1  COOKING / Dessert / Boxed Cake Help! on: July 25, 2013 09:54:27 PM
Hello everyone.

I am trying to make a birthday cake for someone and the recipe called for a white cake mix.  I accidentally picked up a white angelfood cake mix.  I don't have an angelfood cake pan, and the cake was supposed to be a layer cake with a buttercream frosting. 

Would I be able to use the angelfood cake mix as it is?  Is there anything I should add to the mix that would make it sturdier or closer to the regular ol' cake that I am going for?

Any tips or advice you can give would be greatly appreciated as I won't be able to go out and get another mix!

3  COOKING / Dessert / Madeleine Help on: January 06, 2012 07:19:59 PM
Hey guys, I tired making Madeleines for the first time tonight.  The recipe that i followed had pretty high reviews, and the plain madeleines came out fine.  The second batch that I did, I tried the chocolate variation.  They tasted fine when they came out, but the batter was A LOT thicker than the plain one had been, thick enough that it didn't spread into the pans.  I baked them anyway and they tasted fine...they just didn't look as polished as the others, and they puffed up more. 

The recipe is here:

If someone could look at this, and help me figure out what went wrong, I would really appreciate it.  My theory is that it came from "Substitute 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder for 2 tablespoons of the flour"...like, too much dry, not enough wet?

Anyway, thanks for the help!

6  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Kairi (KH2) costume on: June 17, 2011 01:48:43 PM
So i want to make Kairi's pink dress outfit from Kingdom Hearts 2...but i've come across a small problem.  The dress is so simple, but i can't find a really good pattern for it.

this is an example of her dress (i'd rather not buy it though)


i had been planning on making a pink dress in a light fabric that i would wear over a white cami or something, and i would make a black hood like in the picture.

i found a pattern on burda for a halter dress that kinda has the right neckline (except the V isn't deep enough), but doesn't go up to my size (their pattern goes to 44, and by their scale, i am a 48)


So my question is this:  should i try to resize the burda pattern or does someone have another pattern suggestion?  If i should use the Burda, it is important to note that this would be my first time resizing a pattern, and i don't know how to do that.  

Thank you for your help!

i really love this and i am thinking of making one for myself, so i had a question.  do the edges of your scraps fray a lot or did you treat them in some way?
