Finally got around to installing the software for our new camera (yay!), so now I can show y'all the cake I made for Arisia!

As I've mentioned, this was the 20th Arisia, so the chair asked me to make a cake for the staff party. She said I could do whatever I wanted. Hee hee.

I was thinking of doing a topsy-turvy cake (a.k.a. a "mad hatter" cake), but realized when I started shaping it that the layers needed to be taller and narrower. Oh well. Hopefully it still looks cool.

Used 5 lb flour, 5 lb sugar, 1/2 lb cocoa, 6 lb confectioner's sugar... took me 2 nights (3 if you count baking). It was gobbled up in 1/2 hour. Fortunately that's a good thing for a cake.

Pardon the background clutter, I was going to snip these down but don't want to spend any more time on it right now.

As you may be able to infer, my "vision" for the cake was "rocket to the moon." (Could also be called "Excelsior.") What do you think? Did it work? :-)

As I recently mentioned, I've been working on the cake for a friend's daughter's Bat Mitzvah party, which is this coming Sunday. The young lady loves to read and likes the color blue. This is what I came up with. (You really don't want to know how long this took... and for scale, the board it's on [borrowed from another congregant] is 18" square.) Read more... )

With all the prep for Arisia I've fallen about a week behind on posts, which are at skip = 500+. There's no way I'm going to catch up. If I missed something you think I should see, or would find of interest, please let me know. Thanks!

As a partial apology, though, I'll share one of the things that was taking up my time. Read more... )

Must go to bed... have a good Monday Tuesday, everyone!

Decided to post these separately, so those who just wanted to read the previous post wouldn't have to wait for pictures to load.

Here are a few pictures from First Night at Noreascon: Read more... )

I cropped several of these so they'd load faster, hopefully the proportions are all right.

Developed the pictures I took when we went downtown to the Public Garden with [livejournal.com profile] sdavido's friends during the DNC. They came out beautifully - Boston is really lovely when the weather's nice - so I decided to share a few. This time I got them on a CD so they're nice and crisp, but they'll also probably take longer to load (though I tried to size them down). Read more... )

The city was looking its best for the delegates - I'm glad we were able to enjoy it, too!
