Leprechaun Trap Cake

Happy St. Pattie’s Day! It’s been a while since I downed any green beer or got pinched for not wearing green on this holiday. Thinking back to my younger, partying days makes me a bit nostalgic (didn’t you know that Koreans are the “Irish of the Orient”? ;-)), but considering my current level of fatigue I am glad to be home, away from the drunken masses.

I’ve seen some awesomely creative salutes to St. Patrick’s Day on my Google Reader today, but the cake below was hands-down the best. The fragile pretzel bars underneath the gold that is meant to break under the weight of a leprechaun, the rainbow filling, the pretzel ladder…it’s an ingenious design of a cake that actually looks yummy too — a rare combination (I believe) in today’s designer cakes.

    I found both your blog and this cake today with my Google reader play! I found myself going through 10 pages of your blog before I knew it. That’s when I stumbled upon your post “Keepin’ It Real”. I just have to say that I really like your writing and the fact you aren’t all bright, shiny and perfect. I’m not a mom, but even just as another woman just trying to make it day to day, it’s nice to have someone to relate to. So keep it up! You’ve just gained a new faithful reader =)

  4. That is awesome! I love stuff like that! I wish I could make something that was that pretty. So festive. :)

  5. Cutest freakin cake EVER!

    Cute cake!

    Being Irish and living in Ireland we usually take advantage of the day off but let the foreigners do the celebrating, at the very most bringing kids to a parade and eating something green that you can only get that day. This kind of makes me want to get into the spirit.

    But one small thing. It’s NOT St Pattie’s day. St Paddy’s yes, Patty no. Don’t know why but it’s a thing over here. Here’s a funny site to explain it.

    Love the blog though.
