Celebrate The Onset Of Your Seasonal Affective Disorder With These Depressing Pastries

The Depressed Cake Shop

Winter is coming. Which means that seasonal affective disorder season is right around the corner. I don’t know about you, but the first thing I reach for when I’m depressed is a sugar fix. Miss Cakehead, the same company that brought you STD Cupcakes, wants to offer you a something sweet this SAD season. The Depressed Cake Shop, their latest pop-up venture featuring only grey baked goods thematically tied to mental illness, is serving dreary desserts (that hopefully still taste good) to residents all around the UK. They hope that the treats will raise awareness and money for those struggling with mental health issues. Funds from the stores will be donated to mental health charities or help fund therapy sessions for people in need.”[Baking] has long been thought to be therapeutic for depression sufferers”, said creative director of Miss Cakehead, Emma Thomas. I’ll eat to that. [Design Taxi]

These cupcakes, created by Stefani Pollack of Cupcake Project, actually contain no cake: they’re made entirely of frosting. Instead of chocolate cake, the base is made by piling chocolate frosting in a chocolate wrapper, and the whole thing is topped with more frosting. I’ve never been a big fan of frosting, so this photo is giving me a sugar headache, but I’d imagine for some people (ahem, Ami), this creation is a dream come true. Any other frosting fiends out there who are dying to try one of these? [Laughing Squid]

Tales Of A Thoroughly Disappointing Cupcake(-Shaped Vibrator)

Ami was disappointed that a press release which seemed to offer her a free cupcake (!) to try was actually offering her a free cupcake-shaped vibrator to test.

I was disappointed in the choice of shape, which is not ergonomic and will look absolutely ridiculous pressed up against one’s ladybusiness. And for $48!

And Sophie was disappointed that none of us realized this Shiri Zinn Cupcake vibe is a gag gift.

All around, a thoroughly disappointing cupcake(-shaped vibrator). [Bloom Enjoy Yourself]

I did not enjoy the recent article in the Wall Street Journal saying that consumers have “gourmet-cupcake burnout” and that’s why cupcake stock and sales are down. “Demand is flat. And quite frankly, people can bake cupcakes,” said some stupid food industry big wig.

First of all, I have never baked a cupcake (or anything) in my life, nor do I plan to. I do, however, enjoy having stuff baked for me. I will pay to have stuff baked for me. That’s why I go to a cupcake shop. So someone who owns an egg beater can make me a personal cake. It’s the same reason I pay for someone to make my morning latte. Because I don’t own a top-of-the-line espresso machine. Keep reading »

As you can probably tell, it has been quite a stressful week here at Frisky HQ. Thanks to a hard drive fire (seriously, a fire!), our admin capabilities has been wavering between being totally broken and pretending to be fixed long enough to let us work for a few hours and then delete everything we did. I knew this week’s project needed to be of the alcoholic variety, but when I found a recipe for vodka cupcakes (let me just say that again: VODKA! CUPCAKES!), I thought, “Damn, even better!” Let’s all whip up a batch of boozy baked goods and forget our troubles. At least until Monday. [The Baking Robot]
