Mom got sent some Yummy Dough and seeing as Sunday’s are usually rather uneventful Fysh, The brat (aka my brother) and myself decided to have a go at it and get our craft on.
It’s pretty easy to whip up, the tub comes with 4 colours and you simply empty the contents of a packet into a bowl and add 15ml of water. The mixing is weird though and at first it feels like it will never go from powder to dough but it does.
We made all four colours and then got creative… Yes I made a cupcake.
I couldn’t very well cook (once done playing with your dough you actually bake it! It’s a whole lot like cookie dough but stiffer) the giant blob that Fysh dubbed a car. So we rolled it into a log and made rainbow cookies out of them.
They taste like pure sugar but that’s considerably better than what salted playdough tastes like right? We had fun and it’s nice to keep in mind for the next birthday party or family birthday in general. Fysh gets to have fun and the byproduct is something you can wrap up in a pretty box and give as a gift.
Going to keep my rainbow log idea in mind next time there’s a birthday but I’ll use my sugar cookies recipe I love so much…
Disclosure: This product was given to SA kids on the Go! to review but I was not paid to write this.
All words and opinions are my own.
I am a baking machine this week, seriously though, I have no idea what bee has climbed into my bonnet but I’ve been on a baking mission. So far this week has seen cupcakes, cookies and now banana loaf!
A week or so ago I bought box of banana’s to make ice cream with a while back and they were having a special where you get a box free, decided to leave the second box in the fridge to ripen and this week they hit black perfection!
So I donned my apron, grabbed the box of banana’s and 6 mini bread loaf tins (cause they’ll be wrapped up and delivered to friends and family) and took out all my stress in the kitchen… Watch out Martha and Nigella, I’m going to show you all how it’s done soon ;)
And of course I’ll share the recipe with you, cause it was too yummy not to!
So this momma got creative yesterday and decided that it would be a good idea to bake heart shaped biscuits to send with Fysh to school. Cause I’m the super cool mom you know, the one that other moms love to hate cause I do thoughtful things like send each kid (and teacher) a little something special on valentines day…
Plus Fysh just adores baking so hells, why not :)
Turns out I made a little more work for myself than I thought, by the time the last card was cut out and the last cookie was painted and bagged I was more than relieved. It’s a good thing that the next holiday is a good two months away ;)
Oh right, and for those of you who would like the recipe:
It’s that wonderful hallmark holiday today, you know the one – it’s that one that rubs it in your face that you’re single and have to buy your own flowers. Not that I want flowers seeing as they keel over after a few days anyway but you get the point. And on that note… I need a drink!
Decided to google a few cocktails and came across this list of unusual cocktails and drinks for you adventurous drinkers out there. Damn I could do with one of those Toblerone’s right about now. But seeing as that it’s in the middle of the morning and this mommy is at work we’ll have to find a non-alcoholic drink for this month of love…
So what non alcoholic drink can I conjure up? Well how’s about some good old butter beer?! With beer in the title perhaps I can trick my brain into thinking there is some booze in it ;)
The recipe is simple actually and if I can ace it so can you!
So the recipe I found calls to use cream soda but with the South African cream soda being green I decided to first make a batch of home-made cream soda, plus we don’t get butter imitation here (well none that I could find) so I had to go the clarified butter root.
I found out it’s international pancake day and decided we needed to participate.
My instagram timeline was flooded with photos of participants… pancakes galore and I’ll be damned if Fysh and I didn’t get to have pancakes for dinner but this vegan thing makes these sort of things tricky…
A while back I found the Orgran range which is gluten free and vegan friendly!
Got all my ingredients together so Fysh and I could bake, he decided to watch Ice Age and colour in instead so mummy was left to do the baking for a change.
Yeah… there are some things that will take my tastebuds a while to get used to. Buckwheat vegan pancakes are one of those things hahaha!
Next time we’ll make pumpkin flapjacks/fritters instead…
Fysh and I did that whole “hunt for really good fro-yo” a few weeks back and found a little fro-yo joint that has become a place we frequent as often as we can (not often enough on a budget) so … Continue reading →
I decided that even though finances are screaming “cancel Christmas” we are going to make it an awesome one and after winning a competition I entered on diaries of a white mom raising a black baby for a trash can … Continue reading →
I remembered seeing a photo somewhere for rainbow noodles and I decided to finally give it a try… the result was loved by everyone in our little circus of a house. Fysh was very taken by them (and that he … Continue reading →
After yesterday’s meltdown (can’t that all of you enough for the words of encourage and just simply “listening” to my vent, means more than you know) I decided I should keep fish home for the day and spend some one … Continue reading →
