Cake Party Vignette

Monaco Bay Weyr-Candidate and Weyrling Barracks
Huge in its own right, this series of interlinked caverns is the complex that houses both candidates and weyrlings. Fashioned out of a multitude of hollows, it serves as a central gathering area as well as classroom. A number of deep pockets have been laborously smoothed to provide comfortable dwellings for the young dragons and their riders away from the weather of the central area, and affording them some privacy but not much. Above, the cavern opens to the sky, holding out the worst of the island's weather but allowing an aerial exit and providing natural lighting to the area. Branching off from this cavern is an opening that leads to the exercise yard, and another carved passage that leads onto the hatching sands - though this entrance is typically closed tight to prevent mischief.


OOC NOTE: This is a little something for everyone to simply rp around as the event wasn't able to happen on camera with no one being able to make it. Feel free to RP around this as happening in the middle of the night. Thanks to Viren for the awesome cake desc!

The Autumn evening fades to night. All throughout the weyr as the time approaches near midnight people are heading to bed. Some may be thinking of their plans for tomorrow. Some of the events that happened this very evening. But no Weyr sleeps all the night through. Tonight the candidate barracks doesn’t sleep a wink. Oh there might be some slumbering in their beds. Rolled up in the covers over their heads to escape the noise. But…but there are some that are awake.

One might ask why the room is dimly lit with several glows. One might ask why there are candidate mingling about in their pajamas. The main cavern that is used for the candidate awaiting hatching time is lite with several glows. A rather large table has been set up at the front of the room with any kind of drink imaginable purloined from the kitchens. Food as well as been creatively confiscated for surely this isn’t a secret gathering of people is it? Secret or not, the entire thing seems to be orchestrated by at least one perhaps more. But it is Sonya who is in the midst of finishing setting up the table of food and drink. In the middle of the night. “Cmon…where’s the cake?” is heard from the black haired candidate as she is setting a plate of meatrolls down whilst trying to discourage certain winged creatures from partaking in them.

…and let there be cake! In all its glory the cake arrives ladened by its creator whom may or may not dusted in cake flour. Was the kitchen cleaned up afterwards? Who knows!

What could be better than one cake? Two of them of course! A large tray has been turned into a vague approximation of the sands thanks to the addition of a layer of overbaked cookies that have been crumbled and spread across the top. On top of this dark base lie two large, brightly coloured, oval cakes that can only be supposed to be eggs - though instead of being smooth like an eggshell the frosting is textured to more represent dragonhide. The left, and largest, egg cake is a bright saffron yellow, though it's here the mind games begin. Once cut it reveals a rich klah flavoured cake layered with spiced cream. The right hand egg is a rich, deep, brown but once again the center does not match the 'shell', this being a citron flavoured cake layered with a light nut cream.

Once cake is there it gets this little cake party started. Painful as it is to cut up this beautifully decorated cake it must be done in order to partake in the yumminess! So cut into it does Sonya, passing out pieces to people as they came up.

And so the little meet and greet starts with pajama clad candidates enjoying cake and other finger food treats obtained from the kitchens by no doubt some cute faces of candidates. Unless it gets too rowdy it’ll no doubt go several candle marks
