LA fashion week fall 2011

LA fashion week isn't exactly like NY fashion week. Smaller designers participate. Making for eccentric nights like this. At the Ace gallery a few designers had rooms/galleries set up like vignettes with little peekaboo's to they're lines. I loved the antlers in the model's hair in the first photo. I think I must attempt this on my next model victim.

bleeding cakes

Stabbed red velvet cupcakes
Made these mini knifes out of gum paste. Think adult edible play dough. I bought mine and dyed it myself using Wilton products.
Here is a recipe for all you Martha's out there:



  • 1 Lb Powdered Sugar Fine -10X plastic bag
    1 Packet Knox Gelatin
    2 TBS of Lemon juice
    3 TBS of Water
    1 Tsp of Glucose


    Add gelatin, water & juice over double boiler; dissolve about 5 to 7 minutes. Add glucose stir. Use a mixer with dough hook. Place sugar in mixer then add liquid mix until slightly together remove and knead. If it feels too sticky add a little more sugar. Wrap with plastic wrap and place in plastic bag, seal. Let rest over night.

THEN whip up some red velvet cakes and frost them with white/vanilla/cream cheese frosting of your choice. Squirt with a little red food coloring and let it drip a bit. Then stab away!

    Monetary inspiration

    This story of living on $20,000 a year is inspiring to me. Its the way of the world at the moment. All of us that are slaves to fashion should read this. Buy less and really live in our favorite pieces. Spend a little more on ONE pair of shoes if they would get you threw two seasons and you don't have to buy another.

I got the s'mores and he got the PB and J. YUM. I also got to wear my new thigh highs because it was finally cold enough.
