When I Grow Up I Want to be a Cake Decorator


I never watch the Food Network because I'm not interested in cooking. Well the truth is I'm a terrible cook! However I do make great salads and reservations at restaurants ; ). Anyways last night D. and I were switching through channels and we came across this show called "Ace of Cakes" on TFN. Has anyone seen it? I was immediately captivated by this reality program about a cake decorating shop called Charm City Cakes where a group of friends who are mostly musicians and artists create and build these amazing and unbelievable custom cakes in a short period of time. These people are so creative and talented, my mind was blown away as we watched the episode. They created the cake above for a book launch in New York. Even the hair is edible! Below are some other cakes the group at Charm City Cakes has made.









Amazing, isn't it?! While googling these images I also came across another cake I just had to share with you. (Not made by City of Charms). Isn't it the creepiest thing you've ever seen?

Umm, I'll have the head please.

I hope you have a fabulous weekend everyone! Mine will be exciting as my best friend is in labor right now and I am awaiting to hear news her baby has arrived! We were supposed to meet for lunch today but her water broke. Go figure.
