CAKE MAIL or why snail-mail is awesome

I would be so stoked to get this in my mail box. Oh that’s right this yummy piece of cake is the trump l’oeil  of birthday greetings. Made from polymers, paint and cardboard this peice of cake can travel cross country in the mail. Well it does take a little more than .42 cents to get it there, but it’s worth it when you think of the smile it will bring to all the postal workers, and the recipient. I’m pretty upset that I found this after my sisters birthday last week, but you don’t have to make the same mistake. Go buy yourself some cake mail from TangBaby’s etsy shop before they blow out the candles.

    That is way too stinkin’ cute! I can’t even believe it can go through the mail.
    I just love it though.

    Wow, how good does that look? Love it!! Reckon my postman would prob eat it before it gets to my front door. My best friend loves chocolate cake, so this would be a great thing to send, however she is going to be abroad for her birthday, so it will be hard to get so much as a card out to her.

    Love, love, love this! Frankly, all of your recommendations are certifiably swoony.

    By the by, I found you by way of the Etsy daily email today. Love your animal snowflake tags. Beautiful!
