We love delicious foods that appear to be something other than what they actually are. California-based Imnopeas posted a recipe and detailed tutorial on Instructables on how to make Cake Fries, crinkle cut french fry-shaped cakes that is paired with a red raspberry ‘ketchup’. A store-bought pound cake is cut with a zig-zag knife, and then baked to look like crinkle cut fries. Pureed raspberries are the base of the ‘ketchup’. So simple! So yummy! Imnopeas was inspired by a recipe by Bob Blumer of Food Network’s The Surreal Gourmet.

What’s better than a nice hot and crispy french fry? Uhh, nothing, but these faux french fries made from pound cake are pretty darn tasty! With summer right around the corner, these dessert fries are the perfect addition to any bbq or summer bash.

Guys.  GUYS.  We should totes do this for the cocktail party/banquet at RG!

[The Rusty Gear] Important News, PLEASE READ

Hi there, pals! It’s me, FacebonesYour Rusty Gear organizers here, with an important announcement:

Due to budget constraints and contract disagreements, we have had to end out relationship with the Hampton Inn Boston/Natick, where The Rusty Gear was originally planned. But believe it or not, this is actually good news! Because we’ve now found a better, more affordable location.

The Hampton Inn has already gone ahead and cancelled all the reservations made under our group, so no one has to worry about fees. To avoid putting everyone’s names out there, if you made a reservation with the Hampton in, and would like to see that your name is on the cancellation list - send Pirateking42 a note/PM. She will send you to the document.  if you have made a reservation but your name is NOT listed, please contact the Hampton Inn immediately to resolve the issue and make sure you avoid fees. Their reservation number is: (508) 653-5000

New location details:
The conference will now be taking place June 29th to July 1st (with recommended arrival time Thursday evening, on the 28th), in the coastal town of Lynn, Massachusetts, just 8 miles from downtown Boston and 5 miles from Logan airport. The administration of Leisure Tower, an apartment building in Lynn that’s a quick walk from the ocean shore, has graciously offered us all the function space we need free of charge! This means we can now provide our attendees with amenities we couldn’t before, such as free food throughout the weekend, more registration package goodies, and far better priced transportation to and from the airport than what the Hampton Inn could offer.

We’re also happy to announce that we’ve found a new, significantly more affordable place to stay, for those of you who need it.  So if you’re not local to Boston (or if you just want to minimize your commute), we recommend the Motel 6 in Danvers, just half an hour from our conference location

We will be providing shuttle transportation to and from the airport, as well as to and from the conference building, for anyone staying at this location.  If you chose to stay elsewhere but still need a ride, let us know and we will try our best to set one up for you!

Dean: “Well, Mr. Offdensen, I wanted to come up with a program for The Rusty Gear, but I think it might be too late.”
