It’s the second week of our “See the wood for the trees” challenge over at Crafty Boots. I have continued with my Christmas theme for this challenge and created a quick and simple card:
The jar stamp is from Red Lead and I’ve used one of Darkroom Door’s Stitched Christmas trees. The words are from a stamp by Karen Hayselden for Stampotique. I added some blobs of stickles for a snow globe effect.
This weekend we had a small family get together to celebratemy eldest son’s birthday. At his request I cooked a proper English Sunday lunch – roast beef and all the trimmings of course! He didn’t have a special pudding request and I was given free rein. He’d already had a cake on his actual birthday so I decided to take the opportunity to try out something that had been in my head for quite some time.
These little edible snow globes were super simple to make. I got the2-part acrylic baubles from Ebay and they are 100cm in diameter. The dessert itself is a chocolate mousse mixed with chunks of chocolate sponge, white and milk chocolate chips and some dollops of chocolate sauce. The snowy topping is a white chocolate cheesecake. I did make some chocolate Christmas trees and snowmen but, at the last minute, opted to use Christmas cake decorations instead. As you might expect there is also a sprinkling of edible glitter!
Thanks for buzzing by.
