Expert Baker Trolls Donald Trump With Cakes That Use His Own Words

Brooklyn baker Kat Thek is the brainchild behind Troll Cakes, a new bakery/detective agency that specializes in turning trolls’ mean internet comments into delicious cakes.

But it’s Thek’s “Tiny Hands Special” ― meant for President Trump ― that’s got our attention. This “bigly satisfying” deal means that for only $ 30, you can get one of Trump’s tweets or comments printed on a cake and sent straight to the White House. 

Below is an example of some of Trump’s comments paraphrased from an Associated Press interview on a Troll Cake: 

“It would be a tremendous, terrific mistake to deprive our nation’s noisiest troll of his incredibly deserved Troll Cakes,” Thek told HuffPost via email last week. “Our ‘Tiny Hands Special’ has been well received but it’s also gotten us asked if we’re skirting the line of terrorism. Here’s where we land on that: if putting the president’s exact words into icing on a cake is considered an act of terror, the problem is not the cake.” 

She added, “However, if the White House no longer wishes to receive Troll Cakes, we’re ready to reroute shipments to Mar-a-Lago. We are hopeful that the State Department will include Troll Cakes as a dining option in their next Mar-a-Lago ad.” 

“We’d also like to note that Trump’s decision to incorporate a cake description into his account of the recent Syrian missile strike (it was chocolate and ‘the most beautiful’) was not a sponsored Troll Cakes promotion,” Thek said jokingly. 

If you’d like to just take on a regular troll, there’s a $ 35 option in which the company will bake chocolate chip brownie cake, decorate it with frosting, sprinkles and the comment and then ship it to the troll’s home or work address. If you don’t know where the troll lives, the price goes up to $ 60. 

That means someone’s hateful comment like “Crash in a plane” would be turned into a yummy masterpiece like this. Eat it and weep, trolls: 

Internet comment –> Troll Cake Delivery included @ trollcakes.com #trollcakes

A post shared by Kat Thek (@kat_thek) on

Thek also told HuffPost about coming up with the concept of Troll Cakes and revealed the cake she recently made for one of Amy Schumer’s trolls. 

When did you start Troll Cakes? How did you come up with the concept? 

The troll that really sparked the whole enterprise was on Dolly Parton’s Facebook page. There was something simultaneously infuriating and hilarious about seeing somebody try to bully Dolly Parton. I mean, who would do that? And is the goal to hurt Dolly’s feelings? She’s a 71-year-old millionaire who grew up in a one-room cabin and now wears sequined jumpsuits — a poorly spelled Facebook post isn’t going to take the spring out of her step one bit.

Trolling anyone, especially Dolly Parton, is like aggressively giving the finger to a sunset or a panda or bag of craisins. You’re just letting everybody around you know that you’re a grumpy idiot. It’s fun to maintain that idiocy but then flip the grumpy into something obnoxiously cheerful, like a surprise cake in the mail. 

What do you like most about Troll Cakes? 

Troll Cakes combines our deep interest in cake, catty comments, the mail, being nosy, and having a reason to speak like Julia Child. Putting all of those things together saves a lot of time. 

Why do you call yourselves a detective agency as well? 

We’re a full service operation ― if you don’t know your troll’s home or work address, we’ll track ‘em down.  

What else should we know about Troll Cakes? 

We love sending Troll Cakes between friends ― some of our favorite deliveries have been one friend trolling another for oversharing on Facebook. 

We made the attached “You Donkey Witch” Troll Cake from a comment on Amy Schumer’s instagram and then made a Twitter account to holler at Amy to see if she’d like us to send. No news yet: 

We’re going to start taking Thek’s message to heart ― if you see something, cake something: 

See something? Cake something. #trollcakes

Gilbert Baker, Creator of Iconic Gay Pride Rainbow Flag, Has Died at 65

The man who tie-dyed and hand-stitched the rainbow flag that has become the worldwide symbol for gay pride and the LGBTQ community has died. He was 65.

Gilbert Baker, who described himself as a “gay Betsy Ross,” was found dead on Friday in his New York City home, the New York Times reports.

“Gilbert Baker was a pioneer in the gay rights movement,” LGBT Network CEO Dr. David Kilmnick said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE.

“It is a great loss to the LGBT community and all Americans and he will be greatly missed, but leaves us with a symbol of unity and pride that will carry on forever.”

Cleve Jones, a gay rights activist and friend of Baker, told the Times that Baker had a stroke many years ago but had not been sick recently.

Baker created the flag in 1978. That year, Harvey Milk, a San Francisco politician and gay rights leader, asked Baker to create an emblem for the movement (Milk was assassinated that year).

Along with volunteers, Baker tie-dyed and pieced together the first gay pride flags at a gay community center, unveiling them in a June gay pride parade, the Times reports.

“We stood there and watched and saw the flags, and their faces lit up,” Jones told the publication. “It needed no explanation. People knew immediately that it was our flag.”

Mom Behind Popular Parenting Site and Husband Announce Divorce as He Reveals He’s Gay: ‘It Was Our Secret’

Dustin Lance Black, who won an Oscar for writing the screenplay for the 2008 film Milk, posted a moving Twitter tribute to Baker.

“GayGod, you’d think I’d be a pro at losing the people I love by now. I’m a mess. I U, Gilbert Baker,” Black wrote.

Candlelight vigils were being held all around the world as the weekend began to honor Baker.

Chase Baker and the Golden Condor

Chase Baker and the Golden Condor


The action never wanes.” -Fort Lauderdale Sun-SentinalChase Baker, the Renaissance Man, is back in a sexy, thrilling action-adventure from NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY Bestselling author, Vincent Zandri. Chase, seeking inspiration for a new book, and a big pay-off, stumbles into the opportunity of a lifetime: to use his PI and archaeological sandhogging skills to seek out an aircraft hidden deep in a remote part of the Amazon Jungle. But the aircraft in question isn’t any old airplane. Legend claims it’s an ancient flying machine called the Golden Condor-an intergalactic spaceship delivered to the Incas by aliens more than a thousand years ago. There’s a catch, of course. Hostile tribal natives, in collaboration with a band of Tupac Amaru revolutionary terrorists, will stop at nothing to murder Chase, his team of explorers, and his beautiful literary agent, before they reach the Condor. And if the terrorists don’t kill them, then the writhing, creeping jungle almost certainly will. But in typical Chase Baker style, once he sets his sights on the prize, nothing will stand in his way. They are embarking on a mission that, if it succeeds, will change the way historians view the ancient Inca civilization-and alter society’s beliefs about early man and the heavens above. Readers of Dan Brown, Clive Cussler, Wilbur Smith, and JR Rain, will find Chase Baker’s adventures “well worth every minute,” according to SUSPENSE MAGAZINE.

Ted Baker Turns Its Hand to Interior Design

LONDON  (Reuters) – Not content with producing quirky jackets or floral cut dresses, British clothing brand Ted Baker has made a move into interior design with ‘Ted styled’ apartments.

The firm said on Tuesday it had signed a deal with property group THAT BCL, majority owned by Ted Baker’s founder and CEO Ray Kelvin, to provide a trade mark license and design services for the development of apartments in Bournemouth, southwest England, in return for a 250,000 pound ($ 377,000) fee.
Under the agreement Ted Baker will craft the interior of 15 luxury penthouse apartments in a development anchored by two Hilton Hotels in the seaside town. Rooms could be kitted out with furniture designed by Ted Baker or selected by the firm.
Ted Baker’s finance chief Lindsay Page is also a shareholder and director of THAT BCL, which focuses on mixed-use city center projects in the south of England. Kelvin, who owns almost 36 percent of Ted Baker, is THAT BCL’s principal equity provider.
Ted Baker has enjoyed a strong period of sales growth both in Britain and overseas where it has ramped up expansion in recent years. The firm often tests new areas of business, with audio equipment and crockery two of its
