Emoji Cup Cakes

Part two of my daughter's birthday has taken place this week: treating to her class mates. At first she wanted me to make angler fish cupcakes, of course, but after seeing emoji cupcakes somewhere, she immediately changed her mind. And she also knew exactly what she would wear on the big day: her emoji T-shirt, which can change from happy to sad by brushing the paillettes the emoji is made of, together with her what she calls her posh jacket.

After the last birthday I had the intention not to put so much time and effort in the school birthday treats anymore and the emoji cupcakes didn't seem to take too much of both, but again I found myself being busy in my kitchen for hours. But, the result is nice!

Made It! #3

~I love Pinterest and would like to make one thing that I find on Pinterest every week. Since I have way too much pins, I hope this will be a way to reduce the amount of pins on my boards. It can be anything, from cooking to crochet and from sewing to papter crafts. Just small projects that doesn't take weeks to make~ 

Last week I told you about the Angler Fish pendant I wanted to make for my angler fish loving daughter. Pretty easy, as showed in the instructions on You Tube. This is my angler fish:


I added a tail and fins and the angler's fish main feature: a little light at the end of its angler. I used a little yellow glass bead for this.

 Once a month I go through my pantry to see which food is overdue. Most of it I throw in the garbage bin, but some things are still good enough to use. Then I go over to Pinterest to look for recipes with that particular ingredient in it.
I found some almond meal in my pantry, so I want to make the Orange Almond Cake below for next week. You can find the recipe here, in case you want to give it a try, too.

Valentine's Heart Pendant

On Pinterest I saw this heart pendant that was sold by an Etsy store once. The Etsy Store seemed empty and unused now, but I really liked the heart and because I had some polymer clay left overs from other projects, I gave it a try myself. Just altered it a bit (making the breastbone more looking as a breastbone and I placed the heart behind the ribcage) and now I have my very own pendant.

Pikachu

After making Weedle last week for my oldest daughter I had to make Pikachu for my youngest this week. No idea what or who these creatures are, I just make what my daughters asked me to make. Of course I know they're from a Japanese game, but that's about it.

Made it! #2

~I love Pinterest and would like to make one thing that I find on Pinterest every week. Since I have a lot of pins (that I've just pinned and only that), I hope this will be a way to reduce the amount of pins on my boards. It can by anything, from cooking to crochet and from sewing to papter crafts. Just small projects that doesn't take weeks to make~

Last week I announced I wanted to make a Thai Peanut Soup. Unfortunately my grocery store didn't have all ingredients and because I'm not the kind of person that loves to shop six different stores to find what I want, I always improvise a bit when I can't find all the stuff I need in one place. Instead of sweet potatoes for example I used normal potatoes. And because no one in my family, except me, likes mushrooms, I skipped them from the recipe. Instead of fresh lime, I used juice from a little bottle. Even though, the soup was delicious! A keeper!

For next week I would like to make the polymer clay angler fishes below, since my youngest daughter is totally into angler fishes these days.
