America, cake yeah!


Love and Lots of Sugar has documented some of the creation of a remarkable Captain America fourth birthday cake that, in cross section, displayed the stars-n-stripes. It's a really sweet bit of topology-based baking, and, judging by the photos, was a smash-hit.

The last picture I posted hit it big on Reddit. Some really nice things have been said. (Thanks, Fipi Lele!)

  1. Wow, that’s a lot of effort. Especially compared to the cake’s evil nemesis, Red (Skull) Velvet.

  2. topography? As in the study of the surface of the earth? Maybe you meant topology because of the toroidal cross-section of blue, I can’t figure it out.

  3. It’s a really sweet bit of topology-based baking, and, judging by the photos, was a smash-hit.

    SMASH hit? You must be thinking of the other Avenger-themed cake. You know, the big green one.

    1. Speaking of big green one, I used to make a Libya flag cake but that shit got a way too difficult last year.

  4. And, not to be jingoistic, a Texas flag (accidentally)  created on the frosted edge of the cut piece in the main pic. :P

  5.  now , that’s some red white and blue patriotism that i can sink my teeth into !!! or is that crimson , white , and indigo ?? hahrhrarhrh
