That was until I beheld the fantastic creation at the current must-read blog, Cake Wrecks.
Just think of the layers – of sponge, and of meaning – in this stunner. Its a cake of a video game of a lego parody of a film of a comic book.
Stuff like this never fails to delight. It shows just how niche human interests can be, and just how skillful people can become at those niche interests. As Cake Wrecks author Jen points out, the attention to detail is phenomenal.
