I attended a friend’s birthday party today who was turning 30.
The first part of the day was planned to be a time-speed-distance road rally which is where teams (consisting of a driver and navigator) follow instructions to travel a route and arrive at checkpoints precisely on time.
Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate and the rally was called off after the first checkpoint due to snow. We plan to reschedule the rally for sometime early next year.
After the rally we all headed to my friend’s condo in Seattle for the party. I should point out that he is one of the guys who plays D&D with us each week at my house. Along that theme, he went all out this year and had a custom cake made by Mike’s Amazing Cakes in Redmond.
The cake was nothing short of amazing both in size and artistic quality:
As mentioned, the cake was D&D themed and what could be more iconic than a red dragon? The dragon sat on a Chessex Battlemat surrounded by gold coins (edible white chocolate) and clutched an oversized D20 die in its right claw.
When it came time to have desert it was almost a shame to cut into such a great looking cake. The cake was delicious and completely set a new bar for awesome nerdy celebration. Thanks for the great party and happy birthday Ignatius!
