      Check out a cake pan at Great Bend Public Library, Kansas

      This is amazing.

      Who says libraries are dying?

      I feel like there was another cake pan/library photo floating around a while back which was even more epic. Hanging them in bags seems much more sensible though.

      Oh man, does looking at this make anyone else hungry?

      Imagine taking that cake pan and putting gelato in it.

      Can’t even work for the rest of the day now.

      First, huntingtonlibrary and thegetty were beautiful and magical together…until gelato came along and stole huntingtonlibrary's heart away.

      Wait wait wait, huntingtonlibrary what if we promised to fill this vase with gelato.

      It’s 9 feet high…

      Vase, 1889, Jean-Désiré Ringel d’Illzach. Bronze and copper, 107 1/2 in. high. The J. Paul Getty Museum.
