When memes and bakers collide...

purple chocolate
Posted on 01/21/2013 by epic_cakes


My girlfriend asked me to make her this cake and I happily did so because it's hilarious and condescending. The inside is a basic vanilla cake. I tried (lol) to make it polka dot inside using a cake pop tin to make some spheres but I failed to read the pamphlet and used an oil based recipe... so they wound up looking more like nipples. Oh well. Gold star for me XD

The cake is iced with caramel flavoured buttercream and then coated with Wilton gold cake spray. The text is royal icing (and it took forever to get it that dark... like half the container of gel colouring).

If someone baked me that cake I would cry. I would cry while eating the entire cake!

Yeah, I wouldn't make it unless it was a joke everyone was in on. Otherwise that's just mean XD

next time if you want black icing, start with chocolate and add black. :)

This is one of those things that should go without saying, and yet that thought never occurred to me :(

That's cute. I like the gold spray too. FYI, when using that much black dye in icing, your poop comes out green. I did that with a cake for my daughter's birthday, needless to say, I witnessed it first hand. I just hoped the other parent's didn't freak out.

I love this.
And I especially love that you managed to naturally fit "I tried" into the text. :-)

Hah, thankyou! And that was not deliberately written at all - just a coincidence :D
preciate_ya 3rd-Feb-2013 04:09 am (UTC)
Oh no I totally believe it was coincidence! I just love that it occurred.
