- Clay tools such as a needle tool, toothpick, toothbrush, blade, ball tool, etc…
- Round cookie cutter
- Eye pin, jump ring, cell phone strap
- Pasta machine or clay roller
- Embellishments such as silicone, whipple cream, glitter, clay sprinkles, micro beads, cane slices, puffy paint, etc…
- Glaze of your choice, paint brush
Step 1 & 2
Pick out what two colors you would like to use and condition your clay. Once you get it nice and soft either roll it out with a clay roller or run it threw a pasta machine. You want the clay to be between 1/8 and ¼ of an inch, depending on the style your going for. Once you get smooth sheets of clay, take your round cookie cutter (or whatever shape you’d like to use) and cut out two circles of one color and one circle of the other color. You will also need to roll out a pretty big sheet of really thin clay to act as ‘fondant.’ You want this to be about four inches round or so. After you get them cut out , stack them together, single color in the middle and other color on top and bottom. Smooth out any imperfections.
After you are satisfied with the way your layers look, take the layer of ‘fondant’ and smooth over top of the cake making sure to get the top and the sides. Cut off any access clay at the bottom.
Take your blade and cut out however many slices you wish. You should be able to get six to twelve slices, depending on how big or small you want them. After you get your slices cut out you want to insert your eye pin to the top of each slice.
Step 5 & 6
For the middle part, you can either take your needle tool and poke lots and lots of tiny little holes, to give the illusion of it looking like ‘mousse,’ you can leave it smooth, or you can make it look like ‘cake’ by taking your needle tool and picking at the clay in a circular motion. For the top and bottom layers, you can do the same thing as the middle or do something different.
Once you texture all of your cakes, and they look the way you want them to look, you want to bake them in the oven for fifteen minutes at 275 degrees,
After your slices have cooled completely, you can either glaze your cake first and then add the embellishments or add the embellishments and then glaze it, or if you want a more realistic look, dont glaze the cake but just the ‘icing’ and toppings. After everything has dried you can use your pliers to open your jump rings to add them to your charm along with your cell phone strap.
You can use these as cell phone charms, key chains, zipper pulls, wine markers and lots more!!
French fries. Like, if a meal at a restaurant doesn’t come with a side of french fries, I literally will not get it.
🍭 - Favorite Candy?
It used to be skittles, but lately they’ve been giving me mad fuckin acid reflux. But overall I like any fruity candy over chocolate.
🍇 - Favorite fruits?
Apples and grapes are pretty much the only healthy things I eat, so those two.
🚘 - Dream car(s)?
I’m not a big car guy, but I really like the look of the Jeep renegade that bruce drives in BvS. Right now I have a 2004 Mazda tribute and I love the damn thing, so I would probably say my dream car is the awesome one I have now :-)

One of the high points of Christmas is getting Jeni DeFeo’s annual box of holiday cookies! Every year, Jeni and her kids bake and send numbered and labeled bags full of assorted cookies with a complete “menu” enclosed. This year, there were 14 different cookies on the list, including a special secret bag of “adult cookies”.
I’m still making my way through them, but so far, as a breakfast cereal fan, these two have been my favorite…the Fruity Pebbles sugar cookies, and Elie’s Peanut Butter Cap’n Crunch, Marshmallow & White Chocolate Bar!
Folks might remember that I posted about Elie’s Cap’n Crunch Bar last year, and as thanks for doing so, Ellie send me an extra bag of them in this box!!
Today is Pancake Day! We’ve been thinking about our favourite pancake fillings and this is our list of what we think are the best.
Bacon and Maple Syrup Fluffy American-style pancakes topped with crispy bacon and sticky maple syrup create the perfect balance of sweet and salty.
Banoffee Fresh bananas drizzled with toffee sauce.. heaven!
Lemon and Sugar A British pancake day classic! You can’t go wrong!
Jam Choose your preserve of choice, add a generous spoonful to your pancake and top with fresh fruits and nuts, we love this fruity filling!
Oreo Chocolate pancakes, stacked with layers and layers of whipped cream… drizzle with chocolate sauce and crumbled Oreo cookies, and you’ve got a mountain of chocolate that’s not for the faint hearted!
Salted Caramel and Pretzel Salted caramel is very trendy right now, and it’s not hard to see why! Add some vanilla ice cream, sit back and enjoy the delicious team of salt and sweetness.
shameful thing i did in yogurtland: i couldnt decide between a fruity sorbet and chocolate so i got a bowl of chocolate stuff, ate it, pretended to receive a phone call from a friend and said loudly “yeah what do you want?” and then got a bowl of fruity sorbet to-go
