Youth theme 2011

Here's my first attempt at the new LDS youth theme for 2011:
It's based on the 13th Article of Faith. I'll probably play around more with it later.

Want the poster - it's found here.

VT Conference Tags

One of the sisters on our committee is knitting 2 little circular kitchen scrubbies for each sister for our VT appreciation dinner and I designed these tags to go with them:
I'll hole punch the tags at the top between the words. After I see the final product, I'll take a photo and post here later.

Red Velvet Cupcake & Frosting

I altered a cake recipe for Red Velvet:1 1/4 cups cake flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Combine all the above dry ingredients well.

1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup heavy cream (or buttermilk or evaporated milk)
1 egg
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 oz - 3/4 oz red food coloring
Start beating the egg, mayo and oil in a mixer while chocolate chips and cream is melting in the microwave (takes about 1 1/2 minutes) and then add the chocolate/cream to the mix. Beat until blended and then add in the vanilla and red food dye. Add the dry ingredients and mix together for 3 minutes.
Makes 18 cupcakes - bake 350 degrees for 17 minutes.

And the frosting is my own:
1/4 cup butter
3 oz cream cheese
4 oz mascarpone cheese
1 vanilla bean - scrap out the insides
3 cups + powdered sugar (depends on the consistency you're going for)
Beat until blended and then frost when cake is cooled.
