Pro-Tip #34: Buy Coasters That Actually Absorb

Coasters are seen as a really adult purchase, and probably the cheapest one you can make. You use them under your drinks to protect the furniture you didn’t garbage pick or buy on clearance at the local supermarket. I fully endorse the purchase of coasters, they’re useful and they have all kinds of art options that can make fun little accents to your decor. 

But here’s the thing: lots of coasters are really terrible at what they do. Don’t just get a little square with a cute design and think that’s it, because most of those will either get ruined by moisture (why) or block out so much moisture that the liquid runs all over your table anyway. Do yourself a favor and spend a few extra dollars and buy thirsty stone (or any similar brand) coasters. They look great and actually absorb the moisture without compromising your great woodwork. And how adult will you feel when you buy not just coasters, but good coasters? Your parents might even be envious.

I don’t really understand the obsession with hickeys but someone messaged me asking for a post about them so here are the links I found! Not too many but they are interesting so hope the anon likes them :)

DIY: Cupcake Bouquet

For the cupcakes, I used Cupcake Project’s ultimate vanilla cupcake and vanilla bean buttercream (I substituted vanilla extract for bean in the frosting so it wouldn’t have flecks in it), which were met with rave reviews:

Seriously, I can’t recommend these recipes enough: the cake is fluffy with a nice vanilla flavor and the buttercream frosting pipes perfectly and tastes like melted vanilla ice cream.

YOU WILL NEED:

Materials:

  • Cupcakes
  • Frosting 
  • Piping bag
  • Green tissue paper
  • Clear tape
  • Flower pot
  • Styrofoam ball
  • Toothpicks.

All of these things are available online or at craft stores such as Michael’s (that’s where I found the adorable polka dot flower pot).

             

Bake cupcakes and make buttercream frosting. To pipe a cupcake rose, fit a piping bag with a 1M tip and fill with room temperature frosting. To pipe a rose, hold the piping bag perpendicular to the surface and start in the center of the cupcake. Gently squeeze the bag and pipe frosting around in a spiral until you reach the outer edge, then let go. 

Place cupcakes in fridge while you prepare the styrofoam so the frosting becomes firm.

Place styrofoam ball into flower pot. Place two toothpicks in each area where you want a cupcake.Note: around the sides, insert toothpicks at 45° angle, otherwise cupcakes will fall off after a while.

Slide a cupcake onto each pair of toothpicks, adjusting toothpicks as needed to place cupcakes close together. Cover as much of the styrofoam as you can. (My styrofoam ball had a 5″ diameter and fit 10 cupcakes.)

Cut green tissue paper into small strips.

Fold strips into accordions.

Pinch the bottom of the accordion fold

Place a piece of clear tape at the pinched part of the tissue paper and stick it to the exposed styrofoam in between the cupcakes. Make more tissue paper “leaves” until you cover all the uncovered areas.

Vegetable Spiral Mini Tarts

Inspired by this Food Republic post and this post from Baked to the Roots, I made these vegetable mini tarts with a miso-walnut filling:

I can easily eat about 5 or 6 of these things by myself because they’re pretty addictive: the savory creamy filling works really well with the tender textures and earthy flavors of the zucchini, carrot, and eggplant swirls.

As for the tart shells, I used refrigerated pie crusts for recipe writing simplicity. They’re really just vessels for carrying the tart innards anyways so the brand and pastry type is not that important. Feel free to use a substitute, like a vegan pie dough (if you want to veganize it), or something fancy like a homemade pâte brisée (if you want to show off). If you want to be an overachiever, make your own pâte feuilletée.
