Hello! How are you? Do anything fun over the summer?
Over the summer, I went to my Bubbie’s house. We had a ton of fun celebrating her birthday- even if I got food poisoning!
We started off my trip with celebrating Father’s day and we enjoyed a giant banana split with my grandfather in LA.
My grandpa collects chips and likes to play blackjack, so this year for his birthday I made him a poker table-themed fondant cake with a royal flush, some chips and dice on it.
It was a ton of fun to make. It took a while, everything was hand made, including the cards but it was so worth it.
Here’s the close-up:
Happy Birthday Grandpa!
For my Pheonix Comicon cosplay, I didn’t want to spend $20+ on a shirt I was sure I could make. So, instead, I painted the shirt design and this is how I did it:
Hello! I had a ton of fun making my abbadon cosplay. It all started with finding my leather jacket… 😉
I made my own The Devil Made Me Do It shirt and made instructions that you can find here but otherwise you can buy the shirt nearly anywhere. For the costume, I wore the shirt, a pair of my black skinny jeans, my black Doc Martens, a leather jacket and a lot of makeup. I have naturally red hair, so all I did was put it into a fancy up-do. As for the makeup, I used this video as my guide but I used a cheaper way that wouldn’t last as long. The person in the video used liquid latex for her neck, while I used Elmer’s glue and toilet paper.
This year was my second year doing Pheonix Comicon, and it was brilliant. I went with my family and not only did we buy a ton, but we people watched and saw many fantabulous costumes.
For Salem’s party, we also had some fun treats like these Minnie and Mickey Oreo Pops as well as Bow Pasta Salad and later, the Minnie and Mickey Fondant Cakes.
These pops were super easy in theory, but a little harder to actually make. They tasted delightful though.
Hello! This pasta salad is bright pink and with bow pasta, to fit into Salem’s Minnie Bowtique Party. It is fairly simple to make colorful pasta, just boil water and add food coloring rightafter dumping the pasta in. The pasta becomes soft as it absorbs the boiling water, so if the water is blue, youll have blue pasta. For Salem, we made the water pink and added the bow-shaped pasta and got this beautiful result. To make the pasta salad, we added some poppy seed dressing, green onion, olives, corn, peas and onions and mixed it together. All in all, the guests were impressed with this easy, delicious pasta salad. We also served Minnie and Mickey Fondant Cakes and Minnie and Mickey Oreo Pops.
Other ideas could be:
- Boiling three pots of water and splitting the spaghetti into the pots with different colors, then mixing them together to creat a tricolored spaghetti dish.
- Adding a bit of blue food coloring to Macaroni and Cheese to create a green-blue result.
- Using the color and pasta type for a themed festive event and serving pasta or pasta salad.
