Mario Cake Makers on the Food Network

mario turtle shellSome may remember the photos I took at my friends Brent & Annette’s wedding cake. They are among my most popular photos with this one having 82 views yesterday, 528 views this week, and 156,585 views in total. 564 people call it a favorite! The cake has appeared in several magazines and online stories and now the makers of the cake, Gateaux, Inc. will be appearing on the Food Network Challenge this Sunday at 7pm. They are competing with 4 other cake makers to make the best Dr. Seuss themed cake. Nerds, set your TiVos!

All Hallows’ Eve bonfire

On Friday I hosted a bonfire and Halloween party at our house. We did it up right and had a lot of fun. It was the type of party where I ended up falling asleep on the kitchen floor – which I actually did. I took photos of many of the guests as they arrived and my friend Jesse took a bunch more as he was appropriately costumed as a member of the paparazzi. Check out my photos and a few of his in a new Alt Text photo gallery (updated link) as well as a bunch more at his site.

Extra Credit: For those who are paying attention to such things, I also just returned from a long weekend in San Diego. We had really bad weather by Southern California standards as it was in the 60’s and rained several days. We still had fun going out in the Gaslamp Quarter, checking out some animals at the zoos, and of course, taking in Tijuana. There are a few photos of that trip up in the galleries as well.
