How to make red velvet cupcakes out of Rainbow Dash
(No Rainbow Dashes were harmed in the making of these cupcakes)
This is a guide on how to make cupcakes that I think cupcakes made from pony flesh would look like. That is to say the cake itself is red, and the frosting is light blue, but not from pony hide or guts, from food coloring!! These can be made from scratch, and as such, do not have to be red if you are squeamish, but that is just the convention (though convention is with white frosting, not blue, and red sugar sprinkles, not rainbow, but shh!).
These are really yummy tasting and I recommend you make these, nao! This can also be used for a full on cake once you have the batter and frosting, but these instructions end in cupcakes, so sweet and tasty! This is also written for people who don't know baking very well, like me (even though I am somehow good at it). I also add some humor, so if you don't like that, why are you watching My Little Pony?

Butter - 50 grams
Sugar - 50 grams
½ an egg, beaten (Substitution: 1 tablespoon cornstarch)
A dash of vanilla essence (One milliliter should be sufficient.)
Cake Flour - 100 grams
Baking Powder - 1/3 Teaspoon (Optional; see recipe)
Cocoa Powder - 2 Teaspoons
Take the butter from the fridge and allow it to reach room temperature. Don't let it melt, just let it become soft enough to cream.
Flatten the butter in a bowl as best you can, then whisk it until fluffy. Don't use a whisk that's too large or the butter will go through the spaces and you'll have to fish it out with a knife. I really do know this one from experience.
Add half of the sugar and beat it into the butter, then add the other half and beat until creamy. It should change consistency as you beat it.

Vampires 101Vampires 101 (according to me)Vampires 1015 years ago in Profiles More Like This
What are Vampires?
Vampires are ancient immortal creatures that date back to the Greeks. Back then they were considered godly beings who were worshiped, but over time they were cast away and treated like demons. Essentially, that is what a Vampire is at the core: a demon. After surviving thousands of years, their existence was forgotten, and man dismissed the Vampire fantasy as a myth, they are misinterpreted by Today, Hollywood portrays them as a classic vicious monstrous demons with no soul, which is partially true. While they do retain their souls, Vampires are extremely deadly if they choose to be, but most live fairly normal lives within society. Some, however, have been known to behave as most would believe; like a monster.
Vampires are technically dead. They have no heartbeat, their skin is cold to the touch and none of their bodily organs work, except for their digestive system and their brain. Their lungs

Surviving the Storm.The thunder cracks above me,Surviving the Storm.2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
lighting ignites the sky, and
the rain pours it's tears upon me.
When I was child, I used to run away.
I always feared the storm.
I used to run to someone,
crying to be held, kept safe.
Too soon I realized, there was no one.
They all left me behind, found a way to escape the storm.
So as I spent my lonely time, I learned many things:
One, I couldn't hide from the rain.
No matter how far I traveled away,
or different roads I would take,
the rain followed me.
Two, if I kept running I'd waste my whole life away.
That's when I decided to dance in the rain.

How to make Muffin-Tin PiesHow to make Muffin-Tin Pies1 year ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
This is a really fun recipe I use for the Holidays and parties! ^-^
The steps listed below will make approximately one/one-and-a-half batches of twelve mini mixed-berry pies. Just use a regular muffin tin, and you can use paper muffin cups if you like, but if you don't I recommend spraying the ENTIRE muffin tin (not just the cups) before putting in the dough to help them come out easier.
The Oven will need to be pre-heated to 350 degrees before the pies can go in the oven.
2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons of salt
1/2 cup shortening (I generally use Crisco)
3/4 cup butter (chilled)
6 Tablespoons of ice water
Making the dough:
1.) Cut up butter into medium-sized cubes and return it to the refrigerator for later use.
2.) Cut up the shortening and drop in chunks into a bowl of ice water.
3.) In a separate bowl (large), combine flour, sugar and salt and then mix well.
3.) After they are chilled, remove the shortening from ice water, the but

Hades and Persephone (Part 5)Hades and Persephone (Part 5)1 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
PERSEPHONE SAT IN HER ROOM, glancing at the window. There was not much to look at. Hades had put her room away from the others, toward the wastelands of the Underworld, the empty lands, where there was nothing much besides black ground and pillars of smoke. She knew that if her room were at the other end of the palace, she would see fire and destruction.
Hades had said he would return in a day or two. That meant she still had a slight chance to get out. Not of the Underworld. She knew that was impossible. She wanted to at least see the gardens. If anything, they were still growing things, and they offered no ridicule or emotions.
She stood, walking over to her door, opening it so there was only a small crack. The large, black dog outside of her door was sleeping soundly, even snoring slightly. The snore was deep and ragged, more like a growl with each inhale.
Persephone slid out of her door, shutting the door softly. The dog did not stir.
She continued her w

The reason for sleepless nights: Him.
Three little words not yet spoken.
Sighs start to replace her answers.
Thoughtful silence... "Only time will tell."
Shuddering whenever she remembers his smell.
His blue eyes speak to mine.
His kiss silences my loudest thoughts.
He's the only one for me.
Describing my feelings: "love" isn't enough.
My hearts bursts with her love.
If love killed, I'd be dead.
To be resurrected as your angel.

"And forever you will be mine."
"Will you love me?"

This one is a bit of a no-brainer really. Make a mind map or some bullet points of all of the things you want to include in your project.
