Plastic Icing

Last weekend I decided to attempt this plastic icing lark . Here is my impressions of working with this stuff.
1. It very quickly gets sticky and icky to work with
2. Don’t give it to the kids to play with- see point one
3. Be patient with the stuff- put it to side if it gets too sticky and do something else.
4. Putting it in the fridge does not let it set quicker- just give the stuff some time.
5. Don’t use fresh cake- it crumbles while you are working with it- use a day old cake at least.
5. It’s difficult to mould- see my pics
6. You need to tidy the stuff up afterwards- wipe the icing sugar of- it doesn’t just dust of- unless I’m doing something wrong.

I'm going to retry it this weekend- wish me luck- lol

Here is a pic of my attempts

Four Foods on Friday

Four Foods On Friday 41

And now for something completely different.
#1. If you could travel anywhere to have a meal, where would you want to go and what would you want to eat.
Ooh Definatley go down to the Cape and eat at Haute Cabriere. It is built into the mountainside with a beautifull view of the valley- also a view of the underground cellar.
#2. When you go away do you make your own meals or eat out?
We make our own mostly-but once or twice like to go out eating- it's easier with the kids
#3. While traveling if you have to stop for a meal do you go in or do you go through the drive thru and eat in the car?
We pack a picnic- don like the takeaway meals when travelling
#4. Share a recipe or food related trip for people making a long trip by car.
It's a whole event when we go for a long trip . We pack
Sandwiches,meatballs,cold chicken,juices,water,fruit and boiled eggs. It looks like the great trek- lol

Other Worlds August 7, 2008

Suggested by Miko
Are there any particular worlds in books where you’d like to live?
Or where you certainly would NOT want to live?
What about authors? If you were a character, who would you trust to write your life?
(This came to me when reviewing a Jonathan Carroll book - I’m not sure I’d like to live in the worlds of his books.)

I wouldn't like to live in a world where women is not seen as equal- I would have hated living in the 18th century-al those corsets and not voting -blegh- and scratchy underwear

I dont know what I was thinking

but I started to Gym again- the first time in years.
Clearly Andrew thinks the same- when I told him I went to gym he wanted to see my muscles- and then packed up laughing at my efforts.
Little upstart-lol
