Sunday Sweets: So Stinkin' Cute

Sunday, January 30, 2011

This week we're featuring some of the sweetest, cutest, most adorable, lovable, um... [consulting thesaurus] darling, bewitching, and fetching baby animal cakes you ever will see. Why? Well, if you must know, I'm feeling a bit sensitive this week.

This is john, by the way.

So, let me just get my box of tissues and we'll do this thing. Starting with Jen's favorite:

Found at the 2008 Orlando ICES Convention; baker unknown.

The hand-painted shading here is amazing. And the animals are adorable. And the lion isn't eating the zebra or the giraffe. So it's a win-win-win.

This cake is slightly more realistic:

Sub'd by Hilda F., and made by The Sweetest Thing Cake Studio

See how the monkey and giraffe cower in fear as the mighty tiger stalks his prey? Can you feel the tension? Can. You. FEEL IT?!?! No?

Maybe it's just me.

And now... sweet sleeping dragon!

Sub'd by Amelie B. and made by her sister Helene

Awwww. Okay. *sniff* I'm all verklempt. *sniff* I promised myself I wouldn't cry...

[blowing nose]

Hey! Look! Pandas!

Sub'd by Aljona and made by KralleCakes

And not just any pandas; these are the rare Russian Nesting Pandas. The mostly eat eucalyptus leaves and borscht.

Preeeesenting, the sweetest giraffe ever!

Literally. I think the lack of neck really adds to the adorabletude, don't you?

And because I have an inordinate affection for tigers:

Sub'd by Jade D. and made by Theresa Gue

So. Cool. Jen says this reminds her of some Lisa Frank folders she had in middle school. Which she claims is a huge compliment. So there.

And you know what else has stripes? (I am the king of segues)

Sub'd by Brenda B., and made by Lilo Taart

I'm digging the bow and the vintage 20's hair part. Just dandy!

And speaking of bows. (I'm on a roll!)

By Aletha B.


And get this: this is Aletha B.'s first cake. Yes, really! Mike, Duff, and Bronwen better watch out, 'cuz Aletha B.'s coming, and she's got a Cthulhu.

And speaking of... cake. (Okay, that one wasn't my best work.)

By Ann N.

Adorable. And hip. Oh. Yeah.

Another of Jen's favorites:

Sub'd by Orna G., and made by Odelia

Hand-painted rosebuds, cuddly teddy bears, and a miniature cake on cake? I can bearly stand it!

And finally, for your viewing pleasure, allow me to present...

a unicorn with a comb-over:

Sub'd by Elizabeth A., and made by Sachi Swick

You're welcome.

I'm amused to see, on the Odelia cake picture, that there is a "Curlz"-like font for Hebrew.

Not sure why that amuses me, but it does!

Paul, Kaci and Emersen! said...

The Zooborns for babies! If I don't win it, I'm probably going to buy it anyhow!

Oh who am I kidding, I'm buying one for every little kid I know! :)

Cindy and Ted said...

I just adore this website, and Sunday Sweets is my favorite. I should be in bed but I have to check it out before I can sleep!

I think the pandas are my favorites, but it's so hard to pick, so I won't.

Aunt LoLo said...

1. My kids would adore either book. Woohoo!

2. Those pandas? In Hong Kong, they were called "pa dei hung." It meant...the panda that lies on the floor. LOL He was one of the characters that you could find on keychains, pencils, notebooks, pencil cases...anything sold in a stationary/school shop. I haven't seen him in ages! He was one of my favorites....

Mama Wild Bear said...

I may be too late but here's a comment anyway. I actually had to Google Chthulu and none of the results were as cute as that cake. Love to win the adult book.

Jamie said...

*want* ZooBorn for older peeps! :)

Shirley said...

Ooohh! My daughters would LOVE the first book.

Arlene said...

Oh wow that teddy bear cake is incredible! I thought at first they were stuffed animals until I realized they really looked super authentic. Must have that cake for my birthday lol.

Edith Salvatore said...

Darn! I missed the random picking window. :( We moved into our new house this weekend and just got our internet...and the first thing I did was come check out the Sunday Sweets. They've got me thinking about what we should do for our triplets' first birthday in seven that enough time to plan???

Herouth said...

What, no epcot about the way John spelled "Chthulu" instead of "Cthulhu"? Or is everybody dyslexic? Or is it an on-going joke which I'm missing?

john (the hubby of Jen) said...



All fixed.

Ladyhawke82 said...

The panda is actually a Korean character. I can't think of his name right now.
