1  COOKING / Dessert / Snowflake Cupcakes - mint and chocolate on: December 23, 2008 06:05:53 PM
It started with white chocolate snowflakes that needed a home.

It ends with chocolate-mint filled chocolate cupcakes, covered with mint butter cream icing and topped with said handmade white chocolate snowflakes.

Merry Christmas!

I wish I could give you recipes, but most of it is made up. I can, however, give you some pretty pictures.

Thanks everyone for the sweet comments!

Personally, I think Kodak will bring back polaroid film in about 5 years as an 'anniversary edition' so they can make lots of money. Or so I hope.

So, as I'm assuming everyone knows, Kodak recently announced that they are phasing out the production of polaroid film. Pretty devastating for the indie-hipster set, as well as all polaroid lovers. My brother is both. So, in honor of his deep, undying love for this dying art (and because I have no money, and I made this with materials I already had) I made this:

A felt, stuffed TO SCALE polaroid camera. With a removable polaroid. And extra awesome. This is legit the best thing I have ever made, ever (look through my topic history, I'm sure you'll agree). So few things I start turn out the way I planned, so I'm really, really happy and not humble at all! Oops..oh, well, I'm sure he'll love it. I love it. Really hard to give this one away, but I must.

Thanks for looking!

(SO many pictures because I love it SO much)

One more for posterity.

Oh, yeah, loosely based on this model:

I made one more polaroid with removable/interchangeable photos of our family.

This is the best thing I have ever seen on Craftster, period.

5  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Vegan Cupcakes (duh, what else do vegans eat?) on: October 27, 2008 12:23:30 PM
I actually just use a master recipe of my own creation (adapted from several I've tried) and the vary from there!

Vegan Cupcake (Master Recipe)
1/4 cup margarine

1/3 cup veggie oil

2 cups flour

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 table spoons apple cider vinegar (dissolved in 1/3 cup water)

1 1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cup soy or rice milk

Bake at 375 for 15-20 mins.

For the cinnamon brown sugar, I added 2 tbsp cinnamon to the batter then eyeballed a mixture of oil, cinnamon and brown sugar which I sprinkled over top.

For the chocolate, I added 3/4 cup cocoa and 1/2 cup (organic, chunky) peanut butter.

Take a night off, some repurposed material, one viewing of 'Anne Of Green Gables' and you get...

I'm not vegan myself, but I like the texture and flavor of vegan baked goods so much more! Plus, I love a challenge. People never believe when I tell them that what they're eating is vegan. Also, being able to bake without perishables (besides the soy/rice milk which I buy only as needed) works reaaally well for my college-dorm-no-fridge self.

Generally, I use apple cider vinegar and baking soda instead of eggs, veggie oil or applesauce, and soy or rice milk.

Yeah, uh, I have to make the batter on my floor.

Batter! My favorite, and no salmonella-y eggs to worry about.

Finished product. Cinnamon Brown Sugar, Vanilla and Chocolate Fudge Peanut Butter, respectively.

I only have one long, mellismatic word for you:

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A Giraffe, a cat, an octopus and a jellystar! (stuffed with images) on: July 25, 2008 09:56:59 AM
I love plushies, but I never have time to make them!

I made these four during my first semester of college.

The first was a giraffe for my roommate/best friend. He is hot pink with green and orange giraffe spots. He also has her name "tattooed" on his back (she wants to get a giraffe back piece sometime soon). A broken wire bracelet is in his neck so it is bendable, but I wouldn't recommend trying to, as it pokes through the fabric when you bend it. He is 100% hand sewn and full of love and fabric scraps.

She likes him a lot.

The second is a joint venture with the aforementioned best friend. We hand sewed this cat (she is a much better hand sewer than me, so it looks way better than the giraffe) for a friend. He doesn't have a name, but is made from pink corduroy and purple mystery fabric (he is very soft).

We loved him, but couldn't keep him.

This Octopus is such a cutie with his big, google-y eyes, so I named him Oogly. Unfortunately I only got this one picture of him before he was given away as a birthday present.

The last (my favorite) is an orange and purple Sea Horse with buttons and a swirly. Emily forgot the word for Sea Horse and called him a Jelly Star for about 15 minutes while I tried to figure out what the heck she was talking about. Hence: Jelly Star! This one was also given away to a friend. Geez I need to keep some of my plushies for myself!

With the giraffe!

Thanks for looking! This post really made me want to make some plushies today!
