If You Love Drake, You Need These Cakes ASAP
It’s two things you can’t live without: Drake and cake. Thanks to blogger extraordinaire Joy the Baker, you can now get two of your favorite things together in one singular sweet, and it’s quite frankly a combo so genius you won’t believe no one has thought of it before. Behold: Drake on Cake.
He started from the bottom, now he’s on top…. of cakes and pies (couldn’t help it!). Joy has taken some of the Canadian rapper’s most famous lyrics, such as “YOLO” and “No New Friends” and prettily frosted them onto some of her delectable creations.
The New Orleans-based blogger and baker has yet to publicly comment on the inspiration behind her cakes (and pies! Did we mention pies?!), other than to acknowledge them as her “passion project” in a blog post. But the account is not even two months old and has almost 30,000 followers, showing what a little creativity can do.
No word yet on whether or not Drake will feature the cakes at his new restaurant Fring’s in Toronto. The cakes aren’t currently for sale, sadly, but feel free to channel your expert DIY skills here. If you’re reading this, it’s not too late (had to!).

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
