1  Grimace Cake! in Dessert by Fried Gold on: September 24, 2010 09:05:18 PM
I meant to post this a few weeks ago. A friend recently did me a rockin' solid and I decided she needed a pretty sweet gift. She *loves* Grimace so I made her a special cake. It is (ironically) vegan.

I got the recipe here: http://theppk.com/recipes/dbrecipes/index.php?RecipeID=124

The frosting is the vanilla butter cream from VCTOTW with a lot of purple food coloring.

He was delicious! Cheesy

Would you mind posting a picture of the back of Fred?
Hahaha, sorry, I know it's not a difficult concept, but for some reason I'm having a tough time grasping it.

Sorry, I was AFK for a few days. Smiley I'm actually kinda surprised that I had a picture of his back, but here it is:

OK, so the back piece is a piece of felt that I cut to look like the back of someone's head. I glue around the top and side edges first. As I glue, that felt piece wants to gather, so I cut a slit in the middle. Then, I glue one half down, and the other half on top of it. this way, it lays flat. Longer hairdos are a pain in the butt. Does that help?

Here are the pictures of things I sent to Jessica.Marie (finally!). Cheesy Apparently, we both have conflicting schedules.

Artie, Strongest Man... In the World!

Petunia Tattoos

Rocko and Camp Anawanna Shirts

Mr. Tastee Necklace

I also sent this rad, mini, pink lunchbox I found. It had skulls all over it, and I filled it full of "The Midnight Society's Top Secret S'more Cookies," but I didn't take pictures of that.

I've been making tons of dolls. Here are some of my latest.

A lot of Star Wars guys.

Bears eat beets. Bears, beets, Battlestar Gallactica!

Thanks for looking! Cheesy

XD That looks like cute, Asian cartoon poo. I hope that makes sense.

I started a job just a few weeks ago, and the girl I work with just had a birthday. Anyways, she goes by T-Rock, she's obsessed with Biggie Smalls, and I've always wanted to make a cupcake stencil.

She loved these.

Ever since I bought a copy of VCTOTW, I've been looking for excuses to make cupcakes. Of course, I take lots of pictures. Feel free to go crazy with your cupcake pr0n in this thread!

Chocolate cupcakes with cookies and cream buttercream frosting.

Inspired by this shirt: http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts/ladies/9e23/

The actual cupcakes weren't as cute, as you can see. I made the fondant from scratch. Important note for other future fondant makers: Do NOT even ATTEMPT fondant without a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment!

Chocolate cupcakes with peanutbuttercream frosting and homemade ganache. They make housewives go all "When Harry Met Sally."

You know you want me at your next party. Wink

OK, so it took me awhile to get my image hosting under control, but I got my package from Ms. Jessica.Marie today! Yay!

Everything together, plus a bonus cat. I think he really likes that t-shirt.

A Mr. Tastee necklace/earring set.

Rocko's Modern Life pins! Filbert is going to live on my Stephen Colbag (my tote bag has Stephen Colbert's picture on it) right away!

An AYAofTD? shirt that I'm going to rock at my next horror movie party, and a Camp Anawanna shirt. You know, I have a feeling that we will be seeing a few Camp Anawanna shirts during this swap. Wink

This is my favorite part. A Krumm necklace and earring set. At first I thought he was made from a store-bought toy, but under closer examination, he was made with polymer clay. It's so clever!

Thank you Jessica.Marie. I love everything! Cheesy

I got my package! Yay! My partner was 918, and she is awesome. Everyone should fight to be her partner in the next swap she does. Wink

Here is a slightly squishy TARDIS that is going to live with my Doctor doll in the back window of my car.

My swap partner and I have an inside joke about Daleks in love and holding hands, so she made me a little box with a lovey-dovey Dalek on it. Inside were sticky notes, and I have no idea how she knew that I can never have enough sticky notes around.

Here is the Round Box of Rassilon that was filled with tea and candy.

This is my favourite! Finger puppets! They are so adorable and I love the detail. They made me squee. Cheesy

She also made me a crocheted star that I'm going to use in the kitchen (I don't know if that's its intended use, but I'll think of her and the Doctor every time I make cookies), and she sent me a pencil with Dwight Schrute all over it 'cos we're both all about Dwight.

Thank you so much for my presents, madam! I love everything! Grin

9  TARDIS cigar box purse! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Fried Gold on: October 02, 2007 05:01:16 PM
This may be the geekiest thing I've ever done. However, to a Whovian, a cigar box is really kind of asking for it. The Jelly Babies are to give you an idea of the scale (and because I'm a very silly person Cheesy).

Handle detail:

It was for my Halloween costume, but I'll probably end up using it everyday 'cos I'm really quite happy with how it turned out. It still needs little feet. It also isn't lined yet 'cos I painted it with oil-based paint, and I'm waiting for it to dry in spots.

Also, do you think I should get it dirty and rough it up like the real TARDIS, or leave it as is?

10  Pirate Illusion Baby Blanket in Knitting: Completed Projects by Fried Gold on: September 22, 2007 06:45:32 PM
Hi there! My friend is having a baby, and she is extremely goth. It's difficult to find good gifts for gothic mothers-to-be, so I made her an illusion baby blanket.

Straight on:


All up in that skully's face:

I used the pattern here: http://ysolda.com//wordpress/index.php/skull-illusion-knit-scarf/
Instead of knitting it once in a row, I knit it 3 times. So the blanket is the skull three times in 2 rows. It measures a bit bigger than 2 ft x 2 ft. I hope she likes it, and I really hope the illusion holds up despite all the gross baby vomit and multiple washings (something I did not consider before I started it). Does anyone know if I have anything to worry about? Thanks a bunch!
