Do you do anything with all the leftover yolks?

This time I just dumped them, but I've saved them for ice cream or creme brulee before. 
12  COOKING / Dessert / Angel Food Cake on: January 15, 2017 09:02:29 PM
We were tending to some chickens while their owner was away and we got so many eggs!  I had to figure out what to do with them all and one of our favorite ways to do an egg dump is with Angel Food cake!  This was so good that my family ended up eating it in one sitting.  Yikes!  Shocked




Angel Food Cake
From 1972 Betty Crocker Cookbook.


1 cup cake flour
12 egg whites (1-1/2 cups)
3/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons sugar
1-1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract


Set Oven at 375
Combine cake flour and 3/4 cup sugar.
In another large mixer bowl beat egg whites, cream of tartar and salt until foamy. Add second amount of sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high speed until meringue holds stiff peaks. Remove mixer bowl.
Gently fold in flavorings. Sprinkle flour/sugar mixture, 1/4 cup at a time, over meringue, folding in gently until flour mixture disappears. Push batter into ungreased tube pan. Cut through gently with spatula to remove air pockets.
Bake 30-35 minutes until top is browned and springs back when touched with finger. Invert pan over funnel until completely cool.

Wanted our Christmas cards to be Harry Potter this year, so drew up a cute Dobby!


And after I loved Dobby so much, I decided all our Birthday cards this year needed to be Harry Potter too!  So I drew a Hagrid and his cake.


These are both hand drawn and then colored in photoshop.  Better start thinking of Valentine's!
Thanks for looking

Brief Description: We always end up missing birthday celebrations for DH's family because we live so far away.  We end up giving gifts a month or more late and it's awkward, so we've decided to send cards this year instead.  And after my precious Dobby Christmas card, I wanted to mimic it.  So I drew up a Hagrid for a card, and photoshop painted him.  I love him!  Hopefully he will light up the hearts of the birthday people this year.

Project Name: Candy Inside Balloon Gifts
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: These balloons are tied together in such a way that they create funny faces, but when you look in their bellies you also see candy stuffed inside.  There is a special way you have to sneak the candy in before the balloon is tied.

Project Page Link: -
Brief Description:  Practice makes perfect!  It's one of those funny sayings the nonmag's say.  So while bored in a meeting I began to doodle some HP characters.  They morphed into fatter chibi looking guys as I penciled.  Then went back with a pen and thickened up some lines to give it more character.  Cute-ies.  Not sure what the plan is with them since they are on lined paper though.  Maybe just a simple page bookmark.

Brief Description: There are 300 mini cupcakes here.  This took a lot of discipline to make that many and get them looking and tasting to my liking! Peppermint, Vanilla Bean, Egg Nog, and Hot Chocolate flavors all placed into cupcake trays and labeled with a fun Christmas greeting from our family.  Took them around to all the neighbors.  Last year made 6 regular sized cupcakes per family and I had "complaints" (lol) that people didn't get to taste all the flavors after kids ran off with their hands full.  This year I made 3 flavors each so hopefully my friends could taste test a couple at least!

and cute chocolate marshmallows made for the gluten free friend.  Sad little guys don't get their own post, because they just took a few quick minutes.

Received from wavelight.  A fun I Spy ornament.  And clever use of perler beads, makes these much lighter than the common polybeads.  She's made little shrinky dinks in all my favorite HP things hidden inside.

House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: M&M Illusion cupcakes
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: Something that I shine at and lights me up everytime anyone asks me to do, is making cupcakes.  Made cupcakes for my nephews 3rd birthday and after asking what kind he wanted he yelled "m&m!" so he got m&m based cupcakes.  These are made with the illusion of the candies pouring from the bag.

See?  I really excel at cupcakes.  There are 5 different kinds! lol

Project Name: Graham Cracker Houses
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: Made ten graham cracker house bases for a girl scout group that I am in charge of.  Those little angels are so fun to have come over to my house to learn skills and sometimes just to have fun.  Like make gingerbread houses! 
I made the houses cutting up graham crackers and then 'glued' them to cardboard cake circles with melted sugar 'caramel'.  You just put plain old white sugar into a heavy bottom pan and heat on medium until it looks golden.  Dip cracker edges in it and put together.  Holds much faster than royal frosting when you are trying to make a bunch at once.

Some finished houses of theirs and my 3 year old nephew's.

SPEW: -
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Christmas Layer Finger Jello
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=442375.0
Brief Description: I love making this finger jello because kids love it and it looks so festive.  It is simple as in open a box and stir, but takes hours to create so you have to stay near your fridge.  The only picky thing about it, is you have to keep everything at the right temperature.  You have to heat the liquids to boiling to get the gelatin to melt, but then let it cool enough so you wont melt the layer under it after it has been kept cold.
Project Picture:
Took these to a neighborhood party and a whole two tier tray was empty by the time I made it through the dinner line!  lol.  Kids adore them.  I served them in muffin cups so they were easy to grab and go.  These four sad ones were the "broken" ones I saved for my girl's lunches.  Glad I did because I forgot to take a pic of the first stack!

Brief Description: I used purchased lego Harry Potter heads as a fun purchased supply to use to make earrings.  These went to my partner in the HP Holiday swap.  She asked for some small HP gifts to give to friends.

Project Name: Dobby Card
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description:  I wanted to do a Potter themed Christmas card this year and got inspiration from an etsy card with dobby saying he got a birthday card. So I drew Dobby in my own personal cartoon style and then painted him in photoshop.  I thought there wasn't enough color so I went back and added a hat and holly.  For our family pic we all got our Hogwarts houses quidditch team shirts and are going to stand in front of our HP Christmas tree.  It'll be fun!

Project Name: Countdown Stockings
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: These Christmas stockings are both functional and decorative.  They are very festive above my kitchen table, but as the month goes by each day my girls will get to take one down and find a mini present or activity to do for that day. 
This wasn't going to be one of my projects because it was storebought stockings with easy handmade shrinky dink tags, but this dumb project cost me a whole morning setting up!  Crazy.

House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Baby Potter Pegs
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: Made my HP Holiday swap partner some Potter Peg friends and she talked about having an American Girl Doll that she was trying to make potter friendly.  I had these miniature peg wooden babies and thought it would be fun to try to make her doll some baby pegs too.  It required precise calculations to paint them scaled from Big Peg to baby peg.

Completed OWL
OWL Subject & Option: Potions 2 (PM proposal)
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Potter Peg Ornaments
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=450969.new;topicseen#new
Brief Description: Here I showed proficiency in the shrinking potion learning how to shrink Harry Potter and his crew by just making them small and not go back in age.  I made them small enough so I can hook them up and let them be cute decorations on my HP tree.
Project Picture:







PROPOSAL OWL
OWL Subject & Option:  Defense Against the Dark Arts - 1
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Temple Painting
Brief Description: The patronus is a useful spell for ridding your area of dementors.  It is a difficult spell to master however, so be prepared for a back up plan.  One plan is to go to a highly spiritual place, like a religious temple.  For this OWL I would like to paint one of those sacred dementor free zones.  It will be a large 24X36 painting that I will hang in my front room, hopefully ridding my home of dementors while I continually practice and master the patronus spell. I hope to have this finished by the end of january.
