Yesterday, I baked a special 2-layer "America" cake... the top layer was blue, and the bottom layer red:
Then, I sat and waited while the cake baked and cooled, so I could decorate it and take it to a party that night.
Tank: JCrew. Skirt: Mayan Connection, picked up at last weekend's festival. Sandals: Delia's.
Due to its moistness, the cake died a thousand deaths in between being taken from the oven and being all decked with my symbolist flag and sparklers. Luckily, I managed to glue the cake together with a second can of whipped icing, adding, I might say, a delicious je ne sais quoi to both taste and texture.
Yes... yes... light it up.....!
I'm proud to say both that the cake was a rather rousing success, and that There Is Indeed a Winner to the iPod Shuffle Giveaway!!!
Using Random.org's scientifically proven Random Number Generator, I determined entrant #16 to be the winner! Will the contestant known as BigGame please stand up? And then sit back down and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so you can get your Shuffle! Congratulations! In tribute to BigGame, a video from the artist they suggested to me, Katy Perry -- who really kicks it acoustic.
A great big thank you to all of the contestants for entering-- and keep your eyes peeled because there might just be another great contest lurking on the horizon!
