11  Hoot! Owl and pumpkin cookies in Dessert by BrushfireFaeries on: August 25, 2008 07:25:32 AM
I made some sugar cookies this weekend for the fall open house at a friend's store. There were cats, bats, witches' brooms, owls and pumpkins. I liked how the owls and pumpkins came out best. Smiley

Plus, everyone said they were super tasty! Thanks for looking!

12  Mmm... mini cupcakes! in Dessert by BrushfireFaeries on: August 06, 2008 07:20:21 AM

I made mini cupcakes last night! It turns out it's not a mini workload, though... I got 104 out of one batch of batter, and could have made 5 or 6 more had I not run out of wrappers - which, by the way, I think are so cute! I used the Birthday Cupcake recipe from the Cupcake Doctor cookbook. Great cookbook, if you're looking for one. Her Cake Doctor book is awesome, too!

13  Another not so religious Baptism cake! in Dessert by BrushfireFaeries on: August 04, 2008 08:27:20 AM
I posted the cake I made for my friend's first son at his Baptism last year, and here's the cake I ended up making for her second son this past weekend. My friends are religious, but not intensely religious, and they didn't want a cake that was a cross or anything like that. Their son was baptised at the beach. His name is William Finn, but they call him Finn, and that's why I made the middle name larger.

I was so happy with it Smiley I hope you like it!

14  Jungle plates in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by BrushfireFaeries on: July 29, 2008 11:35:48 AM
My friend's son's baptism is this weekend, and my roommate, Ryan, and I painted him a set of jungle plates to hang on the walls of his jungle-themed nursery. Excuse the pictures - they were taken on my webcam at work. We painted the plates at a local shop called Glazed Over - they did all the firing.

The lion is a bit green, because we painted the yellow on top of the blue. Otherwise, all good! I did the animals, Ryan did the patterns.

15  Pop-up Jungle Card! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by BrushfireFaeries on: July 28, 2008 05:56:00 PM
My friend, Dana, showed me how to make pop-up cards this weekend. While hers are very intricate, this was my first one so it's pretty basic. I decided to make a jungle-themed card for my friend's son's Baptism. (I'm not religious, and I'm giving him a set of hand-painted jungle plates for his jungle-themed nursery as a gift, so I thought it fit fine.) You can't tell in the pictures too well, but the elephant and giraffe are both popping out of the card.

If I changed anything, I'd turn the giraffe so it was facing the elephant. Otherwise, I'm pretty happy with my first attempt at pop-up cards. Smiley

16  (Not too religious) Baptism Cake in Dessert by BrushfireFaeries on: July 28, 2008 10:06:19 AM
My good friends' little guy was baptised last summer, in a laid back beach ceremony followed by a family party. They aren't overly religious, perhaps more spiritual than anything, so they didn't want their cake to be in the shape of a cross or anything like that.

This is what I came up with:

It was hard because I didn't have air conditioning and the icing kept melting, hence the slightly sloppy letters. Also, I should have made the "sand" out of crushed cookies or something, because as you can see the moist icing kept sopping it all up. Anyway, everyone still liked it. Smiley

Her second son's baptism is this weekend, and I'm still trying to come up with a cake idea for him. Wish me luck!

17  Re: Cupcake Pops and Bites in Dessert by BrushfireFaeries on: July 28, 2008 09:46:15 AM
Hey! So your post totally inspired me and I went over to bakerella and ended up making some cupcake pops myself! It was a lot of fun, but you're right - a lot of work. The only problem I had was the cake was so moist that some of the cupcakes ended up sliding down the lollypop stick and the stick poked out through the top. Any suggestions?

Here they are:

18  Valentine's Day Treats <3 in Valentine's Day by BrushfireFaeries on: February 14, 2008 08:02:19 AM
I got this idea from patty_o_furniture, and she said it came from somewhere on etsy, I think. In any case, here are my Valentine's Day cookies! The underwear cookies idea I credit to patty_o... I also made hearts and x's and o's, some pink krispie treats and Valentine M&M cookies. I also stamped up some little boxes and did them up with ribbon. I hope my guy likes them Smiley

19  Pair box in Valentine's Day by BrushfireFaeries on: January 23, 2008 10:59:01 AM
I posted this on the Valentine thread last year, but it's a bit hard to find and I just thought it might be helpful to all you ladies out there (and gentlemen) looking for things to make for a significant other. I got the idea from another craftster, just went about it differently. Smiley

It's one of my favorite things I've made for my guy.

20  Mirror Mobile! in Completed Projects by BrushfireFaeries on: January 07, 2008 07:20:34 AM
These aren't the best photos because of the crazy shadows going on, however, I made this mirror mobile for my friends for Christmas. They loved it. It's a very easy thing to make - the hoop is wrapped in ribbon, and the strands are just glass beads with little mirrors glued sporadically in - and every time I've given one I've had great reactions.
