1  COOKING / Dessert / Need help with Betty Crocker molten chocolate cake recipe pleeeeeease on: June 07, 2009 08:07:00 PM
All right, I hope this is a fairly simple question to answer.

In the recipe, the ingredient list calls for three large whole eggs and three large egg yolks. Am I right in assuming that it wants me to separate the yolks from three eggs in ADDITION to the other three WHOLE eggs?

An answer would be greatly appreciated.  Cheesy
2  COOKING / Dessert / Super Smash Brothers Brawl: Smash Ball Cake on: April 08, 2009 01:37:23 PM
Hello! I'm usually just a lurker here at craftster, but I decided to post a picture of a cake that I made last year for my boyfriend's birthday. Smiley

I'm not much of a baker, but here it is:

It's a rich chocolate cake with vanilla icing decorated to look like a smash ball! It was very yummy and my boyfriend really liked it. Smiley It was also fun to make!

I made the chocolate cake (kind of) from scratch. It wasn't from a mix, anyway. I found a recipe online and followed it to make the cake. The frosting is just... I dunno, normal frosting? My mom taught me how to make frosting when I was really young so I would stop pestering her to make me some just so that I could eat it.  Tongue
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Sewing ears on a stuffed animal with an invisible stitch? on: March 18, 2009 02:37:08 PM
I know that if there is a seam available, one could sew the ears onto the stuffed animal in the seam. How would I sew them without a seam/any stiching showing if I DON'T have a seam available to sew them into?

I'm more of a visual learner, so if you know of any good visual tutorials on how to sew features onto a stuffed animal, that would be great...

Thanks in advance!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How do you hem a circle skirt? on: March 18, 2009 01:42:28 PM
I don't know how to do it and it's driving me mad. Sad
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How would you sew the ears like that onto a fleece hat? (pics inside) on: March 16, 2009 04:30:51 AM
All right, so I was browsing around on ebay to see if I could figure out how some people made their kitty/dog/bunny/animal fleece hats, but I came to this really nice one with very nicely set/arranged ears.


(auction expires in a little less than a month, so pictures may eventually disappear, but maybe not, I dunno much about ebay)

How would one get the ears to bow out like that in the side view picture? They aren't just flat and straight; they actually resemble an animal's ear shape.

What do you think?
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Sorry, but I have another ami question. on: September 16, 2008 10:30:13 AM
All right, so I plan on making an amigurumi and I know how to make the adjustable ring. I'd prefer not using an actual pattern because if I can figure out how to make them, I want to sell them and most free patterns don't allow one to do that.

When you crochet in a spiral, should it automatically start becoming a 3D ball/shape or is there something you have to do, specifically, to make it start to take form?

Sorry that I ask so many questions!
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Crocheting pointed ears (for amigurumi/stuffies) on: September 15, 2008 05:42:57 PM
I'm thinking of crocheting a collection of Pokemon stuffies, but how would I go about crocheting ears that come to a point like say... Pikachu?
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / How do you crochet into one stitch/chain multiple times? on: September 03, 2008 06:30:00 PM
I really don't understand how to do it and a number of patterns call for it.

What is the actual process you have to go through?
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Having troubles getting started. on: August 31, 2008 11:17:51 AM
I've decided that it would be best if I used synthetic (acrylic) yarn to start learning how to crochet so that I am not wasting away good quality yarn.

Anyhow, I can do a chain stitch, but after that, I've had troubles doing the turning chain and even the single crochet. I keep trying and trying and can't get it right. I started out using instructions from Happy Hooker, but needed better visuals. I tried looking up videos on youtube, but they're even harder to follow because some of the people doing the tutorials do it so fast and expect beginners to catch on immediately.

What are some free resources, preferably with good visuals, that I can use to learn the basics?
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / I need advice for those who know how to sew through INTERFACING. D: on: May 19, 2008 07:27:42 PM
Sooooo, I'm making a messenger bag. It's pretty hardcore.


However, when sewing wrong sides out (aka. ANNOYING INTERFACING SIDE OUT), the plastic-ish interfacing gets stuck and it's very difficult to push through the sewing machine.

What can I do to make it easier to get through?

I was thinking maybe putting like... olive oil or Pam on it to help it slide through, but I don't know.
