Happy Birthday, Utah IKEA!
Last week I received this message from some friends and ex-coworkers in Utah via Gmail chat:
Dear Becky, One year ago, this Friday, the IKEA in Draper opened to much praise from individuals like yourself. In celebration, **** and I challenge you to a cake-off. -****
Then a few days later I got the official rules.
Becky, I'll have you know this is one 'cake-off' you are likely to never forget. Official Cake-Off Rules: 1. Object MUST be a cake. 2. Said object must also be in some way related to IKEA or fit to the standards and aims of the IKEA/design gods. 3. You have until Friday to complete the challenge. 4. (This blog is rated PG and rule #4 was not PG.)
So without further adieu here are the details of my IKEA cake:
*Swedish IKEA colors, IKEA building, IKEA meatballs
*There are many--vanilla with whipped cream filling, devils food with vanilla, devils food with chocolate filling and chocolate chips.
What I want you to notice:
*Mount Meatball and the stucco finish on the IKEA building base
What I really want you to notice:
* I did this without all my cake decorating supplies
