1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 58 ENTRIES / wintry cannibal frosty on: January 03, 2011 11:57:44 AM
heres a gingerbreadhouse I made. I believe in covering most of it- because the more sugar the better.

on a cookie sheet because its soo heavy.
The frosty i had made out of marshmallows-
and he's holding a tooth pick in his gloved hands- so i guess thats not edible. But hey im cool with it. the fire was made from  ripping apart the candle wax off of a flickering tealight candle- until only the guts of it remained(circuit board,bulb,wires) covered it in fruit roll up- torn to look flamey. He's roasting a mini marshmallow- like the ones that come in instant hot cocoa mix. Kind of canniballistic. It made everyone chuckle. The trees are made from ice cream cones turned upside down and rolled in sugar.

In progress- he had no hat and i hadnt finished the trees or fence. This picture you can see the flickering loliipop i got for the north pole.
Got a hat now

I dont expect to be the best or brightest- nor do i expect a big win. I just wanted to share some of the details..

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / ~*completed orchid monogram caketop- with BEADS! pic heavy! on: August 10, 2008 12:00:43 PM
heres a picture of the completed cake- at my wedding.

I wanted an initials monogram cake top- and i saw gorgeous ones online for 100 $ apiece. I figured if i bought them- a 3 letter set would be between 150- 200 $.  heres an expensive version.

I bought the cheaper plastic silver version online. I think they are 5 or 6 inches. I think each one was about 6 bucks apiece- i searched for 3 days online to find the best deal- in a font that i didnt find totally hideous- or one that was so scrolly that the letters couldnt be read.

I put some swarovski crystals in various sizes on the top corners of each letter with only a few schmears of E600 glue. I also only put down enough glue for about 4 beads at a time. I wet a tooth pic and pic them up and place them down that way. I have a wax dop stick- but it was too big- and holds on too well to the beads sometimes.

i also wanted orchids cascading- with some bead sprigs poking out. I used some real Swarovski beads in Topaz, clear , and light colorado. (and some cheap acrylic brown beads also.)  I just hand twisted them in lil groups.  they were bicones and rounds.   here's the beads outside the cake...

 a close up of some beads on the actual cake. ... I think i had about 7 sprigs of them all together. The Orchids and the wire weren't covered or coated. we just stabbed them in the cake- haha No one got sick- so i guess it was alright.

heres a pic of us actually cutting into it- were co cute!

and after the wedding my cake initials live on in my plants....
