Canon Lens Mug Guy Gets a Nikon DSLR Birthday Cake

To paraphrase George Costanza, worlds have collided!

Nikon-cake Microsoftie Josh Weisberg, the guy we wrote about earlier this year who rose to fame when he secured a coveted Canon lens mug at the Vancouver Olympics (sorry, that original post was destroyed when our blog went down), recently celebrated his 40th birthday with, get this, a birthday cake in the shape of a giant Nikon digital SLR.

Josh’s friend Mia made it for him, basing it on an old D200 he loaned her. (Ok, so maybe he’s not a Canon guy, after all.)

Josh reports that the entire cake is edible, including the printed labels which are made of edible ink; the plastic on the LCD panels; the lens; and the back cover which are made of sugar.

Happy birthday Josh! And maybe for your next one Mia can make a cake shaped like a Canon lens mug. Talk about worlds colliding.

    Happy Birthday, Josh – I hope you propose to Mia, because anyone who makes a cake like that for a ‘friend’ without getting paid? Yeah. That’s love.

    Nice work!
    But where’s the Canon love?
    My wife made me a Canon Cake :-)
