Normally, I wouldn't call myself a geek (because normally other people would beat me to the punch) but when if we're handing out PIE? Yeah, I'll wear a neon flashing geek sign if I can have a big enough slice.
And - because we like to spend obscure holidays giving birth in our family... Pi Day also happens to be W's birthday.
To celebrate - he ate a burger the size of his head.
When he ordered the very nice waitress looked him up and down and asked whether or not he thought he could finish it. Since she'd just given him a kiddie menu and offended his newly 14 year old ego I'm pretty sure he took that as a challenge.
|at this point the kids are chanting "Man Vs Food"|
In a bizarre blending of the two holidays we settled on a Pie Cake... there are a LOT of ways to accomplish this - some very cute in fact... but since W LOVES chocolate cake and prefers actual pie crust to Fondant... we decided to go the "simple" route.
You know, bake a chocolate cake, ice it, and cover it with a real honest to goodness pie crust. Made from scratch (Ahem, *cough*... okay, Jiffy mix... I was in a hurry)
yeah, we're blaming all that cracking on the candles... and pretending that I didn't stick all the candles in the already busted up crust hoping people would buy that excuse. We're also learning that in order to make a crust and move it onto a cake you should probably grease and flour the plate a little more thoroughly.
I will say however, that it was reportedly delicious... I myself had a slice of Strawberry Rhubarb at the restaurant... chocolate just isn't my thing.
Next birthdays: First Day of Spring, April Fools' Eve (yes, we have to call it that), and Earth Day... see, we like the obscure holidays a LOT
