“He sees you when you’re sleeping. He knows when you’re awake. He knows if you’ve been bad or good, so be good, or he’ll crush your car with his gargantuan hands as you drive.”

I’m not usually into tinsel, but this is absolutely stunning. It looks like real shimmering icicles.

Courtesy of Cake Wrecks, here are some marvelous holiday cakes. I’m such a sucker for good fondant work.

I’ve never seen this adorable image on a cake before!

Love, love, LOVE this. I miss those old, big light bulbs I had on the tree growing up.

Brilliant…

A little postmodern and abstract:

Baked Ideas: Gingerbread Typewriter

Posted in christmas, food with tags , on December 20, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

My favorite gingerbread piece this year is a fine typewriter by Baked Ideas. Is it wonderful? Almost too beautiful to eat (but I’d manage, don’t worry).

Bonus treat! I used to have this book as a child, but can’t remember the name of the little worm . Does anyone know?

I think a series of all of the Haunted Mansion Grim Grinning Ghosts would make an excellent ornament collection.

This image is just perfect: happy tan lady with happy man, angry pale lady, pale lady’s partner not-so-inconspicuously eying her sunkissed rival. Don’tyou want a sun lamp now?

Amazing relationship advice from the folks at Dormeyer: use tears to manipulate your husband into purchasing household items. Maybe if I fake a sense of victimhood I can score a toaster this Christmas.

A man who knows what he wants (even the big Kewpie is looking at him like “Seriously, dude?”):

This drenched, freezing Yeti standing in a flood may be the most depressing card ever.

Shaq’s Favorite Easy Bake Oven Recipes

Posted in christmas, food, humor, video with tags , , , on December 12, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I never thought I’d hear anyone utter the phrase “when you invite your bros over for tea,” and it kind of made my day. This video shows Shaquille O’Neal being a great sport (pun intended?), for a great cause. Just wait for it, and let yourself be confused and entertained in the meantime.

World’s Largest Gummy Skull

Posted in food, products, skulls and skeletons with tags , , on December 11, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Know someone who is both skull obsessed AND a hardcore sugar junkie? Perhaps the World’s Largest Gummy Skull is a suitable holiday gift.

This hyper-realistic depiction of the human skull is made of solid gummy, weighs over 5 pounds, packs over 7,000 calories, and is 100% edible! Each highly-detailed and gluten-free World’s Largest Gummy Skull is handmade in the USA and is currently available in three flavors: red cherry, blue raspberry, and grape.

Cereal Killer Cafe

Posted in destinations, food, retro with tags , , on December 10, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

As terrible as I know it is for me, I have a major cereal addition. It’s basically the only thing I never get sick of. A new London restaurant, Cereal Killer Cafe offers a dazzling array of classic and rare cereals.

Twin brothers Alan and Gary Keery have designed a truly amazing tribute to crunchy, boxed morsels worldwide, offering over 60 types of cereal and 30 types of regular and alternative milk (rejoice, ye lactose intolerant!). All milk is offered on the side, so diners can control the exact amount of crunch they desire.

Rare and imported cereals (anyone remember URKEL-O’s? I don’t) are the same price as common ones, which is rather awesome.

The walls are decorated with vintage memorabilia…

And art made of…you guessed it: cereal.

The cafe also features sweet treats and novelties in keeping with their theme.

Keery brothers…please consider a NYC location!

If anyone across the pond stops by, please tell me your impressions of the place!
