Taylor Swift fans, grab a fork! The pop star’s songs are taking on a form of a different kind—and no, we’re not talking the singer’s recent merger with Apple Music.

While we’re used to seeing Swift’s catchy lyrics all over Tumblr and on the shirts of many a fan at her shows (remember #TAYLORgating?), this just takes the cake …

Well, because it is cake.

Lindsay Nathanson, the blogger and baker extraordinaire behind the dessert destination Sprinkles for Breakfast, created a handful of cakes to pay tribute to Swift and her 1989 album.

“A couple of months ago I found myself in a little bit of a design rut,” Nathanson tells PEOPLE. “I felt like I was doing the same thing over and over again, and I wanted to try something new.”

The blogger turned to music for inspiration. “When I turned on the 1989 album to start brainstorming, the idea just presented itself,” she says.

Sweet deal! Scroll through to see all of the lyrically inclined cakes, along with the song lyrics that inspired their design—and check out her Sprinkles for Breakfast feed on Instagram. Nathanson tells us she’ll be releasing even more Swift-inspired cakes in the coming weeks.

“Music is such an amazing source of inspiration,” she says, “So the possibilities are endless.”

1. “A kaleidoscope of loud, heart beats under coats. And it said …Welcome to New York.”

2. “But I got a blank space baby … and I’ll write your name.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

But Taylor is no longer sweet, she is a crazy celebrity who hangs out with anorexic and megalomaniac models and her songs looks like written by a psycho killer.
