Decadent Delight – SOAK* 10th anniversary Cake



Colors: blue, purple, cream, black, white, a little bit of red, and a dash of gold.

We submitted an adapted version of Moon Cake to stand as the SOAK* 2014 main Burnable Structure (BS), and it was accepted! Thank you Burning Man Portland and SOAK*, LLC for placing your trust in us, and the community members who choose to participate. We are excited about facilitating the production of a Decadently Delightful 10th anniversary Cake, with open participation and radical inclusion. )'(
