1  Vest & Skirt (6 pictures) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by cherrydate on: November 19, 2009 10:22:09 PM
Well i had a bit of creativity the other day and made a skirt and a vest.
The skirt was a patten from bruda which i will post here in a second and the vest is just from some scraps of a failed skirt.
I made it for me but it looks terrible on me.
Anyone have any good pattens/tutorials on vests??

I made a dress out of this and had some left over fabric i really like this skirt.

It is buttoned down the from and i was going to add the ribbon to it but decided not to.

Thanks and C&C

2  Amy Butler Weekender Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by cherrydate on: October 23, 2009 04:45:07 PM
Everyone has been saying its a really tough bag to sew, but i found it was alright to sew.
Apart from the fact that its a bit uneven on the other side i really like it.

I must say that i did start this around February, March and stopped half way because i needed a needle that would go through 1000 layers of fabric.
But i finished i think last month and took it away to Melbourne with me. I sure is big i fit about a weeks worth of clothes, plus a big jacket toiletries and a hair straightener so its pretty good. (gets a bit heavy)

All In all a very nice bag and i like the outcome.

Thank so much for all you help with this.
Now last week i decided to try it and i used this recipe

   3-1/2  cups all-purpose flour
   2/3  cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
   2  teaspoons baking powder
   1-1/3  cups butter, softened
   1-1/2  cups sugar
   1/4  cup cooking oil
   2  eggs
   1  tablespoon vanilla

1. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder; set aside.
2. In a large bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the 1-1/2 cups sugar and the oil. Beat until well mixed. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until combined. Add flour mixture; beat until combined. Cover and chill about 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Dip the bottom of a glass in additional sugar and flatten each cookie. Bake in preheated oven for 7 to 9 minutes or just until firm. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; let cool.
That was the choc mint sandwhich cookie recipe but i took out the mint and the middle part they had

Chocolate Fudge Brownies

   5  tablespoons  stick margarine
   1  ounce  unsweetened chocolate
   2/3  cup  Dutch process or unsweetened cocoa
   1 1/2  cups  sugar
   3  large egg whites, lightly beaten
   1  large egg, lightly beaten
   1  cup  all-purpose flour
   1/2  teaspoon  baking powder
   Cooking spray
Preheat oven to 325.
Melt margarine and chocolate in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in cocoa; cook 1 minute. Stir in sugar, and cook 1 minute (mixture will almost form a ball and be difficult to stir). Remove pan from heat; cool slightly. Gradually add warm chocolate mixture to egg whites and egg, stirring with a whisk until well-blended. Combine flour and baking powder; add flour mixture to chocolate mixture, stirring well.
Spoon batter into a 9-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 325 for 30 minutes (do not overbake). Cool on a wire rack.
I used the brownie as the middle part.

Then to stick the brownie to the cookie all i did was make a chocolate ganache

The overall cookie sandwich turned out all right and i made i think the best batch of cookies i have ever made.
Apart from the cookie being a bit to crumbly.

Anyway i think i have made a pretty good copy of the cookie but i am going to try a couple more ideas that have been suggested.
Also that's to everyone that helped out & i am still open to anymore ideas people have.

4  What is this?? in Dessert by cherrydate on: September 25, 2009 05:37:25 PM
I was helping out at a play the other night, as it was the final night one of the teachers gave me this.

Now she won't give me a recipe and won't see her for four weeks so, can someone give me maybe a name of this and a recipe?
I would love to make some more as it was fantastic.

5  Black & White Cake?? in Dessert by cherrydate on: March 27, 2009 12:17:47 AM
Hi craftsters!
(sorry if this is in the wrong place)

I am having a  party in 1 week and the theme is Black and White now i would love to make a really pretty black and white cake for the party but i am not really sure how to go about this.
I know that some people on here know their cake stuff so i decided to ask
what would be a good recipe that tastes great? (not a big fan of cookies and cream)
I would like to make a fondant to put around the cake which will be white with black spots but the recipe i have been looking at calls for Crisco shortening now i live in Australia and have never even heard of it any ideas to use instead of it?

Thanks ahead for any ideas Cheesy


general outside idea.

i like the black colour maybe a marble effect?
