Popin' Cookin DIY Ice Cream Candy Review

It was my birthday a few weeks ago, and Slave Brad bought me a bunch of Popin' Cookin sets.

Brad wore his SLAVE shirt on my birthday, but that wasn't my idea!

 The first set we attempted was the Ice Cream candy:

Wafers, cones, sprinkles, piping bag, etc. on my Makitti compartment plate (because it's bad when food touches)

The first step is to mix water with the ice cream powder.  Check out the uber cute pink spatula that can double as a night cream scooper.  (Birthdays make me think about wrinkles, and wrinkles make me think about anti-wrinkle treatments.)

The next step is to fill the pastry bag with the "ice cream" paste, which is definitely harder than it sounds!  Filling the cone is even harder, hence my ugly cone on the left. 

The ice cream was DELICIOUS!!!  So delicious that I tilted my head back and sucked the leftover frosting from the piping bag - classy, huh?  Thank you, Slave Brad :)

Bit of Sugar Craziness!

It's been pretty hectic around the Bit of Sugar studio (aka my apartment) since the last time I've blogged.  We've had a craft fair/show, a trip to Seattle, and have spent endless hours prepping for Kawaii Kon and Islandwide Expo.  Both are HUGE shows and they're on the same weekend - STRESS!!!

I'm taking a 20 minute break from the faux cupcakes to catch up on what's been happening over the past few months.  Here are some pics from our ski trip to Snoqualmie, about an hour east of Seattle.

My two new friends.  Do you like my hat?  Get your own here:  The ski lift attendant recognized me as the stupid-girl-in-the-cat-hat-who-doesn't-know-how-to-get-off-the-lift and stopped the lift for me :)

Cousins Brad and Kathy

Sarah, Brendon, and Eeemee mee seesee (aka Emily).  Check our her cool pink ski mask with interchangeable mustaches.
