Can cake cure writer’s block?


Can cake cure writer’s block? I put that question to the test recently after having a discussion about this major creativity killer. For nearly a month, writer’s block has crippled me. So a friend suggested that I write about something that fires me up; something I’m passionate about. My response, “Cake?”

While I was half-joking and being somewhat sarcastic, cake really does make me happy. Unfortunately, it only made my waistline expand. Since cake did not have an immediate affect on my writer’s block, I decided to decorate some cakes with messages and hand them out to people.

Here’s what I would write on a cake to:

Justin Bieber (that is not a chocolate-covered pretzel):


Ryan Gosling (get out your notebook and write this down):


Marvel Comics (the blonde bombshell must have a penis not boobs, thank you):


Dora the Explorer (not impressed that you’ve aged and ditched Boots):


The producers of the upcoming movie 50 Shades of Grey:


My family (who believes in mystical washing wenches and self-disposing garbage cans):

    Love how you cured writer’s block and the last one definitely is so true. Did you see the trailer that is trending right now 50 Shades movie? Seriously, can’t believe that is who is playing Christian Grey!!

    I think the cake for your family might have needed to be a full sheet cake in order to fit your message on. 🙂

    What worked for me is either getting some physical exercise to help alleviate some of the stress, or finding a way to blow off some steam and find myself again buried under all that SHIT that is stress and life. It’s not easy, and it does suck but you will come through it I promise!

    You definitely need a bigger cake for your family. I think you could totally sell these at Hannaford. 🙂
