100 Crazy Cakes and Cupcakes

From Famous Painter Pastries to Humiliation Cakes

— October 17, 2009 — Lifestyle
Why can’t we have our cake and eat it too? I’ll give you 100 reasons why you can. At least, this cluster filled with the craziest of cakes and cupcakes will. You may not have a birthday on the horizon, but putting on that apron and baking a cake for no good reason is a sure way to brighten up any day.

After clicking through this cluster, why not bring out that pan, some flour and eggs (and a helpful recipe since, clearly, I’m not the authority on cake ingredients) and enjoy a cake-baking session this weekend?
