Homemade Easy Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Jelly on Top

Homemade easy chocolate cake with raspberry jelly on top

Chocolate Cake

100 g cacao
100 g sugar
4 eggs
150 g flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat your oven to 180° C (350° F) degrees. Line a 22 cm (8.5-inch) round springform with parchment paper.
Fill the batter into the prepared springform and bake for about 15 minutes. Take out of the oven and let cool on a wire rack before removing from the pan.

Cheese cream

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 sheets of gelatin
1 vanilla bean
250 g Greek yoghurt
Blend together.

Raspberry jelly

6 oz jello in 1/2 cup water
1 cup fresh raspberries

Dissolve jelly in water. Add raspberries, stir. Pour over cake. Refrigerate until set.
To make the raspberry layer first soak the gelatin in cold water. In a saucepan cook the raspberries with the powdered sugar, then put through a fine mesh sieve to discard the seeds. (I didn’t do it)
Add the gelatin to the still hot raspberries and let dissolve. Heat up-stirring-don’t boil.
Let cool for a bit, and then fill the raspberry sauce on top of the cake.
Put the cake back in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours until the raspberry jelly has set.

Infinity Scarf Sewing Pattern

   infinity scarf sewing pattern, loop scarf


Today I have an infinity scarf pattern for you. It’s a great beginner project and only takes 30 minutes to make. I made a bunch of these for Christmas gifts this last and they were a big hit.
You can use any light-weight fabric for the infinity scarf.
Use whatever you like and whatever makes you feel fabulous!
Get creative and make it your own!
Materials Needed:
• Fabric Length: 65" Width: 27"
• Scissors
• Sewing machine
• Thread
• Hand sewing needle
• Iron and ironing board
Directions:
1. Select your fabric. Cut your fabric in half lengthwise so that it measures approximately length: 65" width: 27”. I leave the selvage on the fabric as this will be hidden on the inside of the scarf.
2. Fold your fabric in half lengthwise and pin right sides together (so that the pattern is on the inside). You will have a long rectangle of fabric.
3. Sew along the length of your infinity scarf where you just pinned. Make sure you just sew along the length of the fabric, don’t do anything with the ends yet. When you are done you will have a very long tube.
4. Lay your scarf on your ironing board with the seam in the middle of the scarf. Using the tip of your iron press open the seam.
5. Flip your scarf so that it is right side out.
Reach inside the tube from one end and grab the other end. Start pulling the scarf inside itself with right sides together.
6. Fold you infinity scarf in half so that the two open ends are laying on top of each other.
With the two ends of your scarf in your hands find the seam that you just pressed open.
Pinch together so that the seams are lined up and the right side of the fabric is facing each other. Pin.
7. Start stitching around the circle leaving a half inch seam allowance.
This should leave you a couple of inches to flip the scarf back right side out and hand stitch the remainder.
8. Tuck the raw edges inside the hole and pinch together.
You can stitch it closed using a hand slipstitch, or you can edge stitch it on the machine using matching or invisible thread.
Once you've closed all the openings, press your infinity scarf and your new accessory is complete!
Is just a round tube of fabric that you can loop around several times to add an instant pop of color to any outfit.
Your infinity scarf or loop scarf is ready to wear! It’s a nice versatile accessory for spring, and it also makes a great gift for all ages. Double it up or just wear it long for a different look Wearing your infinity scarf: When I first tried on my infinity scarf I had the scarf laying flat.
Make sure that your scarf doesn’t lay flat. Pull the two sides of the tube away from each other and fluff it up so it gives a fuller appearance. Loop it around your neck twice and puff up if necessary.

A Balaclava Free Sewing Pattern

free download PDF pattern balaclava free download PDF pattern balaclava
That made me think, a lot of people come to this blog through searches for "balaclava pattern". What is the balaclava?
A close-fitting, knitted o sewing cap that covers the head, neck, and tops of the shoulders, worn especially by mountain climbers, soldiers, skiers, etc.

I found this free pattern in last night online for a fleece balaclava. I made one this morning in about an hour.
Material: fleece.
With fleece being soft and warm, it has become a fabric many want to have as a hat. There are many colors of fleece fabrics available.

The main thing - do not confuse the inner and outer side of the fabric - for a fleece-like material that matters. Outside air has to pass better than inside.

How do it - fold the fabric so that the sides found each other with the entanglement of approximately 0.5 cm, and chop off so Topstitch seam "zigzag". Get a flat seam, reliable, and a little more comfortable, but it will be visible from the outside.

Remember: If sewing using a flat-stitch technique seam allowances are not needed. Otherwise if making a normal seam add a 5 mm seam allowance when cutting.

Lining (optional)

If you have chosen to add a lining, follow these steps. Sew an identical hat from lining fabric .If you want a edge using stretch binding, turn the lining inside out and place inside the hat. Sew close to the edge with a long stitch (temporary) . If a finished seam is wanted, sew the hat and lining around the edge, right sides together leaving a 5cm gap. Pull the lining through this gap, and finish the 5 cm hole by hand or by top-stitching.

A balaclava, like a ski mask, is a warm, close-fitting winter hat that's designed to keep your head and neck warm in winter weather. Balaclava-style hats can be worn underneath military or bicycle helmets. With basic sewing skills, you can make a fleece balaclava to keep you cozy this winter. Make one for every member of your family to stay warm for this winter's snowball fights, trail hikes and skiing adventures.

Creative Idea- Preserve Fresh Herbs in Olive Oil, Freeze Herbs

Preserving fresh herbs in olive oil from http://www.thekitchn.com/freeze-herbs-in-olive-oil-173648. I like this cite.
"Do you use your freezer to preserve herbs, vegetables, or fruit? The freezer can be a powerful, overlooked method of preserving. I wrote an article for Vegetarian Times that appears this month in the July/August issue, all about preserving the good foods of summer by using the freezer. Pesto, peach puree, tomato soup — stash them away now for the winter! One of my favorite ingredients, a handful of fresh herbs from the garden, is one of the simplest things to preserve in the freezer, and I just learned a new, better way to freeze herbs: In oil!"
