1  Lemon: the shy snake cake in Dessert by BoomerBile on: February 27, 2013 01:11:11 PM
Meet Lemon!
Isn't he just the cutest lemon snake cake?

He was inspired by a cake I saw on 9gag over a year ago. (It isn't up anymore)
My friend has/loves snakes, and this was just the cake for her 21st birthday.
The original was a little too realistic (for some of my other snake-phobia friends), so I made him pleasantly plump with big black eyes.

The cake was extra yummy with 1/3cup fresh grated lemon zest (6 lemons) added to the mix.
His head was a giant cake ball made from scraps after sculpting his body.

Here he is with the lucky birthday girl.

Thanks for looking!


***PS: I am happy to report, he was a big success at the party!!!

^,^ Whoo Hoo! My SD USB came in today!


Myrdda's package of awesome:

First, we have a super cute glass cup with one of my favorite quotes.  Cheesy

Next, we have an epic labyrinth-inspired party mask.
The beak and a few feathers broke during transit, but luckily, I was able fix it.

Now, time for something I have been wearing a lot lately.
This gorgeous cowl is straight from my Pinterest! I LOVE it!

This has been a wonderful swap. Thank you so much, Myrdda!

3  Psychonauts Warp Worm NPC in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by BoomerBile on: October 21, 2012 08:48:46 AM
Man, I love Psychonauts!

It is really fun, creative, original game that keeps me replaying it regularly.
Every time I play, I find new lil cutscenes I have missed before.
This weekend was my last visit to Camp Whispering Rock.
While playing, I just loved how up beat these lil' guys were.

Every level, they just hum, blow bubbles, and dance at checkpoints, even if the world is blowing up around them.
That is the type of energy my house NEEDS. Cheesy
He makes a great addition to my gamer home.

Sorry for the tiny reference above. It is the only in-game pic I could find of them online. Cry

4  Little TF2 Pyro Tealight in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by BoomerBile on: October 20, 2012 10:54:05 PM
Being a gamer, I need gamer decor.
My bathroom is Valve game
(Team Fortress, Portal, Half Life)  designed, and it was missing a little something.
It needed a bit more
Here she is, roasting her mallow. <3

If I ever get around to it, I'll add her flamethrower, bag of marshmallows, and the pyro emblem. =p
Who should I make next?

*sorry the pics aren't that great*

Okay guys. Left my cord at work so I had to pick it up. Roll Eyes
Here is V3nu5's package of  Horde Goodness!

Pics of my girl,
Hearthstone Mug with Horde rug,
a locked chest, handmade bracer (lvl 90),
a lucky lil Stinker,
and various potions to keep me up and running.  Grin

My favorite item is the Gnome Heart. He will be an excellent pin cushion <3

Inside the chest was various items to help around my classroom.
The mug broke in transit, but I think it looks better without the handle

6  Valve/Portal/TF2 Gamer swap <3 in New Swap Theme Ideas by BoomerBile on: September 02, 2012 03:19:24 AM

, Team Fortress, Left 4 Dead, Counter Strike, Half Life, Dota 2, Alien Swarm

All the goodness of the great company Valve in one awesome swap!

Sad to say, I can not organize at the moment.
Just don't have the programs to.
I might get them, if there is enough buzz/ free time though.
Thinking a middle to large point swap with a variety of Valve character and game interests.
Any interest?

9  Dr.Seuss Cake with Horton and Friends! +fondant "refreshing" tut in Dessert by BoomerBile on: September 11, 2011 09:41:06 PM
Another cake from MsKatie and myself, and our BIGGEST yet.

It is a 3 tier funfetti and chocolate cake for our cousin's baby shower (which was a great success).
She doesn't want to know if it is a boy or girl, so we stuck to something all kids love....Dr.Seuss!
Each layer was to celebrate her favorite books as a kid,
Green Eggs and Ham, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, The Cat in the Hat, and Horton hears a Who

below are some progress shots

Enjoy! Cheesy

Lower on the page is a small illustration of my fondant "refreshing" technique  Wink
