Ferociously Dissatisfied KFC Customer Leaves Amazing, Scathing Review of a Literal Shit Sandwich


This guy went absolute rage mode after getting what shows all signs of a mayonnaise-drowned (legit drowned) shit sandwich. I'm just trying to find his Yelp account now for other reviews he might've penned in the throes of elevated anger.

Sunday Sweets Goes Pokémon

by Jen

Unless you've been living in a Kimmy Schmidt-style bunker the past month, you've probably heard of Pokémon Go. Or you've noticed a lot more people wandering the streets at night, except in a less murder-y, more giggly kind of way.

I'm still resisting the siren call of capturing invisible battle monsters with my phone, but I must admit, my will is weakening. Soon I, too, shall succumb, and we can welcome our invisible (but adorable) battling overlords with these faaaabulous cakes:

(By Bea's Cakes)


I freely admit I know nothing here, but Google as my witness, I'm gonna try to get these names right:


(By Lovin Oven Cakery)

Not sure which I like more: this cake (the giant rose! The sprinkles edging!) or that catty death stare. Let's call it a tie. And then back away slowly.



(By Reddit user Bilubul)

I believe this little guy has a flaming tail in the game, so how clever is this?? Plus he's my favorite color. And adorable.



(By Bake-a-Boo Cakes)

Hang on, there's a Pokémon who sits around napping and eating cake? I THINK I FOUND MY SPIRIT POKÉMON.



(By MaxMoschen)

According to the Bloggess this is actually called Dead Fish, and I think she's bang on. But I kind of want to hug him? Or dunk him in water? Or gnaw on his face? Feeling a little conflicted here.


Even we non-Pokémon peeps know Pikachu:

(By Cake Couture Designer)

I also spy a little Jiggly Puff, which - FUN FACT! - is also a term you should maybe not be Googling at work. Or around kids. Or without your Safe Search turned on. (Bet that leads to some fun parent/teen conversations.)


Here's an extra squee-worthy Pikachu, plus an Eevee:

(By Miki Suzuki)



Players are called Pokémon trainers, btw, and throw Pokéballs (those red and white things) to catch all their invisible creature overlords:

(By My Lil Cakery)

Love the silhouette and forced perspective.


There's also some kind of evolution thing that happens, so that cute little flaming Charmander up there can eventually turn into the vastly more intimidating Charizard:

(By Gina Rouchy) my favorite color combo! Yes!


Here's another cool Bulbasaur, whose rose hasn't opened up yet:

(By Andrea's Cakes)

I guess it's a late bloomer. (Eh? EH??)


(By Baking Obsession)


Hope you guys enjoyed the PokéSweets! Happy Sunday!

Note from john (the hubby of Jen)- I corrected the second name to Ivysaur. However, I also left the Epcot in the comments because every single one of you was polite in correcting me. This is the way the internet should be and I'm consistently proud of you readers for being awesome.

Sundays Sweets: Tim Burton Treats!

by Jen

Is there any time of the year more suited to Tim Burton cakes?


So here are my new favorites inspired by some of Burton's spookier films.



(By Sarah Olmsted)

We're starting off with a bang and a scream, because LOOK AT THIS CAKE. The sandworms! The waiting room! And the top with the model set's grave scene? Perfection.

It took me a good 15 seconds to find Beetlejuice, btw. See him? NO HINTS!



Corpse Bride:

(By Cake Central user lamiatorte)

1) I can't believe this is cake.
2) Emily looks dead sexy.

See what I did there?



Alice in Wonderland:

(By Silovoguo for the Cake Design Italian Festival)

All the other Alice cakes can just pack up, you guys. WE'RE DONE HERE.

(Sooo many stunning details, but look at the stack of floating teacups! That and the painted roses are my favorite bits. Plus Cheshire's eyes.)



(By Sara Giustizieri)

Excellent hand painting and figure sculpts so spot-on they could be collectible figures.


And everyone's favorite:

The Nightmare Before Christmas:

(By Dina Cimarusti Cakes)


This one has it all: the swirls, the bathtub, Oogie Boogie - I even see Zero!

(By Pucky Cakes)

Love that Sally gets her own cake here - and what IS that adorable bat/cat creature she's holding?
'Cuz I want one.


There are tons of Jack & Sally wedding cakes out there, but these two in particular caught my eye:

(By That Baking Girl)

The chalkboard tier has the famous "meant to be" quote from the movie. I love the swirly roses, and those colors! Plus the window frame topper is a genius design.


(By Splendor Cakes)

I really fell for the contrast on this one: that vivid pink and orange and lace topper with the dark sepia tones on the bottom is just... WORKING. You know? And I love the hand painted art of Jack and Sally in Dia de los Muertos face paint - a fun twist which helps explain the brighter colors.


And now, a few Sweets that bring all kinds of Burton characters together:

(Also by Sara Giustizieri)

Edward! Yay! Plus those vivid jewel tones look amazing behind all the figure sculpts.


And finally:

(By Queen City Bake Shop)

How cool is this?! The TV sets alone would make this a masterpiece, but then there are scenes from Nightmare, Frankenweenie, and Alice inside them!

And, you guys, they even light up:


Ahhh- mazing.


Happy Sunday, everyone! Now, who wants to go watch some movies?

It Starts as Layers of Glass, But After Lots of Work, They Become Seemingly Liquid Tables

Liquid Table

Artist Ben Young takes layers of glass and transforms them into bodies of water. No high-tech machinery is used in the making of these stunning tables, each one of these pieces are 100% handcrafted. First, he sketches everything out to make sure things look right. Next, he constructs models, hand-cuts sheets of glass, and then laminates layer upon layer to create the amazing organic forms. The hue is either a lighter or darker shade depending on the thickness of the glass. Continue reading for more pictures.

So you'll be safe from any Ravenous Bugblatter Beasts of Traal.


Now, let's fire up our electronic thumb and take a spin among Douglas Adams' stars!

Um, maybe I should rephrase that...


We'll flollop, willomy and glurry on Sqornshellous Zeta with Zem,

And maybe we can figure out where all the dolphins went.

(By Crunchies & Munchies)

It's been So Long...


Let's ask the mice, or Marvin the Paranoid Android!

(By Annica's Cakes)

Heck, he has a brain the size of a planet, so he ought to be able to figure it out.


And I'm sure we'll run into Agrajag again!

(By CakeCentral Member Ladybug Lady 13)

Really sorry about that, Dude. We didn't see you.

(You remember Agrajag, right? That poor creature who is continually reincarnated and then unknowingly killed -- every time -- by Arthur Dent? Of course you do...)


We'll stop at Milliways and dish with the Dish of the Day, before sitting down to a nice meal of...

(By Debbie Does Cakes)




(By The Sugar Syndicate)

Definitely salad.


You don't mind traveling by Chesterfield sofa, do you?

(By CakesDecor member Coocakecachoo)

Any other mode of transportation is most definitely not Krikkit.

(Extra geek cred if you get the sofa reference -- I even managed to stump Jen!)
(Shhhhhh... Don't tell her I ratted her out...)


I promise we'll get you home in time for tea.

(By Cakes by Lorinda)

Or something almost, but not quite, entirely unlike it.


And maybe some cookies.

(By Cookie Cowgirl)

Because even though the mice have assured us 42 is the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything, a couple of Sweets couldn't hurt.

Lix is World's Smallest 3D Printing Pen, Lets You Doodle in the Air

London-based Lix Pen has just unveiled an all-new 3D printing pen that's touted as the world's smallest. Similar to the 3Doodler, you doodle in the air via melted plastic, which quickly cools so that 3-dimensional structures can be built up from the bottom. After some practice, you could use Lix for prototyping, making custom jewelry, freestanding decorative sculptures, or eye-catching art pieces. Continue reading for a video and more information.

Animated Still Lifes: 7 Relaxing Cinemagraphic Illustrations

by Urbanist
[ By WebUrbanist in Art & Drawing & Digital. ]

animated bedroom fan gif

Reclining in the space between the extremes of sped-up, movie-style GIF files and traditional, immobile paintings, this artist brings lazy scenes of everyday reality to life.



Rebecca Mockam is a Brooklyn-based illustrator and comic artist whose cinemagraphs move only as much as needed, a different kind of visual artist’s takes on medium most often associated with photography.

animated gif magazine cover

Note that these reduced-sized examples don’t do justice to the detail and seamlessness of her originals, so it is worth looking more closely at her portfolio for these and more.

animated tabletop phone gif

Her work is peaceful and contemplative, lending itself to a lot of potential comparisons, including Edward Hopper and Norman Rockwell. At the same time, much of the subject matters is definitively contemporary, including all-too-familiar ringing phones and tablet swipes. Still-life Americana revisited, this approach (in the age of portable computers, tablets and phones) uses a medium that makes sense with its era.



Mockam has worked on everything from art exhibits and comic covers and is currently drawing a graphic novel titled Four Points, set to be released in 2015. She uses a Wacom tablet for most of her illustration work, sketches with a pencil and ink with various brush pens, and a nib & ink when it comes to drawing comics.

Window Sketches: Minimalist Landscapes of Steam & Glass

by Urbanist
[ By WebUrbanist in Art & Drawing & Digital. ]

steam glass sketch photos

No smoke-and-mirrors or post-production here, just fleeting vignettes swiftly staged on steamed windows and set against natural outdoor backgrounds.

steam water walking alone

Jim Osborne is a self-taught landscape artist who typically works in watercolor, acrylic and oils. He describes himself as being inspired by his surroundings, light and the weather. Recently, however, he has begun working in a new direction with water condensation on glass window surfaces.

band of brothers art

His Steamy Windows Collection represents a bit of a departure for him in terms of tools and approach – the work is necessarily fast, drawing on organic backdrops, lighting conditions and perceptual cues. Each piece is shot quickly as well, and prints can be found for sale on his website.

steam water window drawing

With the need for speed, every little gesture counts – the results are simultaneously planned but ultimately uncontrolled, a mixture of simple figures and hasty grounds that somehow manages to look like more than the sum of its parts. The approach seems like a a great way to train oneself to think in an agile fashion and be nimble in execution.

Sunday Sweets: Pretty as a Peacock

by Sharyn

When I was younger, I read somewhere that having peacock feathers in the house was bad luck. Something about the "eyes" on the feathers being evil.

Now, I don't know about you, but if I could gaze into these eyes all day, I'd consider myself downright lucky.

(Baker unknown)

Especially if I had a fork.


In fact, I'd feel pretty fortunate if I had any of these cakes around.

(By Sweet On Cake, sub'd by Paul M.)

Who could dread such a perfect fall of feathers?


And this little birdie would be welcome in any season:

(By Tasha's Tasty Treats)

Especially with all that intricate Mehndi-inspired piping! Wow.


Here's another pipe(ing)-dream:

(Baker unknown)

Look closely. See the peacock?
(And wouldn't those piped feathers make a lovely tattoo?)


Check out how this next one manages to convey "peacock" without a single beak or feather:

(By Fleur De Lisa Cake)


And another modern take:

(By The Royal Bakery)

That crest on top is too perfect.


Not that I'm dissing feathers, mind you!

(By McGreevy Cakes)

I want these as earrings.


You can even have a gorgeous peacock cake without a hint of their iconic blue:

(By Sweet Little Morsels)

So soft and sweet! I like the blush of pink in the flower buds.


Or for a real statement, how about white-on-white?

(By Martha Stewart Weddings)

Fingers crossed the bird was the ring-bearer.


Think we can eat the cake out of the middle of this and turn it into a lamp?

(By Vinism Sugar Art)

Eat your heart out, Tiffany.


And finally, if you've got it, flaunt it!:

(By Cakelava)

Well, it seems we've run out of peacock Sweets.

How unlucky.


Can't get enough peacock Sweets? Then here's 11 more!  And if you're wondering which bakers in your area have been on Sunday Sweets, check out our Sunday Sweets Directory!
