My fourth and our winner!

I've been having one helluva sweet weekend, I hope you all have, too. It's summer, damnit, why hold back??

Yesterday, I baked a special 2-layer "America" cake... the top layer was blue, and the bottom layer red:

Here, you see the bottom layer coming together rather "spuma"-like.

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, I am also responsible for the Peen-tini.

Yes... yes... light it up.....!



Hooray!


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 spandexpony@gmail.com 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!

Stay tuned,

Elissa.
