gummy bears

gummy bears are a great snack for pregnant women with major heartburn (for me anyway!)..check out these:

Topping the scales at 5 pounds, this mammoth mass of sugar comes in a variety of flavors and is the equivalent of 1,400 regular sized gummy bears! It’s BIGGER than a FOOTBALL!

With its monstrous size and at a mere 12,600 calories per gummy bear, it’s definitely not a bite-sized snack. Don’t fret- it comes in a plastic storage bag so you can take a bite or two and cover it back up for future snacking.

Hand-made in the USA. Measures 5.5 inches wide x 3.5 inches deep x 9” tall.

You’ve just got to see & taste it to believe it!!
perpetualkid.com

…and some interesting lighting/decor options made of gummy bears:


blog.makezine.com

and this one was featured on ohdeedoh last week:


a sweet chandelier made of approximately 5,000 hand-strung acrylic gummi bears. (A process which takes about two months to complete) Only ten will ever be made, and each one will be a little different. So we can quarantee each Candelier is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. A truly spectacular light.

Featured DIY – Cookie Monster Cupcake


Flickr photo by Nick^D

You’ll need:
Cupcakes
Frosting
Food coloring or icing color
Star tip and pastry bag
Cookies such as Mini Chips Ahoy or regular Chips Ahoy cut in half
Brown M&M’s
White disc candy such as white chocolate melts (use the flat side)

1. Cut a slit into the cupcake.

2. Insert cookie and start icing with a small star tip. The picture above is from a different cupcake and appears to be dyed coconut, which is also an option. Dyed coconut would give a shaggier look, but also remember that, if serving these at a party, coconut is a hit or miss. Lots of people don’t like it however, most children could care less! LOL

Tutorial photos by Cynthia Rae

3. Attach the brown M&M (pupils) to the white disks by either “gluing” together with a dab of frosting.

4. Stick the eyes down into the cupcake.

rainbow jello

ridiculously cool…i do not think i will be trying this one (it looks way too hard for me!) if you do try this recipe, please send me pictures! from adventuresofafoodslut.blogspot.com


*Small boxes of Jello, in rainbow colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, or whatever colors you want)
Cool whip, sour cream or plain yogurt
*Grease a pan with baking spray. Clear out a level spot in the refrigerator. Put the prepared pan in the refrigerator to chill.
*Add one packet of Jello to 1 cup of boiling water. Stir 2 to 3 minutes to dissolve completely. Pour 2/3 cup of the Jello into the prepared pan, and chill for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, add enough Cool Whip to the remaining Jello to make 2/3 cup. Stir to completely melt the Cool Whip. When first layer has set for 15 minutes, carefully pour Jello/Cool Whip mixture over it, and chill for 15 minutes. Repeat with remaining colors. Once all layers have been poured, allow to chill for at least 2 hours. Unmold onto a serving platter, if desired, or cut into squares and serve.

Note: The way I did this was to mix up the next color as soon as I poured the first layer of the previous color. For example, as soon as I poured the first layer of yellow jello, I heated up water and mixed up the green jello. Once it was dissolved, I poured 2/3 cup of the green jello into another measuring cup, then stirred in the Cool Whip to the rest of it. You need three measuring cups to do it this way. That gives it some time to cool down a little before it’s time to pour it into the pan, but not so much time that it begins to set up too much to pour.

This is a fairly time-consuming recipe, but it’s totally worth it at the end, especially if you have kids. You can do this in rainbow colors, or customize colors to your event — red and green for Christmas; orange and yellow for Thanksgiving; green, yellow and purple for Mardi Gras; purple and yellow for LSU tailgating. I went with rainbow colors today. The store was out of blue jello, so I bought some nasty little kids’ squeeze bottles of blue punch, and used one of those with unflavored gelatin for the blue layer. It worked.

You can make this in whatever shape pan you want. Bundt pans make a particularly attractive mold, or you can make it in a square or rectangular pan and then cut it into individual squares for serving.

a story for Father’s Day….

this cake made by Stacey (polka-dot-daze.blogspot.com) reminds me of my own husband.
not only do i love this cake, but i love the story that goes along with it….

“WHO BROKE THE LAPTOP”

“Oh no! Did you touch Daddy’s birthday cake Little Miss B?”
“Nope! I’m not sure. I’m sure I didn’t. I was just looking.”


“That’s the culprit there! Lurking behind the cake in pink. She was absolutely infatuated with it! She kept asking “does he have a nose?” So I put it up really really high!
I am having a play with fondant cakes at the moment, this one is my second attempt in order to get ready for all three of my kids birthdays which are six weeks within each other. I usually just buy their cakes but I feel up to the challenge this year. My husband loves banana cake and looked quite guttered when I told him I wanted to practice my mud cake, so I compromised with the bottom of the cake being banana and top piece mud. He also wasn’t sure about a guy asleep with his mouth open, on a sofa with a laptop on his lap…he thought a young fit footballer would have been more appropriate!

Happy Birthday to my darling husband! Thank you for being the awesome husband and father you are!”

stop by Stacey’s online stores babyboy.co.nz and babygirl.co.nz and her blog, polka-dot-daze.blogspot.com.
