This week, we've decided to showcase amazing cakes based on some of the finest, most thought-provoking shows ever to grace American television.
But seriously, could that be a more awesome cake?
Our Fondant Free Sweet of the Week™! When you remember that the vast majority of wreckerators can't even pipe a straight line, those socks become all the more impressive.
And in case you've forgotten, we're actually talking about TV shows this week:
That's one awesome Survivor cake, but you know what's even better? The fact that it's on a plate with one fork. America: the only thing more impressive than our TV shows is our serving sizes.
In case you don't appreciate fine television, this is the spaceship from the show Firefly. Which was canceled. Which is a travesty. Let us take a moment to mourn its passing.

And now... JAZZ HANDS!!!
Or "hand" as the case may be. Off topic, but has anyone ever actually had a slushie thrown at them in high school? 'Cause I was a pretty big doofus through most of my teen years and no one even threw water at me. And since when did they start serving slushies in school anyway? When I was a boy, we didn't have slushies. We chewed the bark off trees and we loved it!
Hey, look! It's the Stargate!
Now check out this awesome Kermit Thee Frog here:
[Kermit flail] Yaaaay!
Huh. Actually, I'm more of a Next Generation guy, so maybe I should ask Jen about this one.
Grrr! Arrrgh! It's a Buffy cake!
Ahh, Alf. Alf is one of those shows that you loved as a kid, but now when you see it again on Hulu you're all like, "Huh." And then you change it back to Firefly reruns.
*Update: [wiping goo from eyes] We have an Epcot. Repeat: we have an Epcot. It's about the Grrr line. I apparently forgot that it's in the credits for Joss Whedon's production company. That's what I get for trying to be funny. In my defense, the only part of any credits I've ever remembered was, "Sit Ubu, Sit! Good Dog!" In other news, man it's early. Oh, and I'm pretty sure all the cakes are daisies. If you need me, I'll be drooling on my pillow. -john
