While I was sewing this week, I was watching a Craftsy class. This “Irish Whisky Cake” looked easy and fast and pretty spectacular. So I gave it a try.
Sure enough, it was as easy as the class video said it would be! Darned if I don’t love my premium membership. I can watch any class at any time. And while I don’t have a lot of time to watch the classes, they certainly are fun to flip through until I find one like this, that inspires me.
Since the cake is a combination of coffee and chocolate, I thought I’d use Kahlua instead of Whisky for the whipped cream. Sure enough, it tasted pretty good. I didn’t have the white chocolate and dark chocolate bars the curls called for, so I substituted your basic Hershey’s Milk chocolate and the curls came out just fine. I did small ones using my potato peeler. I’m nothing if not flexible when it comes to chocolate!
So whether watch one class, or become a premium member, Craftsy will fill up your afternoon with fun!
Thinking about getting a new accuquilt machine or already have one? Either way, there are inspiring projects and ideas coming from this March 29th online event. There will be special discount promotions and chances to win prizes from Andover. Have fun!
Oh my. Inspiration finally STRUCK! Quite a long time ago, actually a very long time ago, I purchased some 100% cotton blank dishtowels. Well I finally figured out what I wanted to do with them. They are going to be gifts, and hopefully useful gifts (the best kind).
Scrolling through the zillions of images on Cricut Access, I found a few that resonated and were just right for these irreverent dishtowels. Gosh how I love my Cricut Maker machine! It makes things easy and professional looking. Win-win! Cool, right?
Head over to Cricut and see what is happening. Get out there and do some of your own crafty projects!
PS My next project is going to involve fusible ink. Cricut has had this product out for awhile, and now may be the time for me to jump in. 30% off fusible ink until March 5, 2022. Just in case you are headed that direction as well.
I’ve had my Cricut Maker for about 3 years now and I love it. Although I don’t use it as much as I’d like, it’s there waiting for me when the mood strikes. Which is usually at random times throughout the year.
Right now I’m cutting up old cards and repurposing them into new cards. It’s fun, thrifty, and feels like it could be good for the environment. Maybe. Not sure. But it’s fun!
Cricut.com is offering free shipping on orders $99+. Use promo code SHIPFEB or FEBSHIP through 2/28. But the real deal is this sale also features $150 off the Maker, which is the machine I use. Love it! Worth it!
