1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Self portrait, with daughter on: March 16, 2016 10:05:37 AM
Today is a happy day.

I've been working on this embroidery on and off for almost 3 years. My daughter was 6 months when this photo was taken.. shes now 3!
It's my largest and most intensive one. Having two little ones doesn't allow me to stitch nearly as often as I'd like!

The hoop is 12 inches, the majority of the stitches are only 1 or 2 mm..  it's been a labour of love! It was made using 3 different shades of pewter, and black.

And just for funsies, because I take so many photos as part of my process to see how the shading looks, I put them together in a little time lapse video.I could have edited the photos to make it smoother, but I like the realism of the chaos around me haha

2  COOKING / Dessert / My little pony cake on: March 13, 2016 09:47:55 AM
I made this cake for my niece's my little pony party!  Marsh mallow fondant, buttercream icing, and some  gel icing for the water.. those white balls are supposed to be clouds haha

I originally wanted to do a more intensive cake, with rainbows and such.. but didn't have time

Here's the inside of the cake, I tried to make it twilight sparkle's colours, because she's her favourite pony (pegasus)

Haha thank you for the compliments! I stitched the Bob Ross for my sister, for mothers day, because he's awesome, and we love him!!

I wasn't even gonna post the family portrait, cause it's been done a million times before! So I added it with mah Bob Ross Smiley

Since having children, I've barely touched the needle! Here are two little cross stitches I've done this year. I have an intensive embroidery that I've put on the back burner for far too long. I'm trying to get back into it..  Wish me luck!

First, the great and wonderful Bob Ross!***

*** pattern from:    https://www.etsy.com/listing/218188948/bob-ross-cross-stitch-pdf-pattern

Then I did this little cross stitch family portrait. I made it by compiling different patterns I found online. My husband is sooo dead on!  "De" means "the" in Dutch.. I married a Dutchmen!    Ignore the fact you can see strings through the fabric.. I took it before I moved them!

Thank you!
And technically the only part that's cake is the light blue portion on top of the tower!

The tower/base is rice crispy, and it's all covered in ganache and marshmallow fondant
7  COOKING / Dessert / Paw patrol lookout tower cake! on: November 15, 2015 07:09:39 PM
My 3 year old had a paw patrol birthday party yesterday, and I actually managed to pull off the cake in time!!!
I procrastinate and I've only made a few cakes, so I'm no pro... And I thought I was being way too ambitious... But I did it! Yay!

It's 18 inches high, made out of rice crispies, marshmallow fondant and cherry chip cake batter
8  COOKING / Dessert / Masha and the bear cake on: November 22, 2014 10:20:39 AM
I made this cake for my daughter's second birthday... It was my first time making chocolate ganache, and third time making marshmallow fondant!
Unfortunately, I didn't get any really nice photos, the sun had already started to set!

10  COOKING / Dessert / 1 up mushroom cake! marshmallow fondant! on: June 02, 2014 05:59:16 PM
A few days ago was my husband's 30th birthday, and I decided (last minute) to attempt to make him a special cake.

While he and our buddies were enjoying themselves at an aerial park (I'm 28 weeks prego, no ziplinning for me) I whipped up this baby!

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, it was my second time making/working with fondant!!

poor little mushroom being murdered, he only lived a few hours, but brought so much joy to those around him!

and now being gutted... I was surprised how well it held together, I thought it would basically explode!

it took a few hours to get together, but I'm so happy I did it; I had a lot of fun, and it turned out better than expected (yay!!)
