Fondant Rose

posted May 27, 2014, 4:20 PM by Unknown user   [ updated May 27, 2014, 4:20 PM by JuliaV 74 ]

What You Need:
  • Cornstarch
  • Fondant
How To Make It:
  1. In advance: Make the rose center. Roll a 1/2 in. ball of fondant and form into a teardrop shape. Coat the end of a toothpick with vegetable shortening, insert into bottom of rose center; let dry at least 24 hours.
  2. Roll fondant 1/16 in. thick on Roll & Cut Mat lightly dusted with cornstarch. Using the large rose cutter from the Stepsaving Set cut 3 blossom shapes. Cover 2 of the blossoms with plastic wrap and set aside. On remaining blossom, use a spatula to make a 1/2 in. cut between each petal toward middle of blossom. Move blossom to thick foam and form a cup shape by pressing lightly in middle.
  3. Brush the middle of blossom with water. Insert the toothpick holding the rose center into the middle of the blossom and thread blossom up to the bottom of the rose center. Visualize the 5-petal blossom as a stick figure, with petals corresponding to "head," "arms" and "legs." Brush the "head" petal with water and wrap around rose center.
  4. Brush one "arm" and opposite "leg" with water and fold up to cover the center bud. Repeat for remaining petals. Gently press bottom to shape. Pinch off any excess fondant from bottom. Furl back petal edges of the outer layer of petals.
  5. Prepare the next blossom by making 1/2 in. cuts between each petal. Transfer to thin foam and use ball tool to soften petal edges. Transfer to thick foam and use ball tool to cup the 2 "arm" petals. Turn over blossom and cup 2 "leg" petals and "head" petal. Turn over blossom again and cup the center. Brush with water and thread onto toothpick. Brush the 2 "arm" petals with water and attach, centering over the seams of the previous 2 petals.
  6. Brush remaining petals with water and attach, spacing evenly. Press bottom to shape; pinch off excess if needed.
  7. Prepare the last blossom by making 1/2 in. cuts between each petal. Transfer to thin foam. Use ball tool to soften petal edges. Transfer to thick foam. Using the ball tool, cup all petals. Turn blossom shape over and cup center. Brush center with water. Thread toothpick through the center of the blossom shape. Brush water inside petals as needed.
  8. Turn rose over and let petals fall naturally into place. Gently press petals against the base to attach.
That is how you make a fondant rose. Hope you enjoyed!

You Will Need:
  • String
  • Scissors
How To Make It:
  1. Take the string to the right and put it under the string in the middle and over the string on the left.
  2. Take the string on the left and put it over the strings in the middle and through the loop that the first string made. Pull tight. You are done with one half square knot.
  3. Now, you shall do the same again, but mirrored. Take the string to the right, put it over the string in the middle and below the string to the left.

Candy Stripe Bracelet

posted May 26, 2014, 6:31 PM by Unknown user   [ updated May 26, 2014, 6:31 PM by JuliaV 74 ]

What You Need:
  • String
  • Scissors
  • Tape
How To Make It:
  1. You begin any friendship bracelet by choosing the colors, cutting the string into equal lengths, tying it into a knot, and fastening the knot under tape. You should lay them out and seperate them based on the color you want the stripes to appear. 
  2. There is only one find of knot in this bracelet: the forward knot. You start by taking the string you want to be first (any string works) and pull it slightly to the left and fold over the other strings. Tuck the end of the string under and through the fold you just made.
  3. Keep doing this with the other stings until you reach the end.
That is how you make the Candy stripe bracelet! Hope you enjoyed!


  

Chevron Bracelet

posted May 21, 2014, 6:16 PM by Unknown user   [ updated May 21, 2014, 6:16 PM by JuliaV 74 ]

You’ll need:

  • embroidery thread
  • a safety pin or tape
  • a pair of scissors
How To Make It:
  1. Start by cutting several strands of embroidery thread at about 24 inches each. Make sure there are two sets of each color. Combine the threads and tie a knot, leaving at least 3 inches of slack. Tape it to a flat surface or safety pin it to a pillow. Separate the two sets, arranging the strands in a mirror-image pattern with the outside strands the same color and so on moving inwards.
  2. Start on the left side with the outermost color and make a forward knot by creating a 4-shape over the 2nd color, loop it under and back through the opening.
  3. Pull up and to the right to tighten. Make the same knot twice over each color. Continue knotting over each color, towards the right, until the outermost color has carried over to the middle. This is one half of the chevron pattern.
  4. Now pick up the outermost color on the right side and make a backward knot, creating a reverse 4-shape over the 2nd color, loop it under and back through the opening. Pull up and to the left to tighten. Don’t forget to knot twice over each color!
  5. Continue knotting towards the left until the outermost strand reaches the middle. Tie a backwards knot with the two middle strands to connect the two halves.  The first chevron row is complete! Continue with the the next color, which is now the outermost strand.
  6. Remembering the color order is important for the first few rows but after the 3rd or 4th row, the strands will fall in place. Finish it with a knot and a braid. 
That is how you make a chevron bracelet. Hope you enjoyed!

Incredible Bracelet

posted Apr 29, 2014, 5:47 PM by Unknown user   [ updated Apr 29, 2014, 5:51 PM by JuliaV 74 ]

What you'll need

  • Hemp cord
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Beads and buttons

How to make it

  1. To make a bracelet, you need two strands of hemp, one twice as long as the other. (The lengths will depend on the hemp's width) Fold each strand in half. Hold the two midpoints together and tie a loop with them. Hang the loop over a nail or tape it to a board. You should now have four strands; put the shorter two in the middle.

  2. Lay the left outside strand over the middle two strands (it should look like the number four), then under the right outside strand.

  3. Bring the outside right strand under the middle two strands and up through the loop of the four. Pull the ends of the outside strands tight. This is the basic knot. To continue, simply alternate the side from which you start the knot.

  4. To add a bead, slip it onto the middle two strands, then tie the knot. When your bracelet is done, slip a four-holed button onto the four strands (one strand in each hole), then knot each strand end and snip off any extra hemp.

That is how you make this bracelet hope you enjoyed.

Fondant Minions

posted Apr 13, 2014, 6:44 PM by Unknown user   [ updated Apr 13, 2014, 6:44 PM by JuliaV 74 ]

Supplies:
  • Yellow fondant
  • Blue fondant
  • Black fondant
  • Brown fondant 
  • Grey fondant 
  • White fondant
  • Pink fondant (optional)
How To Make It:

Tip: All pieces stick well with a tiny bit of water but don't put too much or you will have a sticky mess.
  1. For the basic body, make an egg shape with yellow fondant. Make it about 2 1/2 to 3 inches tall depending on desired size.
  2. Using blue fondant make two half circle shapes and using a dab of water attach them to the sides near the bottom of the body.
  3. Make a long thin rectangle from more blue fondant and wrap it from front to back. Again, attaching it with a bit of water.
  4. Roll out two snake shapes of blue fondant. Press them slightly to flatten them and attach them from the top corner of the front of the trousers to the top corner of the back of the trousers.
  5. Make a small half circle for the front pocket and using a toothpick make little stitching marks on the pocket and along the top of the trousers.
That is how you make fondant minions. Hope you enjoy!!!

Tie-Dye Cupcakes

posted Mar 5, 2014, 12:37 PM by Unknown user   [ updated Mar 5, 2014, 12:37 PM by JuliaV 74 ]

Today I am going to show you how to make these incredible cupcakes.

What you need

  • 1 pkg. (2-layer size) white cake mix
  • 1/4 cup dry Jell-O Lemon Jelly Powder (1/2 of 85-g pkg.)
  • 1/4 cup dry Jell-O Lime Jelly Powder (1/2 of 85-g pkg.)
  • 1/4 cup dry Jell-O Strawberry Jelly Powder (1/2 of 85-g pkg.)
  • 1-1/2 cups ready-to-spread vanilla frosting 

How To Make It

  1. Prepare cake batter as directed on package; divide evenly into 3 bowls.
  2. Stir different flavour dry jelly mix into batter in each bowl. 
  3.  Alternately spoon batters into 24 paper-lined muffin cups, adding about 2 Tbsp. of each batter to each cup. 
  4.  Bake as directed on package for cupcakes. 
  5.  Cool completely.Pipe frosting onto cupcakes.  

How To Put Frosting On

Insert desired decorating tip in pastry bag. Fold down top of pastry bag about halfway, forming a cuff. Spoon enough frosting into bag to fill halfway. Unfold cuffed top and twist bag until it meets level of frosting in bag. To pipe, hold bag firmly and squeeze from top of bag, keeping bag twisted to prevent frosting from leaking out from top of bag. If you don't have a pastry bag, you can use a resealable plastic bag instead. Spoon frosting into bag, then cut piece off one corner of bag. Twist top of bag as directed, then use to pipe frosting onto cupcakes.

How To Use The Remaining Dry Jelly Powder

Combine all leftover dry jelly powder in medium bowl. Add 1-1/2 cups boiling water; stir 2 min. until powders are completely dissolved. Stir in 1-1/2 cups cold water. Refrigerate several hours or until firm. Sprinkle jelly powder on to cupcakes.

That is how you make these Tie-Dye Cupcakes.
