Kameya: Having Your Cake and Eating It, Too

Eleven-year-old Kameya is into ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Mythbusters” and… disastrous cakes. She loves checking out the newest posts at Cake Wrecks, a blog that features cakes gone terribly wrong. “It’s awesome. It’s so funny,” she says. “My English teacher Mrs. Stewart would fail all those cakes for spelling.”

“Before we got the Revue, I had to ask to use the Internet every time and never in my room. On the TV, my mom says it’s fine,” said Kameya.

Now Kameya surfs the Web on the TV while sitting on the couch in her living room. “The Revue is like Google search for all the TV stuff and a really big Web screen together. It’s better than TV because it’s got more stuff and you find it and it’s just all there.”

She pushes the Search key on her Logitech Keyboard Controller keyboard and starts typing. “As I put in cake, all these cake shows came up: Ace of Cakes , Cake Boss. Who even knew there were so many shows about cake?”

Kameya picks Ace of Cakes and in no time, she’s knee-deep in epic cake construction projects, complete with power saws and fondant disasters. And when she wonders what, exactly, fondant is, the answer is right there at her fingertips.

“There were YouTube videos about using it and how to make it on allrecipes.com. So I’m going to try my own fondant cake that looks like my dog Sassy. I hope it’s not a cake wreck cake though. But that would be funny
