Firs toff, let me just say I am very sorry about not posting for a while. Between a weekend with my husband camping and my favorite Aunt coming into town, I have had a lot to keep me busy.
Which also meant that a project I had started a while back has been neglected. A cake topper that will feature a little chibi mermaid cradling the head of of her sweet dragon friend.
Yay for me, I finally got the mermaid part done. Sorry I won’t be able to show you the dragon, but I was rather excited to finally get something posted after so long.
The foil in the back will serve as her support until she is baked. Why you ask? Because I was a super genius and forgot to add a bit of wire for support.
Before I bake her, i will need to do some lint clean up, but in this picture you can get a better look at her little tail.
I’m left stumped on the dragon. He needs to be more of a sea serpent, but what color would he be? Would he match his mermaid friend? Or would he be something different all together?
For this mermaid though, I kept the hair short, the eyes open, and decided to step away from the usual raven haired ladies that I normally end up making. She remind me of a snowflake, with the while hair and fluffy-ish tail, so I’ve decided to name her Eis (German word for Ice).
I’m excited to get to work on the dragon, but I will need to sleep on it. In the mean time…I will live you with a bit of happy hour from our camping trip (warning, the pictures are dark and blury. All I had on hand was a camera phone and it was already night time by the time we pulled out the alcohol):
Smore’s shots for your adult camp-out.
What you will need:
Chocolate flavored liquor (I’m using Hiram Walker’s Creme De Cacao)
Bailey’s Irish Creme (my God, is there anything this stuff CAN’T be mixed with?)
Marshmallow Flavored Liquor (I have Smirnoff’s Marshmallow Vodka…I have no clue if anyone else makes this kind of flavor, but if you can find, hey, go for it)
‘Double Shot’ show glass (those are the taller shot glasses)
I started with the chocolate:
Sorry about the awful picture. We had to use one of those propane lamps for light. Ignore the Kool-Aid in the back, my Husband is still a kid at heart…-_____-
Nest is the Bailey’s. I like adding this one next because it will give support to the next liquor, that way you can keep your drinks separated more easily. You don’t HAVE to do this, I just think it looks prettier.
Finally, top it off with your marshmallow. I learned after the first shot that you should use less Bailey’s than the other two liquors. Why? Because Bailey’s has a very overpowering flavor. You want just a tad to give it that graham cracker taste.
Isn’t that so pretty?
Have fun, remember to drink responsibly, and if you are underage…I do not by any means promote under age drinking. I am more than certain you can make this shot a virgin one, so get creative. Perhaps some chocolate syrup, a little bit of heavy cream, and a splash of melted marshmallow fluff? Yes…I think so.
And if you really want to pretty up your shots, you should rim the glasses with some graham cracker crumbs and a roasted marshmallow. Yum yum!
I’ll be back with more later!
