1  COOKING / Dessert / Nyan cat cake on: August 16, 2011 06:50:26 AM
The featured nyan cat topic reminded me that I have this beauty to share:

It is a nyan cat cake for a friend, made from two sheet cakes and pudding buttercream and chocolate or marzipan icing. The tail is made of rainbow cookies.

I used paperboard, aka my cereal box

That's what I used: cardboard I had lying around...  Wink

Thanks for all the nice comments! Still haven't found the post with the original idea...

They are hand-stitched. I thought of embroidering them because I'm really bad at drawing...  Wink

I love my chucks but of course they are better with a personal, crafty touch...

These are embroidered with cool glow-in-the-dark thread! Grin

I found a design for cute floss bobbins (I think it was here on craftster but I can't find it anymore) and decided to make a few:

They are great because you can string up the colours you need, great for embroidery on the road. And of cause they are cute...  Grin
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / handspun socks on: August 02, 2009 07:56:52 AM
For my mothers birthday I've knitted my first socks made from handspun yarn. I couldn't understand why people spin kilometers of yarn and then knit socks when handspun 2-ply yarn is much weaker than commercial sock yarn. I just knit these socks because I had some handspun yarn left over from a lace scarf.
But now that I've tried them on for the photos, I think I might need some handspun socks...

The pattern I used is:
It's a great pattern and fun to knit and I highly recommend it!

Thanks for all the nice comments!

The stencilling is really easy. I just cut out the stencil from baking paper, put it on the cake and then took a brush and thick melted chocolate (if it is too thin it will run under the paper and ruin everything) and painted from the edges of the stencil to the middle.
Then I took the stencil away immediately, cause once the chocolate is hardened you can't get the stencil out again.
