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.
