Friends, acquaintances, decorators.
There is a new bakery trend arising. One that's making me SICK. And also kind of excited. Mostly sick. But sort of excited.
Sticking wrapped candy on finished cakes.
Now, the excitement comes into play because, hello! Candy is awesome. So putting candy on cake sounds like mixing angel giggles with a hug from a rainbow.
The disgust, however, comes from the fact that the candy is wrapped. And on a cake. Or in some cases:
IN a cake.
And digging through icing with your fingers just to unwrap a piece of chocolate that is covered in chocolate and then smooshed into
chocolate sounds about as appealing as... ooh, look!
In a sweet, oozy green metallic coating!
Apparently, the more candy and flotsam you shove on top, the more "fancy" the "brownies" become.
Assuming there are actually brownies in there somewhere.
Or, if chocolate-covered chocolate in your chocolate is too much chocolate for you, there's always the paper-wrapped sugar sticks in your sprinkle-covered sugar cake approach:
So, when all else fails, and a regular ol' normal-people
cake just won't cut it, go ahead and jam any and everything you can find into a plastic container:
, that's why.
Thanks to today's Wreckporter wrappers Thomas P., Martha, Jo N., Sarah D., Kendra, and Matt P., who will now go forth and fetch me a Twix. No? Anyone?
