Amagaaaaad, that's so cute! Strangely, I was literally just trying to figure out my measurement for a circle skirt... Now I'll have to make two! Grin

That's lovely! What's that fabric, it looks like some type of cotton with bunches of flowers? I think it really makes the dress pop, just adds so much texture.

Oh my! What is crayon tinting, exactly? I assume it's going over the fabric with SOME sort of crayon, but do you need a special kind, could it be washed, etc.?

Also, nostalgia overload, squee! It's a very good likeness.  Cheesy

Ooh, I love! A little bit of spring green and sunny yellow is just what we need in february, right?  Cheesy It looks really intricate and pretty, I may have to try that myself.

I don't actually know what a gruffalo is, but the name seems very fitting. I love his toothy little face! Grin

Have you tried looking low-carb diet desserts? They tend to cut out things like white flour and sugar. Oh, and I found a recipe for chick pea chocolate chip cookies:


It's not as weird as it sounds, unseasoned chick peas have a very mild flavour and grainy texture. A lot like potatoes, actually! Just be sure to use dark chocolate without sugar.

Well, the fat in the cream tends to float out to the edges as the caramel cools. It gives the candies a tiny slick of grease, so they tend not to stick.

Even if it doesn't work out as candy, you could add a bit more liquid and turn it into a mean caramel sauce, om nom nom...

gingerbread cookies, knck... Hmm, not sure if there's a good word for that, but it's basically chewy caramel candies. You can even make it in the microwave.

1 dl double cream
1 dl sugar
1 dl golden syrup

If you do it in the microwave, use a BIG bowl. This stuff boils huge. Just mix everything up, put it in the microwave for 8 minutes, taking out to stir occasionally. Use gloves!

If you do it on a stove, bring the whole thing to a boil while stirring, lower the heat and cook until it thickens up. You can use a candy thermometer or a caramel test to determine the right thickness. Just drip some into a glass of cold water, scoop it out and roll it up. When you can make a softish ball from it, it's done.

Once it's done cooking you can add some slivered almonds to the caramel as well, it's tasty. <3 Pour the caramel onto a papered tray and chop it up once cool, or directly into little wrappers like these:

They're like cupcake wrappers, just smaller.

You could turn the whole dress into xmas tree decorations!  Cheesy Lace garlands, white silk balls, gem (or pearls, studs, what have you) ornaments... Oooh, and lots of little angel ornaments.
