Happy Fourth of July!

That is that weirdest pie I’ve ever seen.
I love it.
(Yes, I’ve led a sheltered life.)
The pie is from the Kraft foods web site. I can’t believe that it’s truly that color (and no, I didn’t Photoshop it). Actually, for advertising, they have to use ‘real’ food, which is a very, very scary thought.
I realize I’m about 5 months out of step with your post, but I can’t help it. I have been unfortunate enough to overhear someone next to me at the supermarket checkout see the picture of something similar (the pastel version?) on the usual women-are-suckers magazine cover and boast about how well it turned out last week. Scariest thing about it is not the Red Devil (forget what that brand was for, but I can still picture the little fork-tailed cartoon) red layer. It is also not the toilet-cleaner blue layer. The impossible tub-caulking white layer in the middle, complete with fake waves, gets my vote. I’m sure the ingredients list hairspray for extra hold. It would, therefore, be THE perfect dessert to serve the current occupants of the White House and their friends. It’s a floor polish–they really need that right about now–and a dessert topping! But what security alert level do those colors represent?
