Best. Cake. Ever.

Redditor azimir submitted a photo of his birthday cake to reddit, and I couldn't help but share with the whole class. From the comments, I gather that the baker's son is a Linux geek and hooked him up with some code to decorate the cake. The baker is as yet unidentified, but I'll be sure to update this post if that changes.

Go join in on the fun in the comments, and vote it up. If ever a cake deserved the top spot, this is likely that cake.

Update: The baker is Leah Wendt, and it was her daughter, a developer, who advised her to use bash script. See her comment below.

Its just the way this world turns. However, that’s not something we’re used to seeing in the automotive world, where each new model year is typically Vessels Work Lights such a minor step forward that without the addition of new creases or wings to the body, bigger wheels and more boisterous badges on the trunk, you’d hardly spot the improvements.

I have never thought about such complexity. How is it possible by someone? A linux geek you say? I am going to call him crazy!

Baker's identity

Leah Wendt's picture

I am the maker of the Linux cake. The comments on Reddit are a little off; I am a female and my daughter is a developer. She is not a Linux geek however, so while she was able to advise me to use Bash Script she couldn't write a program in it off the top of her head. So I did google searches for the scripts I wanted in my program and pieced it together.

Thanks for your very kind comment about the cake.

Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one
and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam responses?

If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
I get so much lately it's driving me crazy so any assistance is very much appreciated.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Thanks for clearing that up. I'm sorry to hear that your daughter isn't a Linux geek, but glad she's a geek nonetheless. ;)

Nice work!
