When the highly anticipated Cake Eater Bakery opens next month in Minneapolis, here's what you're going to do.
1. You're going to either drive, bike, or walk over, if you're in Minneapolis; if not, sorry, but you're going to have to book yourself a flight.
2. Order something at the counter. I'm not the boss of you, so I'm not going to tell you what to order, because pretty much everything I've tasted that they've made is very delicious.
3. You take your treat to go, and hightail it...to the bathroom.
Yes, the bathroom. Because, my friends, Cake Eater has what is undoubtedly the sweetest, awesomest, best bathroom in the world--because it's the only bathroom in the world to have a mural done by CakeSpy.
Yup--it's true: I just spent several days muraling in Minneapolis, and the outcome couldn't be sweeter.
The mural itself is loosely based on battle scenes from The Lord of the Rings--reinterpreted with pastry characters.
A flaming Orthanc Tower is being righteously put out by a stream of pouring milk, care of to-go coffee cups;
a noble Gandalf-inspired cake (on a unicorn for added magic) leads a crew of brave warriors to battle;
the pie warriors defend their territory;
and of course, a delicious piecemeal army is coming in from the other side to help win the war of sweetness.
and to think--this is what it looked like before:
...and here's a panorama to give you an idea of how it all comes together:
I know, I know--you've just found your favorite bathroom in the world.
Cake Eater Bakery is coming soon to 2929 E 25th St in Minneapolis! For the latest info, stay up to date via their website, blog, Facebook, and of course Twitter feeds. Oh, and you can get totally sweet tees here!
