Ah! The cuteness of this cake is too much. What a fun idea. How is it done, you ask?

This typography cake is the work of Victoria Hudgins of A Subtle Revelry. To make the letters, she used edible dough, which I have to think is something akin to fondant, and cut out the letters using cookie cutters. Then she poured half of the cake batter into a cake pan, placed all the letters in the batter (spelling out ‘YAY’) and covered them with the rest of the batter. Bake and it’s done. So easy!

So many possibilities here. You could spell names, or a gift, maybe a secret inside joke. (Which would be a double inside joke, in that the inside joke is inside a cake – pow!)

What would you spell in your typography cake?
