A Witcher fan decided to create a clever cake inspired by the series for their boyfriend, and it features some hilariously vivid imagery.

A good relationship requires patience, respect, and mutual understanding. A great relationship requires a sexy Geralt cake. Hey, those are the rules. While many have impressed their significant others with wonderfully nerdy shows of affection such as creating a whole dang game to propose, it seems love comes from a different place with this latest romantic gesture. Namely, it comes from a tiny chocolatey bathtub inspired by The Witcher.

One particularly clever baker decided to surprise

REVIEW: The Bride Wedding Cake From the Halloween Horror Nights Tribute Store is a Bloody Good Treat at Universal Studios Florida

After tasting the also delightful Knife Trifle Cake from the Halloween Horror Nights Tribute Store, we decided to gather our courage and have another tasty encounter, this time with the Bride Wedding Cake.

Bride Wedding Cake – $10

And here comes the bride! While this cake has a very similar structure to the Knife Trifle, the frosting is different with more of a vanilla buttercream taste, while having the same delicious thick vanilla cake layers.

These Photos Make The Case For Bringing Back Funnel Cakes (and Other Fair Foods) In 2021

The year 2020 robbed us of the annual opportunity to gather in mass to ride all the rides, play all the games, and enjoy an array of glazed, fried, jumbo size portions of food at the local fair. But with more of the population getting vaccinated against COVID-19, fall of 2021 is looking promising for those who love to attend the fairground and the vendors who cook up all the tasty options.

These photos remind us of foods you rarely consume outside of a carnival or fair atmosphere, and perhaps excite some folks at the chance to return.

Cake Fear: “It Pretty Much Chewed Everyone Up And Spat Them Out”

It was still dark, and Jeremy Wilmotte and Lachy Lemarseny were nervously trying to pick their jump-off moment, when Billy Morris came down the path, slipped over, and landed on his arse in the mud.

“I couldn’t see where I was going!” Bondi’s veteran superstar lensperson claimed later.

Billy wasn’t the only one to fall that day. For the next five hours or so, the crew who’ve made Wedding Cake bombie their go-to challenge in massive southerly swells threw themselves against this woolly mammoth of a wave, heedless of its desire to smash them into very small pieces indeed.

Make a Cake This Weekend

Good morning. It’s still Melissa here, taking over for Sam while he’s on vacation.

I hope you were able to go on some kind of vacation this summer, too. Or maybe you’re there now, reading this on a breezy beach or under a green tree canopy with the sun dappled through the leaves. That’s where I am as I write — working in the garden of a rented country house with my laptop perched on my knees. Early this morning, I saw a small gray bunny hop across the grass, which for this born-and-bred city kid is an absolute thrill.

Couple speaks out after video game-themed wedding cake topper unexpectedly goes viral

Social media users branded a humorous wedding cake topper that highlighted a groom’s love for video games as offensive, but the couple behind the requested figurines say that’s not what they meant.

Perla Blanco and Gerardo Martinez got married in late July after four years of dating. Their special day, which was celebrated in Monterrey, Mexico, with close family and friends, went viral on TikTok when their guest Leonardo Aceves shared a clip of their unique wedding cake.

The top-tier featured a wedding cake topper of a bride and groom, but instead of going the traditional route, the bride is

Benjamina Ebuehi’s recipe for apricot camomile cake | Baking

Apricots rank pretty high up on my list of favourite stone fruits, and they score extra points when they’ve had some time in the oven to soften and release all of that sweet, slightly sharp nectar. Here, I’ve nestled them in a cake rather than a tart, because it can be a bit of a pain trying to keep pastry chilled in a hot summer kitchen. The camomile, subtle but present, brings such a soothing, floral vibe that just makes me want to hold on to summer for as long as possible.

Cook This: If you like fig preserves, you will love this cake | Food/Restaurants

Claudia Fowler penned a recent “Human Condition” column for the paper where she mentioned how fig preserves tend to be one of those love ’em or hate ’em kinds of food.

She and her husband, Jim, love them. And, while his favorite way to enjoy them is in a peanut butter and fig preserve flap-over, her favorite is fig cake.

We asked Claudia to share the recipe, and, boy, does it look good!

Human Condition: Figs are helping to preserve memories

Claudia says Jim, who used to deer hunt with buddies in north Louisiana, snagged the recipe more than 40

Blue Ribbon Cake winning recipe

Janette Chapman has been a judge at the Kentucky State Fair’s from-scratch “Your Favorite Cake” competition for years. With dozens of entries each year, she’s tasted hundreds and hundreds of cakes. 

But some of those cakes stand out. Through the blind taste testing, many years she’d come across a spectacular cake and say, “That’s got to be Martha York’s cake.” 

“And sure enough it would be,” Chapman said. “She must have won every year she entered. She passed away a few years back … I didn’t know her, I just knew all of her cakes.” 

This year, when the
