1  COOKING / Dessert / Homestar Runner Cake (w/new pix--img heavy!) on: April 03, 2008 08:07:38 PM

I spent 7 hours on this thing. Mainly because EVERYTHING is freehand cut out and stuck together through the wonders of water makes it all stick together. Smiley

It's for my boyfriend's BFF's birthday on Saturday. The bottom two layers are one chocolate, one french vanilla with butter cream in between. The top two layers are one chocolate, one friend vanilla with raspberry preserves in between. Should be tasty. First time with Fondant. It's like playdoh! Smiley

Now with more pictures...

I'm gonna ruin this pretty cake... but first I need to drink some little penguin shiraz...

Next comes Marzipan...

Strong Sad

Homesar - without the writing on his shirt, I know, it's nuts... but those are lowercase letters, ya know? I've been drinkin' little penguin and doin this for 6+ hrs at this point...

Eh! Steve!

The Cheat


I apparently didn't take a picture of PomPom on the cake, but here he is without a face and napping on some tinfoil..

Insert Burnination Here... Beware, Thatched Roof Cottage Dwellers!

Whatcha think?

2  COOKING / Dessert / Fondant... a question about it. on: April 02, 2008 03:50:57 PM
I just made my first gob of Marshmallow Fondant.

I need advice on two things... the first is - how in the heck should I go about coloring this stuff? I've got gel food coloring, primary colors, and aside from knowing what colors to mix to get other colors (except for black - advice on that is appreciated too) I'm at a bit of a loss...

Secondly... my siamese cat is very interested in licking my hands now. I've washed them and there's no reason he should be so obsessed. Do your cats just love the smell of marshmallows as much as mine does? He's also really nutso over marshmallow peeps, so I'm sure it's not the fact that I spent 10 minutes with my hands bathed in crisco...
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Orchids! (my post ate some picture cake and got a bit chubby) on: February 05, 2008 10:40:04 PM
My boyfriend and I got a membership to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. They are currently having an exhibit featuring gargoyles and orchids.

Here's a few shots from a recent visits. Hope you enjoy them!

These kinda look like they have little faces on them... can't help but smile at them!

Soooo... lay it on me... what do you think?
