In my previous post about cake, I referenced comedian Jim Gaffigan’s comment about cake. I absolutely adore Jim Gaffigan- I think he’s *hilarious*. I finally found a copy of his cake bit online that hasn’t been deleted so I just have to share it. It’s from his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, so you have to forward to about 0:54 to get into the bit about cake.

This still makes me LOL and I’ve heard it a million times. 🙂 And his new bit on bacon almost makes me cry, it’s so funny.



Cake is a powerful food!* February 20, 2009

*It is has the power to bring people together!~ Jim Gaffigan

I love cake. Forget pies- just load up the buttercream and send it on my way. I don’t even care what kind of cake. Carrot cake, chocolate cake, red velvet cake, yellow cake. As long as it doesn’t have anything too weird in it (e.g. fruitcake or- ew- nuts), then send it on my way.

So, in planning a wedding, the cake is the #2 thing, second only to invitations, that I am really drooling over. I have barely even thought about the dress, but I’ve looked at 1000 photos of cakes. And I think I’ve found the one:

I love absolutely everything about it! The shape, the dots, the ORANGE! (Oh heavens how I love orange.) I’d say, though, that we’ll probably put pysanky-related fondant on the cake, or maybe not. But I just love this cake. (And the cake stand! Wow, gorgeous. I am now actively on the search for one just like this one!) ETA: I think I found the cake stand! Here. Now, do you think it’s the large one or the medium one?

What do you all think? Too weird and nontraditional or modern cool?

One of the most interesting design elements of a wedding cake, of course, is the topper, or lack thereof if you are so inclined. I am not sure if these will be too whimsical for my wedding cake, (who knows at this point!) but they sure are adorable!
