Crochet Rolls

Finished sewing these crochet rolls for a great bunch of gals from my Ravelry group, Bangalore.....and wait till you see what they got for me!!! .... that will be another post as soon as I click pictures of them....
Another look.....
One more....
The open ones on the left (top) are small pouches for the non-crocheting lot...I thought they could use it as a knitting-notions bag.....
A view with the hooks in.....
There was a young member who I thought needed something brighter than this sombre brown, so I made her an orange gingham drawstring project bag....
Hope she finds it useful .......(sorry for the bad picture)...
And these......(didn't make these boxes, of course...)
Happy hooking!!! I enjoyed making these gifts immensely!!!!

Gone in 60 Seconds!!!!

The cake I baked for my son's farewell dinner when he was leaving for college......
How to: 
I used this simple one-step recipe ......find it here..... for this cake.
For the icing I whipped up 200gms (about 1 cup) cream till it formed soft peaks, then added 3-4 tbsp of icing sugar. I used tinned cherries in sugar syrup. Had to de-seed the cherries before using.
I mixed 3 tsp of rum in the syrup and drizzled it over the cakes before icing to moisten them and add to the flavours. Then sandwiched the two layers with one-thirds of the cream and cherries. Used the rest to slather on top and finished with cherry halves. I then let it chill for an hour or so to set the cream.
The flavours develop better if you can keep the cake for a few hours.
That's it!!!
ps: adding the rum is optional....:)

The demolition begins.....
the pacman slice....
going.....
