150g Sugar
75g Butter (Melted)
150ml Bailey’s

[★] Preheat Oven to 200C. Sift the Flour, Cocoa Powder & Baking Powder together in a bowl. Add the Sugar and stir together.
[★]  Add the Melted Butter, beaten Eggs, Vanilla Essence, Bailey’s and Optional: Ingredients and mix together. Stir in the Chopped White Chocolate.
[★]  Spoon into cake cases (I made 15 with this recipe!) and bake for 18-20 minutes until well risen.
[★] Melt the Brown Chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water and drizzle over the cooled cakes.
[★]  I drizzled some leftover White Chocolate over the Brown for contrast and added Mini Eggs and little rabbits I’d made from Ready-to-Roll white icing ^.^

M E R M A I D S !
I had a Splat day last week with Sue being away and took a break to adorn my sketchbook with some funky colours! I quite like the one above, and gave her opaque fins and suckers down the front of her tail to contrast with her rainbow hair and black eyes. She’s probably the most tropical one that’s jumped out of my head so far ^.^

A Selkie! She’s plainer, chunkier and much less colourful than the Mermaids but is more good-natured, practical and modest.

An Orca Mermaid! I had Killer Whales and polar icebergs on the brain when I started her.

This one got scarier as I started colouring her in.
She’s a Plague Mermaid – lives in the Dark and see’s nothing but the Future and can’t speak to tell it.
When I eventually (Ha-haaa!) finish the Romance Story I’ve been working on for three years, I’d like to illustrate each new Chapter with a full-page plate before the Story resumes.

I treated myself to an Elissabat a few weeks ago and only got the chance to unbox her properly last night. She is bloody gorgeous! It’s lovely that Monster High have released Dolls already in their ambitions rather than not quite getting there yet, plus I’ve been waiting a while for a Gothic-Lolita styled one 😉 If they release a Monster High Wrestler Doll, I’ll be over the Moon 😀

Shelf is getting a bit full again…no? 😉

Put together Twylla’s outdoor run this morning and had her out for a few hours in the Sun this afternoon whilst I drew for a few hours. Gonna take some tunes out next time and maybe have a spare Bunny-sitter so I don’t need to pack up everytime I need the loo – haha!

She doesn’t look impressed, Bless her!
Phew – That’s all for now!


Unboxing Ceremonies

The Girl’s have been having a fight for space with my avidly-growing book collection for a while now, and choosing between the two wasn’t even worth considering, so the time came for them to upgrade to their own black-shelf corner space in the Living Room.
Poor Lagoona has been in her box since before Christmas, but I wanted to get the Living Room properly finished and ready before I introduced her to the rest of the Girls 😉
I tidied away the Wallpapering table, cleaned out Twylla, gave the room a thorough clean and bought a bottle of wine for the occassion:

“I guess you’re my new sister!”
She doesn’t come with a stand, so popping her next to lonely eBay-liberated Rochelle was quite lovely. Poor Rochelle! She was sitting there all on her own still waiting for her Deuce! Hopefully Lagoona will give her a cuddle, share her hot chocolate and tell her that what will be, will be, Love!
I adore her, right down to the tentacley beverage and her slippers! She’s kicking her legs in an elegantly careless and casual fashion and it just makes me go *squee* everytime I glance over at the corner.
The pink locker behind everyone was a present from my own Sister, and holds everyone’s hairbrushes and Diaries.

Does anyone else have Unboxing Rituals – detailed or casual – when they bring a new Girl home or am I just weird?

Haha 😉
