Anna Kendrick Is Haunting Jennifer Aniston In This “Cake” Trailer

Anna Kendrick Is Haunting Jennifer Aniston in This Cake Trailer

Jennifer Aniston is putting her full-time job of possibly being pregnant, definitely being sad and alone to make an Oscar bid with “Cake.” Aniston plays a woman suffering from chronic pain who keeps seeing the ghost of a woman (Anna Kendrick) from her support group who committed suicide. It’s obviously a dark drama with comedic moments, but I think the funniest moment of the trailer might have been heralding the hundred Academy Award nominees in the cast followed by little old nominee-less Sam Worthington. Do you think he feels left out? Read more on College Candy…

Happy Monday, Here’s A Gigantic Creepy Jennifer Lawrence Cake

Jennifer Lawrence

Lara Clarke, a talented self-taught British baker and “Hunger Games” fan, was honored with a gold prize at the Cake International competition for this life-size cake of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen. The cake matches J.Law’s measurements exactly, and Clarke brought along a backup cake just in case — a giant Tyrion Lannister from “Game of Thrones.” Last year, she won gold at the same contest for a crisped rice Jack Sparrow cake. The cake took 150 eggs, 22 pounds of butter, 132 pounds of icing and two months to come together. It also has staring vacant eyes, so there’s that.

10 Types Of Customers You Meet While Working In The Whole Foods Bakery

There were a great many things that I enjoyed about working at Whole Foods, particularly in the bakery — not least of all the enthusiastic parents and excited kids, the repeat customers who considered me and my coworkers a sort of tangential social circle, and anyone who was psyched as fuck to get a free cookie (I was profligate with the free cookies). However, because the store markets itself as if it is necessarily moral and responsible to shop there, it also necessarily comes along with some very colorful personalities. I think that some of the people who shopped in the bakery, specifically, had real existential crises: They were in a store that was supposed to be “healthy,” but here they were confronted with fat- and sugar-laden cake! Their brains short-circuited and they became the following people: Keep reading »

Here’s Your New Hobby: Cake Decorating!

I taught myself how to decorate cakes with YouTube videos during a year in which I had a job so boring and soul-draining that, had I not started decorating cakes, I surely would have gone insane. The following year, I got a job decorating cakes, and stuck with it for three years. My training was finished on the job, and with practice I got, well, really, really good.

The point is, decorating a cake like a boss is not that hard. You can do it at home, and you only need a few supplies, time to practice and some patience. I’m going to give you a selection of YouTube videos about the various basic steps of assembling and decorating a cake whose advice I can endorse. Keep reading »

Eat Angelina Jolie’s Face With This Crazy “Maleficent” Cake

Maleficent cake

Angelina Jolie is frightening enough as the evil queen in “Maleficent” but with part of her (red velvet cake) face cut off? Terrifying. Talk about a truly sinful dessert!  [The Kitchn via Tattooed Bakers]

My Cake-Alike, Myself

“Face-to-cake with myself, it’s one of the most surreal feelings I’ve ever experienced,” writes Jill Foster of the Daily Mail. “Yes, it’s narcissistic, but I can hardly take my eyes off ‘me’. Is this how the Queen feels every time a new portrait is unveiled?” 

I didn’t really need to read any further than that. Foster had me at the phrase “face-to-cake with myself.” But naturally, I read on because we’re talking about cake here. Not just cake, cake-alikes, life-sized cake likenesses of human beings. Keep reading »
