Not sure what’s cooler, the verisimillitude of tallulahblue’s cake or the fact that it’s designated for a youngster named Atticus. As if the legacy of that name weren’t enough to guarantee success, the birthday boy even resembles Max! Some people are born lucky.

New additions to the growing category of WTWTA desserts! The treats in the first row have some interesting photographic action going on, as well as a pleasingly generous amount of frosting.

Cupcakes on row #2 manage to recreate Sendak’s color palette with impressive fidelity.

Cookies on row #3 come courtesy of the appropriately-named Night Kitchen Bakery. Carol looks so sweet!

Bake on, bakers. And send us photos!

Q: What do you get when you combine modular toys with Frank Lloyd Wright?

A: LEGO Fallingwater, a recreation of Wright’s 1934 masterwork of modernism in Mill Run, Pennsylvania!

Anyone born after 1950 is likely to have played with the colorful Danish building bricks at some point in his or her youth. The LEGO corporate motto––Kun det bedste er godt nok or “Only the best is good enough,”––certainly applies to their 811-piece model of Fallingwater, which underwent 14 design concepts and includes special sections that slide out, as well as representations of the surrounding river and trees that are so crucial to the landmark’s aesthetic.

Finally! A toy designed for architects, highly-focused children, and highly-focused child architects.

Among other materials deployed in the image are mango, kiwi, celery, a moon made of lemon and, get ready, a wolf suit made of mozzarella cheese.
