BurdaStyle Book – Nov.1st 2011

September 13, 2011

My contribution to this book is the coat, the last one on the right (you have seem the details in a previous post).

I believe this book can be the start of a beautiful feminine wardrobe: it has dresses, skirts, blouses, coats and accessories, all in classic lasting style.

Twisted Green Dress

September 12, 2011

One of the pending pictures for a dress I have sewn a while ago.

At a baby shower with my friend Oana (7+months)

I thought this is a very similar design with Oana’s purple dress, with the twisted knot, and really like how the colors go together.

Baby Shower Season

September 12, 2011

It is baby shower season around here…teddy bears, pink elephants and baby gators.

Sewing, crocheting, stuffing, cooking, and of course cakes and fondant decorations.

Some of the pattern links:

Teddy bears are made of marzipan (just mix almonds with powdered sugar and a bit of water). The teddy bear cake flavor is almonds with dark chocolate and cayenne pepper. It was a little hot, received very interesting comments related to the flavor – is it with alcohol?! is it amaretto? anyway, I’ll use less cayenne next time

Pink elephants are made out of home made fondant (melted marshmallows with powdered sugar and peppermint extract – tastes like bubble gum). The cake is made out of yogurt with heavy whipping cream, tart cherries with white chocolate and the cake batter was dark chocolate. The insides of the cake is with dots, as the cream fillings are layered concentric circles.

Green alligators are made out of Wilton fondant. The cake flavor was Kiwi Lime (kiwi and key lime peel and juice), yogurt and cream of course. The kiwi prevents gelatin from setting, so I will never mix kiwi fruit with any milk based product.

Till next time!
