Well hello, darlings! As promised, I’m kicking off a new feature where I can showcase all of YOUR hard work, wahooooo! Thanks to all of our member submissions, we’ve got 15 incredi-freakin-ble cakes to show you this month.

Oh and before you dig into this post, you might want to put the cake fork down and finish the bite you just took because, well, some of our members have some seriously funny facts to share about themselves! You don't want your food on your lap... just sayin. 

Gotta say, we got some massive talent here... take a look!
