Twit Knit/Puppy Update

Hello :)

I have some very exciting pictures today but I MUST WARN YOU... they are so cute you might throw up.

It's officially only 10 DAYS UNTILL I GET THE PUPPY! We are getting a girl now (slight change of plans) and today me and my mum went shopping and bought her little bed, food bowl, toys, etc. I'm so excited I have started dreaming about her and waking up and feeling so sad that she isn't here :(

We went to visit her a few weeks ago and are going back this thursday but her lovely owner sent us these pictures today. Get ready...





10 days until the puppy also means I have to finish my twit knit project pretty quickly!! I found some BEAUTIFUL silky wool which I am doing my next square out of so that's very exciting.

I was trying to think of what time would be good to end the project on and although I don't know much about what it means I think the fourth of July would be a good day to say is the end. It's independence day so it could indicate us knitters becoming 'Independent' from our projects. If you are part of the Twit Knit Club tell me if you think this would be a good day to end. We could all send in all our pictures of our finished projects and have a little 'Twitter Celebration'

Here are the latest amazing Twit Knit Photos.

X-Rated Blog Post!

IF YOU ARE UNDER 12... LOOK AWAY!


Ok fine so its not that rude but it was rude enough to shock my granny a lot! This is my 'Bra Cake, I made it this weekend for my brothers 14 year old birthday and lets just say he went bright red and laughed a lot. I was trying to decide what cake to make him and the obvious decisions were rolling around in my head - guitar, train, heart, smiley face. They all seemed far to childish for a 14 year old boy. Then suddenly it hit me... A BRA!



I'd like to say it was super easy to make and only took half an hour but it was actually very hard. I started the night before and made two dome shaped cakes in a ceramic bowl, the left boob is a very yummy choclate with cherry icing and the right boob is lemon with lemon curd icing. I then froze them overnight so they would be easier to ice. I used skin coloured fondant icing (who knew) and a red tube of icing to make what I hope looks like a black lacy bra.



All in all i was pretty proud of the x rated cake and I think my brother really liked it, although being a fourteen year old boy he just laughed and then scoffed the lemon boob in record time.


I hope everyone had a lovely weekend and I will be doing a Twit Knit update tomorrow.

Love Scarlett.
Battenburg Love.

Now, I know this may look like I'm blogging pictures of a shop bought Battenberg but.. I MADE IT! ok fine so it doesn't look quite proffesional enough to come from a shop but I am so pleased with it I can't stop looking at the pictures (it was eaten within 10 seconds of completion) and I have already planned to make a purple Battenberg next.

Battenberg is one of my all time favourite cakes and after a week of pretty intense baking (2 trifles, a bread and butter pudding and some sticky toffee rice crispie squares), this was my finishing piece and it came out so well.

It was pretty tricky to get right and there were loads of times I thought it had gone completly wrong, the pink cake came out of the oven COMPLETELY brown and it was only when I cut into it that I found the beautiful pink middle.

If anyone else feels like giving it ago I found the recipe online and if you google 'Battenberg Recipes' you can find some pretty good ones (I used the BBC good food one)






And here are some new pictures of the Twit Knit Clubs AMAZING projects so far.
