I am trying to make a birthday cake for someone and the recipe called for a white cake mix. I accidentally picked up a white angelfood cake mix. I don't have an angelfood cake pan, and the cake was supposed to be a layer cake with a buttercream frosting.
Would I be able to use the angelfood cake mix as it is? Is there anything I should add to the mix that would make it sturdier or closer to the regular ol' cake that I am going for?
Any tips or advice you can give would be greatly appreciated as I won't be able to go out and get another mix!
Hey guys, I tired making Madeleines for the first time tonight. The recipe that i followed had pretty high reviews, and the plain madeleines came out fine. The second batch that I did, I tried the chocolate variation. They tasted fine when they came out, but the batter was A LOT thicker than the plain one had been, thick enough that it didn't spread into the pans. I baked them anyway and they tasted fine...they just didn't look as polished as the others, and they puffed up more.
If someone could look at this, and help me figure out what went wrong, I would really appreciate it. My theory is that it came from "Substitute 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder for 2 tablespoons of the flour"...like, too much dry, not enough wet?
So my question is this: should i try to resize the burda pattern or does someone have another pattern suggestion? If i should use the Burda, it is important to note that this would be my first time resizing a pattern, and i don't know how to do that.
i have been looking for a pikachu stuffie/stuffie bag pattern for a while. i came across this one: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=12422252 but it is sold out here and i can't find it anywhere else. does anyone know either where i can find this pattern, or a pattern similar to this? thanks!
ok, so my grandma gave me a whole bunch of vintage brocade that her brother brought back from either japan or korea when he was in the war. i think that its about 50 years old or something...i'm not entirely sure. anyway, its green with like, pagodas and trees and stuff on it. i want to use it for something really special, not just another bag or something i'll never use. i think that it is silk, and i know that its not very wide but as my measuring tape ran away, i don't know the exact width. its also pretty long. maybe 12 feet long (4 yards).
if anyone has pattern or project suggestions, please let me know.
i'm making a ragdoll for one of my friends, and i have it all complete, clothes and everything...except the hair. i don't want it in a updo, so i'm not sure how to attach the hair. i really like http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=299358.0 but i'm not really sure how it goes together... if anyone has some tutorials/tips/instructions that they have used and could tell me, i'd be super happy!
i was thinking a cool swap would be an arm warmer/ glove swap. a lot of people have become quite good at this project, from crochet to knitting to sewing. this would be a good swap for newbies to swapping (such as me), as the only decision to be worked out with partner is what type/length of glove/arm warmer to make. for example, crochet short vs the ever so fancy sewn elbow length. partners would be based off of what a person is interested in and what people are capable of making. i haven't swapped before, so someone else would need to be in charge, but i really think this would be a good swap for teens and first time swappers!
i want to make the suicide squad jacket that Arisa Uotani wears to Torhu's mother's grave. i like the jacket, but i don't really know what pattern to use to make it. it is a fairly long jacket, but i couldn't find a good shot online. if anyone either knows what i am talking about or knows a good pattern to use, please tell me!
i was wondering, how much fragrance oil can you use in m&p soap? i'm kinda new at this and don't want to horribly mess anything up...i got the basics of melting...and pouring...but i don't really know how to fragrance. i just got some nice fragrance and don't want to mess anything up or make the soap un-usable. any tips? thanks!
