Some good..some ba - ABSOLUTELY DREADFUL!
Hello again..how are y'all? Hopefully you've been enjoying the sunshine at the lake, the beach, the cottage or the patio ... in real or miniature. I'm still plugging along trying to get done all the projects I foolishly committed to then promptly ignored till 2 months before our show. Well slowly but surely I'm making progress and as suggested some is good and some is downright ridiculous. I'll show you all and you tell me if I should just give up now :)
The assortment of goods I've made as options for my cart (we'll see what fits :)) I really like how the apple torte, banana custard puddings and cherry crumble in a cup turned out.
My pies generally turned out all right. Here is pumpkin and key lime, strawberry and blueberry..
Cherry turnovers, cherry chip shortbread and strawberry rhubarb love pie.
Peach is one of my favourites...
Macaroons, cupcakes, bunny and Venus shortbread with CAKE POPS!!! These were all fine..here's where I start to go wrong: Fruit and veggies! This is my first time trying all:
Oranges by LugArt...Peaches and papayas aren't too bad although they both crumbled..(low heat me thinks..) but the cucs and (choke) watermelon is horrible:
So a few steps forward and a few back..Oh how I wish I could go to a guild school or some real mini workshops but here in Edmonton Alberta Canada there is pretty much nothing. Sigh. How am I gonna get better??? Practise I guess. So I'm going to continue trying the f$#@ts and veggies and I'm hoping they will all look better compiled together on the cart..a bit of an illusion..I hope. Wish me luck and leave some advice or feedback, I need it as you can see...
Mini hugs and BIG love. xo
