File Under: Yes, It Exists! I’m not one to worry much about counting calories, so I would likely never have even looked for something called Skinny Syrups, but this was a gift — and what a gift at that! The friend who gifted this pretty pink bottle of Jordan’s Birthday Cake-flavored Syrup to me knows that I adore anything that has to do with Birthday Cake (or the flavor thereof) and the fact that it is my favorite color is, as they say, the icing on the cake!

I have started sweetening my morning coffee with two teaspoons of this stuff and, man, is it ever scrumptious. And it has zero calories! Anyway, you can put this syrup on or in anything that you want to sweeten without adding any additional calories but instead adding the flavor of Birthday Cake. Win Win!

Yes, It Exists: Jello Birthday Cake with Clowns

Rob and Monica are a fun couple I know from the FaceBook. They enjoy first wave British Punk Rock, shopping for vintage housewares and collecting mid-Century design. For Rob’s birthday this past week, Monica presented her true love with the dessert pictured above, which Rob described as a “Jello Cake with Clowns.”

“It really was not cake,” Monica clarified, “it was just Jello with Redi Whip on top! I used a vintage red Pyrex bowl and vintage clowns (Rob likes clowns) and a vintage birthday cake sign.” Who would not want a girlfriend who would make them such a fun and personalized dessert? Monica further explained that she made the Jello because Rob already had cake at work, and then they had more cake the next day at her sisters. And, as they say, there is always room for Jello.

Okay, judging from the multiple layers this is probably a Wedding cake, dontcha think? It may be a Birthday cake, but whatever the occasion, it is the Greatest Cake Ever in the Universe of All Time, because The Beatles! I bet it tastes delicious also, but, honestly, it is almost too cool to eat!

Images seen here of this one-of-a-kind Slayer Birthday Cake were posted on the Facebook page of my friend, Rob. This cake was designed by Jessa Blavatsky, a lady who obviously knows her Metal. Awesome Slayer Cake celebrates the birthday of Jimmy Duff, owner of the Heavy Metal bar Duff’s in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Clearly, what we have here is a case of Too Much Metal for One Cake!

Aldridge’s work is highly controlled with a cinematic effect. His Wikipedia page cites his influences as film directors Derek Jarman, David Lynch and Fellini and the photographer Richard Avedon, as well as the psychedelic graphic design of his father, Alan Aldridge.

Aldrige’s photography is filled with glamorous, beautiful women, whose perfect appearance and blank expression could be interpreted as passivity and ambivalence.

Aldridge, however, prefers to define his women as in a state of contemplation, so that we are asked imagine their inner lives. The surreal, David Lynchian context of his photos telegraph the possibility that these dream-like scenarios could just as easily transform into nightmares.

Happy-Birthday
