Let Them Eat Cake!

Ever since living in Utah, I feel like I've come in contact with a lot of talented bakers.

Take, for example,

Cakes from the school bakery contest:


A Pizza Cake!

A Fishbowl Cake!

A Hotdog and Fries Cake!



I was so shocked with how well these cakes turned out. How can people be so creative? Then I saw

Cakes from Midway Country Corner:


A Reeses Pieces and Popcorn Cake!

A Bumble Abominable Snowman Cake!

A Sweetarts Cake!



I'm proud to say that creativity runs a little bit through my family. This can be seen in a

Cake by my dad:


A Pyramid Cake!



Yeah, Utah, I know I'm going to fit right in. Mostly because my "creations" turn out looking like I had intended. Kind of like this

Cake by my mom:


"Cat food with chocolate on it?"
[Pause] Uh, It's An..."Earthquake" Cake...!
Yeah.

  1. "I can't believe it's made outta cake!" that's what that dude Buddy from cake boss says all the time. Because I am an extremely annoying person I bark that phrase constantly as well whether there is a cake around or not. I quite possibly do the worst impressions/accents ever so that only heightens the experience for those around me.

    cool dad cake, bad mom cake. my dad once made me a transformers cake for my 8th birthday. It was pretty cool but it didn't have the dimensions like your dads. What I'm saying here clearly is that my dad doesn't love me.

  3. Move over, Cake Wrecks! Looks like someone enjoyed your mom's cake straight out of the pan - with a sand blaster. :) And, that hotdog cake is quite disturbing.

  4. *sigh* Sort of jealous! I have a baking and pastry degree and hold no decorating skills whatsoever. So I get really jealous in an angry sort of way when people younger than me or my age has such a talent. x.x

  7. We have similar talents. I'd simply emphasize taste over presentation in this case. Besides, isn't that what it's gonna look like when it exits from the basement? :oD

  8. Hi! I'm a new reader from the blog party... and holy crap! That bumble snow cake is insane!!! Wow!! These all look so tasty... I could just lick the screen, lol! Nice to "meet" you!

  9. I, for one, dig your earthquake cake. Mainly because it looks very similar to everything I bake...

  10. WOW those cakes looked so amazing!! Pretty sure my cake would turn out more like the last if I tried to get too fancy with it! lol

  11. Great cakes! The "A Bumble Snow Monster Cake" is the Abominable Snowman from the classic Christmas movie Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer.

  12. Yeah, these bakers all have serious talent...that I don't have. It's okay, though, like Diva Latina said, it doesn't matter what the cakes look like--they all end up in the same place anyway.

    ButterYum, I know! That's why I took a picture of Bumble--I was excited to see an actual cartoon character that's edible.

  13. My cakes look like the last one, except that mine are also burnt. I am certainly not going to win any Top Chef contests!

    And those cakes are too pretty to eat--doesn't that defeat the purpose?

  21. Hey, that Earthquake Cake might become a trend in Utah so don't sell your mom short, okay? People do have various tastes in cakes, you know! I do have a fascination for cake decorating and I must say that the pizza cake appealed to me the most! Yum!

  29. Funny. I am so inept at cake decorating, but I always, always, always attempt to do something really great (and usually waaaay over my head). Because I dream big. Sometimes it works out okay, but not always. ;) Loved your post. Stopping by from UBP. Feel free to come by and say hi.
