Whatever your plans are to celebrate Halloween tonight...
The kids and I brought Scratchy to the vet for his 8:00 pre-op check in on Tuesday. I didn't really tell them what EXACTLY was going to be done to him. They're 6 and 4, my son and daughter, and I wasn't sure how technical and specific I wanted - or needed - to be… Continue reading Travails with Scratchy
The other evening Alex and Julia wanted to try on their Halloween costumes. Again.
Julia is a pink princess (of course), and Alex is Anakin Skywalker from the recent Star Wars/Clone Wars movie.
They looked cute and all was fine.
Something went wrong.
Very, very wrong.
Okay, it's not a Halloween-themed cake, but it was for my sister's birthday, which is on Halloween, so I'm including it. Because I can. Not much to say about the cake - it was chocolate, of course, and I cut that white piece out of fondant and then painted the Power Puff Girls on… Continue reading Cakes – Power Puff Girls – Meredith’s Birthday – 2001 (I think)
I had the best time making these cupcakes today. This post should have appeared on Tuesday, but I hadn't planned to participate this week. And then I was reminded that Clara of I*Heart*Food4Thought had suggested decorating the Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes for Halloween. Well, HECK! Now I HAVE to participate! (And by the way, you can… Continue reading Tuesdays Thursdays Halloween With Dorie – Chocolate Chocolate Eyeball Cupcakes
For example, when I posted this yesterday. And told you I wouldn't be posting for Tuesdays with Dorie. Tuesdays. And yesterday? Was a Wednesday. Yeah. I's real smart. And then, to that post, I received the following comment from Chocolatechic: "Drat. I was looking forward to your creativity with the cupcakes." And I thought "that's nice -… Continue reading In Which I Remind You I Am A Moron
Sorry about the poor picture quality - long story about problems with our main computer and blahbiddy blah blah blah. Who cares. Anyway - this cake - disguised as a huge everything bagal - is kind of part 2 of the previous year's cake theme, which was the giant coffee mug. As I'd mentioned… Continue reading Cakes – Everything Bagel – Meredith’s Birthday 1997
Here are a few photos I took one morning last week. We'd had some frost, and I went outside to start up/warm up the truck. The sun was rising higher over to the east there, and as the rays and warmth touched places on the truck, the frost would melt and ghostly steam would rise. … Continue reading Sorry – no TWD today. But there ARE some Ghostly Steam pictures to see instead!
Love them spiders. They're so cute. This was a miniature cake for Calvin. I also made a separate cake for Meredith - the family was celebrating their birthdays on the same day, but I wanted to make them each their own cake. Anyway, I made Calvin's chocolate cake with my 4" springform pans. I… Continue reading Cakes – Spider Cake #3 – Calvin’s Birthday – 2001 (I think)
Look at him, all happy and carefree. He does not know that it is Neuter Day.
