The founder describes the project as being “an educational account about cakes” which is all that you need to know about how awesome their sense of humor is. Educational? Perhaps in terms of learning about the different shades and tastes of fear? Side note: imagine actually getting one of these cakes on your birthday.

Previously, Canadian cake maker and designer Darci, of Kake by Darci, shared her baking tips with Bored Panda.


"I would probably say the most common mistakes are wrong order of ingredients added in to the recipe. Very important for baking as it’s a science!" she said that baking requires care, attention, and meticulousness in order to get the very best results.

According to cake expert Darci, some of the biggest problems appear when someone doesn’t weigh the ingredients they use. What’s more, a lot of issues pop up when the baker over- and under-mixes the ingredients.


“All of these small factors can make or break the cake!" she told us.

In Darci’s opinion, overloading cakes with unnecessary details is something that’s best avoided. Otherwise, you might turn what’s otherwise a perfectly fine cake into something that looks plain bad.

"I prefer simple designs and simple details. I feel like you can have a beautiful cake and go overboard with too much—flowers, candy, colors, textures. It can be a fine line between too much and not enough."

Once you understand the rules of baking, you can then start breaking them and experimenting with the ingredients, Darci told us earlier.


"Baking is a science. Every ingredient has a purpose," Darci said. "Leaveners provide lift. Gluten/flours provide structure. Eggs [act as] binders. Liquid / oils [provide] moisture. Sugars [give] tenderness and sweetness,” she explained what the main ingredients do.

Meanwhile, pie artist Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin told us that there are certain chemical reactions that need to happen for pastry to become pastry, and for cake to become cake.


“If you alter certain variables (heat, time, acidity, etc.) you may get a result you aren’t thrilled with... That said, you may be pleasantly surprised!" she noted the pros and cons of experimenting with recipes.

"And what better way to learn, 'Oh! That’s what an egg does in this recipe' or, 'Oh! That’s why they say to chill the dough overnight first' than by jumping in and trying it? If you’ve got the time, and are cool with learning from failure (something I do all the time) tinker away!" she said that baking mistakes are learning opportunities.

But if you’re pressed for time or that oh-so-rare thing called patience, you should definitely stick to the baking recipe as-is. Don’t go changing anything if you need everything to go perfectly! Leave the experimentation for times when you can afford to mess up.
