1  COOKING / Dessert / chocolate peppermint cupcakes on: March 01, 2008 02:29:10 PM
From the book cupcakes! by Elinor Klivans (I love that book).

These cupcakes were a big hit both times I have made them - they fall apart a little easily though.  I used candy canes for these, last time I used crushed peppermint candies.  I like the way the candy canes look better - and it's easier than trying to crush peppermint candies  Tongue

thanks for the comments!  my mom also said it was too pretty to cut into...but I think it's too yummy not to cut into it  Tongue

I spooned on the colored filling to make the flower, but next time I'm going to try using a piping bag - I think it might make it easier and keep the lines cleaner.

It really wasn't that hard to do, and it didn't take very long!

I made this cheesecake for my mom to take to work  Grin  It was inspired by the rainbow cheesecake technique.

I thought about the food processor, but we don't have one.  I might have to invest in one...

I'm not sure if I can post the recipe since I didn't make it up, it's from a book called cupcakes! by Elinor Klivans, it's a great book, I definitely recommend it!

These are the orange-glazed cranberry spice tea cakes from the book cupcakes! by Elinor Klivans.  They are really good...the only annoying part is chopping up all the cranberries.

I'm posting these a little late...but these are the cupcakes I made for Thanksgiving!

the spiderwebby looking ones are Spiderweb Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes, and the others are Cinnamon Sugar Puff Cupcakes.  Both recipes are from the book cupcakes! by Elinor Klivans.

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / button phone charm :D on: September 17, 2007 04:35:39 PM
I just lost my monkey phone charm today Sad  and I'm already missing it.  I couldn't bear to let my phone go around naked any longer, so I made one from some buttons I used for a bracelet a long time ago!  It was super easy to make, the entire thing probably took less than 2 minutes.

happy phone!


action shot...yay!
