As you know, I love to bake, and I am especially fond of cakes. I do it all–classic cakes, crazy cakes, Japanese cakes, chocolate cakes, wedding cakes (trauma). I love to come up with crazy combinations, that I try to master after tweaking the recipe over and over. Over the years, I’ve posted many of them here on Umamimart, such as…

The Bacon Cupcake: (May, 2009):

The American Cake, for when my friend got his citizenship (September, 2007):

And, of course, the infamous wedding cake disaster (March 2009):

I usually make a cake for friends’ birthdays as well. I am making a very special cake for a friend of mine for his birthday, and I have thought long and hard about what would suit him best. It will be pretty funny. Meanwhile, take a look at some of the birthday cakes I have made in the past:

Rice flour carrot cake with cream cheese frosting for a gluten free friend:

Yeah, I’ve made cakes. But brace yourself for one of the craziest and funniest cakes I will be posting next week. Here’s a hint:

At least this is how it will start out.

    Wow, is that how Barbie really looks? I thought she was more bendable vs. jointed.

    Looove! Can’t wait for next week. I think back with tears in my eyes to my 25th birthday which was Barbie themed with pink balloons, barbie plates, super gay fruitfilled layer cakes and more. I regret I didn’t wear a wig. And not having next week’s Yamahomo vs. Barbie surprise on my table!
