Could you imagine if a man had done this???
This is from the Toronto Star...
After Trish Ally booked the hotel suite and invited the guests, she wanted to order a cake for a friend who was going through a divorce.Thanks to Jeremy for sending me this article.
"He turned out to be a big jerk," she told Toronto baker Karen Wielonda. "Do you have any ideas?"
That's when Wielonda, a specialist in off-the-wall shaped cakes, came up with the idea of a voodoo-doll confection, complete with marzipan pins and needles.
"I think I had tweezers, too," Wielonda says with a laugh.
Ally decided to throw the divorce party "as a new way to express being single." The cake was just "a cute idea, something different" to do.
"They didn't want to see his face, but they wanted to see this hideous gold grill he used to wear," the baker says of the former husband. Wielonda set to work, and the result was a two-dimensional cake in the shape of a man, with a paper bag covering his head save for a small cutout showing a gold tooth decoration. All around were the marzipan weapons.
