In Hong Kong, the steamy glass cases are filled with fresh milk buns, walnut butter cakes and globular blobs of red-bean mocha, or Mexican custard loafs, Swiss roll-ups and Italian bolognese sauce buns. Within minutes, I find the golden fleece of a pineapple bun.
À Hong Kong, les présentoirs embués portent pains au lait frais, gâteaux beurre et noix, mokas globulaires aux fèves rouges, pains mexicains à la crème anglaise, roulés suisses et brioches italiennes à la sauce bolognaise. Je repère illico le floconneux doré d’une brioche-ananas.
My name is Ant Roman and I make Geeky cakes- it’s what I do! For the past 4 years, I’ve been working from my home making cakes, cookies and cupcakes for all kinds of fandoms & fans. The internet tends to think Nerdache Cakes is a team of people who bake, make cakes and share it all- but it’s just me. I’ve whipped up geek treats for places like Funko, Seventeen Magazine, The Today Show, Frederator, Nintendo World and tons more. But I can no longer work from the space I do now, and I don’t want to stop doing what I love.
So I’m asking for your help. I started a Kickstarter to open a nerdy bakery + cafe- a real place you can stop by and get (and be shipped) tasty treats! But we only have 8 days left, and are over $70K away from our funding goal.
Please, Reblog and pledge! Just $1 can make a huge difference. You’ll also get awesome rewards like shirts, cookies, Nerdache Boxes and lots more.
This bakery is 4+ years of my life doing what I love, for the people I love. I know Tumblr can help me make my geeky dream come true, and help me build this fandom bakery. Any bit helps, and I greatly appreciate it.
Our favorite geeky baker, Ant Roman of Nerdache Cakes, is raising dough to go beyond her virtual presence of the past four years and open a real live bakery and café, a place where you and your nerd-friends can hang out, drink coffee, and talk all things Mario and Kenshin Himura with your mouths full of sweets.
At the very least, watch Ant’s super inspiring Kickstarter video (don’t miss the PuppyCat, Catbug, and Adventure Time cakes in the background).
Best of luck, Ant. We’re going to go and contribute right now.
started a Kickstarter to open a Geeky Bakery- a place you can have all
the nerdy treats you love with fandoms you enjoy! But we have just 13
days to raise the rest of our funds to open our doors, and with the way
it looks now I’m afraid we won’t make it there.
guys, help me out! Even just a dollar from each of my followers would
give us nearly twice our funding goal. There’s also delicious rewards
like nerdy cookies, tees’, monthly cookie subscription boxes and more!
Please pledge! Even If you can’t donate, please reblog and spread the word!
