Cake Shoes By Chris Campbell!

Please don’t eat these shoes! Creating works that are very similar to the art of contemporary sculptor Scott Hove, designer Chris Campbell has expertly painted and sculpturally enhanced dozens of pairs of Jimmy Choux shoes so that they appear to be decorated with the accoutrements of a fancy bakery cake! Apart from his light up shoes line-up from last fall, these are now my favorite. Clever and beautiful, but definitely not edible!

Cake Flats

Chris sells his visually delectible creations at his own shop, The Shoe Bakery which appears to be located in Orlando Florida, but who knows. With prices that are very reasonable at just $60 for a pair of flats to $200 for the high heels – I’d say these are not only a fashion bargain but a unique investment for art collectors as well!

The Cake of Love! Happy Valentines Day!

Rainbow Christmas Wreath Cake: Make It

Wreath Cake

Ingredients

1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® White Cake Mix

Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box

Red and Green food color

1 container (12 oz) Betty Crocker® Whipped fluffy white frosting

Betty Crocker® Decorating Decors® Red, Green and White Candy Sprinkles

Directions

  • Heat oven to 325°F. Generously grease 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with shortening or cooking spray. Make cake mix as directed on box, using water, oil and eggs. Pour half of the batter into medium bowl; set aside. Divide the other half of batter equally between 2 small bowls. (You will be left with 3 bowls of batter.) Add red food color to 1 of the small bowls and mix well. Add green food color to the second small bowl and mix well.
  • Pour half of the white batter from medium bowl into cake pan. Carefully pour red batter over white batter in pan. Carefully pour green batter over red batter. Then pour remaining white batter from medium bowl over the top. Do not mix the colors.
  • Bake as directed on box until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Turn pan upside down onto cooling rack placed over a cookie sheet; remove pan. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Place cake on serving plate.
  • Divide frosting between 2 small microwavable bowls. Microwave 1 bowl on High about 5 to 10 seconds; mix well with spoon until smooth enough to drizzle. With the spoon, drizzle white frosting back and forth around the whole cake in a striping pattern until you use all of the frosting (allow some frosting to drip down onto plate in middle of cake, if desired).
  • Microwave second bowl of frosting; stir in a few drops of green food color. Drizzle over cake, scattering back and forth in the same type of striping pattern. Decorate with sprinkles. Let stand until frosting is set before serving.

Enjoy!

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!

A Fan/Facebook friend of my pal Neal posted this awesome cake photo on his FB page for his recent Birthday, and I stole it because it is rules. The drums, cymbals and hardware all appear to be made of edible fondant, which tastes like ass but looks pretty cool.

Happy 66th Birthday, Alice Cooper Drummer Neal Smith!

Brother Jimmy’s BBQ Announces New Desserts & Boozy Beverages

Brother Jimmys Dessert Menu

No matter how full I am from eating a meal, 90% of the time, I want dessert. Because that is how roll.

Apple Crumb Pies Etc
Red Velvet Cake (Top Tier) and Apple Crumb Pie (Lower Tier)

Brother Jimmy’s BBQ is a place that will likely leave you feeling very satisfied after a meal of their ribs, chicken and other specialties – because their food is amazing. But on future visits you might have a more challenging time saying no to one of their home baked sweet treats, because they have just created a New Dessert Menu on which every pie, cake and ice cream creation is delicious. I know, because I tasted everything.

Earlier this week, Brother Jimmy’s hosted a fun Dessert Tasting Party to give bloggers a chance to sample and preview items from the new menu, which also features an original selection of “Boozy Beverage” dessert cocktails. Here are some photos from our sugar-fueled evening.

Cherry Rhubarb Pie Float

The Cherry Rhubarb Pie Float contains Rhubarb Tea Liquor, Cheerwine Cherry Soda and Rum Ice Cream. Very sweet and very strong, if you like Dessert but also like to be wasted, this drink is for you!

Pecan Pies

There are two new pies on the menu. The Pecan Pie tastes as good as it looks, so if you are a fan you are going to love what they serve at Brother Jimmy’s. The Apple Crumb Pie, pictured further up top, is completely delicious and was quite clearly a favorite of many at the event. The crumble top is the perfect sweetness and texture, and the tender crust is loaded with delicious sweet-tart sliced apples. Better than Mom’s!

Red Velvet Cakes from Brother Jimmy's

I am a little bit of a Red Velvet Cake snob but this is the best Red Velvet Cake I’ve ever had. These are just tasting sized cakes but what you’ll get a is a big chunk of three layer cake that is moist and light and frosted to perfection with yummy creamcheese icing.

Ice Cream Sandwiches

These are Ice Cream Sandwiches from Melt Bakery, who deliver them directly from their freezer to Brother Jimmy’s. If you’ve ever had an Ice Cream Sandwich from the Coolhaus truck, these are very similar, with a selection of different types of cookies matched with interesting Ice Cream combinations. I had one of the pink ones you see in the above photo, which was a Sugar Cookie stuffed with a Berry Ice Cream.

Hot Fudge Brownie Sundae

This is a Brownie Sundae that they made fresh for each of us and brought to our tables after I was already engorged with sweets, so we had no choice but to eat it. The Brownie is served warm and topped with Butterscotch Swirl Ice Cream and Jimmy’s Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce. It was Insane.

These new desserts are price right as well. The Melt Bakery Ice Cream Sandwiches are $5 and all other Desserts are priced at just $7 each. The Boozy Beverages are $7 and $8. Be sure to add one of these delicious desserts or beverages to your next dining experience at any Brother Jimmy’s location, and tell them The Worley Gig sent you!
