8283  COOKING / Dessert / Mothers day carrot cake on: May 09, 2009 07:12:25 PM
So, with my search for different types of rolled icing (as a request from a friend who didn't like the marshmallow fondant, she wants me to decorate her cakes from now on LOL)   I found this recipe:  http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-7060-6-Cream-Cheese-base-fondant.html
  What better cake to try it on then a carrot cake.  And of course I need an excuse to make a cake.  And with Mothers day being tomorrow it was a great one!

close up of the carrots, do the greens look realistic enough?  or do they at least get the point across?

top view.  Doesn't look to bad here.

On this one you can see this fondant cracks easily.  Thats okay for now.  Just more practice with it I think.

As for flavor and texture, the icing is pretty tasty, though next time I skip out on the almond extract.  I've never had luck with that extract, it always tastes weird to me.   It also has a nicer texture then the MMF (which is chewy)  Kind of melt in your mouth~ish.  Lets hope the MIL likes it too, since the cake is technically for her!

comments and criticism welcome, I'm always looking to improve!
thanks for looking!

what a wonderful project!  I think I'll make this for my son.  He's 4 and knows his letters, now just to work on order and beginning spelling/reading.  I think this will help a lot, as he still has troubles writing some of the letters.  I just hope he's not bored in kindergarten LOL

ooh bummer.  I do my scalloped potatoes on the stovetop.  So no crispy top, but they taste the same, and less cook time!  Basically I just slice em as you would.  Then cook em, When draining, butter and onions and flour and desired spices go in the pot, add milk   cook until thick, add the potatoes, then they are ready to go!
8290  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: Fiber Friday 5.8.09 @#$%*! on: May 08, 2009 08:17:03 AM
omg Oddacity,  wow.  thats a gorgeous color!!

this yarn is now the best yarn I have made to date.  I'm sooooooo proud of it.  I thought about calling it hoarfrost, but then it doesn't have any sparkle other then the beads on the thread.  so I'm just going with Winter Morning.   It is 80%angora and 20% merino Lamb.  Its ridiculously soft.  116yards, 2oz.  I've got another 2oz single on the bobbin that will be turned into this too,  just need to find those beads again... LOL  Anyway, on with the picture!

It can be yarn cowl!

And these are some I did a while back but didn't take pics of until now. (not the best pic but oh well.)  They are lace/fingering weight, BFL,  one is 3 ply, one is 2 ply and then the left over single

I do have another, but it is for a swap, and I have a feeling that scotskipper checks this thread out every week, so I'll wait until she receives.

anyway happy fiber friday.
