2  Sorting Hat Cupcakes in Dessert by patty_o_furniture on: January 13, 2016 07:09:09 PM
What's a Harry Potter party without cupcakes?
Made little sorting hats out of caramel.

And if it's the sorting hat, he has to tell you which house you belong to.  To do that I filled with colored pudding for the different houses.

So when you take a bite, you can see where you belong!

Funny note, when my family all broke into our cupcakes by luck we all got the colored filling of the houses we claim! LOL

chocolate cupcakes & vanilla buttercream were both basic no frills recipes that you could find anywhere.  Pudding, just instant vanilla from a box.

3  Face Paintings - Harry Potter & other characters in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by patty_o_furniture on: January 13, 2016 06:56:57 PM
One of my hobbies has lasted more than six months!   Shocked  LOL
Face paintings, all using professional quality face paints.

I actually tied in a face painting contest with professional painters for this painting.  It then went to a tie breaker and the other person won by one vote.  Guess who I voted for.  Undecided  Owl theme

4  Miniature Gingerbread Necklace in CHALLENGE 111 ENTRIES by patty_o_furniture on: January 07, 2016 11:28:18 AM
Miniature Gingerbread Necklace

My gingerbread challenge project is a Miniature Gingerbread Necklace.  The combination in the rules of "only non-edible parts allowed are a base" as well as "miniature to life-sized" somewhere in my twisted brain sparked an idea to make a miniature attached to a base that was attached to a necklace.  I don't know the exact order of events in my head but that was the inspiration LOL.

A whole tray of minis, no premade kit for me! Needed to make a few because I have kids that will steal my crafting supplies and I wanted some extras in case I wasn't happy with the outcome.

Decorating Fun! Front.  US Quarter for size.

Back, with necklace connector.

Close up of the edible glitter!  IRL it really shines.

In action.  Yes, it is a necklace!  Hangs by itself.

Thanks for looking!

Been hoping abuckshort would post pics, but since it's after Christmas and all the trees are coming down,  I will just go for it. Maybe she can still post tree shots if she has them.  Her favorite potion was felix felicis so gave her a super glittery potion.  And because it was easy for me I made a 9 3/4 too.  Hope she enjoys!

7  Christmas Layered Finger Jello in Cooking: Challenge Entries by patty_o_furniture on: January 03, 2016 10:20:51 AM
My challenge favorite is layered finger jello.

This is something super fun for kids.  For Christmas I do mine with red and green, but you could do any combination of four colors.  Rainbows to other holiday colors.  Cut mine with a vegatable crinkle cutter.  I think it gives such a fun look.  Kids love these, and adults are oftened wow-ed too.

In all honesty, I am not really a fan of the taste of these, LOL.  They taste like a dumb jello jiggler, maybe one of these times I'll try fruit juice instead of water or something else to up the flavor over plain gelatin.  They aren't bad, just in my opinion boring. Buuut, kids are who you really make these for and they are definitely a kid pleaser.  I've never had a kid say they don't like the taste, and usually they are the first plate gone on a row of goodies.

Layered Finger Jello

For Each Colored Layer:  (Make Four Sets)
1 (3 oz) package of jello
1 pack of KNOX gelatin (or 1 TBSP unflavored gelatin)
1 cup boiling water

For The White Layers:
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
4 packs of KNOX gelatin (or 4 TBSP unflavored gelatin)
2 cups boiling water

Mix each colored layer separately in containers.  Let stand until room temperature, stirring occasionally.  (4 colored layers containers, 1 white layer container)  *If any colors begin to set at room temperature you can put the container in a warm water bath or even just microwave it to make it liquid again.  But be sure it isn't too hot before pouring it on another layer.

Pour first color into a 9X13 baking dish, and refrigerate until just barely firm.  It will probably only take about +/- 7 minutes.  

Keep an eye on your jello.  The timing of the firmness is crucial.  
--If the jello is not set up enough the colors will blend and not give a crisp color line.  (This also happens if one of your colors was too hot and melts the previous layer)
--Once it's just barely sticky to the touch, pour the next and the layers will stay together well.
--If the layers are completely firm, in the end jello you will be able to peel some layers apart.  This is FUN for kids, and they are fascinated by it... so not a big deal in my opinion.  I usually try to keep the layers a bit tacky but if one over sets I don't worry about it.  Just something to think about if you are serving these to your picky mother in law!

Pour out 1/3rd of the white mixture on top of your first colored layer.  Refrigerate until just barely firm.

Repeat with all colored and white layers.  Alternating the colors as you wish.

Once all layers are poured let the jello firmly set.  4-8 hours, or even overnight.

Cut into squares, or use long cookie cutters.  

Vegetable Crinkle Cutter.  

Recipe first found on kitchenscrapbook .com but layer jellos have been around for decades.
