Last month, I posted photos of my friends Mark and Leslie’s triumphant R2-D2 cake, and I am happy to report that in the time since, the tasty dessert has become an Internet sensation. The story has been picked up by the Los Angeles Times as well as various news and radio outlets in Arizona, Boston, New Zealand, and Norway; not to mention such websites as Great White Snark, Fark, StumbleUpon, Slashfood, and, I’m happy to report, the official Star Wars blog at (ooooh)
Now, I’m not writing this just to toot my own horn (although, I rarely pass up an opportunity to do just that). No, I’m writing because I want to thank Mark and Leslie for giving my site such a huge traffic boost, and furthermore, since the whole point of the original post was to give their new bakery exposure, I’m super excited to say that as of yesterday, their cake has been viewed (on my site alone) by over 100,000 different people and counting! If you’re in the NY area, be sure to check them out and tell them I sent you. Here’s the link:
