Cake Full of Yarn

You may think nothing exciting happens between the two meccas of elite food — Brooklyn, NYC (BS) and Mt. Pleasant, DC (gansie) — but, apparently there’s cake and fame in York, Pennsylvania.

I just got an email from my old housemate, Hickey, about some very exiting happenings. Her boyfriend’s grandmother recently turned ninety and the fam threw her a party to celebrate this major accomplishment. Georgia loves knitting so they decided to combine the great art of the stitch and America’s other favorite hobby, eating. And as everyone who steals watches cable TV knows…there’s only one place to call for the greatest of all great cakes – Charm City Cakes, aka Ace of Cakes.

Okay, so I don’t know that much about the Baltimore based Ace of Cakes TV show, except it takes air time away from the more lavish and “Hamptons” Barefoot Contessa and the more sophisticated and “Napa” Michael Chiarello.

But, I will soon become an avid watcher because, and I quote from a witness: “Last minute they decided to make it the featured cake of an episode and came and filmed the party. Here is the cake..I was amazed. It was a marbled cake – moist and tasty! Supposedly it is will air in February.”

Happy Birthday, Georgia!

    That is brilliant. Can we see pictures of the cake cut or has this been preserved for an art gallery?

    I watch “Ace of Cakes” religiously, and each episode features three or four of the week’s workload that are showstoppers. This cake was clearly one of the best from the two seasons I’ve been a fan. It must hurt to cut a cake like that!

    OMG………
    I thought that was a REAL basket with wool.
    I thought when I read the post on Ravelry it was like a nappy cake lol!
    I was thinking it was very strange to give someone such a messy basket.
    I have seen many beautifully created cakes, but this tops the lot.
    Aren’t enough adjectives to describe it.
    Respect!!
