This Is What Happens When You Piss Off The Baker Making Your Engagement Cake

When bride-to-be Micaela Harris told her sister she had an engagement cake all lined up for her party, her sister insisted on being the one to bring the cake. Micaela agreed and her sister went about getting her a custom-made cake from New Zealand bakery, Oh Cakes. Somewhere along the way, Micaela’s sister got in an argument (the details of which are not specified unfortunately) with Emma McDonald, the owner of Oh Cakes. That’s when things got crappy.

Weekend Project: A Girl Scout Cookie Cake Of Dreams

Yes To Dessert!
Why Ami doesn't skip dessert. Read More »

I’m starting to get emails warning me that Girl Scout Cookie Season, AKA The Annual Will Power Challenge That We All Eventually Fail, is quickly approaching. If you’d like to get in the sugary spirit a bit early, or just can’t wait to bite into that first delicious Samoa cookie, might I suggest this breathtaking Samoa bundt cake? Not only does it look like a giant Samoa cookie, it tastes like one too. Good luck, and God help us all. [BetsyLife.com]

10 Weird & Wonderfully Appalling Cake Disasters

10 Weird & Wonderfully Appalling Cake Disasters
We’ve been known to try our hands at baking every once in a while. But we typically stick to pretty standard stuff. And with good reason — deviate from the plan and you could wind up with one of the extreme cake disasters we discovered. These cakes prove that just because you can bake doesn’t mean you should.

Kate Middleton And Prince William Get Baked

Some things are just not necessary. An almost-lifesize cake replica of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s faces, made from 20 lbs. of marzipan and 10 lbs. of icing, for example. Important question, though: whose face do you cut up first? [The Gloss via The Windsor Knot] Keep reading »

Wear Your Cake And Eat It Too

A new cost-saving trend in wedding dresses/cakes, or just an artsy concept made for fun? Only time time will tell, of course, but somehow, I doubt we’ll be seeing this creation at a “feminist wedding” any time soon. [via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

The Last 31 Days Of 2008: Get A Sweet Tooth

Since we are all going to resign ourselves to lose weight as our New Years Resolution, I might as well finish out my 2008 eating like a greedy girl. My total obsession is sweets. Cookies, ice cream, cupcakes. Love them all and could probably OD on chocolate all day long. I don’t need to eat a balanced diet with Godiva in my life. As an ode to my addiction, I’d like to try and whip up a decadent chocolate cake. Baking is very therapeutic and there’s nothing better than smelling that wonderful aroma of something cooking from your oven. I’m going to try this one from the Food Network.

10 Butt-Kicking Breakup Ballads

Over the weekend, The New York Times’ advice column, “Social Q’s,” got a query from a recently dumped girl who just couldn’t seem to cheer up. Writer Philip Galanes pointed out, the proper soundtrack can get you grooving to your own gloom! He singled out Pink’s new anthem about getting back out there after her own divorce, “So What.” He then encouraged the sad soul to sing along at full blast until it became her new mantra: “So, so what/I’m still a rock star/I’ve got my rock moves/And I don’t need you.” Yeah, that’s some solid (as a rock) advice! But Pink isn’t the only one who has weathered the storm after a split. Since misery loves company, here are The Frisky’s picks for beating the blues to get you back in the mood to be your butt-kicking self! Keep reading »

Chocolate Cake For One

While poking around online yesterday, I came across this recipe for a single serving of chocolate cake (the photo at left is merely my serving suggestion). Now, being a single gal who likes to bake, I get a little sad from time to time when I make a cake or a pie and have no possible way of eating it all myself. That’s why I hope this recipe isn’t crap. The cake takes just five minutes to make and doesn’t involve mixers, cake pans, or any of the other required kitchen accessories you might not own if you haven’t had a wedding registry. I’m going to make myself a mini cake and report back on how it looks and what it tastes like, but if any of you try the recipe, let me know whether the mini cake is a success! (And send photos to tips@thefrisky.com.) [Dizzy Dee] Keep reading »

Crave: Cake-sicle Molds

I just saw this and went, “Holy crap, why didn’t I think of this bazillion dollar idea?!” Put a stick in anything and you’ve got solid gold people. Cookie/cake popsicles are no exception, especially when you’re prone to getting chocolate chip fingerprints on your new white dress, like I am. [Amazon.com] Keep reading »
