I have been experimenting making Whoopie Cakes this afternoon (yes they are legal) in between making cards. Mum and I saw an article in The West Australian newspaper last week about Whoopie Pies or Cakes. We were intrigued so I Googled to find out what they were as I had never heard of them before. As a result of this we ventured off to the Kitchen Witch yesterday at Edgewater and purchased our Whoopie Pans and also found a great recipe book. For my first attempt I made Chocolate Gluten Free Whoopies (Mum and I have had a great laugh over the name of them), they look like the picture in the book so I think this is a great start.. I am just waiting for them to cool completely before I put the filling in, make a cup of coffee and sample the wares.
The card for this post is for the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches, based on the following sketch:
We are supposed to keep out card fresh and clean lined for the challenge but my card ended up a bit antiquified (not sure if that is a word) for the challenge but I thought I would still enter it as I was quite pleased with the finished card.
The inspiration for the colouring of the Elements of Style stamp I cased from the very talented Sandy McIver. I made the flower using the Victoria Crochet Trim and an Antique Brad as the centre.
