Have you ever seen one of those ice cream cakes that looks like a giant ball that’s been cut in half? There’s cake on the outside, but ice cream in the middle, and they’re made with specially shaped baking pans. You don’t necessarily have to have special pans to create similar cakes – even though they may not contain ice cream. You can use pans you already have or you can make your own! By doing so you can open up a whole new world to cakes. Make stacked tier cakes, as beautiful as one from a bakery, with little effort at all!
Gretchen Schmaltz will open for Wayside Drive at Saturday’s release party beginning at 9:30. The band will perform a long set and have hinted that they may have some fun surprises in store. I’m thinking limited edition CBD gummies depicting each band member, but then that’s just me. Admission is $5. Avant Garden is located at 411 Westheimer.
The trick here is to be prepared. Why not throw a Halloween party yourself? You could easily make only vegan food (or include non-vegan for the children who aren’t, if you prefer). Or you could invite other vegan families to join in on a potluck type party so you aren’t responsible for everything yourself.
Adults don’t get enough fiber these days, much less kids. With childhood obesity rising nowadays CBD gummies fiber is so important in not only quelling hunger but also in cleansing our digestive tracts. Fiber also lowers the risk of cholesterol and heart disease. Great sources of fiber include 100% whole grain or whole wheat breads and cereals, fruits with skin, and vegetables not drowned in butter. It’s hard getting your kids to eat broccoli. Pair it with melted healthy cheese. As for cereal, Post Shredded Wheat or Kashi cereals are fantastic and satisfy the sweet tooth.
After the kids are finished making their own kabob they’re ready to eat. If you’re making the shish kabob for a party, slide on the various goodies, then wrap the stick in plastic wrap. When served, make them even more enticing by adding chocolate and under things in which to dip the fruits and confections. Besides melted chocolate you can use sugar, confectioner’s sugar, candy sprinkles, and even jams and fruit sauces. Ice cream toppings work great, too, like caramel or hot fudge.
Chef Chiarello served a Gummy Marinated Lamb Chop, which sounds like just about the most disgusting thing I ever heard of. Chef Symon jokes “nothing says rustic Italian like gummy candy!” But he also called it a “very successful dish.” His sweet dish is an Orange Gummy Panna Cotta. The judges all think it’s a bit firm. Simon called it “a funeral in my mouth and everyone’s invited.” That sounds like an invitation card to the bottom to me.
If you have at home some old colorful sheets, table covers or different fabrics, cut them in little strips, and you can use them to make cute bows. Tie some of the strips together on line to make colorful garlands. If you want to elaborate more, put together a handful of fabric’s strips and using glue make balls, which would look fantastic as tree ornaments.
