MAKE YOUR OWN HALLOWEEN POLKA DOT CAKE!

Another neat recipe I found while looking for some cool and interesting Halloween ideas and inspiration.  This is brought to you by  snowybliss.blogspot.com.  A really cool cake for that next Halloween party or get together.  Good luck!





And the inside is even better... because I made a PolkaDotCake!

I've had this idea in my brain for awhile. It turned out pretty good. But I think after my first attempt I'd tackle it a bit differently next time. I'll give you my thoughts on that after the directions. Here's how I did it.

I have this little nifty cake pop maker. It's fun, especially for the kids. It doesn't make the decadent bakerella cake pops, they are actually more like a donut hole. But they are quick, easy and so far fail proof. Anyway… this is how I made the polka dot cake. Step 1

4. Large Knife
5. Smaller Steak Knife
6. Large Spoon

IRONMAN TRIATHLON FROM KONA, HAWAII!

An Ironman Triathlon is one of a series of long-distance triathlon races organized by the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC) consisting of a 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25 km) bike and a marathon (42.195 kilometres (26.219 mi)) run, raced in that order and without a break. Most Ironman events have a strict time limit of 17 hours to complete the race, where the Ironman race starts at 7 AM, the mandatory swim cut off for the 2.4-mile (3.9 km) swim is 2 hours 20 minutes, the bike cut off time is 5:30 PM, and all finishers must complete their marathon by midnight.
   The name Ironman Triathlon refers to both the original Ironman triathlon and the annual Ironman World Championship. Also called Ironman Hawaii, the world championships of the event, held annually in Hawaii since 1978 (with an additional race in 1982), are now preceded by a series of qualifying events. Ironman Triathlon became known for its grueling length, harsh race conditions, and television coverage.
