The fellow who posts over at Three Ninjas read the post on my famous pake, a cake into which three pies had been baked. He must have liked the concept, because for his birthday one of his coworkers baked him a pake—actually, cup-pakes, smaller versions that, as he put it, “facilitate workplace sharing”. Cup-pakes must be even harder to make since one first has to make the mini-pies instead of using regular store-bought pies.
Here’s a cross section of the natal cup-pake, with celebratory birthday cetaceans in the background.
Three Ninjas reports that it was delicious.

I would love to get that recipe. Looks like a special cake — huh, pake.
Everyone stop by my desk, there’s plenty to go around! Happy birthday to me!
Happy birthday! Not willing to travel to Seattle for a pastry version of a crocoduck, though.
Oooh. This is like a sweet turducken.
My thought exactly! Well, my thought was ‘what a perfect dessert for after a dinner of turducken’. Close enough.
What a lucky dude–I’ve never had celebratory birthday cetaceans!
Yum, yum, eat ’em up!
I love the birthday whales. (“Thanks for the fish …”)
Can you not get mini-pies in your stores in the States? They’re quite common in the UK, e.g.
Thanks for the link. No we can not get them here, or not that I know about.
Cakes, pies, cupcakes, pakes, cup-pakes – all off limits on a paleo diet 🙁
Ah, but Bob, this isn’t…
But one must beware “…are stuffed, sometimes with a highly seasoned breadcrumb mixture…”
Even better is a Brazilian restaurant which serves 15 different meats in an all-you-can-eat dinner. I won’t post the commercial link here though.
What about a buck cake?
