ok, totally in a different vein, here is my second to last tea party at CMU for Spring 2008 (my first year).

Using a recipe from Ice Cream Treats for Fudge Sauce, a box cake, a kosher box cake and a full box of lacies (super chocolate and nutty cookies) I made a chocolate cake castle with a hot fudge sauce moat and a kosher township outside (with no crumbs touching).
I had been wanting to make a fudge sauce moat and since my suitemates had a prospie (prospective student) visiting who was keeping kosher for Passover (as was my suitemate) we picked up the kosher cake mix a Giant Eagle (or geeegul as Pittsburgers pronounce it).
Fatalities: one kitchen towel (but it’s better now).
