This was a spontaneous collaboration with SpookiePookie, created for our father's (read: SpookiePookie and I are sisters) birthday. Our father doesn't actually *like* sushi, but what the hey, that's not the point. The point is, we made sushi out of jelly candies, and we made it for him. What more could you want from your offspring?
Base is homemade cake. Sashimi etc. is squished/mangled/reformed jelly citrus slices. Nori is rolled out black gummy something or other...I don't remember what. (It is *not* Scandinavian salty licorice. It was, after, meant to be eaten.) Rice is coconut shavings, chopsticks are chopsticks.
I made a piñata cookie with several little jam sandwich cookies. The recipe here: [link] How to do a piñata cookie here: [link] I had to add a bit more flour to make it roll-able to make shapes and it does crack, mostly weed (ba-dum tss!). But I covered that up with some royal icing (I used packaged royal icing). The cookies were so delicious and they didn't spread. Hard enough not to break but soft enough not to hurt your teeth. The candies in the middle are mini colored choc chips and some star sprinkles. The piñata cookie is VERY thick, so if I were you I would share it or eat it little by little by breaking it. The jam and cream for the little hearts are just already-made whipped frosting and regular jar jam. This is only showing how I did it, since its not clear enough to call it a tutorial.
This mudcake is seriously one of the most amazing cakes I have ever tasted (and this comes from someone who is pretty much sick of cakes). It really doesn't even need anything. Just bake it and take it out of the oven and sit right there on your kitchen floor eating it out of the cake tin with a spoon because it's all you ever need in life.
We seriously loved this cake. If I hadn't needed to use it for the candles and truffles (you'll get those on Day 9), we probably would have been consuming the whole thing hot as well.
I was told - "One of the most delicious desserts i have ever eaten".
How To Make Pina Colada - www.youtube.com/watch?v=kh3XS-… You can use store-bought Pomegranate Juice or squeeze your own fresh juice. I squeezed my own fresh juice. Here is a video on how to remove the seeds from the pomegranate fruit - www.youtube.com/watch?v=rnujQq… For assembly, all you need to do is place your glasses on a slant in bowls. One color at a time. For my pomergranate juice, i added one envelope of plain gelatin + Stevia as my sweetening agent (if you do not know what Stevia is, please Google it yourself).
This is a meringue. My mom makes them & they are super tasty, this one looked like it had a mouth so I though I'd take a picture of it. (Though before I planned on adding eyes to it for fun.) And now I can give you the recipe!!
RECIPE FOR MERINGUE You need: 4 egg whites 2 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C). Butter and flour a baking sheet. In a glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites until foamy using an electric mixer. Sprinkle in sugar a little at a time, while continuing to whip at medium speed. When the mixture becomes stiff and shiny like satin, stop mixing, and transfer the mixture to a large pastry bag. Pipe the meringue out onto the prepared baking sheet using a large round tip or star tip. Place the meringues in the oven and place a wooden spoon handle in the door to keep it from closing all the way. Bake for 3 hours, or until the meringues are dry, and can easily be removed from the pan. Allow cookies to cool completely before storing in an airtight container at room temperature.
This is definitely one of the most interesting and unusual dishes I've cooked. For one, I made my first meringue, and watching how drastically egg whites can transform was quite neat. For two, the cooking method for these cookies: forming the meringue, mixing in the chocolate chips, and then putting them in the oven and immediately turning it off and leaving them in there for several hours until they get crispy. They tasted soft of like chocolate chip cotton candy cookies. And people say you can't have low carb desserts. The original recipe for this was from Chef Emeril Lagasse, though I used sugar free chocolate chips.
Yey, for a long time I upload some photography! ^^ This morning I wanted to taste our turkish strawberry tea with some milk, and man it was delicious! The whole drink was just this pink: [link] I grabbed my SLR and took some shots, this ended up being my favourite :3 Retouched it a bit on GIMP and Picasa just for fun 8D

These are female eyes only, if someone isn't sure. Also, no telling me they're unequal, I don't care, these are sketches only, for practice Soooo tell me what do you think I might use some different ones for my characters, we will see Hope you likey ♥
You can use them as references if you wish to- I made them for my own practice, but I would be happy if someone would find them useful ^^ Remember- practice is always good ^^
