“I want a girl with shoes… and eyes that burn like a diamond.” The object of the narrator’s affection in Cake’s 2001 track Short Skirt/Long Jacket sounds like a pretty amazing woman. But in this version edited by William Maranci, she sounds a bit less desirable. Though she is into Minecraft.
THE BEST Cake
Do you like your birthday cake with lots of layers? Then you need a proper tool to cut through all that cake and icing.

UK pastry chefs Angie Scott Cakes created what would normally be a basic box-tier cake, but its plain white surfaces quickly come to life through the wonders of projection mapping tech. The only thing better would be if you could actually play Pac-Man and Angry Birds on it.
