Ice Cubes and Blue Cake
I just have to get this off my chest.
I like water. I like cold water. I like cold water filled with ice most of all. See you just learned something about me, but that’s not the whole post.
My work provides water. My work provides sorta kinda almost cool filtered water. My work does not provide an ice machine or maker to chill that sorta kinda almost cool filtered water
OK were almost to the point.
We have 3 ice cube trays in our work freezer. We have 3 ice cube trays in our work freezer that I fill constantly so we can all enjoy ice. We have 3 ice cube trays in our work freezer that I fill constantly so we can all enjoy ice…and hopefully I can get in on that ice joy too.
OK, here the actual point and rant.
Where’s my ice dude? I strolled in to the break room and opened the freezer, what do I find??? How about all 3 ice cube trays void of ice? How about the ice holder, void of ice? How about the ice cube trays void of ice ANDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD water to start making more ice?
Is it that hard? I’m not asking you to change out the toilet paper roll people nor am I asking you to refill the printer when you know it's out of paper...or un-jam it.... I’m asking all the users to participate in the normal office function of ice making, you know the important stuff.
I also left a very nice, slightly passive aggressive note on the refrigerator after I refilled the cube trays…it was tossed in the trash fairly soon…and guess what???? When I went to get more ice, all the trays were empty again.
That’s just rude.
Because my co-workers are making me blue, I want to feature a blue cake. Nothing special here except the addition of some food coloring for kick. I tried to make it look like waves, sort of like the ones I plan on making with my co-workers.
It’s super easy, just like filling the ice cube trays.
Butter cream Frosting
Blue food dye
Make cake. Make butter cream and add dye little by little so that you can have a wide variety of blue colored buttercream on your cake, spread on some light blue, spread on some dark blue etc... Eat. I would say chase it with some ice water but there is not a chance of there being any ice. Enjoy it with some luke warm water.
