No Bake Christmas Hedgehogs

While I love decorating cookies, I hate having to bake from scratch. And these hedgehogs on oreos are just my kind of thing.
Ingredients
  • Oreo cookies
  • Melted chocolate
  • 1 small tube green icing
  • Red cachous
  • Kraft Soft Caramels
  • Chocolate rice sprinkles
  • 1 black edible food marker
Directions
  1. Carefully twist cookies apart.
  2. Use the halves with cream filling.
  3. Pipe leaves on the cream with the green icing.
  4. Place 3 red cachous between the leaves for berries.
  5. Shape hedgehog from 1 1/2 caramel squares.
  6. Dip hedgehog in melted chocolate.
  7. Coat the wet chocolate with sprinkles and gently place the hedgehog on a Oreo cookie.
  8. With a toothpick dipped in chocolate, make a dot on the nose.
  9. Use the black edible food marker to dot the eyes.
  10. Let stand until set.
  11. Store in an airtight container.

Aren't these perfect for Christmas?

Turkey Cake Pops

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving over here on our side of the pond; I just made these turkey cake pops for fun.

Like them?  These are supposed to be roast turkeys on a bed of lettuce. The green thingys are cornflakes tossed with green frosting.  I got the idea from those adorable turkey cupcakes I stumbled upon @ Taste Of Home. I couldn't find any Kraft caramels in the local supermarkets and ended up making these turkey cake pops instead.

Pinstrosity - When Pinterest Projects Go Wrong

I've tried many Pinterest projects and some have failed miserably though all evidence was destroyed as I only showcased the few successful ones. It was so comforting to know that I was not alone when I stumbled upon this blog called Pinstrosity. If you haven't heard of them already, it’s a blog of photos and stories submitted by Pinterest lovers and their Pinterest fails.

Here are some of my faves from their blog.

"Our punch was a polluted mess! The color of the "bath water" turned out to be more of a green-brown murky color! Then, we put the rubber penguins in and they all fell over...
The bright side? It was delicious and quite hilarious. We named this new recipe 'Global Warming Punch.'"

Queenie Liao - Wengenn In Wonderland


When Adele Enerson's book titled "Mila's Daydreams" (a compilation of photos of whimsical backdrops created around her napping daughter that were orchestrated from clothes and household objects) was published, many moms were inspired to craft their own sceneries. This prompted the author to host a competition among her fans to submit their sleeping baby images. Queenie Liao was the first place winner with her Valentine’s Day dinner theme.
Here are some of her other creations
