How to Make a Rose Apple Tart

How to Make a Rose Apple Tart
I love pie. Love it. LOVE it. For flavor, it can't be beat, in my opinion. I was inspired by classic French apple tarts. This was more of a technique than a recipe, really, but I'll list out the ingredients I used, too. Rose Apple Tart Recipe single pie crust recipe Four or five large apples, sliced thinly 1/3 cup sugar 1 t cinnamon 2 t lemon juice 2 T butter, melted First thing's first: make your dough. Press the dough into your tart pan and brush with melted butter. Pin It Next up, core and slice your apples. Use this technique for coring your apples. Pin It Slice your apples thinly. Pin It Now it's time to start forming the roses. To create the center of the rose, roll one apple slice in a tight coil. Pin It Do you see what I mean about using the coring technique I linked to above? Pin It Fill in any gaps between the large roses with little rosebuds--just one or two apple slices coiled exactly like the centers of the large roses. Pin It This apple tart was delicious just as it was.

DIY Cupcake stand | Brooklyn Bride - Modern Wedding Blog Wouldn’t it be fun to have a bunch of cupcakes instead of one big wedding cake? I found some candle holders at the dollar store and with a little makeover thought it’d be fun to place one at each guest’s table as a favor and as dessert. Just leave some cute boxes at the door so as they leave they can box it up. Bingo! Materials: gold spray paint, pink glitter, glue that adheres to glass (I used a universal glue found here in Denmark), spray mount, glass candlestick, and glass candle holder. Step 1: put some glue around the rim of the candlestick. Step 2: Attach the holder to the candlestick. Step 3: Spray the cupcake stand gold. Step 4: With the spray mount, spray about 3″ of the perimeter of the stand. Step 5: Quickly after, pour the glitter onto the stand. Voila!

Stenciling with Bleach So here’s tutorial #3 in the bleach series! It’s an easy way to customize a shirt, fabric by removing color instead of adding it. For my first project I used a $1 doily as my stencil. I placed it on a navy t-shirt and sprayed a mist of bleach over top: I moved the stencil to another location and sprayed again. Navy….turning to a dark pink/purple: Finished: You can also use vinyl or freezer paper stencils. I used a sponge to dab the bleach around the stencil and I used a spray bottle to mist around it: Once the shirt began to change colors, I sprayed the back of the shirt with bleach. Bleach stenciling is an easy way to add lettering to a shirt too. Finished! Visit the other two projects from this week by clicking the images below:

Molten Lava Cakes « Recipe I love these little babies. Surprisingly, this has been the first time I’ve ever made them myself. While preparing these Chocolate Lava Cakes I learned that they are super-fun to make. They are also surprising. That is what you find out when you dig into them. And, with the generous amount of chocolate they contain, I’m sure they are just super seductive. That all makes them the perfect dessert choice for Valentine’s Day, don’t you think? Now, let me invite you to my kitchen and show you how I prepared my version of these adorable sweet cakes… Here’s what we need. Couldn’t be simpler. 1. 2. I’ve used 6-ounce (180 ml) ramekins. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Let cool slightly. And be strong! 8. 9. 10. I only have two, so I had to bake in two batches. 11. 12. 13. Too long. Although nice and tasty, they weren’t that ‘molten’ in the center. I baked the second batch for only 10 minutes. That was much better. I really like the moist center. Aah, I love this game. 11 minutes would make them absolutely perfect.
