Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Wedding Guest Shoes
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.) I was invited to a friends wedding last weekend and made myself a blue dress with cherries on it. I wanted a pair of unusual shoes so decided to recon some shoes I found at a thrift store like ones I have seen on Craftster and Pinterest. Viola - here is my attempt. It incorporates 2 beetles (ahem - I mean buttons) as the bows at the front look unfinished  Undecided I mostly used this website for how to cover the shoes themselves http://www.lovemaegan.com/2011/11/houndstooth-shoes-diy.html

Sorry to be so quiet I've been crafting many items for swaps so i'm waiting to post them until after I send and my partner receives.
 I did a quick little project today for my niece. She is 18 months old, and loves to walk. I made the a little tutu that can be worn over any outfit. I added a bounce charm so if she starts to fall while wearing she will bounce right back up.  This will help both her mother smile and worry less.

Brief Description: my niece is a ham, and this will put her already adorableness at the center of more affection, giving her the power to make more smiles in the world. Sadly she lives far away so I can get a picture of her wearing it.

@whenindoubtsew: adorable, adorable shoes! Kiss

@Eiseldora: Your cat pics alone cheered me up!  And though your pic&link for Flying weren't working for me; I stalked and found your cozy cowl on Ravelry.

Class: Arithmancy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Boston Cream "Pi" Cupcakes
Project Page Link (if available): --

Brief Description:
One of my best friends and I threw one of my other best friends a surprise birthday party last night. For food I decided to make Boston Cream "Pi" cupcakes  Smiley The cupcakes are a yellow butter cake with a vanilla pudding filling and chocolate ganache topping.

I knew I wanted a lot of pudding inside the cupcakes (mmmm pudding  Grin ), so that it would actually taste like a boston cream pie. I looked at some food blogs and they recommended cutting some of the cupcake out, instead of just filling it from the top with a pastry bag, so I decided to try that. I really liked how much pudding fit into the cupcake this way (perfect amount for me), and the pudding held the cupcake top in place so it didn't fall. The only problem was that when you took a bite into the cupcake sometimes you could see a little gap in between the top of the cupcake and the bottom where the cupcake was cut. Maybe if I had used a thicker frosting instead of just a thin ganache this wouldn't have happened? (I also accidentally made the ganache too liquidy by adding too much cream, oops heh Tongue, so that might've been it too)

Anyways, in case you decide to try it, here are some process pics Smiley

Cut a cone into the cupcake


Fill with nummy pudding Smiley


Shave off the bottom of the cone you just cut out and pop the top back on (sticking it to the filling)


jillybeans, it just so happens that chocolate picks are my favorite way to decorate cupcakes and cakes! Great minds think alike Smiley

Three of the finished cupcakes out of 20 total
(and please excuse that ganache drip, but maybe it can count as 0.14 of a cupcake?! 3.14 cupcakes in the pictures?! ahahaha):
