Oakley’s Thesis Cake

May 18, 2008

It was our friend Oakley’s birthday this weekend, so Hamish and I made him a special birthday cake. He’s a seemingly perpetual student, and ‘Oakley, do your thesis’ has become a bit of a catchphrase among our group. We decided that the best cake we could make, given the circumstances, would be a thesis cake. It’s carrot cake, with cream cheese icing and then fondant (or white icing) on top. The full title of his thesis is ‘Usability Issues of Wearable Outdoor Augmented Reality’ – a bit of a mouthful!

We included a special message for Oakley on the spine. 😉 Happy birthday, Oakley! I hope you enjoyed your cake!



  1. Mmmmmh, it was yummy! Delicious, delicous thesis.

  2. It also turns your teeth and tongue blue :-p

  3. Hehe, sorry about the blue. That’s the problem with dark icing colours – although tinted icing is still better than painted icing! If it hadn’t been so fresh it probably wouldn’t have been a problem. Glad you like it, though! 🙂

  4. Pollack says : I absolutely agree with this !
