Yum. Dirt. Who can resist it? Just kidding. This kind of dirt is different, though. It’s chocolate.
with a little pink fondant rose. Who can resist?
To make these… I got 12 little terra cotta pots at the garden center. (39¢ each). Then, I washed them real good. I lined them with foil like this:
Then, I brushed the insides with oil and dusted with cocoa powder.
Next? I made a cake FROM A BOX. (shocking, huh…) I was just too lazy to measure a bunch of stuff, ya know…(we all have our lazy days….)
Sometimes, people make these with a crushed Oreo cookies. I didn’t have any- so I used teddy grahams (chocolate) and some coarse sugar.
Before I put the “dirt” on top- I made a mixture of 3 tbs soft butter, 1/3 c chocolate syrup and 1/4 c powdered sugar. If I had a can of the “other frosting” I would have done that…. like I said- I was kinda lazy. I used a mini (butter?) knife to stick the worms in.
Ta-da! I have been messing around a bit more with my photos and I have come to realize I need glasses. Ugh. Can I just use some drugstore ones or do I have to go to a doctor? I really dislike offices. Hmmm.
I also have been messing with my image sizes. Eeek. More computer stuff to learn.
Bear with me, folks.
Is it Spring where you are? I think it is here. I keep seeing lizards mating. I need to get a pic of that for y’all. Lizard porn.
I keep seeing doves doing something to- maybe it’s mating- it’s not too graceful. There’s pretty flowers, too. Maybe you’d rather see those? I can do that.
Anyway, spring has sprung and I am in need of some good ideas. I’m stuck in a bit of a rut on what to cook/eat/make/plant/do/clean/organize/obsess-over .
Any input will make me smile. 🙂 I love you guys.
