Ah, Austin. That sweet, funky town in the middle of a state that yearns for my death. I can actually feel its beady little state eyes glaring at me from here, waiting for me to fly over its borders so it can shoot down my plane with its state death ray. Or maybe make my spleen burst. Or - OR - maybe I'll just choke on a Texas peanut. But, I digress.
So, apparently, there's this "cake show" in Austin where bakers make cakes and show them. Which is why it's called a "cake show." And apparently, many of these cakes are freaking awesome. Let's take a look, shall we?
(You may have noticed by this point that I'm not all that "good" with "words" but I am "trying.")
Yellow is my favorite color!
Ya know, what's most impressive to me is that these bakers actually left the relative safety of their own homes and, as far as I know, Texas did not kill a single one of them. Frankly, I'm amazed.
Green is my favorite color!
I'm pretty sure those are daisies.
This next cake was part of the official Texas theme of the show:
Which was death.
Wait. I'm being told that it actually wasn't death.
(Are you sure? It was in Texas, right?
Ok, apparently the theme was "Superheros."
Like this one:
Great. Now I have the theme from "Batman" stuck in my head.
(I'm also not so good with "Superheros.")
Blue is my favorite color!
And finally, the most awesome cake I've seen in quite some time:
Because, if you remember from up there ^, yellow is my favorite color!
A special thanks to our Texas liaison, Kimberly Chapman. And hey, maybe next year Jen and I will be able to attend the show! (They rent out the Popemobile, right?)
Have a Sweet to nominate? Then send it to Sunday Sweets [at] Cake Wrecks [dot] com.
Quick update: Thanks for the great comments today guys. For the record, Jen and I both agree that Texans are some of the kindest, most awesome people we have met. However, I've been to Alamo, Houston, Amarillo, Dallas and Austin and been sick, injured or hospitalized every time. But maybe it's just me... -j
