Spaghetti and Meatballs, Afghan and Rug
I am thinking that I need at least another row of black and one of white to make them apparent.
Tessie refuses to do anymore until I give her some of her favorite kind of Spaghetti and Meatballs...She will, however, pose for a photo opp at any time...
The turquoise and pink at the bottom is the area I am working on....I may have to tear out the pink. It is too light to show up as a separate color.
Tessie is now doubling up her fists and demanding meatballs...
OK...Go to the next photo and look.
Here you go. Spaghetti and even MEATBALLS! So there, Honey Boo Boo!
They are yellow cupcakes with a light coat of spread on frosting. Over that, I piped on extra frosting with a small round cake decorating tube.
I then warmed some strawberry preserves in the microwave just enough to make it a bit runny. I didn't want it to be hot.
Into that, I dipped Ferrero Rocher chocolates. Just enough to coat them. I plopped one into the middle of each pile of spaghetti and then dabbed extra preserves around the bottom edge to make sauce.
The last touch is grated white chocolate for the cheese.
I think that I have a new favorite Italian dish....I know Tessie does!
I can't take all of the credit for this. I did think of doing it all by myself. I was thinking of using cake pops for the meatballs and making them myself....I don't particularly like cake pops, so I was trying to think of something else to use...I put "spaghetti cake" in the msn search engine and hit "images" and to my amazement there are a LOT of people as crazy as I am. Several said that the candy could be used.
It was great fun to make and probably will be even more fun to eat...I have to just look at it until the meeting at Joan's house this afternoon. Oh well, Tessie and I got to lick the bowls...Now she is in the tub in the townhouse. Cleaning up. She fell in the frosting bowl.
I guess I should go wash the frosting out of my hair before I go to Joan's house.
See you tomorrow.
