4 Savory Cakes I'd Rather Be Eating This Holiday Season

I'd take a slice of pizza cake over chocolate any day of the week.

4 Savory Cakes I'd Rather Be Eating This Holiday Season

The past couple days I've been overwhelmed with desserts.

If you're like me, you prefer savory and salty, over sweet any day. With the Holiday Season in full swing I've been overwhelmed with sweets lately: cookies, brownies, pastries, and cakes. The sugar overflow got me thinking- here are four SAVORY cakes I'd rather be eating this December...

1. Pizza Cake

Pizza dough, melted cheese, spicy/savory tomato sauce, and pepperonis all layered and baked together in a cheesy delicious cake. If you love pizza, you'd surely love pizza cake- it's literally just a larger, taller version of the delicious Italian classic. Pair with ranch dressing, red pepper flakes, and parmesan cheese for the best flavor combinations.

2. Sushi Cake

White sticky rice, shrimp, tuna, salmon, crab, and lobster all rolled up with seaweed and delightfully arranged into a beautiful seafood cake. Wasabi and ginger toppings can be placed near the Sushi extravaganza for those extra tangy and spicy flavors. If you love sushi, you would surely love it artfully arranged in cake-form.

3. Fried Chicken and Mashed Potato Cake

Okay, this just sounds like a classic Southern party cake. Mashed potatoes, corn bread and yams, drizzled with gravy and topped with a few deliciously fried chicken pieces. Savory and salty with a bit of unexpected protein. This cake is the ultimate salty-flavor fan!

4. Cheeseburger Cake

As simple and tasty as it sounds- one large bun, a beef (or turkey) patty, cheese, tomato, onion, lettuce, pickles, and your condiments of choice all in rather large proportions. This "cake" is basically just a large cheeseburger that is cut into slices. It may seem easy, but it tastes delicious and would satisfy any savory craving. Plus it is always fun to eat foods in different ways!

So there you have it, four savory and salty cakes that you may enjoy more than chocolate if you are anything like me. Don't get me wrong, I love a cookie or cupcake now and then, but when it really comes down to it, I'd pick a slice of pizza over a pastry any day of the week.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
