ins, but we’re also on the cusp of wedding season. As sickly sweet as it is, we’ve decided to embrace love cakes this week, in honor of Giacomo Casanova, the legendary Italian stallion who died on this day in 1798.
It’s also a great excuse to put a picture of David Tennant on the blog (Tennant played Casanova in a BBC drama three parter recently) and Kate is always looking for an excuse to put a picture of David Tennant on the Blog. Sigh.
But now to tastier things – cakes! Awesome cupcake with a modern spin – everyone loves cupcakes.
If you like your cakes masculine and subtle, this one is not for you…
Bet it’s still yum though. Ahhhhhhhhh, and lastly, heart shaped fruit!
Not too many pics this week, because only so much sickening affection can be tolerated in conjunction with sickening amounts of fondant. We shall be back to our usual quirkiness next week, with a healthy dose of scepticism to even this out.
Here’s a story for you: My Mum always makes my birthday cakes. She makes the best cake. One year when I was young and ungrateful, she spent, literally, hours icing Disney’s Little Mermaid onto cake for my birthday party. When she showed it to me I said, “She looks ugly”. My poor Mum!!! It’s difficult to ice faces onto cakes well, but looking back on photos of my cake my Mum did genuinely do an EXCELLENT job – she wasn’t at all ugly. She was gorgeous infact. And lovingly piped. However, ungrateful infant me was a right biatch about it. I hate myself sometimes.
So, here are some of the internet’s celebrity face cakes. I love them because of the effort and the love (not necessarily what they look like. Some of these are actually ugly.)
Obviously, we had to go with Easter this week. And we’re starting with Simnel Cake – the Easter classic!
Because it’s actually ON FIRE. Blow that out, birthday boy. Wait – I didn’t mean that to sound so dirty…
Pyrocakeomania = win x
We’re still in January so we’re sticking with our zero calorie cakes theme – what do you think of these babies?
Oh god, the Dieting has started!
As such, we’ve gone calorie free for our first CotW of twenty ten. We have taken a holiday over the holidays because our little brains were frizzled the hell out, but now we are well and truly back on track, and lining up posts for this most frugal of months as we speak!
Happy new year to all of you, and PUT THAT CHOCOLATE DOWN! End the madness now.
This cake makes a startup noise when you cut it.
On 20th November 1985, Microsoft launched Windows 1.0, and at this time, Bill Gates was not spectacularly rich, there was no internet, there was no DVD, there was no Three and thus no point in life. BAD TIMES. But now, good times! Despite the cock up that was Vista.
