Carrie's Chocolate-Strawberry Birthday Cake

Experiment: 070309

We are not gentle tolerant people. We like drastically effective solutions. - Steve VanDevender

I still feel vaguely guilty about this one. I'd had a rough week and was not coming up with any really great ideas. I have to say though that for a basic cake it came out pretty well.

Also under the header of things to feel vaguely guilty about we have this entry. I present to you the "Sam's Wood - Mark II". I wasn't the only one who had a bad week, so after we were all sugared up we retired to the back yard fire-pit to play with napalm made by melting a huge Styrofoam fake fireplace that Kathy had made for her and Ken's Pirate Birthday party in gasoline and then we rode this contraption down the hill. In the dark. While wearing the helmet to give ourselves the illusion of safety. My favorite quote of the evening was "It's very important to wear protection while riding Sam's Wood!"
