Even Abe Lincoln is freezing his butt off

Abraham Lincoln cake made out of gingerbread and with earmuffs and gloves because he's cold in the winter


I can’t say that I have seen many creative works using the Lincoln Memorial, but this one is kind of cute. As if the earmuffs and mittens didn’t dress it up enough, they really put the icing on the cake (cookie?) with the blue bowtie.

As for the reason for this strange sculpture, it was for a benefit for City Harvest. Patti Paige used Lincoln’s favorite food, gingerbread, to create a cookie sculpture and display it at Le Parker Meridien hotel in New York City. I think she did a pretty fantastic job, too.

What does snake taste like?

I’m pretty sure this counts as the most realistic cake I’ve seen. We’ve seen a lot of lookalikes, but it’s usually pretty obvious that it’s not “the real thing.” In this case, it’s pretty freakin’ close, don’t you think?

(And thanks for passing this my way, Dave. :D)

Do you want a gap between your thighs or cake?

"Do you want hipbones or pizza? A gap between your thighs or cake? Collarbones or sweets? A flat stomach or soda?" The top pictures show awesome bodies but then the bottom shows a silly person with soda, pizza, chips, and candy instead,  proving they would rather the food.  

Yeah, bring on the cake.

I know a lot of women are obsessed with wanting a flat stomach or are mortified that their thighs touch…

Actually, as a quick side note: I didn’t realize until two years ago that your thighs are apparently not supposed to touch. I thought that was only something that happened with anorexics, stick thin models, or Asians.

But no, apparently white chicks like myself are supposed to have a gap there, too. I have obviously been living under the guise of my Southern cooking roots. Who knew?

So anyway, yes, I understand why some people are so obsessed with being thinner or more toned or more perfectly shaped. I get it. Really, I do.

But if you show me a picture of a flat stomach and try to use that as some sort of thinspiration to motivate me to work out? It ain’t happening. I’m going to drool over the cake or cookie alternative and tell you that if you want to go sweat your butt off, go for it, but I’ll happily add another slice to mine for now. ;)
