In which I am naughty

I have a mountain of work, admin, packing, and correspondence to catch up on, but instead I am reading through my new favourite blog, Cake Wrecks, which I discovered via an old favourite blog, Jenny Davidson’s Light Reading. I’m sure all of you have been enjoying it for years. What can I say? I am slow.

So far it has led me to many pleasures but few top the delight of the world’s worst Dalek cakes. I confess that I laughed so hard I cried.

Then it led me to this. The making of the most incredible cake I have ever seen:

Apparently it took twelve days to make. Wow. Just wow.

    For some reason the amazing cake picture isn’t showing up in my browser. But I was wondering if it was the Batman cake from a month or so back. Because that one was pretty cool.

    As for the poor Dalek cakes, yes, they are bad, but it is hard to make Daleks from food items. I once made Daleks from hardboiled eggs, pickles, and cucumber, and it was a pain getting the toothpicks to center correctly. Also, half way into its creation, it tried to kill me.

    OMG, the Batman cake. The brackets on the drain pipe! The wee manhole cover! Amazing. But is it even edible after twelve days?
