Woman: Having sex with him was the same as eating a slice of plain Wonder bread while looking in the window of a Crate and Barrel. –York & 70th
So, anyone who wants to revisit the subject, let's discuss--and if it's old news, pass right along the ever-running stream.
Have you guys seen that NY Times article about a family that learned to communicate with their autistic son Owen through Disney movies? If not, GO READ IT. Best thing I've seen online in ages.
And in the spirit of that sweet story, I bring you... THE SUNDAY SWEETS DISNEY MOVIE MARATHON!!
Let's kick it off with a few classics, shall we?
Cinderella's helpers really did have great taste; her original pink dress just doesn't get enough love these days, which is why I especially love this cake! The trailing "threads" and blue beads are a great touch.
And who here remembers the Aristocats?
Ok, I admit it: I honestly don't remember ever watching this movie. o.0 I wonder if it's on Netflix? Anyhoo, regardless, these characters look like collectible porcelain statues - and that bridge on the bottom tier? AMAZING.
Here's a newer classic, and a personal favorite:
(By Richard's Cakes)
Take a sec to really look at all those details, guys. The little bunnies! The moss on the stones! The individual shingles! I've got a dream, and it involves that tower under a big glass dome on my desk.
This next cake's badness level is at ZERO:
Yep, any alien experiment bringing me a cupcake is A-Ok in my book.
(Also digging Stitch's lil' nose wrinkle.)
Timon and Pumba, on the other hand, have a slightly more questionable offering:
(By Cake Central User Yummy-Mummy Cake Creations)
Bug cake? Gee, guys, you shouldn't have.
Another classic movie, paired some truly ingenious cake design:
(By Atelié Kero Bolo)
(And thanks to @EchoGalfas for helping me track down the world's most elusive cake!)
Can we talk about that globe encircling the apple? And the evil witch sculpted over the glass? GENIUS, I tell you. And that's not even mentioning the hand-painted cottage, or the 3D sculpted Dwarves nestled in roses!
That's a touch act to follow, but I think this Frozen beauty just might manage:
At what point does your brain just short-out from the staggering amount of talent in these cakes? 'Cuz mine's long gone, and we still have four more cakes to go!
When John and I visited Disneyland, one of my favorite parts of the park was the giant whale's mouth you sail through during the Storybook Land Canal Boats. It's based on Monstro from Pinocchio, of course, but I never thought I'd see him in cake form!
(By Le Torte di Anny)
As impressive as Monsto is, I've gotta point out those waves, too. Frothy perfection.
For obvious reasons, I have a certain... affinity... with Ralph here:
(By The Royal Bakery)
Nice to see he hasn't wrecked this cake, though!
(Though you must admit, a Wreck-It-Ralph Cake Wreck would be deliciously ironic.)
I'm going to end with two movies that were big players in that article I mentioned - movies that first showed Owen's family just how strongly he resonated with these characters.
First, the queen of Poor Unfortunate Souls herself:
(By Christian Giardina)
Took me a second to spot them, but Flotsam and Jetsam are in there, too!
And finally, I couldn't find an Iago cake to feature, so instead, here's the most jaw-dropping Aladdin masterpiece I have ever seen:
(By 1001 Tort)
And for all I know, Iago IS in there; there are so many tiny details, I'm still finding new things to look at!
Well, I don't know about you guys, but I'm seriously jonesing for some Disney movies now. That, and cake, of course. ;) Hope you guys have a great Sunday!
P.S. - There are so many great Disney cakes out there that I already have a second movie marathon post in the works - so if you have a Sweet to nominate, feel free to share your links in the comments or over on the Cake Wrecks Facebook page!
Blonde: I had to spend 10,000 fucking dollars to get my boobs fixed. They were, like, all puckered and withered. –43rd and Madison

Stuff I've Started Vidding
--Hannibal vid, s1 overview. Stalled the week before the s2 premiere, partly because that's when I finished the part I desperately wanted to vid and subsequently lost motivation to finish the last minute and a half. If someone could tell me they're interested in seeing a finished product for this, that'd be great.
--Potential Premiere vid for this year's VVC. I've put ACTUAL EFFORT into avoiding the kind of tech!fail I had the last time I premiered! However, there is zero fandom for my source--I don't even consider myself fannish about it, not to my own, classical definition--which means my attention keeps wandering to things I'm more actively into.
Stuff I've Started Writing
--Redpath (working title) (nothing to do with sugar). Original fic. Stalled because the amount of story involved/anticipated length of the end result is actively psyching me out.
--WWI thing. Also original. Mired in research and general malaise.
Stuff I Want To Write But Haven't Been Sufficiently Inspired To Start
--Something about Dean Winchester and the Mark of Cain. I'm stumped on how to make Mark!fic different from Hell!fic (because the show's version of Cain and Abel, applied to Dean, basically just takes the thematic and emotional effects of him selling his soul and going to Hell for Sam and makes them literal and physical), and I anticipate I shall remain so 'til the show gives me something about the Mark--ANYTHING ABOUT THE MARK--to work with.
--Something something Cas, possibly with a side of Dean/Cas. I MISS THEM. But I have no in, here; with the show's complete disinterest in making Cas's plotline have anything whatsoever to do with his character/emotional interiority (as it seems they would rather just make stuff happen around him and to him and not investigate HIM hardly at all), there's been nothing that's hooked me since he ate someone else's grace. And I already wrote that fic.
