Happy Feb. 1! 5 Holidays!
There is a lot going on! Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day / Baked Alaska Day / Serpent Day / Lace Day / Decorating w/ Candy Day
I combined some of the holidays into 2 projects and there is 1 musical reference for the other holiday. Check out the individual posts!
For Lace Day, a reference to "Leather & Lace" by Stevie Nicks & Don Henley. I'm also wearing lace today. :)
It is convenient that "Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast" is also "Baked Alaska" Day because if you make a Baked Alaska, then you are eating ice cream for breakfast. :) I made a easy Mini-Baked Alaska from the Food Network app.
What is "Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast" Day?
"It is thought that the unofficial holiday was first created in the 1960s by Florence Rappaport in Rochester, New York as a way to entertain her children on a cold and snowy morning. Her brilliant idea took root and has now become a holiday celebrated by people around the world."
What is a Baked Alaska?
A Baked Alaska is ice cream on a sponge cake topped with a meringue that is browned: so there is ice (cream) & fire involved! For more information on the history of this fun dessert, check out
For "Serpent Day" and "Decorating with Candy Day", I made a large snake cake, which I decorated with candy.
What is Serpent Day?
"Across religions and cultures, the serpent has been used as a symbol of evil, medicine, fertility and much more. Recognizing serpents and snakes alike, February 1st observes National Serpent Day... Within our research, we were unable to identify the creator of National Serpent Day."
What is Decorating With Candy Day?
"The creator or inventor of Decorating With Candy Day is still unknown...So the Decorating With Candy Day is a day to being creative with those sweet decorations."
