we holla for hula

Two years ago, it was fairies, princesses, and ballerinas. Hence FARBIE.

Last year, it was Star Wars. Hence YODA.

This year, it was hula dancing, coconuts, and leis. Hence...



Here's how it happened.

Step 1: Bake a chocolate-pumpkin bundt cake.
Stick an old Barbie in it.
Glue her in with gooey, hot brownies.
Eat as much brownie batter as possible.



Mmm. Chocobarbie.

Step 2. Mix up some green buttercream and start piping it on.
Realize it looks like slime and do the grass skirt texturizing with a fork.
Lick the fork.
A lot.


Step 3. Realize that the skirt is a little lumpy,
but no one will notice because it's so freaking YUM.

Spackle it with glittery green sugar crystals, just for funsies.

Step 4. Add candles, sing, serve, eat.

And eat.

And eat.



See the other cake in back?

It occurred to me at the last minute that there might not be enough cake to go around.

And even worse, there might not be leftovers.
So we picked up another one at Target.
It was pretty, went with the theme, and tasted excellent,
although not as good as Hularbie.



Step 5. Put the last slice of Hularbie in the freezer in case of emergency.

In short, it was an excellent party.

8 big girls in hula skirts and leis, tearing up the house.

Hula heaven.


My little biscuit is growing up.

5 whole years of biscuit.

Sniffle.

Hula.

Sniffle.
