    I know it is a nasty habit, but I've taken up smoking :/

    I smoked a 13 pound briskit last friday and we will finally finish it up tomorrow. 13 pounds is a whole lot of briskit but it was oh so good

    Wedding Cake Pic

    DW did know about the marshmallow fondant but has never made it. She also learned that you can flavor the store bought stuff to make it a little better to stomach but I still don't care for it. She actually took a fondant and gum paste class through Michael's craft store that is taught by a...

    Wedding Cake Pic

    Emerald she would love to learn how to make homemade fondant. She can work with it but doesn't know how to make it. She made and worked with some modeling chocolate on a birthday cake this summer but that is just not the same as fondant.

After all was said and done she made 150 leaves and used about 120 on the cake. The cake was a white cake with antique white butter...

    Lymes Disease

    Thanks EarthWonderHerbals for that info and welcome to the group. I am sure you will be able to lend a great deal to the group.

    What are you DEHYDRATING today?

    I am dehydrating maple leaves :) You say what? My DW is making a one off three tiered wedding cake in 2 weeks with a fall theme. It will have over 100 hand made hand painted gum paste maple leaves and we found that the diluted gel coloring takes about 2 days to dry but just hours in the Excaliber.

    Rescued a pup this past weekend.........

    SKR8PN you are awsome. When I was younger and had fewer kids and more time I had hounds. I have always been a big softy when it comes to black and tans. Of all the breeds I have hunted they were the smartest and had the most mellow disposition and would hunt anything I put them on. I think...

    Want to come back on this forum after almost two years!

    pour olive oil in your hands and rub it around like you are washing your hands. The oils dilutes the pepper oils and will help float it away from the skin. repeat it if you need to. Do not use water it will only spread teh pepper oil around and make it worse.
