Comment on Expat by Andrew https://mumturnedmom.com/life-in-the-us/#comment-608109 Sun, 24 Mar 2019 08:58:11 +0000 https://mumturnedmom.wordpress.com/?page_id=6091#comment-608109 Hi Sara, skim reading through your blog it’s very uplifting and inspiring. I’ve recently started my own ‘5 year plan’ to try and move to the US (or Canada) and blog to track my progress. It’s just gone live at http://www.statesideby35.com and I wondered if you’d be willing to share any tips you have on building a good looking blog site or how to get the expat dream off the ground. Appreciate you must get requests like this all the time though so no worries if you can’t. Thanks anyway and keep on writing!

Comment on How to make a Minecraft Diamond Sword cupcake cake by Sara | mumturnedmom https://mumturnedmom.com/2016/03/07/bake-minecraft-diamond-sword-cake/#comment-607926 Thu, 21 Mar 2019 23:02:54 +0000 http://mumturnedmom.com/?p=19299#comment-607926 It was a huge cake! Because I used the brownie tin, each ‘cupcake’ was quite big, so the overall length of the cake was massive. But, it was to feed a group at a party so, it was perfect. If you want to make a smaller cake, you could use smaller ‘brownie’ squares than the tin I used, or make it slightly shorter by taking out a ‘line’ or two, and then you wouldn’t need quite such a large board :) But, yes, it was 50″ long!

1. You can buy lots of different colors of fondant, and for this cake I bought pale pink for the face. However, you can use food coloring to color white fondant to whatever color you’d like. This is especially useful when you only need a small amount of a specific color.
2. By dirty-ice I do indeed mean a crumb coat – I must update that terminology in the post!

I recently went back to work, and it’s been quite entertaining. They tell me I’m ‘being British’ again when I use a phrase they don’t know :)

I’ll be making this in 2 days and need to find a board, fabulous idea!!

1. Having never worked with fondant before, does it come in white and you just separated it to make individual colors?
Meaning do you buy it in every color or just color it yourself to create ALL the colors?
2. I am not familiar with them term “dirty” frost. Does it mean that you put on a layer of icing the includes a bit of cake crumbs in? Thank you so very much!
