Several of you correctly guessed the identity of the grey goo of my picture contest. Dana, Jammie J., Dulciana, and Linda all guessed it or were closer-than-close: it's frosting.
Miz Delphi Chassis and Linda win honorable mentions for their creative, cat-related guesses.
But no one guessed what this grey goo would be used for. So I'll give you a multiple choice test:
a. It's not cake frosting; it's hair frosting, a special kind that actually hides the grey in your hair.
b. It was for a birthday cake for a friend who is turning 40; the theme of the party is "Old and Gray."
c. It was made to celebrate Ohio State's victory over Florida in the BCS Championship Game.
d. It was part of a fun little party to celebrate the long-awaited completion of our bathroom remodeling. It was, indeed, meant to look like spackling. Other "snacks" included "baseboard cookie bars," "rain-showerhead cookies," and a bowl of punch with a rubber ducky swimming around in it.
e. It wasn't supposed to be grey. The color was actually a mistake. I should just use the canned Duncan Hines stuff in the future.
Correct guess wins a PRIZE!
