Cake Zine announces Paris launch event for third issue

Cake Zine volume three is arriving soon and they’re celebrating in style in Paris this July. The poster on Instagram reads, “Magazines! Cocktails! Dessert!” next to a silhouette of a woman holding pie, in a nostalgic style. “Cake Zine is a hedonistic exploration of history, pop culture, literature, and art through sweets,” they write on their website.

Their latest volume is named ‘Humble Pie’ and attendees at their event on July 6th can buy advance copies. The event is to be held at Combat in Belleville, a female-owned cocktail bar that opened in the summer of 2017. Their Instagram post also noted that there will be a special cocktail on hand inspired by the issue and free slices of dessert.

Free slices of dessert is only the icing on the cake for Cake Zine fans, who can also purchase a brand new t-shirt designed by Social Species, a design studio and print collective. Cake Zine writes, “this limited edition shirt features a mellow butter hue and a design inspired by classic receipts—only the text pulls from our new issue, not a late night diner order.”

Cake Zine’s issue three launch event details can be found on their Instagram post here. Zine pre-orders start shipping from early August, as per their website.
