11  Diego Birthday Rainbow Cupcakes! in Dessert by opheliapoe on: June 06, 2008 10:22:05 PM
i posted my practice run at rainbow cupcakes a while back. so, here is the real deal... my Go Diego, Go rainbow cupcakes for my son's fifth birthday.

i used the premade Diego face icing decorations by Wilton. and i used Diego fruit snacks and animal crackers. for the "grass", i used coconut flakes that i colored green and some canned frosting that i colored green.

the colors of the cake (from the bottom up) are yellow, blue, orange, and green. its a vanilla cake. so, the only other flavors than vanilla are the fruit flavors of the fruit snacks and the coconut on top.

and here is the birthday boy. we let him pick the place he wanted to eat and he said the mexican place. he only wanted to eat there because he knew they would sing and he would get to wear the hat. he didn't even eat mexican food. he had his usual diet of chicken nuggets. lol

that's my last attempt at rainbow cupcakes for a while. they are pretty and fun to look at, and darn tasty... but so time consuming. we are having a family party tomorrow, so hopefully everyone will enjoy them.

thanks for looking!

12  hopping on the rainbow wagon (pic heavy, like me from eating cupcakes) in Dessert by opheliapoe on: May 22, 2008 12:13:22 PM
so, my son's birthday is coming up. and rather than spend a ton of money on store-made cake, i decided to take a stab at rainbow cupcakes. but, i didn't want to wait til then to do it because i didn't know if i had enough mojo in the baking skills to pull it off.

these are my dry run. they turned out pretty well. the pics make the colors look a little odd, but in person they are neon. i just used the colors straight from the neon food colors box. i didn't feel like going all out and mixing every color in the rainbow. i put canned white frosting on there (because i'm lazy today, and this is just an experiment.) its supposed to look like white clouds, and there's sparkle sugar on top to make it even more happy. ironically, its raining today. and i made way too many of these... soooo... the neighbors will all be getting a rainy day treat. lol

the colors are neon purple, green, hot pink, and blue.

kinda looks like clouds, huh? lol

the coolest part, i think, was the awesome tye-dyed looking cupcake paper. normally i'm sad when the cupcake was gone, but at least with these the paper is happy-looking too. lol

they tasted really good. i don't know why, but i for some reason thought they wouldn't taste right with the color in them. this is not how i will do it for my son's b-day. this is a little too girly. he loves go diego, go. so, am going to color the cupcakes yellow, blue, and orange. and the icing will be one of those colors with diego icing decorations and matching sprinkles.

so, thanks for looking, and have a great afternoon/evening! Smiley

13  woodburned bird house in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by opheliapoe on: May 21, 2008 02:21:53 PM
i'm posting this in the interior home decorations because i don't plan on putting it outside. i'm really pleased with how it turned out. i woodburned all the pictures, and the borders, and roof design. then i painted all the colored parts with cheap kid's watercolor paints. the roof ant borders got "stained" with brown water color paint over the woodburned designs. i was gonna give it away, but i think i will keep it. lol

the front

the side, both are the same design.

and the back.

sorry for the blurry shots. my 5 year old got my camera and got something on the lens. i've been to lazy to clean it as well as i should. the pictures really don't do the designs or the colors justice, but that's a rough idea of what it looks like. thanks for looking! Smiley

14  Re: summer dresses for my monkey (daughter, not pet) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by opheliapoe on: May 16, 2008 02:13:09 PM
i made a similar dress for my 4 month old out of that kind of material. since she was so small, i was able to cut off the bottom and make a headband and diaper cover out of the excess fabric. it was fun and easy to make. i like the ones you made. that green is especially pretty and looks lovely on your daughter! great job on it! where did you get that particular print from? i just found mine at wal-mart. that's the closest thing to a fabric store i have around here.

15  first woodburning project. in Completed Projects by opheliapoe on: May 13, 2008 12:29:09 PM
i got one of those woodburning/soldering iron things for mother's day, so i decided to try it out yesterday by making my kids name plates. i think they turned out alright, they could be better. but, hey! it was my first time. i i outlined everything with the woodburning tool and filled in everything but the letters with paint. it was fun. i can't wait to try to solder something together.

thanks for looking Smiley
