1  COOKING / Dessert / Mom made Fondant Cake-and I helped. By yelling. on: June 06, 2010 04:01:46 PM
My mom watches home and garden and cooking shows non stop. Loves the cake making ones, and has decided to try her hand at fondant cakes. Decided to make one for her friend's 60th birthday which we finished the night before she (Mom) drove halfway across the country.

My mother did all the actual baking, kneading, rolling and icing I cut out all the fondant shapes and told her where to put them-she was starting to get "creative" and wanting to "experiement" when I kindly informed her (more than once, with feeling) that the 9th hour was NOT a good time to mess with things, just get it done.

Fondant is marshmallow, cake is chocolate with buttercream icing and a cherry glaze/syrup thing in layers. Marshmallow fondant is delicious! I hate marzipan, so it was kind of a revelation for me that fondant tastes good.

Neither one of us is particularly artistic, and we have no real cake making supplies BTW-I know it pales in comparison to some others on here. My mom is not super internet friendly so I thought I'd share her acheivement!

2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Handmade Warrior on: May 10, 2010 12:55:10 PM
Ok, so while browsing etsy I stumbled across people selling lots of MAC makeup and knockoffs so I reported it, they violate etsy terms. Not handmade, not vintage, not supplies.

So I go back over a week later and the listings are STILL THERE.

WTF

Am I allowed to post the link? If you search MAC under bath and beauty they're in there.  (I had originally been looking at these wooden vanity makeup holders)
