Imbolc Ritual Cake Recipe

This is similar to a Lemmon Poppycake. I like to make them in my cupcake pan. This will make 12 muffins/cupcakes.



Imbolc Ritual Cake
13/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tbs. poppyseeds
1 tbs. grated lemon peel
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tbs. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
powdered sugar 

This is all done in one pan, so clean up is a breeze! Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix flour, sugar, poppyseeds, baking soda, and salt with a fork in an ungreased 9"x9"x2" baking pan. Stir in the remaining ingredients, except the powdered sugar. Bake 35-40 (22-26 in cupcake/muffin pan) minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean, and the top is golden brown. Remove from oven and cool. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Makes 8 servings.  12 cupcakes/Muffins

Blue Fairy Cosplay

So my daughter said she wanted to be a fairy for Tex. Ren Fair this year. We will be going the weekend of 1001 Dreams. I was and am okay with what she wanted. So the next step was what type of fairy. I made her do some research and told her we should come up with an original type. So for two weeks she poured over flower books, insect books, elemental books, and a few fay encyclepedias. She finally chose a type of butterfly it is local to our area.


Limenitis arthemis

The Limenitis arthemis also known as Red-Spotted Purple or White Admiral. So we are basing her colors of the one pictured above the Red-Spotted Purple.
So the following is the Work in Progress, we are finally at painting of her wings stage and then it will be time for a photo shoot of all the completed pices. We also are making a prop weapon based of a Sewing needle for her.
Enjoy the pics:
