The Ray Lewis Carrot Cake

My sister-in-law is getting married in September. She has done me the distinct honor of asking me to be her matron of honor. It is in this capacity (and also due to the fact that we only live about 20 minutes apart form each other) I get to do awesome things like getting to taste different kinds of wedding cake.

Mmmm. Cake.

This is no joke. Some people might think going to the florist and the photographer and helping pick out music and stuff like that is a chore but I honestly enjoy doing that kind of stuff.

I used to work in event planning and I think if it had paid better I wouldn’t haven’t minded staying in that industry.

But that isn’t why I am telling you about this. I am telling you about this because today, while tasting cakes, I saw the most awesome thing I have ever seen.

A Ray Lewis carrot cake.

This is no joke. I saw the picture and I started freaking out. Here is why:


It looks exactly like him!

Fortunately, my mother-in-law, sister-in-law and future brother-in-law are used to me freaking out over stuff like this. I may have taken the wedding planner and the lady who made the cakes slightly off guard.

Kendall (from Kendall’s Cakes who made this cake) asked me if I wanted to keep the copy of the picture. I said yes please and then did what any good blogger would do and said “Can I put this on the internet?”


A Ray Lewis carrot cake, and it looks like Ray Lewis. This is a sports bloggers dream come true.

Oh, and I sampled the carrot cake and it was good.

And I don’t even like carrot cake.

Unless it shaped like Ray Lewis.


My birthday is in two weeks. I wonder if she can make one that looks like Warren Sapp?

  1. Too bad I didn’t know you when I threw Doug a surprise party for his 30th party. Leslie at fancy cakes by Leslie (totally recommend them, in Bethesda, didn’t pay me to say that) made him a cake in the shape of a Steelers terrible towel made of a chocolate ganache. It was awesome.

  2. Wait a minute. Is that a 3D cake? Not a picture on a flat cake? Crazy. Who would freak out over that? If I lived closer to you I would buy you a Warren Sapp cake.

  3. a warren sapp cake? that would be a big effing cake.

  4. also, do you think it would be weird to eat someone’s face??

  5. That is weird. Too weird. Is the cake standing up? Or is he lying on the table.

    And the weird part is that you like all that wedding planning crap. I’ve been married 3 1/2 years and I still flinch when I drive by a Micheals.

  6. That is a fantastic cake!! And I love love love Warren Sapp. What a big teddy bear.

  7. If a cake maker who needs the business had good sense they would pony up a Warren Sapp cake. Just sayin.

  8. If you cut into it, are there brains and stuff?

  9. Because that would be totally cool.

  10. I made you a Howie Long cake. Enjoy!

  11. Yes, that does look like Ray Lewis and it is pretty freakin’ scary. Warren Sapp on the other hand, is adorable.

  12. Bad ass! I am SO flying to be at that birthday party, I remember when Warren Tweeted back to you! I will go kiss my Warren Sapp bobble head doll for your birthday!

    Queen of Feisty

  13. Dude that is freaky. What flavor would Sapp be?

  14. I hope that cake doen’t turn out to be a murder accomplice, too!
