8402  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Jar of Whimsies 5 (Sign-ups 4/20-4/25, Send-outs by 5/25) on: May 10, 2009 07:15:44 PM
we went for ice cream last night, at the everything store here in town, and lo and behold I looked around and found more whimsies.  I think I'm going to have to start editing the contents of my partners jar.....

No NO...Spoil away Wink

I found some more stuff for your jar but yes I am waiting for more stuff to arrive by mail...!
Now to start crafting....
I think that you will like the crafts....I hope so anyways.... Cheesy

LOL  yes, you will be thoroughly spoiled, especially considering I have until my last shipment of whimsies show up to craft (I've got 3 done, but hey I need an excuse and some inspiration to create.) I'll just keep going and going and going until I get that last bunch of whimsies!  I did receive the first bunch of whimsies and I love them!  I almost kept them, but then reminded myself they weren't for me LOL  Should have done the 'one for you, one for me' when ordering! LOL

oh yeah, chocolate scented whimsies? yummmmmmm!  although, to bad I'm allergic to unnatural scents.  But real chocolate it yummy!
8403  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Mothers day carrot cake on: May 10, 2009 06:51:13 PM

I should mention that in the recipe, she states it will cover one cake,  The recipe will likely cover 2 cakes, this was an 8 inch circle,  about 5 inches high.  It got rave reviews at the family lunch today.  The ones who had tasted fondant before liked this cream cheese fondant much better, more creamy melt in your mouth like.   I can't however say that this would go good with just any cake, I'm thinking it would have to be a spice cake, oatmeal cake, something with a little more substance then a regular white or chocolate cake.

OMG those pics of fiber makes me super jealous!!!  I wish I had a fiber fest to go to. Cry

Anyway, Oddacity, I'm sorry I can be of no help, but to say I feel your pain.  When I started the long draw method, and my yarn broke in 10 places, it was so sad, especially after my "inch worm technique" was working so well for getting even nicely spun yarn.  Practice practice practice.  it will get better.  I can long draw like an intermediate now LOL

8408  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!
8409  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Mother's Day / Re: I Love Mom Magnetic Scrabble on: May 09, 2009 08:34:43 AM
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
