Sometimes the media sits up and takes notice of something going on in the world of cakery. And sometimes those news stories are just odd or interesting enough that I want to share them with all of you.
And that's how new categories are born, boys and girls.
Jen: [in announcer voice] "Today in Cake News: Better Art Through Cupcakes." [turning to face side camera] "The Buffalo News reported today that Zilly Rosen of ZILLYCAKES in Buffalo, NY, made a portrait of president-elect Obama using nothing but 1,240 cupcakes!"
Jen: "It sure is, Weather Guy. I guess you could call this one sweet piece of art!"
Thanks to Jenny B. and Joy for sharing the link. And yes, before you all ask: I AM relieved that Zilly didn't connect the cupcakes to make the world's largest CCC. Talk about a close call!
