Making a cake from a box isn’t that difficult, but if you don’t have the time or necessary ingredients on hand, there are other options. Cake batter in an aerosol can could be coming to shelves, but Cake in a Can is here now.
All you have to do to make The Food Ministry’s Cake in a Can is add water. The dessert bakes right in the can. You can choose between chocolate, Christmas, coffee, birthday, and wedding cake flavors. These would be great to keep on hand for special occasions and also for sugar emergencies and late night snacks.

If you happen to be a fan of Aperture Science Handheld Portal Devices and cake, then you’ll absolutely love this officially licensed Portal 2 baking apron. It features a cute companion cube on the front, as well as two deep blue and orange pockets. I guess if you put something in one pocket it will pop up in the other.
Oh, and never lie about cake. Never!

The image above looks so good that you’d think it’s a drawing, but it’s not. It’s actually a finished photograph of an epic Ralph Wiggum cake. It was designed by Freshly Squeez’d for Threadcakes (the annual contest that involves making cakes based on Threadless shirt designs). It took Kylie Mangles about five days to build the cake and it consists of red velvet, vanilla bean Swiss meringue buttercream, and some Rice Krispie treats that were used to shape a few of the trickier bits.
If you love this cake, then head on over to Threadcakes and cast your vote to make it a winner!

Don’t throw away that orange rind! YouTube user NorthSurvival has revealed that you can use it as a cupcake tin. He mixed up a batch of chocolate cake then used the rind to hold it and cook the cake in the coals of a campfire. This is a great idea for your next campfire cookout but you could try it in a conventional oven as well. Good luck trying to peel it in a perfect cup though.

The galaxy far, far away is full of risks and dangerous creatures. One such creature is the Sarlacc, but Kathleen of Yummy Crumble makes the Sarlacc Pit look scrumptious in her bundt cake recipe. The cake is a caramel flavor and is drizzled with homemade caramel sauce. Madeleines and buttercream teeth form the Sarlacc’s mouth. I’d willingly jump into this Pit!

If being turned into a cake means a series has made it, then Star Wars Rebels is all set. The series has only been airing on Disney XD for about a month, but it already has fans who adore the characters and story (myself included). This cake was presumably made for one such fan by Fuget Pasta. The cake features the show’s logo and sculpted versions of the entire crew of the Ghost from Hera to Chopper. I just hope the baker didn’t add any icing that acts like Sabine’s explosive paint.

This cake created by Black Cherry Cake Company turns Murray the Mummy from Hotel Transylvania into a tasty treat. It looks just like the animated character and it even comes with its own special effects since his eyes light up and glow an eerie green.

Supernatural is crossing the 200 episode milestone this season. The show’s been on for ten years, and the Winchester brothers have survived death, countless monsters and each other. Things always change, but the trusty Impala, a.k.a. Dean’s baby, is still with them and gets them from town to town. It’s only appropriate that a party celebrating the 200th episode featured a big ‘ol Impala cake.
