An Anchorman-Themed Baby Shower Works Every Time

anchorman-shower-4

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is one of the most quotable and thoroughly awesome comedies ever. So, when our good friend Aarti Mahtani Raman of AMR Catering was commissioned for an Anchorman-themed baby shower, she created a series of treats that are sort of a big deal.

Borrowing from Anchorman’s quote arsenal, Aarti used them as inspiration for her baked goods. From Butterscotch Blondie Bars — inspired by Ron Burgundy’s proclamation of scotch-love — to Sex Panther Cake Pops that are made from bits of brownie, so you know they’re good.

See more from the series below. And remember… milk is a good choice.

Red Velvet Corn Dogs Are The Best Of Both Worlds

If you enjoy the sophistication of red velvet, but want to keep it real in a ‘State fair’ kind of way, the Red Velvet Corn Dog is here to help.

Straight from the mind of The Vulgar Chef, the red batter-covered hot dog will make you look like a million bucks in front of your friends still eating ordinary yellow corn dogs.

That is until everyone gets to the same yummy core. Hot dogs bridge gaps, people.

This Billboard Made Entirely of Cake Is Good Advertising

kipling-cake-hed-2014

Billboards have been getting more and more creative recently. Unfortunately, they haven’t gotten any more edible. Britain-based Mr. Kipling and agency JWT London have teamed up to solve this real world problem, with a billboard made entirely of cake.

The outdoor ad, created to promote Mr. Kipling’s ‘Life is better with Cake’ campaign, consists of 13,360 individual confectionaries painstakingly applied over seven hours. The billboard was then slowly disassembled and eaten by hungry passersby. Real world problem, solved.

These Cute Little Bear Cookies Will Hug Your Nuts

cute-hugging-bear-cookies-maa-tamagosan-13

These nut-hugging Bear Biscuits are brought to us by Japanese baker Maa Tamagosan. They’re made simply by stamping out a few bear-shaped cookies and then wrapping their little arms around a nut of choice before baking.

It’s a shame that the adorable little bears will eventually be robbed of their precious nut, and have their heads bitten off. Enjoy.
