Tricia Tracks Down Twenty Tacky Tasty Treats


For the last 5 years I have become the designated baker and decorator of all my friends and family's birthday cakes. My cakes are generally themed around inside jokes, ridiculous pop culture, fears, or eccentricities of the cakes recipient. With no training or background in the art of confection decorating,  my cakes are carefully designed and decorated following 2 strict rules:

          1. If you can't make it super cute why not make it really ugly

          2.  Go big or go home



Here are a few cakes I've made in the past
Celebrate a friends petrifying fear of roaches!



Celebrate an unhealthy love of the Krystal burger!



Celebrate a friend's secret desire to hoard stray cats!



 In my quest to discover other bakers working in the  art of  ironic confection I scourered the Internet and came up with a list of my  twenty favorite cakes.
And So I give you...
