My first attempt at using fondant for more than just a cover! In fact, I didn't want the whole cake fondant, so it's buttercream frosting with fondant characters. The top frog layer was the smoosh cake!
my sister and i have been using this recipe for awhile. it makes great stromboli and calzones too! brush with egg wash (yolk mixed with water) and sprinkle with garlic...yum! we also sometimes sub some wheat flour in place of the white-that's good too.
So I found this cool old Cavatelli Maker at Salvation Army last week, but it is missing the instructions! Does anyone have a good idea how to use it and a nice recipe to go along with those instructions?! It's an old, metal, handcrank version. Made by Vitantonio Mfg. Co. and says it makes cavatelli and gnocchi large or small. I know gnocchi, and how to make that by hand, but it's the cavatelli that interests me. Thanks fellow Craftsters!!!
okay! i got a batch done and they were excellent! my filling ran out too, so on the next batch i wet down the edges of both sides then crimped them together. worked like a dream! blueberry and strawberry poptarts-gone in a flash! thanks again for the recipe!
It took a little over six months to handstitch the top, then after a year break from working on it, it took another six months to quilt and bind it and it's just about done...a few more to quilt! I loved making this quilt. It was so easy to work on in little bits here and there. My sister and I worked on it together, which was tricky since we live in Ecuador and Alaska! It has travelled all over! Enjoy the pics...
