What is your favorite cake? My favourite type of cake is: ALL CAKE! But I guess if I had to choose one I would probably go with a black forest gateau, delicious chocolate, tasty cream and decadent cherries..yum yum yum!

If you had to give a gift to your favorite fictional character, what would it be and to who? I would give Bloody Glass Shard Cupcakes to April Ludgate (from Parks and Rec) because I know she would love how gruesome they are!

bilbo-baggins

What is your favorite cake? My favorite cake is probably the most simple, classic thing you can imagine: yellow cake with chocolate frosting and rainbow sprinkles, and I’m a happy Jo.

If you had to give a gift to your favorite fictional character, what would it be and to who? I think my favorite fictional character is Bilbo Baggins, and I’d give him a fully catered breakfast including multiple courses and all you can eat seed cakes. Of course, I’m a huge breakfast fan and would probably want to share it with him, too!

fangirl

What is your favorite cake? My favorite cake is Dr. Pepper cake. As a child of the south, and growing up in Texas especially, Dr. Pepper cake was a common and delicious cake that I only wished we could eat more often. A chocolatey cake with actual Dr. Pepper in it, how could it get any better than that? Oh yeah, Dr. Pepper frosting too!

If you had to give a gift to your favorite fictional character, what would it be and to who? I think I would choose Cath from Fangirl, and I would give her some moleskine journals. A writer can never have enough journals, right? And I just love moleskines! <3 Or maybe I would get her this beautiful Spells and Charms notebook from Etsy.

tiny-tina

What is your favorite cake? I actually really love carrot cake! It’s got that kind of healthy thing going on, but it’s still cake. Delicious, and not too sweet! Now I’m hungry…

If you had to give a gift to your favorite fictional character, what would it be and to who? I have so many favorite fictional characters, but lately I’ve been on a Borderlands kick! I definitely adore Tiny Tina and her cute, 13-year old psychopathic nature. I’d give her a horrifying stuffed animal, perhaps a demon bunny with jagged teeth, jam-packed with dynomite. BOOM!

dana-sculley

What is your favorite cake? German Chocolate Cake! Chocolate/Coconut/Pecans – three of my favorite things! When I was little, I would eat that frosting by the spoonful! Fun fact: German Chocolate Cake is not from Germany, it’s named after a chocolate maker Sam German. Fun Fact two: The first recipe was pushed in 1950s in a newspaper in my hometown of Dallas.

If you had to give a gift to your favorite fictional character, what would it be and to who? I’m going to send a spa day certificate to Dana Scully. She works super hard and has the world’s most annoyingly charming partner. She needs to take a day off and go get a massage. Preferably one where nothing weird or mysterious ever happens.

aragorn

What is your favorite cake? Oof. This is a super tough decision! I just love cake in general, and am happy putting ANY of it in my mouth. But I think the Best Cake Evar award has to go to Pineapple Upsidedown Cake. I’m a huge caramel fan, and the delicious sugary-buttery-caramelized action of this cake combined with tasty pineapple and cherry is the best combo. I’m smiling just thinking about it.

If you had to give a gift to your favorite fictional character, what would it be and to who? Let’s talk about how Aragorn is an ass kicking king with a smoking hot wife and how I would love to throw him a Gondor-style birthday party. If I lived in Minas Tirith, he and I would totally be best buds. So what do you get your best bud who also happens to be royalty? After a hard day of orc slaying, Aragorn deserves a nice, fancy beard trim and a shampoo and style from Derby City Chop Shop in Louisville, Kentucky. Those hipsters would treat his kingly tresses right. And then after that, he would walk outside and find his brand new sleek, black and chrome motorcycle, because screw horseback riding. Ain’t no king-guy got time for that. And maybe there could be a little sidecar, so he could take me around with him.

gilmore-girls

What is your favorite cake? I love a classic vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting and sprinkles. But really, as long as there’s vanilla buttercream, I’m not picky on cake flavour.

If you had to give a gift to your favorite fictional character, what would it be and to who? Lorelai Gilmore will always be one of my favourite characters. I’d give her some chocolate biscotti and of course, a bag of amazing coffee.

batman-sherlock

What is your favorite cake? I prefer brownies or cheesecake over actual cake– I’m a party pooper that way, not really into frosting or fancy flavors. To draw me into cake, there needs to be chocolate involved, or keep it plain vanilla! Also I’ll eat just about anything if there’s caramel involved.

If you had to give a gift to your favorite fictional character, what would it be and to who? My favorite characters of all time are Batman & Sherlock Holmes; I’d pick them each out a new mug & some great teas (some high caffeine blends for those late nights, & some decaf for recovering after the action subsides). I’m sure Alfred & Watson would be the ones writing up a thank-you card, brewing the tea, & washing the mugs… so I’d send some for them too, to show my appreciation. <3

malcolm-reynolds

What is your favorite cake? My favourite cake is from a little asian bakery in my hometown. I’ve never quite been able to pin down the recipe. It is the most amazing light and fluffy sponge cake layered with fresh whipped cream and fresh fruit. I’m partial to the strawberry and mango topped cakes, but they’re all delicious!

If you had to give a gift to your favorite fictional character, what would it be and to who? If I could give a gift to my favourite fictional character, I would have a REALLY hard time choosing! I finally settled on Captain Mal. Every space cowboy needs a nice new brown leather jacket. A jacket cut just right to cover a new custom fitted holster designed specifically to cradle his modified sidearm with easy access to extra ammunition.
