Good night, sweet boob/penis/vulva cake shop.
  • Good night, sweet boob/penis/vulva cake shop.

After almost three decades in Wallingford—since 1986—the Erotic Bakery, Seattle's source for explicit cakes, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, and more, is closing at the end of September.

Owner Kimmie Barnett says it’s simply because she’s tired, but she also mentioned a decline in demand for boob/penis/vulva cakes.

Seattle's recession of cool/weird old-school culture—see, most recently, the news about the Hurricane Cafe closing—has now officially become a depression, and I, for one, am very depressed. To paraphrase a bit of Seattle history, will the last cool/weird old-school institution leaving Seattle turn out the lights?
