4  COOKING / Dessert / "In order to bake a cake, you must create the universe." on: September 13, 2010 08:05:36 PM
...to paraphrase Carl Sagan.
Astronomy was the theme I chose for my baking practical. My cake represents what an amateur astronomer would see in the night sky.



The cake (sky) is dark chocolate and raspberry with a raspberry crme mousseline layer (colours in an aurora). Chocolate Almond Italian Buttercream rosettes on the top (the Rosette nebula), decorated with fresh raspberries and chopped almonds (various celestial objects). Surrounding the cake is a dark and white chocolate band (the Milky Way).

Thanks for looking!

Hello knittahs!

My partner has received today so I can post my recent FO.  I've been dying to post this -- I'm so jazzed how it turned out!  Cool

I found the pattern online; it's from the book Knitted Icons: 25 Celebrity Doll Patterns

Without further ado, here's my version:


Thanks for looking dahlings! MWAH!

9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / My nephew's Wall*E inspired project: C.A.N.D.U. the aerosol can robot :) on: July 25, 2008 04:56:45 PM
If I may brag a little here...I'm really proud of my nephew's project.  I told him about Craftster and he asked me if I could share it with you.

My nephew hung out with me at work yesterday.  I work in my family's business so I can spare an hour here and an hour there for a little goofing around w/him.  He and I had recently seen Wall*E and he wanted to make a robot.  I found an empty aerosol can and, with a little guidance and handling of sharp pointy things from his Auntie Giz, he came up with C.A.N.D.U.

His solar-powered house, complete with panels:


The bot himself:


I was super impressed with his vision and his imagination.  He came up the the name and the whole backstory for his little guy.  He's called C.A.N.D.U. because he can do stuff.  He was even giving me instructions where to pose C.A.N.D.U. as I was taking pictures Smiley
