Jimmy Fallon shows off Goldie’s frosting handiwork
Jimmy Fallon eating a cupcake
frosted by Goldie the Makerbot
On June 26, 2009, Jimmy Fallon ate a cupcake frosted by Goldie the Makerbot on late night television. In the background is Goldie’s chief inventor, Bre Pettis and a “world record guy” Dan Rollman.
What’s a Makerbot? It’s a 3D printer made from a DIY kit that prints out a three dimension design in maleable plastic. Of course, that’s my ten cent version. You can read about it first hand on the Makerbot website. Using the same theory, one geek was inspired to turn Goldie into a frosting distributor for cupcakes. For some reason Geeks and cupcakes just seem to go hand-in-hand!

Jimmy Fallon is no stranger to red velvet and frosting. Earlier, Georgetown Cupcakes
shipped a box of their incredible cupcakes to Fallon’s New York studio. The resulting cupcake orgy was captured on film. Some staffers began screaming; one had a seizure. A script girl was quoted as “having seen the face of God.” The photos
are worth a thousand words. We all know the feeling. Been there, ate the cupcake. CUPCAKE.ZEN
