Bakeries get a lot of leeway this time of year, since Halloween is supposed to have ugly gross stuff:   But there's raspberry jam soaked zombie faces, and then there's... uh... this : Took me a solid minute to figure it out: A banana shooting laser beams. (I am SO GOOD AT THIS , you guys.)   Yep, bakers are once again trying to collectively punk the world, churning out ridiculous Halloween designs each more baffling than the last: Aliens? Amoebas?
This guy?   I actually see this design a lot: The angry toilet paper has sprouted arms, and is...Read more http://www.cakewrecks.com/home/2014/10/30/9-hilariously-bizarre-halloween-cakes-to-make-you-go-huh.html

Recently, I received a box containing the holy trinity of sweet Halloween nostalgia: the re-issue of Monster Cereals : Count Chocula, Boo Berry, and Franken Berry. Any self respecting child of the 80's ought to be highly jealous of me, and also very excited about this re-issue, because you're an adult now and you can eat all the sugary cereal you want. But let me cut right to the chase and tell you that my first thought upon receiving the parcel was this: which cereal yields the best-tasting cereal milk? Long considered a by-product of the cereal eating experience, the residual...Read more http://www.cakespy.com/blog/2014/10/29/monster-cereal-milk-smackdown.html

I don’t know how many of you out there are all woo-woo when it’s comes to astrology, but for me, I’m a–let’s see, what would be the opposite of “fair weather fan”? Sucky weather fan?–let’s just say that I can get into astrology and like to take a peek/read way too much into cosmic forecasts when it feels like life is throwing hard things at me, machine-gun-style. Apparently Mercury was retrograde up until this past weekend, and sweet baby Jesus, I was feeling alllll of that retrogradeness, from stupid mistakes to flat tires to blah health and the list goes...Read more http://shaunasever.com/2014/10/carmelitas.html

Ever wonder what it'd look like if famous characters came back as wrecky ghost cakes? Yeah, me neither.

So meta.   A garden slug:
(Just go with it.) C'mon , bakers. Slugs? Really?   A door mat: Ok, now we're just getting ridiculous.   A roll of toilet paper: Srsly?? (Let's not ponder too long what the little ghost on top is.) ...Read more http://www.cakewrecks.com/home/2014/10/28/a-spirited-similarity.html

constant level than we do in places like our website. One of the problems with so many social media platforms is that it can eat up an enormous amount of our time, and sometimes...Read more http://cakesdecor.com/entries/1755-social-media-and-your-online-presence
