Class/Challenge : May Headmistress challenge
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Strawberry Shortcake Birthday cake
Project Description:  Unlike Harry, my nieces have had a birthday cake from me for every birthday they have ever had.  This was Miss M's first year to choose her own theme, which was strawberry shortcake, so I created all sorts of decorations because nothing could be found in town.  The "recipe" was more of a box, but I'll tell you what I did to achieve the look.

Ingredients:
1 box Duncan Hines Chocolate cake mix
1 box Duncan Hines Strawberry cake mix
1 can Duncan Hines frosting base
1 packet Duncan Hines strawberry shortcake icing flavour packet
red food colouring
green icing
white icing
printable puppets from www.strawberryhshortcake.com - activities
toothpicks

1)create the puppets but glue them on to toothpicks instead of popsicle sticks
2) Mix chocolate cake and pour in greased spring form pan
3) Mix the the strawberry cake and pour into the middle of the chocolate cake mix.  Carefully spread the strawberry mix over the chocolate - but avoid mixing the two together
4) Bake until cake is ready, remove pan and put in fridge for 6-8 hours.
5) Melt the frosting so it is liquidy, add flavour packet and mix.  Pour 1/2 to 3/4 of container over cake, smoothing it out but ensuring the entire cake is coated.  Put in fridge so icing can harden
6) When the light pink icing has hardened, re-melt the can of frosting and add red food colouring to create a deep pink or red icing.  Using a silicone brush, paint on a strawberry shape.  Return to fridge for 1/2 hour or so.
7) Using green icing, creat strawberry top, using white icing, give the strawberry some 'seeds'. Also write "Happy Birthday" under the strawberry
Cool Add puppets and candles to top and have a great party

Class/challenge : April head mistress challenge
house : hufflepuff
project name : decorated gourd
Brief discription : I have had this gourd sitting around for at least 3 or 4 years to afraid to do anything with it for fear of ruining it.  I finally decided if it's not decorated by end of semester it's time to pass it on.  Well Ifinally sat down with some sharpies and let my mnd wander.  Thw upper bit reminded me of rain drops so i put tiny little rain drops all over it splasshing to a puddle that cascades over a variety of flowers.  It now reminds me of my favorite time of spring sjowers - the flowers in bloom amid the fresh green grass and thw fresh smell in the air.

Class: transfiguration
House: hufflepuff
Spew : TOPS
brief discription: I created these 5 posters for our fall rally this year.  Turns out the hardest way to write is deliberately messy/child like.  But i like how they all turned out and they're much more fun and cost efficient than store bought posters.

Love the doll clothes, so cute.

Class/challenge : bertie botts-red apple
house: hufflepuff
project name: Belle flower pot.
I had this pot kicking around and suddenly when i looked at it the other day, the shape reminded me of Belle, so I painted it with about 6 layers of yellow paint,added pearls over the dots, darkened the design with gold, & added a quote that i liked.
