Don't Try This at Home: Cake Pillow

Don't Try This at Home: Cake Pillow

I'm kind of in awe of LA-based blogger Justin Jorgenson, who's responsible for this high-concept pillow. Describing this project, he writes:

I’d gone to several supermarket bakeries looking for the right pillow-like cake to sleep on. I stood and stared and got down and looked at the cakes from the side, in the case, trying to imagine how they would photograph with my head on them.

One bakery woman with bad teeth said I could sample any of them. I said no I wouldn’t be eating it. She said, “Oh, for someone else?”

I said, “No. I’m going to be sleeping on it, like a pillow.”

She said, “Why don’t you just use a pillow.”

I said, “Because a pillow is not a cake.”

And that's a good lesson for all of us home enthusiasts, isn't it? A pillow is not a cake.

A pillow is not a cake, but is a cake a pillow? If I wasn't so borderline OCD I would totally do this. Just, you know, to see. I'm with Yum though. It'd be gone by morning. The whole dang sheet. :wink:

"A pillow is not a cake." I bet that bakery employee was thought this dude was on drugs or something.

Super cool designer or not, this guy sounds like an ass. I mean, a nice woman at the bakery tells him he can sample the cakes and he describes her as someone with bad teeth? Surely that wasn't integral to the story? And then when she observes that using a cake for a pillow is . . . a bad idea, he's like, "Duh, all the cool kids are sleeping on cakes!" I'm sure he goes around saying that no one understaaaaands his genius. Bleh.

I can see the good points to your dreams would be accompanied by nice cake scents.....and the egg, milk, and sugar mix would be nice exfoliants on your skin. And the cake should be soft, so it may be ideal with those who have neck problems. I see a generous amount of potential here!

It's weird if your not really paying attention the cake does look like a pillow. A yummy pillow.

And when he has to call 911 because he's inhaled some of the cake and/or frosting (Or worse yet, we're called to a DOA cuz he choked to death during the night), I'll be laughing and calling him a big Dummy.
