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. Cllearly, what we have here is a case of Too Much Metal for One Cake!

Fashion Photographer Miles Aldridge is currently showing a selection of his Technicolor dream photography, I Only Want You to Love Me, at Steven Kasher Gallery. We declare that this is a Must See exhibit!

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

Mallick Williams & Co Presents Food For Thought By Lindsey de Ovies


Cruel Birthday By Lindsey de Ovies

Artist Lindsey de Ovies worked over the course of eleven years sculpting the works that make up Food For Thought, which opened last night at Mallick Williams & Co Gallery. Both absurdly humorous and subtly disturbing, de Ovies sculptures of anthropomorphic raw chickens, nail-studded Birthday cakes and oversized pharmaceuticals delicately displayed on cake trays represent the artist’s turmoil with regard to various dysfunctional family relationships. The fact that many of the most stressful family gatherings take place around the holiday banquet table is no accident. And being that we’re already less than a week away from the official holiday season kick off here in the states, it’s surely the perfect time to check out this exhibit!


Bon Bons

Food For Thought by Lindsey de Ovies will be on Exhibit Through January 18th 2012, at Mallick Williams & Co. Gallery, Located at 150 11th Avenue (between 21st and 22nd Streets), New York, New York 10011.

Five Piece Drumkit Cake


 
While the cake pictured above lacks in the attention to detail that you see in This Cake, I like that it has a proper kick drum and is set up a bit more like an actual kit. It probably tastes pretty good, too!

Lil Wayne Birthday Cake

This Birthday cake in the shape and likeness of rapper Lil Wayne’s head was created for the 14th birthday of Ireland Baldwin (daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger), back in October of 2009. I just found it today after Googling “Rock Star Cakes” hoping to uncover something as cool as this. I’m not a fan of Lil Wayne’s “music” or anything, but I do think this cake looks amazing. Lil Wayne’s dreads are cleverly fashioned from licorice and his sunglasses are made from modeling chocolate, but based on what is obviously the photo on which the cake was designed (below) I think they could have put more bling in his grill. I’m not sure why there is a name tag (Bandaid?) on his face that says “Wade.” Maybe someone can explain that to me in the comments. I’d like to credit the bakery of origin, but I couldn’t find the name anywhere online, though I did learn that they are located in Beverly Hills, which makes sense.
