It's the summer solstice 'round here and that means pony cake and swag! I gave the rice paper another go, this time using food dye dissolved in water to colour in the edible-ink marker line-art. That worked! Next, I'll have to find a way to make the rice paper taste good. It's really chewy and tasteless.

My camera is in a death spiral. Every few pictures it gives me a "lens control error" and stops functioning. Almost all the pictures I took of the cake were blurry on the right half of the image. Fortunately, I take a lot of pictures.

The cake was too sweet. I bought it because it cost less than the strawberry shortcake, it was chocolate and it had a lot of whitespace on which I could drop my drawing. People ate it anyway. My coworkers seemed impressed with the artwork, but no one seemed to realize that it was humorous. I had thirteen items to give away plus several blind bags. Twenty-seven people had their names in the draw for those 13 items which included two "Fan Series" Guardians of Harmony figures and nine plush ponies.

The next cake is for Rarity's Element of Harmony day. What to draw?

South Jersey, Valley Forge

Saturday's trip was to South Jersey because I knew it would be easy to hit the one million points milestone there. I got that fairly early in the day in Lawnside. After that, I went to the dead Burlington Center Mall. It surprised me how quiet the mall area is now since I remember this mall being moderately busy not so long ago. With no traffic in the parking areas though, it's gradually turning into a Munzee playground. Heavy rain in the afternoon put an end to the day's Munzee spree, but I stopped at the Asian food market in Cherry Hill for some goodies.

On Sunday, I went to Valley Forge National Historical Park. There were a bunch of virtual Munzees around the visitor center and the first stop along the park road but I also went inside to see the exhibits. It was fascinating. They have a number of display cases showing the gaming/entertainment items, cooking utensils, and General Duportail of the Revolutionary War era. It's interesting how some items, e.g. dice, cards, needles, and thimbles, are pretty basic and haven't changed much in over two centuries. There are also recreations of log cabin soldiers' quarters out along the park road. Those also show what the bunk beds and living space might have looked like inside. After that, I hit some Munzee clusters in Fort Washington, Dresher, and North Wales, and found a geocache in Franconia before dinner.

The munzees... )
