Meet Lemon! Isn't he just the cutest lemon snake cake?
He was inspired by a cake I saw on 9gag over a year ago. (It isn't up anymore) My friend has/loves snakes, and this was just the cake for her 21st birthday. The original was a little too realistic (for some of my other snake-phobia friends), so I made him pleasantly plump with big black eyes.
The cake was extra yummy with 1/3cup fresh grated lemon zest (6 lemons) added to the mix. His head was a giant cake ball made from scraps after sculpting his body.
Here he is with the lucky birthday girl.
Thanks for looking! <3
***PS: I am happy to report, he was a big success at the party!!!
It is really fun, creative, original game that keeps me replaying it regularly. Every time I play, I find new lil cutscenes I have missed before. This weekend was my last visit to Camp Whispering Rock. While playing, I just loved how up beat these lil' guys were.
Every level, they just hum, blow bubbles, and dance at checkpoints, even if the world is blowing up around them. That is the type of energy my house NEEDS. He makes a great addition to my gamer home.
Sorry for the tiny reference above. It is the only in-game pic I could find of them online.
Being a gamer, I need gamer decor. My bathroom is Valve game (Team Fortress, Portal, Half Life) designed, and it was missing a little something. It needed a bit more Pyro! Here she is, roasting her mallow.<3
If I ever get around to it, I'll add her flamethrower, bag of marshmallows, and the pyro emblem. =p Who should I make next?
Portal, Team Fortress, Left 4 Dead, Counter Strike, Half Life, Dota 2, Alien Swarm
All the goodness of the great company Valve in one awesome swap!
Sad to say, I can not organize at the moment. Just don't have the programs to. Imight get them, if there is enough buzz/ free time though. Thinking a middle to large point swap with a variety of Valve character and game interests. Any interest?
Another cake from MsKatie and myself, and our BIGGEST yet.
It is a 3 tier funfetti and chocolate cake for our cousin's baby shower (which was a great success). She doesn't want to know if it is a boy or girl, so we stuck to something all kids love....Dr.Seuss! Each layer was to celebrate her favorite books as a kid, Green Eggs and Ham, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, The Cat in the Hat, and Horton hears a Who
below are some progress shots

Well, I as recently in the Portal & Friends Swap. My partner and I both loved ALL of the games made by the game company, Valve. This special Weighted Companion Cube was a really fun way to incorporate all of my partner's favorite games and characters.
Just an ordinary Cube right? ....... Nope!!!! Its Zoey From Left 4 Dead RedSpy Crabfrom Team Fortress 2 Aperture Science one sideBlack Mesa on the other paint, nail polish, sharpies, and a few hours to make. Hope you guys liked it ^_^
My friend's youngest son turned 2. She had been so disappointed with all the cakes made by various bakeries years before. Every birthday party, Jen ordered a fondant cake that ended in shattered expectations. My sister (Sn: mskatie) and I had to change that. All she said was to make it Backyardigans. Jen had no idea what to expect. When we opened the door, she started to cry tears of joy. It was so wonderful to make our friend happy and a dream come true.
Kat made the fondant, butter cream frosting, vanilla cake, and the marbled fence. I sculpted, colored, and painted the fondant figures/clouds.
I wanted to thank a friend, so I made little figures of her dogs. Wish I had placed a coin or something similar for size refs. The dachshund is about the size of a quarter. The collars are spare threads I found while folding towels =P
Wish I snagged a pic of their faces, but they just kept licking the camera
Wasn't really sure where to put this... I see him more as fan art, than a valentine. This lil' guy is from the game Mass Effect and made with tons love and a bit of craft foam. My husband and I are HUGE gamers. I was really struggling on what to get him.... He is very hard to shop for T_T Then, he sent me a Harbinger valentine. (if you played the Mass Effect2, you know the character) This was my response. ^_^ Who better to express my love than an elcor? He'll be so surprised in the morning before work. <3
