1  COOKING / Dessert / But wait... what's inside its plain white exterior???? PIC LINKS INSIDE on: January 27, 2009 05:33:16 PM
Hi all! I'm a crafster Newbie but have been a lurker for a long time. I've gotten so much inspiration from all of you I figured it's about time I started posting some stuff.

I got inspired by the rainbow cupcakes / cakes that everyone's been making and showing off. I don't know where the exact tutorial is located on crafster but I got inspired by all of you and especially used this:

Also used riverwatson's fondant tute here:

I've been doing kids birthdays for awhile. I do princess parties where I go dressed up as a princess and have dress up for them. I'm also a talented facepainter, but this is my first elaborate cake endeavor. I ALREADY GOT ASKED TO MAKE LIKE 3 MORE DIFFERENT CAKES FOR FRIENDS' KIDS BIRTHDAYS!!! I guess I'm gonna have to add that to the services I offer.... wow I'm weird.  Cheesy
 
The party theme was "Dreamland." Everyone wore pajamas and we had dreamland / huge candy decorations. I made a heart shaped cake because that's what the birthday girl wanted but there was no way that would be enough cake for 30 guests plus parents! Sadly I don't have any pics of that one because my forndant work kicked ass on that one!!!

The bigger party cake is supposed to be a giant cloud hence the layers of fondant.... also it was like 2:30 when the cakes went in the oven and the party was at 6:30 and I was in charge of every tiny detail. Isn't necessity the mother of invention? I was putting the cakes in the freezer to cool then crumb coating then putting them back in to harden then rolling out fondant like a mad woman. It all got done though.... and the kids were SHOCKED at the inside of the cake!!!

Since I'm a newbie I don't think I can upload but here's the link to the pics on photobucket:

Thanks for looking... sorry for the long diatribe!  Grin

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / rando newbie scrapper question... on: September 21, 2008 09:51:05 AM
hey all! I'm finally not a crafster creeper anymore! I have just starting scrapbooking and I'm starting with a gift for a friend's birthday. It's a perfect first project because there's a deadline so no endless procrastinating...  Undecided haha

well I bought a "post bound" album at Ross and it has screws on it to add pages... but I unscrew & unscrew & unscrew & I can't tell if I'm making any progresss?!?!?  is this normal? does it take a while to undo the album?

any help would be greatly appreciated... and I love seeing your stuff! Grin
