Forget Trainspotting--Welcome to Cakespotting!

For some reason, I think I might have posted about this before. Then again, I might be dreaming. Anyways, when you're wandering the streets of Seoul you see lots of interesting things to say the least. People are always so busy and everyone is doing their "thang" wherever they go. One thing that I noticed was the number of cakes that people would be carrying all over the place.

Of course there are birthdays everyday and special occasions that require cakes. The interesting thing is that these cake boxes have built in handles on the top, so you see lots of people wandering the streets--with cakes! I'd like to call this my day of cakespotting! Let's take a look, shall we?

You will see cakes underground in the subway stations...


...near Gwanghwamun outside Cafe imA and their delicious waffles...


...near City Hall (what a good boyfriend this chap is!)...


...in Gangnam...these ladies move fast so you gotta be ready to take the shot...


...most cakes are sponsored by the one, the only, Paris baguette...


...after carrying your cake all day, the moment you've all been waiting for finally arrives. Why not snap up some pictures inside a Starbucks with your cellphone?

Most bakeries supply you with candles and these pull-string-popping-streamer thingies that can really freak people out--I love them. Also, coffee shops will give you plates and cutlery to eat your cake. So this guy has his cake and he gets to eat it too.
