Extreme(ly) Cake
Does anyone else watch that “Ace of Cakes” show? The one with the EXTREME bakery in Maryland? You can tell it’s EXTREME because everyone is so hipster. Pink bangs! Piercings! Tattoos! Blow torches and chainsaws! Right now one of the cakemakers (is she Filipina?! She might be...) is emotionally distraught—she is crying; she cannot speak—because it is midnight, she has been working non-stop for 15 hours, and her “Fear the Turtle! Maryland Tarapin” cake, which is destined for a graduation party, keeps falling apart. It’s so hilariously sad, this situation. In the lexicon, it is referred to as a “caketastrophe.”
