Edible Geek: Helio Ocean Cake

May 29 2007 - 9:04am

I must admit, I had a little warning that LilPeaPod [1] was planning on making her boyfriend a special Helio Ocean Cake [1] so it was all I could think about this weekend. It turned out a bajillion times more beautiful than I dreamed and certainly outdoes the Rubik's Cube cake [1], matching his and her TiVo cakes [1] and even an assortment of geeky wedding cakes [1]. "I wanted to do something really special for the BBQ we were having in his honor," said LilPeaPod. "After tossing around ideas of gifts, I came up empty handed. He has everything that he wants! What could top his Helio Ocean?! That's right my friends, A Helio Ocean CAKE!!! My Mom helped me with the details, walked me through frosting the cake, how to use fondant, painting the pieces with food coloring and four point five hours later we had this masterpiece."

"Needless to say my boyfriend was blown away and I got kudos from all his tech loving pals," added LilLeaPod. "And food coloring stains on my new Yumsugar apron. Finally broke it in."
