THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is John Mayer’s website featuring a cake that I, Kelsey Labrot, decorated.
This is a big deal for two reasons: 1.) I wanted to win his cake decorating contest so I could win backstage passes because 2.) I am irrationally obsessed with all things John Mayer and this meant that he valued something I created for him at some level.
This cake was inspired by the sweater John Mayer wore on the Ellen Degeneres show (you can watch a clip here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7t3VgJJ-_g) that received some negative attention. I personally would have looooved to wake up on Christmas morning with him sitting under the tree wearing that sweater but I guess some people just weren’t diggin’ the duds.
Since the episode aired in the midst of John’s holiday cake decorating contest, I thought I would replicate his Ralph Lauren fashion faux-pas in cake form! Clearly I wasn’t the only one with this idea as there were some similar submissions (and I didn’t win the competition) but I received an honorable mention and that was enough for me. JOHN MAYER. I LOVE YOUR WORK!!
