ballard, deer, silicone molding diy style, collage and cake

leff and i needed to run some errands in ballard yesterday. on the way to fred meyer we saw some tiny trees

and some fuzzy hats.

we also had coffee at cafe moose

where i had the huevos con nopalitos (a.k.a. eggs with cactus). deeeeee-licious! (the coffee is quite nice too.)

after a brief stop at both the library (for worldchanging and i have chosen to stay and fight) and cookies for birds and bee cutters, we returned home. and then i took photos of these deer.

we also made a silicone mold for leff's entry in the seattle edible book festival. isn't this the grossest picture? (i assure you, it's silicone. pervert.)

here's a tutorial in case you'd like to make your own mold. it's a fast and inexpensive way to get a really detailed mold and i can't recommend it enough! (my sculpture prof, greely myatt, taught me the technique. thanks, greely!!)

i also started working on my edible book entry. here's part of it...4 cups of cake!!

i love baking in pyrex.

it took almost 2 hours for the cake to set so in my spare time between checking the oven, i knocked out a collage for scrapateria.

the theme was "japan". and, yes, i love grape pocky!!

today i have to do a lot of cleaning and packing for leff any my trip to oregon on monday. tomorrow!!! so if you don't hear from me for a few days, it's because i'm out of town without internet access. i promise you this though, i WILL have a ton of photos of goonies sites when i get back!!!
