Thoughts on the 2011 International Pizza Cake Day

Well, it's been about a week since this year's International Pizza Cake Day celebration, and I'm finally getting over the post-celebration blues.

Don't get me wrong - the celebration we had was AWESOME! Pizza and Pizza Cake were enjoyed by all, and the whole event was an incredible success. It's just that after such an awesome high, there's naturally a little bit of low. But a week has gone by, and I'm now up to sharing some thoughts on the 2011 celebration:

1. A great International Pizza Cake Day celebration starts with free pizza! My employer caught the Pizza Cake fever this year, and provided a free pizza lunch to our whole team - this is a really great way to kick off the celebration - it brings everyone together and really puts everyone in a celebratory mood.

2. Pizza + Cake = Pizza Cake
    This year, we ordered a Pizza Cake and had it delivered - the Pizza Cake was delivered in a traditional pizza box, and all party attendees held their breath as the box was opened and the Pizza Cake was revealed (more details on the cake later!):

3. International Pizza Cake Day is about enjoying a slice of Cake That Looks Like a Pizza with people that you love. While I love me some Pizza Cake while chillaxing on the couch at home by myself, it's even better to share Pizza Cake with the people you love - this day is about having fun with the entire PC Community!

So there are some of my initial thoughts... in the upcoming weeks I want to share some more details on the celebration, as well as an in-depth analysis of  the actual Pizza Cake we enjoyed at this year's celebration.

Keep that Pizza Cake spirit alive!

Happy International Pizza Cake Day!

It's finally here - the day us Pizza Cake fanatics wait for all year long! Happy International Pizza Cake Day to all of you!

I'm pretty pumped up about the day - big things are in store. I'm starting out by finalizing our order for today's pizza lunch at the office. After that, the traditional cutting of the Pizza Cake will follow! I'm pretty busy this morning working out the final details of the celebration, but I'll be sure to post again later.

I apologize for the delay in posting - I was just a little depressed this weekend. I let you all know that I was planning on trying out a new Pizza Cake recipe on Saturday night. I was pretty pumped up about this new recipe - it was given to me by a known innovator in the Pizza Cake world (more on this later - I'm hoping to score an exclusive interview!), and I thought that this would be a certain success.

Unfortunately, it was not to be so. I don't think there's a problem with the recipe - it took a lot of preparation, and all of the ingredients seemed just right to create a perfect Cake That Looked Like a Pizza. There were detailed instructions on hand-crafting the toppings, and I have to say that this 'sauce' was some of the most realistic I've seen yet!

I spent much of Saturday afternoon preparing this Pizza Cake - by 5pm I had already prepared and cooked the crust, the sauce was mixed and ready to go, and I had most of the toppings laid out on the kitchen counter. I was ready to load the Pizza Cake with sauce and toppings when my mom called. I went into my bedroom to talk to her, and when I came out an hour later, I was horrified to find that my lovable Schnauzer, Ferdinand, had climbed onto the counter and devoured much of the Pizza Cake! Most of the crust was eaten, and what wasn't was on the kitchen floor. The toppings were chewed up and scattered all over the kitchen. It was a total disaster.

Needless to say, I was so upset that I took a bath and went to bed shortly thereafter. But I did let Ferdinand sleep at the foot of the bed that night - all was forgiven. I couldn't really blame him for it - I guess our canine friends enjoy Pizza Cake as much as us humans do!!

I'll try that recipe again at some point in the future, but I first need to make sure that Ferdinand is out of the house! ;-)

Only a few short days are left until International Pizza Cake Day - time to finalize those party plans!

Saturday Morning Pizza Cake

It's Saturday morning, and I just woke up with Pizza Cake on my mind. I think todays menu calls for generous servings of Pizza Cake for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I may try a new recipe tonight - I'll be sure to let all of you Pizza Cake Fanatics know how it turns out.

Remember - a slice is nice, but two slices are twice as nice!
