tickled pink...5 october 2008 gratitudes






1. had a yummy teanychino and walked to work with pete. i love a grey, fall day.

2. took a detour and went by a mini garage sale in freeman's alley. a collection of old thermoses called out to me so i rescued a rusted one with a deteriorating image of dancing poodles in paris. she was just so sweet i couldn't resist...

3. came to work to find my silver tin, oscar the grouch trashcan-turn-laundry hamper from ikea waiting for me. thank you miss chelsea cook for picking that up for me. now i can actually store my unsightly piles of laundry in a charming fashion. it's all about baby steps...

4. coco brought me a delicious, piping hot cup of black coffee from joe's. such a thoughtful little lady.

5. received an invitation from waylon watts to see hot chip, m.i.a, and n.e.r.d on october 11th. i can't wait, i'm just so flipping excited!!!!

6. wore my knitted cap. i love it so. i look a little deshelved and homeless, but i don't care. maybe it would help if i brushed my hair more and wore slimmer silhouettes.

7. made chocolate tea for me and haynes riley. i'm addicted.

8. the moment when the world is still and the quiet sound of rustling leaves creates a hush over the streets. sigh.

9. am compiling and organizing my photos into categories. i have lots of pink in my life. this is just a smattering of one of my favorite colors...

10. am desperately trying to find edible glitter. i want to dust the tops of all of my desserts with the culinary equivalent of german glass glitter. if anyone can recommend some real good shiny stuff to bedazzle my sweets, please inform me. inquiring minds want to know...

check out NY cake and baking distributors on 22nd st between 5th and 6th... they pretty much have everything you can think of and more. the variety of cake pans, decorations, sugar flowers, etc. is enough to make your head spin.

Mmmmm chocolate tea? Where can I find some? Sounds like the perfect fall treat.

You can also make your own edible glitter if you feel so inclined!

EDIBLE GLITTER

- Mix equal parts gum arabic and water in a glass jar and let mixture set overnight.

- With a pastry brush, thinly apply the mixture to a very clean, slick, heat-proof glass surface, such as a Corning Ware dish, Pyrex heat-proof glass, etc..

- Place in a preheated 250 F degree oven.

- When the mixture begins to curl up (approx. 6 to 8 minutes) remove from oven and scrape onto wax paper.

- Crumble to the desired size.

- For colored glitter use paste food coloring to tint the mixture.

Good luck. xo

I've been using www.fancyflours.com to buy wedding things. They have a great assortment of edible glitter.

Effie said...

oh, no - I don't think we've ever met before. I have to admit though, I've been so rudely reading your blog for a while now and I should have introduced myself a good long while ago!! I'm hoping to visit New York sometime in November, it'd be wonderful to meet up then!

oh, have you heard of gold liqueur? it has real gold in it, little glittering pieces. probably french ones are better than what ive tasted so far. it's quite sour and strong (40% alcohol), so better mix it with something like mandarin juice. some maybe a little spicy.

not edible but surely has glitter and is surely chic :)
