Billy Crudilly -

I soooo depends on what kind of icing, if any, it's got on top. True German rum cake is always chocolate. But if you're doing a choco-icing the yellow will wash down easier.

Do you cook it with rum, or do you drizzle the rum on top after its cooked, using the cake like a big rum sponge?

And - rum cake with white icing & toasted coconut on top would be real nice. Spread some little pieces of pineapple through it and you got something.

Cam......you've never had my rum cake? Holy shit, man! This is not German Rum Cake. This "Tortuga Rum Cake"
The cake IS cooked with rum in it, then it's soaked in a rum "glaze" , (my secret sauce) for 30 minutes before it's flipped over and the latest ones have had a glaze over the top that I've perfected in the last month or so. I believe my rum cakes to be just about where they need to be. I've tried the pineapple chunks.....they make big soggy blobs in the cake.
The Chocolate cake has Macadamia nuts on top and the yellow has walnuts.

This time I am not going to forget my cooler. I felt like such a dead-beat last time. I'll bring my usual beer and Pepsi. If I get up early enough I'll pick up some donuts.

See ya tomorrow!

In the words of Buzzy....Cheeky Out!

I'm all set. I got the cookies, the water and the Coke Zero. I even remembered the ice this time.

The chisels are all packed up. I've actually been doing a little carving every day since the last Chop. I may be ready to go out and buy some green stain for the Shag tikis soon.

Same time as usual Bill?

Same time Kate. Or if you're early, that's cool, too.

Cheeky, we have lots of coolers if you want to just bring the goods.

Not going to be able to make it tomorrow.

Have a good time, and hopefully I'll be able to make the next one.

My brother from Salt lake and I will be there but I didn't have time to bake. Too much going on, too much clutter with the packing and all. See ya'll in the AM. For now, I'm going to play Grand Theft Auto and drain a bottle of Sangiovese.

This month's Chop started out on a slightly somber note as one of Bill's neighbors was having a wake. Imagine mourning the loss of a loved one with Billy the Crud swearing in the background.


Cam actually showed up this month.


But then we lost him in the tall grass.


Boys are silly.


Very silly.


Mieko got some new pieces of wood from Bill and immediately started working on them.


Billy's friend Jeremy really loves his tiki.


I got some carving done and still had time to shop. Here's my first 4WD tiki in his new home.



It was another great Chop. Thanks for hosting again Bill.

That was a LOT of fun.

I did a good swath of carving, Buzzy and Crudnick both showed off some masterpieces of carvosity, and the musubi was the yum. Mieko seems to have run out of Spam and used hot dogs for the rest, and they were greeeaaat.

Billy's explanation of current news events was classic.

And hey - Wheeler's "Flattop" is incredible up close.

Sam, we all missed you and Pops, and tamales!

I had another great time at the chop. You guys are all great to hang with, and get inspired by. I'm up for a chop most weekends, official or unofficial, since that's what I do most weekends anyway!

Good fun, as always.
Thanks to Wheeler for hosting once again and providing a nice pile of exotic woods to pick through.

I managed to carve up the concrete slab that Musubi Mom gave me after I got home lastnight:



thanks MusubiMom!
Thanks to Buzzard for the ride, and everyone else for the food and drinks.

See you all next time, if not before!
Buzzy Out!
