Excellent! You'll have to post how they turn out-I've never made those. It's a great book isn't it? (As are her others, though I've made more cupcakes that anything else. Except maybe her peach cobbler. Num).

Spain was...odd. But it did promote dancing? I guess? I loved B&H (I'd love to know the translation), but France I didn't really get. Some of the songs, like Germany sound fantastic on radio cleaned up but were pretty terrible on the show. How about that Latvia? We are wolves of the sea-very catchy!

The icing is pretty thick as is, so it holds up well. It's from Isa's recipe in her cupcake book and I tend to use it on everything from cupcakes to cookies-it's super sweet and looks great. And on the cupcake in the picture I just piled it on! I used a piper from a kit from Target-it was my first time using it but it was really easy. I guess my tip for making fluffy frosting is to beat it for at least 5 minutes. I have a hand mixer I really like and I use it on setting 2 (medium). Oh and another tip is that I make the icing while the cupcakes are baking, wait for the cupcakes to cool completely (around 30 min) and while they are cooling on the counter I put the frosting in the fridge which makes it more solid and easier to make 'tall' when I am ready to frost. Plus I only frost the cupcakes that are going to get eaten at that moment and keep the frosting in the fridge until they are gone. If they all get frosted and sit for a week they lose their visual appeal and flavor.

And now that it's been another day and the whole of Europe knows by now-go Russia! Congrats.

Yummy!
who was your favourite tonight at the eurovision song contest?

They are nummy! I liked Iceland and Denmark...though the winning song (no spoilers  Wink ) wasn't bad.

Tonight I made cupcakes from Isa's Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World...I used the basic golden cupcake recipe with minor adjustments and the vanilla buttercream frosting. I piped it on with a frosting piper I got from Target.  I've been watching the Eurovision Song Contest and it felt like a cupcake night. Just thought I'd share a pic.

Oh, and Totoro helped. Wink

Hi-I made an easy beach wrap skirt to wear to the pool this summer. The actual wrap is about 5 times as big as shown in the picture-it wraps quite a lot! And the ties wrap around on top too. I had fun making it-hope you enjoy viewing the resulting pics! Thanks!

Wow those look great! I love the colors on the middle one. I would never know they were bedsheets!

Sure. The pattern/instructions are in Simply Sewing by Judy Ann Sadler. But once you have that my advice would be, when you have pinned your flaps on front and back, before you sew pin up patches in the gap and hold up the skirt to make sure that the patches are even or at similar (though reverse) angles. I had to re-pin a few times before I got an angle I liked. I tried to make sure that the gap at the hemline was the same width front and back, though in retrospect it would've been ok to have the back wider than the front. Just experiment and have fun! Thanks for posting!

I took a pair of jeans from a thrift store and transformed them into a skirt. Then I picked up some discount fabric from the craft store and made a really simple belt to jazz it up a bit. Enjoy looking at my Zucchero Skirt! Thanks!
