You ever stumble across a reeealllly old website - I'm talking pre-2008 here - where it's got the auto-play music, ten different fonts, plus flashing geocities-style graphics of crying kittens and glitter trails behind your cursor?
Well minions, I've found some cakey equivalents, and they. are. GLORIOUS.
The only thing missing is 8-bit Mario music and a MySpace link.
This is why you never drink and web-design:

Look, I'm not one to over-analyze something as trivial as cake...

Mmmhmm. No, yeah, that's suuuper cute and appropriate for us modern workin' gals, am I right, ladies?
Riiiight. Thanks to Heather S., Kathy G., Jessa H., Seab & Steph, and Katie H. for the blergiest of cakey blergs.
