351  A cake I made for a Cancer fundraiser in Dessert by Belladune on: August 09, 2009 10:04:10 AM
So.  When I found out there was a desert auction to be held at the Concert For Cancer here in town, I knew I wanted to make something.  I've been volunteering at a camp for kids with cancer for 7 years,  This is a cause close to my heart.  3 weeks ago I found out a boy in town my sons age was diagnosed with cancer.  This made the desire all the more strong.  4 years olds should not get cancer.... mind you no one should...  But the funds raised are going to the family.  Anyway.  I made my delicious Chocolate covered strawberry cake.  It fetched a whopping 450$!!!!!!   Shocked   It wasn't the most expensive one, but it was by no means the least expensive!!  In total our little town of 300 odd people managed to raise over 14,000$!!!!!!!!  And I was glad to be a part of it!


Well, now that you've read all that, I guess you want to see pictures of the cake that made 450$      Wink

The more or less straight on shot Smiley


This is what the inside looks like.  Under that pile of strawberries is a generous layer of choclate ganache!


Close up of my very first attempt at a bow Smiley  turned out pretty darn good Smiley!


and one more for fun!


Thanks for having a look!

Well, here she is!  the original Belladune, a gnomish Warlock from World of Warcraft, in all her poppet gloriousness!

She was hanging out in the kitchen when the kitten happened upon her.

he got to close, so she cast fear on his poor little behind.......  Cheesy

Then she discovered Sugar (the cat) in the living room.  i'm not really sure what that look means... mind you Sugar was sleeping....


And here is the rest of my goodies!
dreamcatcher keychain

Beatles fabric Smiley  I love the Beatles...

and the fluff saved from Belladunes hair, when it was combed out.  I'm definitly spinning this into some yarn!



Well, thats it!  I love it all!!!  thank you so much LOVESCLUTTER!!!

What a wonderful start to the day!!  I can't really picka fav.  those are all wonderful and I one day hope to beable to 'free my mind' and spin like that, Zucchero_Filato.  What wonderful yarns!

SpecialKRJ, we all have to spin something, and I admire your braveness for spinning pill bottle cotton.  it's a cute little ball of yarn!


now onto me Wink I finally have had the energy to do anything fiber wise Smiley!!  yay second trimester!
No yarns just loads of dyed and one blended roving Smiley Shall be spinning this week!  or maybe more dyeing.. since I have pounds of white wool floating about...

Le piece de resistance!  My first in a series of World of Warcraft inspired yarns.  Of course I have to blend and or dye in order to get what I want, so here it is.  Shadow priest. haven't weighed it yet, but my guess is about 2 oz?


One huge stack of dyed roving, so much for solid colors lol.  I like em anyway Smiley  all but the blue are 1oz.  I have 5 oz of the blue, but only pictured 2.5oz


thumbnails of the individuals as not to bog down your computer:)






happy fiber friday, and happy spinning to you all!

356  Chocolate coverd strawberry cake in Dessert by Belladune on: July 16, 2009 07:19:47 AM
So I found a recipe for strawberry cake  (here:  http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-4783-scratch-moist-strawberry-cake.html )  and was determined to actually use it.  I can't make a cake for fun, but I can make a cake for a reason. So when one of my recruits (I sell usborne books, its like tupperware, only kids books;) ) made it to the executive council and dragged me along with her I felt she deseerved a cake.

So I call it chocolate covered strawberry cake.  It is chocolate marshmellow fondant, covering the strawberry cake.  To make the MMF chocolate I just added cocoa powder.  in a full recipe of fondant I'd say it would be about 1cup of cocoa. (I just wung it, since I'd made the recipe before and knew the texture I was going for.)

You can probably see the "quilting" effect on the top, I did that with a fork, because I don't have any real cake decorating tools.  but what youcan't really see is that I rolled it out on cheese cloth, to make it look like fabric.


This is a pic of my attempt at making it look like knitting for the band at the bottom.  didn't really work out well.


And a close up of my terrible pipping skills.  color is off in this one.  I really need to learn how to take pictures of my cakes...


enjoy!

357  spikey cat collar- crochet! mildly pic chubby. in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by Belladune on: July 12, 2009 08:36:46 AM
So I was thinking our new kitty needed a collar, and with no hope of going to a place I could find a killer collar, I decided to make one!
He's so cute and innocent looking, but under that cute bi-eyed exterior, he is a little hell raiser!  So spikey collar it is!





sorry some are sidways... my coffee needs to be stronger.. I thought they were up right...

Alright! the pics of the fantabulous earings I recieved from Persephone Hazard  !!!!!!




 I have a habit of not wearing two of the same socks, not because I can't find the matching ones, but because who said socks had to match?  So I'm most definitly digging the feather and the bead!! 

Thank you so much, Persephone!!!  I can't wait until you recieve from me......  and I can't believe I recieved before you did!
