There’s Snow Day Like Today…

Cakes, etc. 3 Comments »

Darshan has a strange fondness for the Hostess treats known as “Sno-Balls“.  So strange, in fact, that it seemed only right to make a giant Sno-Ball cake for his 23rd Birthday!

Sno-Ball Cake

This cake involved filling a hollowed chocolate cake with a creamy icing then covering the whole thing with a layer of pink marshmallow creme frosting and topping this off with coconut (which, yes, was dyed pink).  Turned out better than I expected it would (and was also easier to make than I was expecting).

Bumbershoot 2008 (day 3 of 3) was awesome today!  Death Cab for Cutie played an amazing set; it was all I dreamed it would be and more!  The entire day was a ton of fun, other than the fact that I now smell like pot (thanks to everyone at Del Tha Funkee Homosapien).  I think I’ll have to get the three-day pass next year!

#1 highlight of the day was during The Offspring this afternoon when crowd surfing was taken to a whole new level as the audience hoisted a wheelchair up above their heads!  Yes, the owner of the wheelchair was sitting in it.
