I was just about to show down and head to bed, sans late-night treat, when I decided to take one-last glance at my Twitter account. There, before my eyes, at the top of my Tweetdeck was a tweet too tempting to ignore- labeled "ummm I'm dying-check this out! Seriously a dream come true! Couture into cakes!" There, all in one twitter update, was two of my favorite things in the world- Cake and Couture- merged together into a fashionista's best/worst nightmare (thank you @ZaraTerez!!). I simply had to click the link, and what I found was better than I ever could have imagined!
BCakeNY's facebook fan page popped up on my screen, decorated with delicious photos of adorable cakes baked and brilliantly crafted into pieces of sweet couture goodness. The album, appropriately named "Couture Cakes", showcased the bakery's cake masterpieces-all replicas of fashion's most famous designer duds. The first pic was a 2-tier Christian Louboutin shoe and purse cake, detailed to perfection with the shoebox, dustbag, and even the receipt! The next was a Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 Grafitti Stephen Sprouse cake, fully equipped with LV pump, ipod nano, and Blackberry 8900- all edible! Other fab designs include a Juicy Couture gift box (with naughty little sugar panty), a Chanel No5 themed cake, a classic red soled Christian Louboutin patent pump (with embossed sole logo), a prada shoe, a little blue Tiffany box, and a Chanel quilted purse. I mean...I die.
BCakeNY can custome design your cake for any special occassion you'd like-baby showers, birthdays, graduations, corporate events, weddings, etc...and get this-they not only look amazing, they are actually yummy (unlike a lot of cakes that use that molding dough..ick..)Needless to say, I will for sure be scoping out/stalking BCakeNY until the next time I'm in the city (aka-this weekend I'm taking my friends on a mission). Oh, and they also make cookies..and CUPCAKES! ohhh i'm in trouble. And my guess is now you are too, since I can't imagine how you could not be pining for one of these pastries, asap. You musttt check out their website, blog, and facebook fan page. Become a fan, follow them, eat their cakes (or don't-since they're too beautiful to eat!). I can't wait until I get to experience my first real, literal, taste of couture from BCakeNy!! j'adore
