  1. Hi Robert…

    Rachel Bowen .

  2. I agree, Yasir, t’would be hard to watch.

    lol, Rachel, thanks. Not so bad yourself there. :D

    Thanks for the comments!

  3. Check out Threadcakes as well. It’s an annual contest where people create and decorate cakes inspired by Threadless t-shirt designs. Some of the cakes are phenomenal (check the 2011 and 2010 winner galleries). The contest should begin sometime soon again for 2012, its usually a summer thing, if anyone wants to break out the spatula!

  4. You guys should see Shinmin Li’s cakes! Absolutely AMAZING! She was one of the judges for Top Chef: Just Desserts (season 1).

  5. The one with the cinema rolls and the one with the pillows…and the one with white and dark chocolate with strawberries … I can’t decide
