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!
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!!!
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...
i've been hooked on making these all day...and here is my favorite one so far, i used an old t-shirt and some crazy red fabric to accent it. it has a liner and is still really lightweight and can fit a ton of yarn and roving in it!
