1  COOKING / Dessert / Holy Sticks of Butter! 3 Layer Chocolate Coffee Cake on: June 26, 2011 12:59:42 PM

Hola Craftsters!

It's been forever since I posted, but I thought I'd share this cake I made for my boyfriend's birthday yesterday. It took me all morning and by the time it was all said and done I used 6 sticks of butter!! Plus 1/2 a cup of shortening. Absolutely ridiculous. But everyone loved it! I wouldn't know, as I hate coffee and didn't taste it. I'm very proud of how it turned out though! Definitely my most successful baking experience to date.

I got the recipe from here: http://danatreat.com/2010/12/did-you-make-that-cake/

All packaged up and ready for delivery!

I would love to answer any questions you might have, thanks so much for looking! Smiley

These look great! So much better and more personal than the generic sweatshirts my senior class had last year.

Hola Craftsters! As a freshman in college with no idea what I want to do with my life, I decided to take a photography class because that's always been something I've had an interest in. I also joined a photo club we have on campus and both have been great for motivating me to get out and take more pictures and get out of my little photography slump I've been in for the past few months. Anywhoo.. I'd love to know what you guys think of my work! Enjoy. Smiley

Phew, that was a little more than I thought! I would love to know which is your guys' favorite/least favorite and if you have any suggestions for me to improve.

Thanks for looking!

I've had so much fun looking through everybody's tattoos! I've been wanting a tattoo for a while now and last weekend I finally took the plunge. It's nothing earth-shattering but I love it. I'm really drawn to birds and I love the song Black Bird by the Beatles. Each bird also represents a member of my family. I'd love to know what you guys think!

I received my package from Lolailo yesterday!!!!! I was so excited to rip into it, but I had to stop and explain the concept of a swap to my mother. I'm still not sure she gets it. Roll Eyes

As a lot of you might have read in my bio, I'm heading off to my freshman year of college soon (less than 3 weeks!!!). Lolailo really took this to heart and crafted some amazing goodies that will definitely be joining me in my dorm room.

On to the goodies!

Of course I open the biggest package first...

How cute is that?! I love love love the color combination and I needed something just like this for my dorm. I love the ribbon and the adorable little bows really pull it all together.

Another shot...

Yeah, this will be getting a ton of use in my dorm room!

Next item up....

Can you say adorable?! I can't wait to find a place for this little piece of art. I honestly have to smile every time I look at it.  Cheesy

Gotta have a close up...

Correct me if I'm wrong but are his scales made from the inside of security envelopes??

Moving on...

I feel like I'm overusing words like "cute" and "adorable" but really, how else can I describe these? I was having a hard time photographing these so I this is what I had to resort to. I absolutely love them. They will surely liven up my closet at college. Smiley

And last but not least...

The picture does not do this justice! I don't know why I had such a difficult time photographing this.. I apologize for the quality. Sad It's a little mirror with a gorgeous blue frame with a border of faux buttons. Is this the last item that you were having trouble with, Lolailo? If so, it was totally worth it! Cheesy

Lolailo also included some patterns for really cute hats! I've never made a hat before, it'll be fun to try something new.

I'm so incredibly happy with my package! Thank you so much for being an amazing partner, Lolailo. I really appreciate all the work you went through to make sure everything was perfect. And thank you for making my first swap experience a fantastic one! I can't wait to do more swaps in the future. Smiley

CassandraChaos - Awesome loot! I'm loving the sugar skull theme and I have to giggle every time I look at the expression on your kitty's face.  Grin

that1girl - Woah! Cool stuff, you've got a lucky partner. Wish I could see a close-up of some of the stuff!
