The Wide (Weird) World of Cakes
No one said my job isn’t interesting. Each and everyday I’m scouring the web for articles on cakes, cupcakes, innovative designs, new recipes… you get the idea. Sites like CakeWrecks.com and others make this a very enjoyable excursion down the information superhighway. The web has been a bit quiet on the subject matter of interesting cakes lately, but I feel like I stuck gold today! I just had to share these two new sites that were brought to my attention – mostly for their “take” on the wide (and weird!) world of cakes. I’m just not sure you’d want to try these, I don’t, but you may get a kick out of checking out their sites.
Looks like a pizza, tastes like a cake. What? I had to review their site twice and then find an article on Fox News to help explain it all to me too! This baker creates custom fondant & sugar pieces, layered over “cake crusts” (I assume a fluffy layer or brownie base) to make her cakes look like pizzas. I don’t have anything against this, per se, but is there really a market for this? Do you want your cake to look like a pizza? Maybe its a guy thing…
Check out the article on FoxNews.com – if you dare!
Ok, I’ve been to college. I get it. This company has decided to make a ‘legal’ pot brownie, or cake rather, but using Melatonin as an ingredient. Melatonin, as I’ve learned is a hormone that regulated the sleep cycle in humans – basically, you eat, you get sleepy, you rest well (their slogan – “Relaxation Baked In”). Again, can’t say I’d want to try this, but it can definitely cause a hazard for children. We ran across this article stating the controversy. I suppose a lot like a booze cake (liquor baked in), it’s definitely ADULTS ONLY.
Maybe after you have a Lazy cake you’ll want to eat a Pizza Cake? Time will tell…
