Trippy Cupcakes, Man

Cakes, etc. No Comments »

Katie, Darshan, and Nikhil threw an awesome 60’s themed party and I knew I couldn’t resist using my neon food dyes!  I made a modified version of the Double Rainbow cupcakes from my birthday earlier this year and made some fun tie dye cupcakes, topped with flowers, hearts, stars… and dinosaurs??

What do you get when you put a bunch of Microsofties in a conference room on 3/14 at 1:59pm?  A Pi Day celebration!  (The approximation of pi, 3.14159, can be read as a date and time – nerds around the World observe Pi Day every March 14th!)

Our team had a pie baking contest this year.  I made a cherry and pecan pie and am happy to report my first attempt at homemade pie crusts was a success!  Below is a picture of my “Cherry Pi” and the full lineup for the contest, which included everything from an assortment of different apple pies to savory meat pies.
