Thanks for all of the lovely comments!  Smiley

IS the base just a square/rectangle with the ends joined up?
Not quite, there is enough shaping that it curled into itself a little bit. And then when  I single crocheted around the edges to neaten them up I joined the sides together for a couple of stiches at each end. I'm not sure if that made sense or not, but if you would like a pattern I could probably whip one up.

That is the cutest pigeon I have ever seen. It looks really well done. Good Job!
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Two Peas in a Pod! (5 pictures) on: October 25, 2008 09:36:25 PM

I am in high school, and at my school the week before homecoming is spirit week and each day has a theme. One of the themes was twin day. My friend and I decorated shirts with two peas in a pod on the front.

When we went online to look up a picture of two peas in a pod to base the shirt on, we came across some pictures of crocheted peas in a pod, and my friend said that she wanted me to make her one. I don't think she was serious but she is getting two crocheted peas in a pod for her birthday regardless of whether or not she really wanted them!  Grin

But then when I went back to look at the patterns, there weren't any that were exactly what I was looking for so I just made up my own pattern. It's my first pattern make from scratch and although it was really simple I'm still proud of myself! It is about 5" long, 2" wide, and 1 1/2" tall.

The peas have buttons attached to the back, so that they are removable.

and here's a picture of the empty pod.

and closer up of one of the button holes.

Thanks for looking!


I have never written a pattern before, so it may not be very good. If you have any questions feel free to ask and if you use my pattern please post pictures!

did your mouth turn black from the fondant?
I don't think that it did. But most people don't eat very much of the fondant anyways because it is so sickly sweet.

so this is a little creepy...but i was looking through this post and i was like this is a really really cool cake... and then i get to the bottom and i'm like "OH MAN IT'S LINDSEY" hahhaha that's so crazyyy! but yes, what an awesome cake!
Wow! That is crazy! I mean what are the odds? Thanks though.

I started out wearing gloves, but they came off pretty fast because it was just to hard to work witht he fondant while wearing them. Luckily the black dye came off much easier than I had expected it too Cheesy.
7  COOKING / Dessert / 3 Tiered Cake for Sweet 16 Party (picture heavy) on: June 16, 2008 02:59:51 PM
This past Wednesday I had my sweet 16th birthday party with one of my best friends. Because we both love to bake we decided that we wanted to make our own cake, and this is what we came up with. This is our second multi-tired, fondant covered cake. The bottom tier is a 2 layer 10-inch classic yellow cake with buttercream icing, the middle tier is a 2 layer 9-inch chocolate cake with chocolate icing, and the top tier is a 2 layer 6-inch strawberry cake with some weird french vanilla icing which sounded really good when you read the recipe but really didn't turn out to great. We made all of the cake batter, icing, and fondant ourselves (never again will I dye my own black fondant). Sorry for the rambling and I hope you like the cake!

^ The completed cake

^ The cake without the two cupcakes and the top tier

^ Detail between the first and second tiers (sorry for fuzziness)

^ All SIXTEEN sticks of butter that were used in making the cake, icing, and fondant (talk about unhealthy!)

Thank You for all of the lovely responces. Everyone said that the cake tasted lovely although we did put to much icing on underneath the fondant. And thank you for wishing us happy birthday although our birthday's arn't until June. We are just a little anxious for it so we went ahead and made the practice cake  Tongue.
9  COOKING / Dessert / A Fondant Covered 2 Tier Cake on: January 12, 2008 08:29:30 AM
So my friends birthday and my birthday are only a couple of days apart and so for our 16th birthday we are going to have a HUGE birthday bash and we both love to bake so we decided that we would make our own cake for our Sweet 16th, but we don't want to just make any old cake we wanted to make an AMAZING cake, so we decided that we needed to practice first. So we got together on the last two days of Winter Break and we made this cake:

^The bottom teir is two 9 inch cakes and the top tier is two 6 inch cakes. We iced them in buttercream icing and then covered them in fondant and all of the decorations are either fondant or royal icing.

^This is the bow that we made out of fondant. You can see how it cracked a little, but we were still really happy with it.

^These are the fondant roses that my friend made. I think that they are gorgeous.

We made the batter and all of the icings and fondants for the cake from scratch. It took us a total of 10 hours to make including a hour or two of clean up. This was the first cake that either of us had ever decorated, and although it has quite a few mistakes we were both very proud of it.

I love it! Me and my friend are having a joint 16th birthday party and we are planning on making our own cake and we want it to be tiered and to use fondant and neither of us has ever worked with fondant before. I can only hope that ours turns out as good as your cake.
