The cake museum was founded in 1994 by Frances Kuyper, a vaudeville performer turned cake decorator extraordinaire who was "known for her pioneering use of the airbrush," according to the Los Angeles Times. In fact, as fellow member of the International Cake Exploration Societé Carolyn Mathewson elaborated, "She was the first to airbrush a cake without blowing holes in the frosting."

That's a Lifetime movie waiting to happen.

This was NOT a triumph.

Submitter is being so sincere right now.

We are doing what we must, because we can.

"Do you know what happens to a butter-based frosting after six decades in a poorly-ventilated English basement?"

The museum was doing well, but then tragedy struck, in the form of a particularly exuberant visitor.

She was a lot like you.

Maybe not quite so heavy.

"I don't want these cakes to be thrown out. We have a lot of history in these. They cannot be thrown out."

What history?

Take 360° pictures of them, and throw them out already. The photography students can do it. For free.

Might have worked had she worn a short skirt and a long jacket.

My mother-in-law will happily help.

By eating them all.

She died in 2010, but she's still there. She's STILL THERE.

Norman has offered to keep the cake museum open.

But it will have to relocate to the Bates Motel.

FTA: When Frankie passed away and Frances moved to a Boyle Heights retirement community, its administrators allowed her to relocate the museum to its basement, where she continued to receive visitors and conduct tours and demonstrations by appointment until her death in July 2010.


You know what what else is down there in that basement? Tell you what, it's only a new jumpsuit. A very trendy designer jumpsuit from France. Down there. Which is exactly your size. And if it's a bit baggy, we got a tailor down there as well who can take it in for you. And what's this, a lovely handbag? And the three portal device! It's all down there!

That's way too upbeat for lifetime; wait till she marries a guy that stuffs her into a sack and then beats her with a bamboo cane.

I spent at least three minutes trying to work a reference in before giving up. But you . . . you went the distance.

So, people told the Cake Store we're 'sick of you'.

Mmmmm, delicious cake!

From the lspace wiki:
On the theme of the Dwarf Bread Museum, there is a museum in Paris, commemorating the privations of the city's prolonged siege by the Prussians in 1870, which preserves, as good as new after 141 years, samples of the sorts of bread that were being baked in Paris at the height of the siege. Some of these might have been hopelessly contaminated by having flour in them, but wood shavings, sawdust and the occassional bit of gravel, brick-dust and pulverised stone feature heavily. These examples of extreme bakery are kept under glass in controlled conditions, but are as good as the day they were first forged.

Sounds like LA.

We need to cut costs. Do we 1) cut down on all the administrators of administration; 2) Not send admins & their families to Hawaii or Bermuda for seminars; 3) cut back on athletics across the board; 4) ask people to help fund their own retirements.

Well, duh, the only answer is 5: cut the program that trains people for real jobs.

1 cup of butter
2 cups of sugar
3 cups of flour
4 eggs

+ 1 Tb baking powder, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 cup milk, and a dash of salt.

All else is talk.
