it’s almost here! that’s right nerds, Battlestar Galactica (BSG) premieres on Friday! both seanalyn and i are preparing ourselves for this epic event! i am hosting a BSG party at my apartment and inviting lots of hungry guests. seanalyn and i will be brainstorming ideas and recipes for our themed party.
i searched around, found some great ideas online, and added seanalyn & mine:
a frakin’ Battlestar Galactica cake
Marisa from slashfood.com posted this amazing edible artwork by local baker/artist Zoë Lukas, who is in the process of opening up her own bakery in Philly. The chocolate devil’s food cake is ‘filled with raspberry jam and ganache, iced with chocolate buttercream and ganache, decorated with chocolate ships and explosions, silver dragees and silver and gold space dust.’
the Cylon Jack-O-Lantern
Allison from seriouseats.com posted this incredible masterpiece with a working cylon laser eye. although not edible, this would make for a great centerpiece at our party! too bad i’m not that handy at carving pumpkins!
***pictures of her appetizer will follow after our party
i am thinking of taking those Pillsbury Crossiants, stuffing them with crab & cream cheese, and creating foldovers in the shape of cylon raiders. i’ll give the illusion of their notable ‘laser eye’ with a slice of red pepper.
um, we’ll see how this one turns out!
lastly, the Battlestar Drinking game…
on this nerdtastic spacecast community forum, i found an awesome thread with some very creative BSG themed drinks, here’s a few i loved:
1. THE RED DRESS – (AN ODE TO NUMBER SIX)
· 2 parts Gin
· 1 part Pomegranate Juice
· 1 part Cranberry Juice
· a dash of Grenadine
Stir and Serve with a touch of ice in a slender Collins glass.
2. TWISTED MESSIAH – (THE BALTAR COMPLEX)
· 1 part white Tequila
· 1 part Ouzo
· 1 part tomato juice
· a dash of Worcestershire sauce
Shake and serve in an old fashioned glass.
3. SKINJOB – (CYLON LOVER)
· 1 part Bailey’s Irish cream
· 1 part Tequila Rose
· a dash of Amaretto
Shake and serve in a Shot Glass
what i loved even more is that there is actually a Battlestar Galactica drinking game with rules and everything!
please let us know if you have any creative ideas, thoughts, comments, suggestions, etc. we absolutely love hearing from you!
