1  COOKING / Dessert / Inside out apple crumble cake! on: October 06, 2008 06:39:25 AM

The crumble was intially supposed to be on the top.
But due to some fortunate mistake, it ended up on the inside?
.. it was delicious anyway Smiley

Here is the recipe:
250g butter, at room temperature
250g caster sugar
4 eggs
250g self-raising flour
3 tbsp juice (I used apple and mango)

75g plain flour
60g brown sugar
50g butter
1 tsp cinnamon sugar
2 green apples

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Grease pan.

Cream butter and sugar until smooth.
Add eggs one by one, beating well.
Add flour and juice.
Pour batter into pan.

For crumble, combine the flour, sugar, butter and cinnamon.
Rub with fingertips until it becomes crumbly.

Finely dice the peeled apples, mix with crumble and sprinkle over cake.

Bake for 45-60 minutes, until you can stick a skewer in and it comes out clean.
Somehow my cake swallowed the crumble, so the crumble was sandwiched between the cake, which was utterly delicious.

I had three strawberries on the top with icing sugar (only do this when the cake is completely cool, or your strawberries go soggy and moosh and.. not very nice), and served with ice cream.
It went in a matter of seconds. Smiley
2  COOKING / Dessert / Jackson Pollock cake :) on: September 26, 2008 10:21:29 PM
In other words, a rainbow cake.
Cause it's splattered on and I made it for my end-of-twelfth-grade art class party, it's a Jackson Pollock cake.

It went like wildfire Smiley although it looks a bit dodgy, it was quite yummy, so I'm proud.

And this is what we did during the party.

I only have the right half of it, but it's pretty cool isn't it Grin
3  COOKING / Dessert / Best cake EVER- pirate ship. on: September 21, 2008 06:40:14 AM
My friend made this awesome cake for me for my sixteenth birthday two years ago.
It was back when we were fanatical pirate fans and I was Commodore Gee and she was Captain Jessy.

It went pretty quickly:

4  COOKING / Dessert / Poo cupcakes! on: September 20, 2008 07:51:26 AM
These were a Congratulations-for-getting-your-P's thing for my friend. She has a twisted sense of humour.

They were absolutely delicious.
The poo is buttercream icing with melted chocolate and mooshed up m&ms.

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My boyfriend made me a record bag!! on: September 16, 2008 06:20:30 AM

It was part of my birthday present. Roll Eyes

6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / [this is why we can't have nice things] - my art major work on: September 15, 2008 08:14:08 AM
This is my twelfth grade art major work.

aka.. millions and millions of inchies!
I had lots of fun doing this. I like that my art was fun art, instead of the serious, painterly type of art that most of the other people in my class was doing. It was extremely relaxing and de-stressing and if I had more time I would probably have kept making more.

Craftster has been a huge source of inspiration for my artwork, so I would like to thank everyone out there who inspired me... (that's a LOT of you)
In particular the inchies idea! So thankyou for that Smiley

Here are some detail shots. There are 25 pieces altogether, so.. yeah I didn't take photos of all of them.

These ones are inchies Mod Podged onto painted black canvas and then glossed with this super shiny gloss I found in the storeroom 'Final Gloss Varnish'. Shiiiiny.

And these ones are the bigger ones, on cardboard:

(This one's my personal favorite out of everything. For my Extension English course, our area of study is called Retreat from the Global, so this one is inspired by that. I dedicated it to my teacher on the back  Grin)

And on perspex (found in the storeroom.. it's like heaven in there)

It gets marked sometime in October, so.. fingers crossed. When I get it back I'm going to hang them all up in my room. I'm really excited for that Smiley
Thanks for looking!!

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Boosh bag! on: August 25, 2008 06:19:38 AM
It's my friend's birthday and she's a huge fan of the Mighty Boosh so I made her this bag Smiley

I used Sharpies, acrylic paint, coloured pens.
And the bag itself is calico, the easiest tote bag ever made, patternless and very nearly scissors-less (it rips perfectly straight, you see, so I just do a teeny little snip and riiiip it Smiley )

The design is totally not mine, I got it from here:

I'm giving it to her tomorrow Smiley

10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Valentine's Day Inchies on: February 13, 2008 04:50:26 AM
Inchie obsession!
Last minute Valentine's Day .. 'cards'.
For my friends:

There are little messages on the back on each one, but I got lazy and didn't take a picture.
We like to pretend we're not into Valentine's Day..
I think we are. Secretly.

And for my boyfriend (I put his in a card):
