I love cake! Marie Antoinette’s famous line – “let them eat cake” – is one of the many quotes I try to live my life by (even if she was probably referring to a cake-textured bread that was commonly consumed in France during that time… not actual cake).
There was a point in my life where I thought I was a semi-decent cake decorator. This abruptly ended when I saw an episode of Cake Boss and the illusion shattered causing me to realize that I am, at best, a mediocre cake designer. My cake decorating pinnacle was in high school when I created a globe cake for my Human Geography class complete with blue frosting water and green fondant. The best thing I can say about that cake – it tasted goodish?
The following cakes are light-years more advanced than anything I could make. Please revel in the beauty of literary-inspired cakes:
Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
