    For two Harvard University undergrads, what began as "an excuse to eat a lot of cake" may turn into the invention of a lifetime. John McCallum, a 20-year-old from Louisiana, was daydreaming about cake his freshman year during his “Science of Cooking” class when he happened to see someone spraying whipped cream and thought to himself, why not spray cake? Is that possible? He and his girlfriend and fellow student Brooke Nowakowski went on to prove that it is, winning first place and $10,000 in the 2014 Harvard Innovation challenge, reports ABC News. Their "Spray Cake" involves spraying cake batter...

    New York Magazine ^ | 6/25 | Jonathan Chait
    The return to preeminence of the Clintons was supposed to signify a renewed economic populism that would define the Democratic Party. It was, after all, Hillary Clinton who quaffed beers with white working-class Democrats in her 2008 campaign against the abstract, yuppified idealism of Barack Obama. And it was Bill Clinton who, in a 2012 Democratic National Convention speech, folksily explained the party’s economic philosophy more concretely than Obama himself had ever managed. And yet, in the wake of a stream of disclosures and clumsy statements, the class narrative has turned sharply against the Clintons. The Arkansas populists find themselves...

Social media in Saudi Arabia, where women are banned from driving, promptly decried the cake and users said that “it was making fun of the highly respected members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice who were depicted as using a van to chase the all women truck.”...

    As a pastor who regularly performs weddings, I can tell that some couples are more likely to divorce than others. It’s not most evident in pre-marital counseling or private comments made before the service. I can’t see it as the vows are said or rings exchanged. It’s not even in the kiss. As a pastor, I can predict the likelihood of divorce based on how the wedding cake is exchanged. I’ve been performing wedding ceremonies since I was 18. One of the first ceremonies I performed was pretty routine. Everything went without a hitch until it came time for the...

    March 3, 2014 (Breakpoint.org) - The call for tolerating same-sex marriage has become a demand for compliance. Cases like Masterpiece Cake Shop in Colorado and Elane Huguenin’s New Mexico photography business have shown us that “tolerance” ends exactly where the right to say “no” begins. And so people, businesses, and non-profits are forced to choose between their livelihoods and their convictions. Some fellow Christians are giving this new state of affairs a thumbs-up, including Kirsten Powers, whose fearless stand against abortion I admire, and Skye Jethani, a friend I respect greatly. They argue that Christians who won’t participate in gay...

    Jesus Christ would absolutely bake a cake for a gay person. He’d bake a cake for a straight person. He’d bake a cake for a girl, a boy, a person who isn’t sure what they are, a black person, a white person — Jesus would bake that cake if it, in some way large or small, drew that person closer to Him. . . . . The disagreement comes on one issue only — should a Christian provide goods and services to a gay wedding. That’s it. We’re not talking about serving a meal at a restaurant. We’re not talking...

    Mr. Abbas, Israel wants to sign a peace treaty based on the principle of "two states for two peoples." You have refused to accept this formula. Israel has proven that it will withdraw to new borders, remove Israelis from your state, and give up its claims to Biblical lands. It's time for you to reciprocate. Recognize Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people, stop the incitement against Israel, and let's bring an end to the conflict once and for all.

    A gay couple is pursuing a discrimination complaint against a Colorado bakery, saying the business refused them a wedding cake to honor their Massachusetts ceremony, and alleging that the owners have a history of turning away same-sex couples. As more states move to legalize same-sex marriage and civil unions, the case highlights a growing tension between gay rights advocates and supporters of religious freedom. "Religious freedom is a fundamental right in America and it's something that we champion at the ACLU," said Mark Silverstein, the legal director of the group in Colorado, which filed the complaint on behalf of the...

I am quite ready to give up and never eat this again, despite the fact that I really like it, but I need to know which part is the problem, so I can make other plans the next time we have a birthday around here.

    The nation's homeland security chief left little doubt Friday that Texas Gov. Rick Perry - rebuffed repeatedly in his demands for more National Guard along the border - can forget about getting more troops. The federal government has already invested $600 million to tighten security, Secretary Janet Napolitano said, noting that illegal immigration and smuggling are down, while violence from Mexico's drug war remains contained across the border. "He is a governor. He always has the ability, in a way, to bring up National Guard, if he's willing to pay for them," she said. "That's always an option available to...

Miss Clinton’s dress, designed by Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, is rumoured to be a cool £16,000, and the jewellery she wears on the day is worth £160,000.

When she told the bakery department she wanted her son's name spelled out, she was told to talk to a supervisor, who denied the request.

If current trends continue, by 2050 about 60 per cent of men, 50 per cent of women and 25 per cent of children in the UK will be clinically obese...

    A local woman thought getting a cake decorated would be simple. However, she ran into some problems she didn't expect, when she approached different bakeries. Connie Ansley is part of the Daughters of the Confederacy. She wanted a cake with the Confederate emblem on it, for the opening of a new memorial museum. Ansley says several big chain stores refused to decorate a cake with a confederate flag on it. They told her it was because of the emblem, which some consider a symbol of racism and slavery. "It's a constant battle we fight every day to keep our heritage,"...

    FORT PAYNE, Ala. - After 15 years of being known as the city that created the world's largest birthday cake, Fort Payne may have to forfeit that title. Las Vegas created its own giant cake last weekend in celebration of the city's 100th birthday.

Organizers said they expected Guinness Book of Records officials to confirm their cake as the world's largest within weeks. Fort Payne has held the title since 1989, when it created a 128,238-pound cake in the...
