I don’t even
i give up
There is not a lot I miss about living in northwest Florida (aka lower Alabama). Once in a blue moon I miss the beach, not very often being ginger and all. I miss some friends and family. But what I really miss is being 2-3 hours from New Orleans and 45 minutes from Mobile for Mardi Gras. Up here people don’t even know what a King Cakes is so I took it upon myself in my busy schedule to come up with a fast way to make one of the things I miss so much.
First I started out with these ingredients, the babies will melt in the oven so I’ll explain what I did with them further down the list:
That is 3 cans of Pillsbury cinnabon cinnamon rolls, a jar of sprinkles from walmart that includes purple, green, yellow, and pink, and a pack of mini plastic babies from the baby shower party section.
First thing I did was open up each can, mush all the dough together and then roll it out into one long skinny “rope”
Next I took the 3 ropes and braided them together then connected the ends and mushed them together and placed it in the pan.
For baking I initially followed the directions on the package but realized later that I should have turned down the oven a tad and baked it for longer.
After letting it cool a bit I injected a baby down between some of the strands and then used the 3 packages of icing that come in the cinnamon roll cans to ice this beast:
Finally I sprinkled it with purple gold and green goodness alternating around the cake.
I would have loved to surround it with some mardi gras beads but there you have it, a simple homemade king cake. Laissez Le Bon Temps Roulet!
So I was reading up on Avengers trivia and apparently RDJ kept food hidden all over this set and they couldn’t find where it was so they just kinda let him continue doing it. So that’s his actual food he’s offering and whenever he’s eating in a scene, it’s not scripted. He was just hungry.
RDJ magic. His random shit makes a movie perfect.
this is hilarious.
OK so it’s getting cold here and I can’t find really THICK knee high socks anywhere to save my life. So, I decided to try making some of my own. Any more I make after this will be thicker but I had this sweater from target that I haven’t worn in at least 2 years… so I killed it…
Phase 1: I put my little feets through the arms to make sure they were as long as I wanted, then cut around the shoulder seam on the outside so that the arm didn’t fall apart on me.
Phase 2: I cut around my foot on the body of the sweater to create the bottom. Sorry I didn’t take a pic of that but it’s like 40 degrees here and I’m in the basement and I had to put some damn socks on.
Phase 3: I turned the sleeve inside out and flipped the bottom over and sewed a zigzag stitch all the way around.
Phase 4: I tried them on to make sure they fit OK before cutting off all the extra material then, flipped them bitches right side out and my feets are warm and cozy!
