Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology - Cherries!
House: Sssssslytherin!
Project Name: Bourbon Cherries
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: I've seen Bourbon Cherries before, but none made out of the Rainer variety (aka my favorite kind!). I didn't have a fancy cherry pitter, so I just used a chopstick to push the pits out. Then pour your favorite Bourbon over the cherries. Shake once every few days and steep for about a month. I am sure I will lose patience before then, but I will try my best!  Cheesy
Project Picture:

They look so pretty! I can't wait to see how it all turns out! You can use the flavored Bourbon in cocktails and eat the cherries as a boozy snack or on top of ice cream!   Wink

@ ntrebleagain- Those dessert stands are great? what kind of glue did you use? last time I tried to do something like that well... it resulted in lots of duck tape
The stuff I used is called Glass and Tile Adhesive. It's supposed to be waterproof and I let it dry overnight before messing with anything. They seem sufficiently stuck to me!  Cheesy

Class: Apparition
House: Slytherin, of course!  Roll Eyes
Project Name: Dessert Pedestals
Project Page Link: None needed. It's pretty simple and I believe in you! You can do this!
Brief Description: Our Dollar Tree has lots of interesting glassware that I wouldn't normally use. From that stash I found a small plate and bowl that I thought would look good with a cupcake on them and a couple of candlesticks. I waved my wand foolishly and shouted a silly incantation and *poof* dessert pedestals! (You can also use glass adhesive in a pinch. Wink )
Project Picture:

I just got off of work at 07:30, so I'm not really feeling the whole making cupcakes thing right meow. (Eating them, on the other hand...) Until my next bout of baking, I'm using these lovelies as props. Wink

Hope everyone has a lovely day! I'm off to Zzz...!  Grin

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Study of Ancient Runes - gebō or Gyfu
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Patriotic Cake Pops
Project Page Link: Inspiration from Party City. I had actually found the picture on Pinterest and just now found the how-to. We ended up going by Bakerella's Red Velvet Cake Ball Recipe because we LURVE us some red velvet!  Grin
Brief Description: Tonight I helped my mom make these cake pops for her ID4 Goodie Day at work tomorrow. I feel this fits for SoAR by showing a generous spirit.
Project Picture:

There *may* have been a few more than was needed for flag that went home with me  Roll Eyes ... That doesn't take away any points, does it?  Cheesy

::A patronus looking like a bear, or maybe a large dog, comes into the Slytherin common room. A voice comes from it::
I am away from Hogwarts for a week and a half.  Do not let that give you ideas, though, as I have ways of watching over the students and will know if anything is afoot.  Be kind to the other staff and students, I do not want to hear of any elitist talk, snarkiness, nor Muggle Baiting of any kind. Happy Crafting!

::The patronus fades away::

*casts muffliato over her fellow Slytherins*  Wink

Challenge: Detention in the Dungeons June - Kitchen Duty
House: Sssssslytherin!
Project Name: (Less than) 10 minute Cake Batter Fudge
Project Page Link: Shamelessly taken from Baked from a Box. I do enjoy the recipes and writing from this blog. You should check it out! Smiley

(ETA recipe to post) I made a few adaptations based on what I had in my kitchen at the time. This is for my double batch version of the recipe, the picture shown using a 7.75x7.75 pan.

Cake Batter Fudge
    2 cup white cake mix
    2 cup powdered sugar
    1 stick butter, cut into small squares
    1/2 cup half and half

Mix cake mix and sugar in microwave-safe bowl. Add butter and half and half. Don’t stir.
Microwave for 4 minutes. Stir immediately until completely combined. Add sprinkles. Do not overmix as sprinkle colour may bleed.
Spread into greased pan. Refrigerate for at least one hour. I let mine cool on the stove top for the first 20 minutes since I had used an aluminium pan and it was HOT after pouring the batter in. No need to heat up your fridge!

Brief Description: This fudge takes less than 10 minutes to make, is made entirely in the microwave, and then placed in the fridge to set up. And the batter? OMG it smells and tastes wonderful! I challenge you to make this and NOT lick the bowl/spoon/wisk/spatula!   Wink
Project Picture: I was excited to actually finish something after a crazy couple of weeks, so the pic I'm posting is before it's completely set!  Cheesy I used white cake mix since I didn't have yellow. I can't wait to try this again with other flavor mixes or flavored sprinkles/bits!

(I can practical hear Ant Bee squeeeeing...wait, do Slytherins squeeee?  ...of course who doesn't let out a squee every now & then....inevitable really)....
OF COURSE Slytherins squee! Sometimes we just squee over things we probably shouldn't, lol.  Wink

And have to add that I LOVE your robes (aka avatar). Grin
Thank you! My "robes" came from the Quidditch World Cup in Kissimmee this past April!  Cheesy
