You may be wondering how a single, 30 year old guy like me heard of the cake show. Through the power of the Internet and an iPhone app, I was able to snag a deal onLivingSocial and all I could think about was free samples (how
utterly wrong I was). Maybe I had to purchase the upgraded ticket for the cupcake competition that evening, but my attention span can only be held so long and I got things to do.
In any case, I got to walk around tables and tables of cakes. In addition to professionals, cakes were also made by amateurs of all ages, from up-and-coming six year olds, to seasoned Betty (and possibly Billy) Crockers.
So with my trusty camera, I managed to snap several hundred pictures. Yes, there were that many cakes (and I noticed that I missed a few while developing my pictures). Oh well, maybe next year. Here are some memorable shots:
1. Do. Not Touch.
2. The best part. Frosting shots. Looks like some of us aren’t beating around the bush.
3. EXTERMI-BAKE EXTERMI-BAKE. This is from Doctor Who, for those of you who aren’t familiar with it.
4. This is a cake? It looks too real to be a cake. It belongs in a terrarium.
5. NANTS INGOYAMA
7. Toy Story.
Someone’s always chopping onions when I watch this scene:
8. Super Mario Bros.!
9. She deserves some award.
This six-year-old made the farm cake right behind her. She was walking around, scoping out the competition and I was lucky enough to get a picture of her next to her entry. Her mom says making the cake is like playing with Play-Doh. I say keep it up.
