Last witch, I promise @croxovergoddess . So while I was thinking up a good design for Bridgett I was thinking of what a good Job for a modern witch would be. I got the idea for a ‘broom dancing’ witch, a play off of pole dancing. Sadly it really didn’t fit with Bridgett’s aesthetic so I made Bridgett a roommate, Marcia. Sultry broom dancer by night, punk coffee addict by day. She’s always 100% done with Bridgett’s bullshit.
“So tell me again why I am coming with you?” Nesta asks, as Cassian and her walk down the street towards the bakery. “I feel like picking out a wedding cake is a thing you should do with your fiancee.”
“She had a meeting and she says these kinds of things stress her out,” he replies with a shrug as he opens the door for her. Nesta glances around the bakery which looked like it was taken straight out of a bridal magazine.
“Ah the happy couple! You look very cute together!” an old lady says, as she walks around the counter. Neither of them have time to correct her because she ushers them both into another room. “I have already set out the a few samples. This is our chocolate chip cake with a chocolate mousse filling.”
Cassian takes a seat and eagerly takes a bite. “This one is amazing, here Nes take a bite,” he says, holding out the fork for him to take a bite. She leans over and takes a bite. She notices a flash in the corner of her eye and jumps back wiping the chocolate off of her face.
“Didn’t mean to startle you dear, we like to take a picture of every happy couple that visits us,” she says, putting the camera down and handing the next piece of cake to Cassian.
“Oh, we aren’t together. I am just his neighbor,” Nesta mumbles. The baker frowns and glances between the two of them.
“I have an eye for these kinds of things and you two are definitely going to be picking out a wedding cake of your own someday,” she replies. Nesta frowns and shifts uncomfortably in her seat.
“I think I like the chocolate one better,” Cassian says, completely oblivious to everything besides the cake.
“So which was your favorite?” Cassian asks as they walk back towards his car. He doesn’t wait for her to respond before saying, “My favorite was definitely the chocolate with the chocolate mousse.”
“Yeah, that was really good. So is that the winner?” Nesta asks.
“No, I think we will probably go with the lemon and vanilla,” he replies, and Nesta can hear the disappointment in his voice. “Claire doesn’t really have a sweet tooth. She likes fruity things more than chocolate.”
Nesta frowns, “How about both?” she suggests.
“Claire’s been freaking out about spending a lot of money on this so she wants to with as little as possible,” he says.
“How about you do what Rhys and Feyre did and have a small wedding with just close friends and family?” Nesta asks .
“I already suggested that but she wants to invite all of her old high school friends, “our” college friends, her coworkers, and her old sorority friends,” he replies, and Nesta can hear the frustration in his voice. “It’s fine, it’s supposed to be her day.”
Nesta stops walking which causes him to stop too. “That’s one of the stupidest things I have ever heard you say, Cassian. It’s your day too. You should be getting things both of you will enjoy. You shouldn’t sacrifice your happiness for hers.”
“Yes, I should. That’s what boyfriends do,” he says.
Nesta runs a hand through her hair as she thinks about what she’s about to say. “No, getting married is about compromising, your going to be spending the rest of your life with Claire. Do you never want to eat chocolate cake again?”
“Nes, just let it be, okay? I appreciate your help today but your not my therapist,” he says, and continues walking.
“Back to the drawing board,” Cassian exclaims, barging into Nesta’s apartment and dropping the “Giant Wedding Binder Full of Dread and Anxiety” onto her kitchen table.
Nesta, who had just crawled out of bed and was still in her pajamas, took another sip of her coffee before saying, “When I gave you the spare key to my apartment it was for emergencies not for you to barge into my apartment at-,” she pauses to look at the clock on her oven. “7:34 in the morning.”
“Well, Claire stopped by this morning and finally took a look at everything we did and went through what she did and didn’t like,” he announces, beginning to pace her kitchen.
She sets down her coffee and walks over to him, grabbing his arms to stop him from moving. “You need to calm down. Let’s start out with that she did like,” Nesta states, opening the binder up to the first page. “So what did she like?”
“Nothing,” he retorts, taking a seat at her table and running a hand through his hair. “I don’t think I can do this anymore, Nes,” he confides. Nesta feels guilty for the way her hopes rise at the thought of him calling it off. “I love her and I want to marry her but she just keep saying no to everything. Why is wedding planning so stressful?”
Nesta bites her lip before speaking, “It’s just a day. It’s one day and then you’ll have the rest of your lives. Besides, you have me here to help so it won’t be too bad.”
“I know, but don’t you think it’s a little weird that I am planning my wedding with my neighbor and not my future wife?” he spats, and Nesta is taken aback by the way he says neighbor. She knew they had their ruff patches but she thought they were at least friends. He must see it on her face because he quickly adds, “I didn’t mean it like that. I am glad I have your help.”
“It’s fine, it’s totally understandable that you would want your fiancee to help pan your wedding and not your neighbor. What you said was the truth,” she replies in her stoic defense she always gets when she feels like she’s losing something she held dearly. “What do you want to start with? I have two hours before work.”
She watches as he debates with himself mentally before saying, “Flowers. She wants roses.”
She nods her head and looks down at the flower cut outs they had. She didn’t want him to see the disappointment she had on her face that he didn’t fight for their friendship. Why would he? Once he was married she would probably never see him again.

Let’s be honest. Smoothie bowls are just fun. They kinda come about when you’re undecided if you want a smoothie or some fresh fruit. And then you get to add a bunch of cool superfood fixings. So you get the best of both worlds: a little smooth with a little bite. And though açaí bowls are my absolute favorite, the runner up is always a chocolate peanut butter bowl. Today I used @amazinggrass’s chocolate peanut butter protein superfood powder because not only does it have a ton of plant protein but lots of alkalizing greens. And it’s quick! A few frozen bananas, water and a packet. Easy peasy. And I just threw in a piece of avocado sourdough toast cuz, well, I’m hungry. What did YOU have for breakfast?! Cuz when I’m not eating I love talking about food. Lol. Talk to me.
Yo! Can I get a lil somethin' somethin' for a dragonkin who really likes to gnaw? I really like chocolate or fruity stuff. Caramel is also nice. I'll eat anything sweet, really!
Hi there dragony friend! It took me a little while to figure out what to whip up together for you! And I met a few hitches along the way! But the result is chewy and tasty! And kinda dragony in my opinion.
I made Chewy Caramel Gem bars!
Firstly I made gems from an easy microwave candy glass recipe here. X I flavored with Vanilla and colored it purple Added powdered sugar to them to keep them from being super sticky.
And because I’m a silly billy I forgot to get condensed milk or even cream for caramels so I made a quick alternative here since I have more eggs than brains clearly X3
1 cup Milk 2 Eggs 1 cup Brown Sugar 1 tsp Vanilla 2 tbsp Flour ½ tsp Baking Powder ¼ tsp Salt
Then with that squared away I began to make the caramel. Without a candy thermometer you’ll need some patience here. I boiled and boiled away the caramel until dropping a spoonful into cool water kept its shape until being taken out. My creation ended up being really oily here so mopping up excess with paper towel gingerly is suggested by me, be careful not to make a bigger mess since caramel is still sticky! X I poured melted chocolate chips over the drizzled portions once they had cooled to room temperature. Once cooled from the fridge I lifted them with a spatula and quickly flipped them and dusted the bottom of each bar with powder sugar to avoid excessive stickiness.
General taste and texture notes:
A pleasant chewy experience that when coupled with the crunch of the sugar glass is a nice even experience, something I’d say lives up to the expectations of “Gnawing” I hope you’d agree if you try these yourself. OwO The taste is overly vanilla-y, if you’re like me then this is completely fine as it’s my fave flavor, but if not I highly recommend flavoring the gems with something fruity of your liking to distract from the vanilla flavor the caramel has. For someone on a budget like myself I suggest adding drink flavor crystals to the gem mixture in moderation to add flavor. Aesthetically pleasing as a final product too!
- 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!!
🍰 Eren Would want cookies and cream. The indulging outside exterior of chocolate, with rough bits of cookie. And the extremely sweet, and loving interior of vanilla. Cause we all know that this boy is tough putting a fight, but his emotions are as innocent as vanilla.
🍰 Mikasa Black raspberry chocolate. Also known as black forest.~ This chic’s personality is just as pure and elegant, like a raspberry. And of course there’d be a touch of chocolate! The fruity mix with chocolate… IS FREAKIN POWERFUL! It’s really sweet, but strong.
🍰 Armin He perfectly describes the innocence and purity of vanilla. Yup. Plain ole vanilla. But come on, vanilla branches out to various flavors. Just like his knowledge and wisdom. All flavors would be lost without vanilla.
🍰 Jean Give this fella a popular flavor to fulfill his dreams people! Obviously chocolate. A flavor that causes a mix of emotions, so refined yet complicated. I’d bet 5 bucks, that he isn’t him without a snickers…
🍰 Sasha Carrot cake cupcake! Umm yea count her in!! When wouldn’t she be crazy for food. Especially something hella different to her taste buds. If the name is crazy who cares, this girl is down for the smell and taste. Crazy food, crazy people~…
🍰 Connie This guy is just as down as Sasha to try something out of the ordinary… But not TOO out of the ordinary~ A coconut cupcake is something he’d drool at the bakery for. It’s an innocent flavor, but when isn’t coco for locos~ coconut is totally a fun flavor.
🍰 Reiner Triple chocolate fudge yo. When hasn’t 3 kinds of chocolate just bring an explosion to your mouth. It’s freakin strong. Who cares, this guy is tough enough to show that a puny cupcake can’t be stronger than him. ~aside from that I bet Reiner is a low key chocolate lover.
🍰 Bertholt A cupcake that isn’t to sweet, with a bit of spice. Like ginger. A Ginger cupcake would totally suit him. You know he’s trying to keep a tough exterior, looking responsible. But he’s not all too sweet. This guy is comfy like a homemade spice.
Okay! So, I got pizza, popcorn, soda, vodka, tequila, beer, candy of the chocolate and fruity variety, lube, new sheets, plenty of detergent to wash said sheets, bacon and eggs for breakfast, every Star Wars from A New Hope to Rogue One, and every Harry Potter from Philosopher’s Stone to Deathly Hallows Pt. 2. So, I hope you weren’t thinking of leaving this apartment in the next month, because you can’t. Sorry.
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!!
