Blog Will Hunting celebrates one year on the web, with cake wrecks

Ah yes, it was just a year ago when we first began blogging about Good Will Hunting here on Blog Will Hunting.

And as a part of our ongoing series THEY GOT A BOOK DEAL; WHY NOT ME, please enjoy a piece of birthday cake with us.

If a blog about ill-constructed cakes can get a book deal, why not a blog with brilliantly-constructed Good Will Hunting-themed cakes?


"How Do You Like Them Apples?" apple cake with brown sugar frosting and mini-cupcakes with red frosting

Many thanks to cake auteur Molly, who writes:

Well, it was supposed to be a “How Do You Like Them Apples?” Apple Cake, with Brown Sugar Frosting, with mini-cupcakes made to look like apples.  The cake recipe is from King Arthur Flour.  On the cake was a hand, holding a piece of paper with Skylar’s phone number. The background was decorated with cinnamon, and the paper made white with confectioner’s sugar, and the hand’s sleeve was green and black plaid. It was lovely.

But by the time it got to your house, it was a “Do you like apples? Well, I destroyed your cake on the 72 bus on the way over. How do you like THEM apples?” Apple Cake, with frosting mash. It was a literal cake wreck. I cried a little, just like I did the first time I saw Good Will Hunting.  Still tasted good, though.

Happy Birthday, Blog Will Hunting!

Thanks to cake creator Katherine, who ran into some cake-making issues, primarily fitting all Will’s fictional brothers onto one cake, explaining “I had to resort to cupcakes. Also, there was a giant sinkhole in ‘Danny’ that I could not, for the life of me, fix… no matter how much frosting i filled it with, it kept sinking in.”


And finally, to all you cake-makers and blog-readers…

It's not your  fault!
