Looks a Little Fishy to Me…

Cakes, etc., The Office No Comments »

This past month my lead was out on paternity leave.  Facilities had taken down the half-door from our Taco Stand office prank, so we felt it should be repurposed.  Joe’s office was transformed into “Crazy Joe’s Bait & Tackle Co.” complete with paperclip hooks and gummyworm bait!  (pictures of the prank coming soon)

In keeping with the fishing theme, I put together these cupcakes using Goldfish crackers and pretzel sticks.  I also tried out the two-tone frosting technique by putting both a light and dark shade of blue in the piping bag – it doesn’t show well in these photos, but made for a cool “water” effect.

A Chili Return

Cakes, etc., The Office 3 Comments »

One of our test leads has been away from his office since mid-December, so it was high time for another office prank.  His love of  the nearby taco truck gave Darshan and I the idea to transform his office into a taco truck… which soon became more of a taco stand.  We took down his door and replaced it with a fully-functional counter-height door and decorated accordingly.

In keeping up the theme, I found this delicious recipe for Chocolate Chili cupcakes and made mini cupcakes to bring in to work.  I added a touch of chili powder to the cake recipe for fun (though I really only tasted the cayenne, which was fine).  I also used my own vanilla cream cheese frosting recipe in place of the chocolate one shown – the cream cheese is perfect with the bite that the spices gave the cake.  I topped off a few of the cupcakes with red hots and dyed a little frosting red and green to pipe chili peppers on the rest.

Such Great Heights

David is almost up to his 200th skydive, so while he was on vacation in China we decorated his office. He returned to 200 plastic paratrooper toys hanging from his ceiling! Huge thanks goes out to Trey and Tiffany for their help in pulling this off!

Sudoku’s Replacement

This genius at work named Igor created an awesome new game called RoboZZle that has me completely hooked… it’s got everything I could ever want and is far more exciting than Sudoku!

puzzles + nerdiness (functions + conditionals + recursion) = procrastination

FTW: I'm glad it doesn't show a clock for how long this took me to solve!

Go get hooked on it NOW!

While Darshan was in India for a month, we noticed his office seemed to get smaller and smaller!
