Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
After 10 seasons on the air, it looks like one of our fave food shows, “Ace of Cakes,” has been canceled. We love head cake guy Duff and his adorable team of punk rock bakers and have enjoyed watching them do totally otherworldly things with fondant and buttercream over the years. After the jump, we collected some of our favorite unbelievable Charm City Cakes designs.
Some prefer their turkey day drunkenness to transpire on the couch with a dozen relatives and a football game. Others prefer their alcohol shot directly in the bird. Georgi Vodka and several New York City restaurants have infused a turkey with five different types of vodka and prepared a 100-proof vodka gravy to serve on the side.

French Connection was inspired by a fancy pajama party for its holiday collection, so most of the fabrics are soft and luxurious like a favorite, worn-in pair of PJs. While most of the garments are done in neutral tones — black, grayish silver, and beige — the retailer threw in a bit of light blush pink. Sequins and rhinestones adorn some pieces, too.

While the lights went out in the passenger cabin, they used the jet’s good engine to circle the airport for an hour and dump enough fuel to safely land the debilitated plane. Leo put out a statement via his rep about the incident today. “[Leonardo] wishes to commend the actions of the pilot and flight crew in bringing the plane to a safe landing,” it read.
Leonardo is far from the first celebrity to be on a very scary flight. After the jump, tales of celebrity plane rides gone turbulent. Some of them have happy endings, and very sadly, some do not. Keep reading »
Few historians recall the contributions of the cat pilgrims, a small but powerful band of felines who made the perilous journey to the New World along with the regular people pilgrims. Nonetheless, when William S. Catford II and the rest of his merry band of pilgrim cats made their maiden voyage on the Mayflower, the course of history was changed fur-ever. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
