My good friend (Kari), who is leaving for Japan in a week to teach English, had a fun farewell/send off party. And I must say… good times indeed with good food, good friends, and good conversations! 🙂
But what was most amazing was what her brother (Ryan) created… MEAT CAKE.
Before I go into detail of what a MEAT CAKE is.. I must tell you.. this is NOT for the faint of heart and weak of stomach. This was created by a guy who LOVES meat. And I mean.. LOVES LOVES meat and grease and everything manly. He used to create MANWICHES… which were basically 1 to 2lb hamburgers smothered in chili and must be eaten with bare hands. I have to say.. I was one of those strong of heart and stomachs that managed to put away a 2lb MANWICH. (Yeah. I used to be pretty disgusting too.)
Anywhos… he created this MEAT CAKE in honor of his sister Kari. And I have to say.. I was SERIOUSLY inspired. I don’t really cook with meat much these days (I think eggs are my main source of protein now), but I SO SO SO want to make this!
May I introduce you to the awesomeness that is the MEAT CAKE?!
Yes. It is made of meat and more meat and mashed potatoes and a sprinkling of veggies. 🙂 It’s like a fancy schmancy meatloaf… for lack of better terms.
Ready for the play by play? 😀
Step 7: FROST.
Step 8: Frost some moreeeee.
Isn’t it beautiful?! AH! I want to make one sooooooo bad now. 🙂
But yes. I shall be quite sad to see Kari go. 😦 But a year in Japan will be quite an exciting adventure for her! 😀 Hurray! I wish you the best Kari, dear!
Anyone up for a MEAT CAKE one of these days? 🙂
