I know what you mean, I'd love to use denim for a lot of other projects, but there's always the issue of trying to get it to look like something other than denim patchwork. The reverse of a lot of denim fabric is pretty cool too, it's often a more subtle shade of blue and has a slightly different texture sometimes so I've thought of using it backwards on my next project.

It is, I've a way to go before I'm anywhere near as good as she was, but I think she's happy that someone from the family has taken an interest in something that was once her passion Smiley

Thanks guys Smiley
Yep, chocolate Philadelphia - I'm not sure if it's available in the US? I had never tried it but was intrigued, it works great for frosting. I followed a standard cream cheese frosting recipe and added some almond essence to it, (not to everyone's liking but I love it), it works well with the nuts in the Ferrero.

I made these this evening and I'm really pleased with how they turned out. They're chocolate sponge, with a Ferrero Rocher baked into the middle, topped with chocolate cream cheese frosting and dipped in milk chocolate. I was going to drizzle on some white or dark chocolate, making them quintuple chocolate, but that would have been ridiculous Tongue

I'd seen the ideas on Pinterest, for the Ferrero in the middle and the dipped frosting, and I was a little skeptical, especially about successfully dipping a big lump of frosting into melted chocolate without it falling in or making the chocolate curdle, but it totally worked. The other thing I wanted to try out was Cadbury's chocolate flavoured cream cheese, which I'd seen advertised and figured would make a wicked cream cheese frosting.  I was right Smiley

Before dipping

Aw thank you, but no I don't do it professionally at all, I would be afraid it might take the fun out of it if I did!  I just do it as a hobby, I got into it sort of by accident, I was never really interested in sugarcraft until recently.  

My grandmother was a professional cake maker, and she used to make the most insane cakes, mostly for weddings and kids' birthdays. She stopped doing it a very long time ago, and she recently sent me some of her books and a tin of little odds and ends she used to use, so I decided to have a go and ended up addicted!  

This pic has icing flowers that she made over 30 years ago - still intact, they were in the tin she gave me! Hers totally put mine to shame...
