11  Tomato Bread =) edited to add recipe in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Angelicus on: May 21, 2010 08:54:42 AM
One of my first ever times making bread (maybe made it two or three times before) so I am really pleased with how this turned out. It has a lovely, really distinctive orange colour and the tomato flavour is just right - not too strong, not too weak. If you want a recipe, just let me know.

The shape came because I wanted to make a loaf out of rolls where you could pull of the rolls but it had traditional shape - if that makes sense? However it rose quite a lot so I have since decided that its better to slice or you might end up with a rather large chunk of bread.

Edited to add recipe:
Origionally from The Complete Bread Book by Lorna Walker and Joyce Hughes (published in the '70s so I doubt you could get hold of it which is why I'm happy to give out the recipe)
1 packet quick action yeast (or just look at whatever yeast you use - normally tells you on the packet how much to use for the amount of flour)
300ml warm water
150g tomato puree (I used about a half tube of double concentrate puree....I'd say go with your instincts and then add a bit more Smiley
675g strong white flour
good shake of salt (says 15g in recipe but I didn't measure)
1/2 teaspoon of garlic or onion salt/granules
1 teaspoon paprika
15g margarine or lard

Blend the tomato puree with 150 ml of warm water - it should look fairly thick. Add this and the other 150 ml of water to the dry ingredients - I actually had to add more water at this point as it was too dry but just go with what instinct tells. You then just make as with normal bread:
Knead, bash, box, get rid of all those tensions on the bread. It should be nice and elasticy when fully kneeded - about 10/15 mins?
Cover and leave to rise
When at least doubled in size, have a bit more of a knead then shape into loaves, rolls etc. Cover and leave to prove.
Bake at a preheated oven at 220C/425F/GM 7 for 30-35 mins for loaves and 15-20 mins for rolls 
Eat =)

The recipe said that I should get 24 rolls or 2 small loaves out of this. I got this loaf and about 6 rolls from it but I think I was so excited to be making bread that I didn't leave it to rise for as long as I could have.

I'm thinking that I might try and add in some sundried tomato in next time, to add a bit more to the texture? Or maybe olives?

12  One crazy cake... in Dessert by Angelicus on: May 15, 2010 01:00:42 PM

I made this cake for my friends 16th birthday - It ended up being very different from what I had planned (I was going to completly cover it in frosting so the multicolured inside was surprise.) However I prefer it how it is, as I'm very proud of how the multicoloured effect turned out. The picture makes it look a little bit washed out but they're still a fairly acurate representation.

The middle load of frostung is actually in a loveheart shape, which you can't really see very well on either of the pictures. Considering I didn't have any special equipment (a palet knife, plastic bag for piping and hot water were about my  only tools for putting on my frosting) I can just about forgive myself the rather messy icing.

If anyone has any questions don't hesitate to ask Cheesy

I'm glad both my partners have received (sorry they were so late) and enjoyed the chocolate Smiley I've finally managed to get my pictures to upload as my camera was playing up so without further ado...
From MiLady - I have a feeling I might have mixed up who sent what so correct me it I'm wrong Smiley

From Mummynat:

I love them both and can't wait to get putting them all together. Also I love what you're doing with yours MiLady. It looks lovely Smiley

First of everything is lovely...sorry for going sompletely MIA...here are the things Troublet, sorry Penelope sent me  Wink
I arrived back at the Ravenclaw common room, feeling somewhat tired last week when what did I find but a rather overburden owl carrying a huge box of goodies to me from my gryffingdor buddie Penelope. She seems to have got something from everyone - even Mrs Weasely made me something!
First up is a really cool pencil case and book mark courtesy of Hermione, to help me be more organised with my studies:

Then Mrs Weasely sent me a super duper awesome bag which I absolutely adore:

Then what did I pull out but this container:

And whats that inside there. Some charms for me to practice on and a badge to show off my house colours:

Next up is an amazing t-shirt made by penelope herself. I've already worn this out and have got so many compliments:

Some more of the t-shirt, one of the two pairs of earings Luna sent me and one of the hair clips she sent me:

Some sweet goodness:

There was also a fascinator which I adore and wear all the time but just couldn't get a picture of it. I was completely spoiled by this package and love everything in it. Thank you so much Penelope Cheesy

Having just bought a camera, I can now show off the gorgeous things I received from leafy-lane. Luckily being the procrasinator that I am I hadn't put away anything so everything was close at hand.
So, all together now:

Lots of gorgeous papers, many of which are double sided:

Tags - I can think of so many different uses for these:

Lots of different newspaper adverts and images, plain card (v. useful always), tissue paper...

Some really cool phrases which will be really useful both to use and to get the creative juices going as inspiration:

Lots of postcards, vintage images and papery goodness. There were also a load of stamps but I'd added them to my collection before I came to take the individual photos. I think you can see them in the group photo:

Christmas papers and bits and bobs - hopefully I'll be a bit more prepared next year with this lot spuring me on. All of these papers are also double sided.

There were also lots of other bits and bobs - more papers, stickers etc. but I thought I'd give you all a rest...I have gone a little bit pic happy with my new camera Cheesy

16  Pop up card/ornament in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Angelicus on: July 14, 2009 09:01:24 AM
Hi guys,
First time posting one of my projects so I'm very excited. I made this for the OTT swap and the pictures are courtesy of my partner loobie - my camera is broke so I couldn't take pictures before sending out.
This is a top view where you can see how the pop up works

Next is a view of the outside. This took an unbeleivable amount of time to get right Sad
I first tried stenciling with masking tape -lol - basically I cut out all those trees, stuck them on to the top and painted over it all. However when i took it off, a lot of the paint had gone through. Then i remembered how pretty it had looked when the masking tape was still on with all the paint over it so I cut out my tree scene on white card, stuck that on then painted all over that.

This last is another view of the inside:

I'm hoping to expand how I do this becuase this was the first time I'd made anything like this. However I'm really happy with how this turned out - If you have any questions just ask. Grin
Hope you like! Cheesy
