1  White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake from allrecipes.com in Dessert by Spiderbite on: March 31, 2010 02:41:24 AM
For my boyfriend's birthday I asked him what kind of cake he wanted. And he said yellow. :\ SO I pressed him a bit more and he said he liked cheesecake. I thought 'hmmm... I could make a no bake jello cheesecake' but then I thought 'nay, I'm an accomplished artisan and I can do better. It must be from scratch!' Then I thought, 'ugh but I'm lazy...' so I waited until the last minute and had to run around like a crazy person to finish it. But that's how I do most things.

Anyway, here is the delicious delicious recipe:


So, I thought I would document the whole thing to post on my flickr and on craftser, but then my aforementioned laziness kicked in. So I only got a few snaps in. The finished product:

SO here's the very beginning of my baking escapade. Raspberries (organic, ain't I fancy?) 2 tablespoons sugar, cornstarch, and water pre-boil:

Here they go a'boiling. Look how steamy they're getting. It smelled absolutely delicious:

Then to strain the finished boiled raspberry sauce to remove those pesky seeds. It took FOREVER. I mean painfully forever. I had to stir and stir and push and push it through the strainer. This was about the time I decided that photographing the whole process was a bit much. It was worth it in the end, but geez.

And then a whole bunch of mixing, baking, and refrigerating ensued. After which I used extra raspberries and white chocolate to decorate. It was impossible to find white chocolate at my grocery store so I ended up sacrificing an unwitting Easter bunny. I used a cheese grater on that little white chocolate fellow and made little flakes to adorn the top of the cheesecake, as you can see in the picture here:

Sorry bunny.

The recipe called for chocolate cookie crumbs for the bottom crust, but I used chocolate graham crackers which were mighty tasty.

And there you have it. A tasty treat full of love and sweat... well not literally full of sweat, but you know what I mean.

I love everything Superhooker made! She really went all out, above and beyond. Thank you!

Here is a picture of the entire collection:

Here is the badass hood she sent me, modeled by the Cheat, since I am so unphotogenic. It has spikes along the top like a mohawk and silver stars at the bottom.

Skull and zombie jewelry with a handy box to put them in.

Day of the Dead soaps that smell really good, magnets of some of my favorite bands (and a werewolf!), with a skull bag.

A huge journal on the left, and two spooky reads to the right.

A drawstring bag to carry all my new goodies in.

And my favorite piece I saved for last! My new zombie friend with dangily eyeball, exposed brain and missing foot. (Detail pics to come soon)

Thanks so much superhooker!  Grin

3  H.P. Lovecraft hat? What should I do with it? in What the heck can I do with THIS? by Spiderbite on: April 03, 2007 10:05:47 PM
I am a big fan of H.P. Lovecraft. So, I bought this here hat online:

I got said hat and I don't really like it. It doesn't fit right, I don't like the brass eyelets, or the strap or anything! ANyway, I don't really want the hat, but I do like the embroidery on the front. I'm going to cut it out!

What do you guys suggest I do with it? I was thinking of getting a black button down shirt and putting it on the left breast and then embroidering my name above it. Kind of like a work shirt.

Anybody have any better suggestions?  Huh

A revamp of the Little Red Riding Hood story that I've written and begun illustrating. Lots more to do, gonna add a little character to the wall behind her, I'm thinking torn wallpaper and bugs or pictures. Also a shadow outside the window of the impending doom and a logo on the plastic bag for the specific grocery store it's from...
