1  COOKING / Dessert / Birthday Luau Cakes on: July 16, 2008 03:50:50 PM
My kids birthdays are only 10 days apart so we have a joint birthday party.  This year's theme was a luau.  All my 9 year old son would tell me was that he wanted a "cool" cake, my 3 year old daughter's was easy, she wanted her favorite "upside down" cake (which fit perfectly with the theme).   I decided on the volcano cake for my son, and it was super easy.   I made  a chocolate cake in a bundt pan, covered it in chocolate icing, dripped red icing on the top and let it run down the sides, colored shredded coconut for the grass, and used green Twizzlers for the trees (which didn't work real great), got some dry ice from a  local ice cream place and we were ready to go.   The kids loved their cakes!









You can make this cake to actually erupt down the sides but the steam effect was easier.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Reuse for old Phonebooks (My take on the Mag Purse) on: February 26, 2008 03:35:15 PM
Inspired by all the woven magazine purses on here, I decided to try my hand at it---with a twist.







Whatcha think?

Oh, yeah, after being a long time lurker and occasional commenter, this is my first real post!

I want to do something similar to this, but can't figure out how to get the look.   
4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Dishsoap Bottles & Plastic Knives on: March 27, 2007 01:41:03 PM
Does anyone have any ideas for empty dishsoap bottles?  They seem like a good sturdy bottle to use for something.   

I also have alot of plastic knives we don't use, and can't figure anything out to do with them.  Any ideas?Huh? Shocked
