Let’s play a game.
Pick 2 (or more) superheroes or any fictional character.
The first is someone you inspire to be and the second is someone you feel reflects you the most.
For me, I inspire to be Wonder woman. Nice, kind and gentle but also strong, fierce and always focused. Even when fighting crime at night with no apparent need for any sleep.
How Ever, considering my frizzy hairstyle and the black circles under my eyes I would say Beetlejuice would be best to describe me.
Oh, let’s not forget Darth Vader as I walk around the house yelling “Emily I am your mother” spreading threats that forever will be just threats.
Beetle Juice, Beetle Juice, Beetle Juice.
I kept thinking as I stared at myself in the mirror the morning after Emily’s 7th birthday party. Actually, I should say the morning of the birthday party.
You see, after her elaborated 6th birthday party, I decided that I am going to make things easy and will just have a small birthday party the following year.
So this year I arranged a SLEEPOVER party.
The theme was Equestria Girls (My Little Pony) with Rainbow Dash being the star. I got so caught up in Emily’s excitement and requests and ended up planning, executing and guiding the activities, dance party, sleeping layout and movie time.
AND I set up a sweets table with 11 different kinds of candies, chocolates, and 3 kinds cookies PLUS the birthday cake. All rainbow colors.
I mean what could be easier than feeding seven 7 o.y girls with sugar and keep them overnight…?
Well, for starters fighting evil in the middle of the night while wearing a tiny skirt and knee-high boots sounds much much easier.
You think I am full of it? Then ask Wonder Woman (or any other superheroes) why she has no kids!
SO! I may not be Wonder Woman and always grace my Superman with a smile, (who I had as reinforcement ?). But I am a survivor…I survived THE SLEEPOVER. (and so did the girls).
Hi, Stephen King….here’s an idea for your next top seller.
Rainbow Dash Striped Cake and Fondant Cut Out
- Crumb Coat your cake with white buttercream. Let chill for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
- Divide the leftover buttercream and color each part with the colors of your liking. Place in piping bags. Pipe stripes around the cake, covering a third of the cake with each color.
- Pipe the remaining buttercream on top of the cake and using a small spatula, smooth the buttercream surface.
- Using a metal scraper smooth the sides of the cake to blend the colors together.
- Decorate the cake with your choice of accents.
1. Roll out the light blue fondant about 1/4″ thick, and place the paper print.
2, 3. Using a fondant knife cut out the main head shape.
4. Repeat steps 1 and two with the rest of the face and features.
5. (Optional) Place each cut out on the paper print to get a better look at the progress.
6,7 Brush Edible glue on each piece and glue the face features excluding the eyes.
8. Using a pencil lightly draw the face lines, glue the eyes.
9. Using a thin brush trace the face lines and Jacket you drew with the pencil with royal blue coloring. Add eyelashes with black coloring.
And the possibilities are endless! ? Here is another cake I made using the same method.
