Corn Bread Madelines

My dad wanted some corn bread and bought the mix from Costco so I baked them yesterday in these small loaf pans. Turned out really cute!





I also bought a madeline pan for $12 from Sur La Table and wanted to bake some in here too just for fun. You can't see the scallop of the madelines but its still good! :)

Caramel Apples Outta Shape

I wanted to make a cute treat for halloween and I thought of caramel apples! But I don't like caramel as much so I made a healthy version and the original caramel version with a little twist. I just cut out the halloween shapes from apple slices, skip the caramel and cover the apples in lemon juice to keep it from oxidizing and put them on toothpicks. I got these cut outs from Sur La Table. The cat and the ghost cut outs were $1 and were the only big ones that would fit on an apple slice. The other small ones were part of a fall set and were about $4 bucks.




And for the original caramel apple v.2! I had a kit that my cousins gave to me a while back and finally decided it was time to make some. But this time I wanted to try it a bit differently. Instead of using the caramel apple whole, I decided to try cutting out shapes from slices of granny apples. I then sprinkled some sea salt on top for extra flavor. It was a bit of a fail because the caramel doesn't stick to the sliced and peeled apples because it is too moist for it to hold on. But I think if I could get around that it would be so perfect and cute! Anyone have ideas on how to make it happen?

My First Asymmetrical Pearl Necklace

I have been making earrings only so far and decided it was high time I started making necklaces! My passion for necklaces isn't really as great as it is for earrings but it was really fun and exciting to make this. I didn't expect much because it was my first but it turned out pretty nice, if I may say so myself. :)

Coraline Button Eye Earrings

You know, you could stay forever, if you want to. There's one tiny thing we have to do first...-Other Mother, Coraline

These were inspired by the Coraline movie. Simple but nice. And a little creepy...I will never again look at black buttons the same after watching that movie.
