Winnie the Pooh version 2

This is a hand sculpted Winnie the Pooh bear.  Version 1 seems more rectangular.  I have more practice  and experience carving so this is more contoured instead of cubic like.  In this version I used Wilton tip 21 and he is shirtless.  Its easier to put on his shirt before the head is attached.  Finish piping out buttercream on Pooh's body.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until frosting is set.  Cover the area where his shirt is going to be with thin rolled out red fondant.  Refrigerate once again for 30 minutes.  Take out of the fridge and cut out the desired shape for pooh's shirt.  Its easier if create a pattern to use to cut out Pooh's shirt.  Refrigerate until fondant is set.  Take out of fridge and attach the head.

I made the head out of cereal treats with a circle carved out at the bottom of the head so to keep the head attached to its body.  BBQ bamboo sticks can also be pushed through the head and to the body for added support.  Pipe buttercream on the head.  Make eyebrows, eyes, ears, and nose using black fondant.  Use royal icing to attach the ears.  Stick 2 coctail toothpicks at the bottom of the ears.  Pick a spot on top of pooh's head and pipe out royal icing.  Lay down the ears.  Do the same on the other side.  Attach all parts on Pooh's face.

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
toothpicks
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.
