Great Cake Bake – Knoxville, TN

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

Attention readers in the Knoxville, TN area! We just heard that the Knox county Public Library is holding the 2nd annual Great Cake Bake at the newly renovated Neyland Stadium this Saturday, 3/26 from noon to 5pm! The event will showcase the skills of cake decoraters from all levels – amateur to professional as well as a variety of children activities. Admission is only $5.00 and children under 10 are free.

Sounds like a great way to spend Saturday afternoon and it all goes to a good cause – the Imagination Library. This organization, started by Dolly Parton actually, helps promote literacy at the pre-school level by sending book to children in local communities. You can learn more by clicking their logo below.

We found a great photo of the some of the kind of cakes you’ll see at knoxnews.com from 2010.

Angry Birds Take The Cake!

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

Have you played this game? Angry Birds have been infecting smart phones everywhere (and expanded to computers and game consoles alike) and taking up lots of free time. What is it? A puzzle game! Why, you simply fling your Angry Birds with a sling shot and try to take out structures that house bad little (green) pigs. I’ll be honest, I’ve played – it’s addicting!

There are a lot of fans of the game out there and this father knew his son would get a kick out of creating a custom made Angry Birds cake (nice job Mike!). Visit the full article on PCWorld.com that also has a video of the cake working just like in the game!

World’s Largest Wedding Cake

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

Ever wondered what the world’s largest wedding cake looks like?

At 15, 032 pounds and 17 feet tall, this thing is three times the size of the cake that currently holds the world record. The cake team baked 700 sheet cakes and put them all together to build the giant cake. They had to use steel discs as cake boards, heavy duty metal pipes as separators, and two fork lifts to put each tier in place as it was finished.
