True or False?

With all the media available in our modern era, it is difficult to know what is actually being seen.  What can one believe as true, false, or something in between? Who said what, was it complete or was it edited? 

Truth is truth, pure and unfiltered. False is deliberately made to deceive. Truth never changes, no matter how many want to change it.  False always is a lie, meant to seduce.

Given that build-up, here are some videos from Demotivateur cakes  (FaceBook site) They are about 4 minutes long, although one may be longer. Take the time to enjoy them. There will be some demos showing how some are created.











Therein lies the rub:  Are you being deceived? Do you perceive what is real or what is not?

I don't know about you, but I am pulling the Kitchen Aide and recipes. Or maybe we will go to some great cake bakery. I think I saw one off Murrieta Hot Springs or Winchester Avenue.  Money is no object.

  1. I've seen these types of cakes on different cooking shows, and although they are amazing, I don't really get it. I wouldn't touch a cake that looked like a potato! And I don't enjoy fondant.

    1. fondant is a slab of sweet icing. I'd peel it off.

      I would eat that potato!

  2. Incredibly cool. I love it when the Great British Baking people get onto baking cakes that take my breath away. I will say I don't have the patience for it! Thanks for these!

  4. Such talent. Like those 3-D sidewalk drawings that appear so real.

  5. Cakes used to be sheet with a few flowers. Now they can be anything. Like another visitor, I don't like fondant, but these are truly out of sight. I've seen some made by kids (in contests) that are better than ones they sell in the stores.

  13. Ha ha...ok, with cakes this is kind of cool. It doesn't matter if it is real or not. But when we can't trust the real news, we have a problem.

    1. To say that black is white and the other way around is dangerous.

    1. That requires some real examination to determine which is which.

  15. Those cakes look lovely, and i would certainly not have the patience to make them.

    It's sad that we have to be on our guard so much about what is real and what is not. Seeing is not necessarily believing any more, since pictures can be altered and the camera you think is giving you a picture of the truth is really only showing you what the camera person wants you to see and points the camera at. You never know what's off camera.
