Notes on a Saturday night

1) Note to self - fondant may be edible clay but air dry clay is not toxic fondant. Since the cake we're doing is made from cake blanks we decided to go with sculpy flowers and air dry clay for the cake covering. The sculpy worked wonderfully the clay not so much. It just doesn't act like fondant does. We couldn't roll it etc. We got it to work but it was much more effort than we wanted to do and we won't know until tomorrow if it actually turns white enough or if we should plan on hitting it with spray paint - something I DON'T want to do since I want to give it to Johanna complete on Monday.

2) Did the weekly shopping. While we were at AC Moore getting stuff for the cake I decided to get a knitting stitch counter which we adapted so that it would hang from a cord around my neck. Not that I'm taking up knitting but to keep track of the cough drops. Today's count? 22

3) Had a nice dinner at home with the 'rents who are up for the weekend. Tomorrow morning we're getting together with Bro's family for breakfast before the 'rents head home.

4) Okay tired now - have been running all day. Tomorrow is another busy day. Nighters

When you die, you should donate your body to science so they can see just how red your innards are....

Fondant might technically be edible, but it is HARDLY palatable. Pretty, but YUCK!

Our solution to fondant is to roll it as thin as possible (much thinner than you see on the food network) and then advise people to eat around the fondant if it's still offensive.

Right now I'm really regreting that I ever came up with the clay idea - the clay has cracked as it dried and we're now trying to figure out what plan B is - either filling it with spackle after it finishes drying or pulling it all of, or punting and figuring out another solution.

It doesn't help that we are all tired, hot and cranky

could you fill and smooth it with plasticine?

Can I metaquote this:
"Note to self - fondant may be edible clay but air dry clay is not toxic fondant."

I'd be honored ;) I've never been meta quoted before.

Edited: made the post public since I know people like links for metaquotes.
