Fimo Cupcake Tutorial

Last week it was mu mum's birthday. I made a Fimo Cupcake for her. And I thought I could make my first tutorial on it.

First of all, the material.
Fimo is a polymer clay. It is used for making many things, including jewelry, accessories, and small trinkets. Once shaped, Fimo is baked in a standard or toaster oven for about 30 minutes at 110°C to harden it. Once baked, it can be cut, drilled, painted, sanded, and sliced thinly. (source Wikipedia).

1. First of all I made the base. You have to choose the colour, I chose "peppermint".

I have some cupcakes moulds, so it was easy for me, 'cause I took one of them (they are made of silicone), I flattened the Fimo and I put it into the mould. Like this:

Then you have to make the border flat (I haven't done it -.-). And you can put it into the oven.

2. Meanwhile, you can begin to make the funniest part, de real cupcake with its decorations.
you have to choose the colours again. I chose "lavender".

You have to flatten it, and make a circle, just a littlebit bigger than the base.

Then, you have to take another bit of the same colour, and rool it up, then put it like this on the flat circle that you have just made:

Be sure not to leave any holes ^^, except for that hole on the top, where you will put a cherry.

3. The cherry. I obviously chose red for the cherry, but if you want you can make it of another colour. I made a little ball, just as big as the hole you have left and with a knife i made a little hole, like this:

Then, I took "lime green", made a very thiny roll, and put it into the little hole.

I wanted to add some decorations, so I made little rolls with some different colours, cutted it and put it on the cupcake.

Finally, I put everything in the oven.. (meanwhile, the base had finished his baking time).
And after half an hour..
Here it is!!

I hope you'll enjoy making this little cupcake.. Leave a comment with a link to your blog if you want!
And.. this for my mum I made real cupcakes!!

Tomorrow I have a lecture at 8 a.m., maybe I'll have some time to make new thing with Fimo =).

A cupcakes Froggy!

I am attending a course of English Literature, and, of course I am studying "Romeo and Juliet" by Shakespeare. Now I'm going to watch the film with Leonardo di Caprio, to have an idea, and to see how different the book and the movie are (even because I think the movie takes place in time period, doesn't it?). Well, and do you know the song, the soundtrack "Kissing you" by Des'ree? I love that song! You can find it --> here

I had a wonderful weekend back home, Miele has grown so much, but she also bites!!

I made colorful cupcakes, and next weekend I'm going to make a lot of them for my mum's birthday..

Saturday Roberto and I went to the cinema, we saw "Up", it was so much fun!!

Ok, I have to sell my old books, and I'm going to study History..
This evening I am planning to make something for my mum's birthday with Fimo.. mmh.. I need ideas!!

I was just thinking about a Tv show I saw last week.
It is about kids, the presenter talks with them in a natural way, there are some famous guests and they are interviewed by the kids. It's so funny, because children are sincere, they don't think about what they're saying, they don't care if someone is a rich or famous person. I like it so much.
Last week the presenter asked a little boy to play hide and seek with him, but in the room where they were talking there was no places where he could hide.
So he was thinking about where to hide while the presenter was talking, then..He saw the waste-paper basket, and he just put his face in the basket, thinking that nobody could see him. Ahaahah it's so cute!!
This is the video!

Now, I'm trying to draw something cute. But I have also to study a lot..

I'm dreaming about this place, it's where I live with my family, wonderful, when I'm far away I always think about how beautiful that place is..

Bye!! ^^
A studying Froggy

Oh, yes.. I was just talking (mm..writing) about my cupcakes, and I'm looking forward to make them, but I have to wait a couple of hours.
Well, I just drawed two capcakes on my recipe-notebook and my agenda. I took a picture with my webcam, therefore it's not wonderful..but.. here they are..!

I like them even if I want to add some colour..
You can also notice that I'm wearing a sweater.. It's cold again!!!


Just Love.
Waiting for Saturday.

This evening some friends will come here. I'm going to make some cupcakes!! Yeeeh!!
And Elena, my roommate, is going to make chicken curry, I don't love meat at all, but I'll make an effort.^^
I am cleaning everything, hoping they'll like our flat. I'll post some photos "soon"..
Bye everyone..!

Here I am. I was just reading some blogs, and I thought I should write every day, or at least every two days. The fact is that I really don't find the time. If I have two minutes between my history book and the lectures, I clean up my house, or I craft something.. The new year has began.
I have a lot of ideas in my mind, but here in Turin I have no neddles, no yarn..nothing. And, yes, I go home every 2 weeks, but in the train I cannot bring a lot of things, surely I cannot bring a sewing machine ^^. But, I brought all my Fimo with me, so I can make at least something.

Last week I made chocolate cupcakes, with dark chocolate icing. Mmhhh!!! Everyone wants more! ahah..! I'll post the pictures when I'll have the connecting cable of my camera -.-
These are faboulous cupcakes I found in a fantastic icing-world.

( ).
Tomorrow some friends will come here, so I am planing to make a lot of nice cupcakes!

I was also skimming the new Ikea catalogue, and I found a lot of things I want to have, absolutely!! All those colours, the fabrics, the cute bowls, etc. I have to say that I always like much more the things which are in the section "kids". ^^

Oh, well. My cat is growing!! She's always playing, it's so funny!
She thinks everything is moving, she plays with her shadow, and with her tail..ahahah..!I took this picture in one of the few moments that she was calm. =). Isn't she beautiful (qhen she sleeps?)
Ok, I have to go to the library, buying, I think, 10 books. It's cold!! Brr..!!
Bye.. !! I hope I can write more often..!!

A little freeeeeezing Froggy.
