Dorkbake!

Dorkbake has come and gone. Eric and I, or "Team Roswell," triumphed and took 1st Place! I know the mint chocolate star-shaped cake (with vanilla cream filling) was not the tastiest food cooked by the 100-watt light bulbs in competition, but I think we won over the judges with our sleek and simple oven design, as well as our "zazz." We were the team that went all out in terms of costumes and presentation and it paid off.

We had our 1950's flyer saucer inspired oven designed, and mostly built, before we left for Utah. Eric has his Ro-Man costume from Halloween, but I had to get my outfit together and we had to finalize our recipe. We got the mixture for our little cake down, but the ingredients provided at the bake-off were a bit different. So, we had to improvise a bit.

We got a write up on Boing Boing today and I posted a couple of photos to flickr. All in all, it was a good time. I just don't think I'll be cooking in a sequined mini-dress and 5-inch heel hooker boots anytime soon!

Dorkbake... heh. Congrats again. I said to Dave in surprise, Boing Boing is a blog! He looked at me with fond exasperation and said "It's THE blog. It's one of the top 20 blogs." So there, you ARE famous!

Congrats on the boing-boing write-up. (There's a sentence I don't think I've ever written in my life.)

Love the outfits, and the cake sounds pretty good, too.
