The Wedding Project

The inspiration for this wedding invitation is this pocket wedding invitation..

I made a few modification because I find it too plain.  I got these "Martha Stewart Wild Flowers Punch All Around" at Micheals.  This set comes with two punch outs:  a corner punch out and a straight punch out.  I used the corner wild flower punch out to achieve the lace look on the corners of the invitation.  I got the invitation, monogram stickers, and inserts printed at Vista print.  The ribbons from Fine Ribbons.

Punch out corners before folding the invitation.  Used a lightweight
cardstock.  Any thicker the wild flower puncher will not work.

Unfolded the invitation measures 13.5" by 9"

Folded invitation into 4 sections.  Section 1 is 2.5", then 4", 4" and the
pocket is 3" deep.

The contents of the invitation is printed on white linen paper (section 2).
It's centered from top to bottom, left to right in section 2.

On the right side is the pocket where we can put inserts like
RSVP info and the "entourage list".

Pocket is 3 inches deep and the sides are glued shut.

For a neat professional looking folds each section
 was scored and folded using a bone folder.

a closer look

pocket is not glued all the way to the top.  It was glued from bottom
 corner up to  the  beginning of the  wild flower punched out image.

Olaf Rice Crispy Sculpture

Build a snowman in the summer with rice crispy treats and buttercream.   I can't say I miss the snow because I am perfectly happy with this warm weather.  Just in case, here is one way to make a snowman in the summer.  But before that here are some pics from my niece's Frozen themed birthday party.

Here is how I made Olaf....

You will need:

3 preparations of rice crispy treats (found in any Rice Crispy cereal box)
about 150 g brown fondant
60 g orange fondant
250 g black fondant
250 g white fondant for eyes, teeth, and cheeks
1 preparation of shortening base buttercream
3 large bamboo BBQ sticks
1 foot bendable florist wire
gardening sheers

Make Olaf's head first since this will determine the size and the proportionality of the whole sculpture.  The recipe found in the Rice Crispy cereal box is perfect amount to make Olaf's head.  Use the microwave method to make a chewy and more malleable rice crispy treats.  Let the treats sit for a maximum of 8 minutes…

Pilipit - Filipino Twisted No Yeasts Donut

Pilipit is a Filipino style donut.  It has a crunchy outer shell and a soft inside.  It is similar to bannock or elephant ears.  These are similar to donuts and leavened with baking powder.  Traditionally coated with sugar or glazed

I coated mine with powder sugar kind of like their elephant ears counter part.  But you know what they are perfect on their own without sugar.  The dough is sweet enough to hold on its own.  

The ones that I made are for some reason soft on the inside.  I'm certain it's because I rested my dough for more than 30 minutes instead of the usual 15 minutes.  If you guys want more crunch in your pilipit just proof it (resting stage) for 15 minutes or less.



2 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon Vegetable oil
2 cups all purpose flour ( add a bit more if the mixture sticks to your hand)
3 tablespoon of milk ( add more if final mixture is dry)
