For a gorgeous friend's 50th birthday. Her love of red and unfading beauty inspired this poppy cake.

You look brand new
Half a Century looks good on you
You're oozing flair, you're so debonaire
With your 50 years of savoir-faire

Erupt with Joy!

My little monkey turned 5 some months back!
And like most little boys his age, he's a huge fan of dinosaurs and volcanoes.

The most fun part about this cake is the smoke coming out of the volcano made using dry ice and warm water. The volcano is carved out of a 6" cake and rice krispy treats with a plastic cup at the top to hold the dry ice.

It was a lot of fun to watch the smoke waft down. you can have a lots of fun with the remaining dry ice at home. THere are a lot of crazy experiments you can do with it, but remember to ventilate your room. It is CO2 after all.
