|This picture presents a lot of what is right in this world. A fat tub of buttercream, peanut butter chocolate chip rice crispy wheels, sticky Chick-O-Stick marshmallow rice crispy wheels, onigiri molds, high-voltage kombucha, Chick-O-Sticks, an iphone (best new toy ever), a ginormous offset spatula and my best friend (who has awesome frosting skills).|
|Seriously, allow the size of this offset spatula to set in. It was sunny while we worked, and it cast bright reflections all over the kitchen. They nearly blinded us and made Tilda, the Boston Terrier coo-coo. Serious kitchen tool, do not mess with giant metal spatulas.|
This top view does not do the cake justice, since the blonde colored rice crispy stars get lost into the mounds of buttercream. Just look hard and the magick will reveal itself to you.
|We alternated two layers: marshmallow Chick-O-Stick rice crispy wheels, Chick-O-Stick buttercream, peanut butter chocolate chip rice crispy wheels, more buttercream and repeat. We formed candle-holding stars using Kim's onigiri molds, which was a stroke of pure Kim brain brilliance.|
|In case you don't know, Chick-O-Sticks make the world go round, and damn, that is one short dress.|
Good thing this party is virtual, 'cuz soup at potlucks gets tricky. I never remember to bring a bowl.
