1  COOKING / Dessert / American Flag Jello Jigglers on: July 04, 2015 08:04:24 PM
Saw these on youtube and knew I had to make them.  It takes a bunch of jello, but the end was worth it.  Everyone at the block party I took them to kept chatting them up the entire night.  People were fascinated by them.  I was mean and wouldn't tell them the secret of the blue at the top, LOL.  But here's the secret.  You layer them upside down.  Start with the blue as a full base and when it is set cut it into strips, and then layer the red and white over it.

But here's where I found them at,  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=029MeniEifU  They are so fun!  Taste is like a dumb gelatin jiggler, but it's okay enough.  The novelty is good enough to make the taste.

2  COOKING / Dessert / Gluten Free "Donut" Cupcakes on: June 22, 2015 10:40:03 AM
For father's day I made cupcakes for the hubby.  I found cute donut cupcake toppers and liners so used that as my inspiration.  I've been gluten free so decided to make them gf so I could eat them too.  They turned out really good.  With the flour I used (Grandpa's Kitchen) it didn't have the sandy texture that many gf baked goods do, so I was impressed!

Soft and airy, good crumb and texture

GF chocolate cake/cupcakes

1 cup GF flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 tsp xanthan gum
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup cocoa

1 1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350.  Combine dry ingredients in large bowl.  Pour in wet ingredients and beat 2 minutes.  Scoop into cupcake pan with liners, filling about 1/2 full.  Bake 30 mins until toothpick tests clean in center.  Cool and frost.

Those look great!  And I know what you mean about having to learn to bake again for gluten free.  Yikes.

if you didn't use a tank to blow them all up, you must have superhuman lungs of steel! 

LOL, no tank, but I do have a small hand pump I used.

Love the touch the flowers bring visually as well as being part of the concert memorabilia.

9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Little Mermaid Balloon Arch on: May 08, 2015 08:33:47 PM
I'm not big into concerts so when I saw this challenge I knew Broadway was where I was going.  And the first on my Broadway bucketlist is seeing the Little Mermaid.  I love watching youtubes of the show, but I know that can't get half the splendor of actually watching in person.  Some day!

Until then I'll tide myself over with this balloon arch and party set.  It would be for a children's party or a fun mermaid themed event.  I've been having fun learning how to do balloon twisting lately, so thought I'd craft a mermaid up!

Of course the day I want to take pictures it gets windy like crazy and Ariel wants to dive off the arch and the two seaweed columns take a run for it.  The seaweed was even anchored down with small weights and it still ran off over my yard! So into the garage we go.  Sorry for the picture quality, but I wanted to make sure Ariel stood tall!

And just in case this arch motivates you to buy your own Little Mermaid tickets, this QR code will take you to ticketmasters website.

Lots of pics. There's Scuttle and Ursula. Sebastian and Flounder and lots of fishy friends all as balloon sculptures too. I love the strings of balloon bubbles hiding in there as well.


Thanks for looking!  And thanks to ticketmaster for the fun challenge and great prizes!
10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Anamorphic Rubik's Cube on: March 19, 2015 08:00:41 PM
Wanted to try my hand at 3D illusion drawing.  I believe it's called Anamorphic drawing, correct me if I'm wrong.  So made a rubiks as my first, thinking to start with easy block shapes.  Although it will probably be a while if I try anything else. 

Drawn with sharpie and prismacolor pencils.
