This is wonderful.  A friend of mine (that doesn't spin, but knits)  came across a great deal.  A TRUCK LOAD of dorset wool.  FREE!!!!  But the thing is we need to clean it.  And this is probably what we will do.  Thank you so much!!!!  We were so lost, but we aren't anymore!

So I was very excited to try marshmallow fondant that I found here, on crafster.  it was a post by Riverwatson
 https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=238211.0

With  halloween just around the corner, it was the best time to try it, since it gave me an excuse to do it and not have people ask 10000000000 questions as to why I was making fancy cakes with no reason.

Anyway.  on with the show!
The ghost cake is two sided.  All I did for him was to bake the cake in a small pyrex bowl and ploped him onto a tuperware container lid.  Then I put that on a beer butt chicken can holder (which has never been used for that purpose, but sooo many others......)  and tossed the fondant over top.  the faces were painted on with Wiltons Black food coloring gel.



This is the pumpkin family.  I bought single serving meat pie tin plates and made the bigger ones that size. Used 2 cakes for each pumpkin.  The smaller ones are 2 cupcakes cut in half (I used the bottom half) and stuck together.  I wraped those in fondant, cut some lines on them so they weren't just orange balls, and made the faces by cutting the shapes out.  I started with all triangles, but then found it fun to  pull the edges around, so you get those odd shaped eyes and mouths.  I used modeling chocolate for the stems, but they look wonky.  I think I need a new recipe for it.  So if anyone has one let me know!


 tips are welcome!! (goodness knows there are things I could have done differently, if only I knew better Wink )

What an important message and beautiful design!

*auntiem who now wears long sleeve turtlenecks because she wants to not because she has to.
thank you so much! maybe you should do something with that line in it Smiley

hmmm...how 'bout:

Never let the hand you hold
Hold you down
And if they go around your neck
Knee him in the b@lls
And call 911


Oh, and thanks for the yays - nearly 20 yrs out and counting.

Good point though.  Thats one thing that we all need to be taught as young woman.  we are NOT helpless!!!!!

Everytime I read that message I get tingles, and tear up a bit.  I've been there, when I was much younger, and I'm glad I'm out. I've found a man who appreciates me and understands my need for growth and adventure!   i'm glad EVERYONE out is out and free to be the strong woman she is!  That is absolutly gorgeous work too! 
i would also like to ask to pass this on to some of the women in my life.  None are in what would be considered abusive, but its still a great message for those of us who are strong, but have weak moments.

wonderful work and all the best!
