I like watching Ace of Cakes on Food Network. It’s one of my guilty pleasures. The show is about Charm City Cakes, a cake shop in Baltimore run by a group of funky, creative, off-beat artists who make fanciful, charming, one of a kind cakes. While they can make traditional, elegant, Martha-style cakes, the tv show only documents the fun stuff they design. I can only wish I’d have a reason to order a cake from them, which costs a minimum of $1000. I often wonder what I would ask them to design. I also wonder if their cakes actually taste good since their cakes are all fondant covered, and fondant is basically sweet play dough, fun to play, not so fun to eat.
My cousin, Cynthia, told me she had made a Wii cake yesterday. A Wii cake? I thought it was a Wii game that lets you pretend to bake by twirling your wrists just like one can pretend to exercise by standing on a board with Wii Fit. But when Cynthia actually showed me the cake, I was quite impressed!
Good job, Cyn!
