This Simpsons-Themed Kwik-E-Mart Cake Is the Perfect Tribute
Themed cakes are the most delicious way to honor and celebrate someone's fandom. From Game of Thrones to Harry Potter, every show or film with a large fanbase has been immortalized in creative layers of yeast and fondant, including the classic cartoon The Simpsons. Instead of going for the obvious house or family-themed cake, a bakery in Manchester, England called The Clever Little Cupcake Company recently paid tribute to another favorite location from the show: Apu's Kwik-E-Mart.
The cake is a detailed recreation of the convenience store, with dual pay phones, an "El Barto" tagged dumpster, and empty boxes completing the scene. Bakery owner Amanda Mumbray also created characters for the cake, including Kwik-E-Mart owner Apu Nahasapeemapetilon holding a Slurpee, Homer Simpson with a pile of doughnuts, and Barney Gumble sitting behind the trash with a bottle of Duff beer. Mumbray's son posted an image of the cake to reddit, and over the weekend fans of the show and awesome desserts helped push it to the front page.
