1  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Rubiks Cube [img heavy] on: July 11, 2007 06:17:53 AM
Thanks guys, I'm glad you like it.  Grin

That is really awesome!  I like how they cut off cubes to eat, I would have done it the same way.

I know, it made me so happy! I was hoping they'd do it that way, but didn't get a chance to tell them that. That they ate it in cubes without me asking them to just makes it a million times better,
2  COOKING / Dessert / Rubiks Cube [img heavy] on: July 10, 2007 04:23:27 PM
Well, I was spending some time at a friend's house recently and found myself with perhaps too much chocolate in my system and no activities planned one day. So, obviously, I decided I had to make a cube cake. Various decorating ideas were proposed - mazes on the sides, dice spots, a Borg cube - but I settled on a good old Rubiks. We be nerds.

As far as materials... I used one tub of chocolate icing, three of vanilla, some food coloring, and four boxes of white cake mix. I made four 9x9 cakes, layered them on top of each other, then measured and cut it down so that it was a cube. Well, the sides slanted a bit, but it was pretty close. I think it only would have taken two or three boxes of mix if I had a pan that was closer to the width it ended up being. So yes, there was much spare cake and almost as much spare icing, and both were consumed by my friends. In an effort to be helpful, they would have me believe.  Grin

Anyway, pictures.



I marked off where I was going to cut with red icing and a chopstick. The cake was wonderfully wiggly before I iced it, and I decided my next project is an edible Gelatinous Cube, complete with bones and armor and such inside. I'm not sure how I'll do that yet. (God I'm such a nerd. Rubiks cube, Borg, Mazes, D&D in one post. Ye gods.)

Me painting it, again, mostly with chopsticks. Took an age, hurt my knees.



And the finished product, from two angles so you can tell I did it all the way around:




It wasn't eaten until after I left, but they apparently cut out the pieces as cubes, as I'd hoped they would.



Hope you like it.  Grin

yay! I'm so glad you like everything! I was considering writing "Eat Your Veggies" or just "Harvest Moon" on the back of the Jack one, but thought that just the picture was enough. Oh yay! hee. I'm so happy that you like it. ^_^

unfortunately, I didn't take pictures, because sometimes I am a bit of a dork. ^_^;;

Muahahaha, a frosh. *evil grin* I'm a senior this year. My class has resolved to reinstate freshman friday. They've already taken away our senior trip, not much else they can do beyond some detentions, lol.

Aaaanyway, thought I'd post a quick WIP pic of my Mariah.


I'm working on the first sleeve still - I've just started the second chart repeat. Have about a foot. It's looking good, but happening slowly. Maybe it'll be ready for me to wear on my first day of college, lol.

I got my package from Kairichan! It's sooo cool! We agreed to both do three shirts and some other cool stuff. So, let's start with the shirts:


Check out those awesome shirts! I think the B4K4 one is my favorite. I wore it today, it looks great over a long-sleeved white tee. (They're all size large and fit just how I like them - well, but a little loose so they don't show off my chubby tummy.) There's also a cool paladin shirt (yay pallies) and a great Kingdom Hearts shirt, which I think merits a closeup.


Clever, yes?  Cheesy But that's not all! Here we have an uber-cute Trigun hat (the name of the character is slipping my mind right now), a cool tote that says Otaku on it, and the coolest plushie ever! It's a paopu fruit! YAY! Now I have my very own ultra-soft, incredibly kawaii and huggable paopu!


Aaaand, last but not least, here's a shot of the rainbowy goodness on the inside of the tote. (Notice the pocket.)


Thank you SO MUCH, kairichan! I love everything! You should be getting your package soon too, I hope you love everything as much as I love this.
