I got the gnome into the rocket! It ended up being fairly easy, with only a few difficult parts that made me want to punch something (like being chased by a helicopter in a vehicle that was not built to carry gnomes). I had mentioned this project in an earlier post, but I just decided to move it here with the remaining screen shots.
This is where I found him, underneath that shelf in the middle left of the picture.
This was a trimph./ I’m making a note here, ‘huge success.’/ It’s hard to overstate my satsifaction!
After hours and hours of sweating over a hot stove, the companion cube cake (technically a giant brownie) has been completed!
Final ingredient tally:
- 7 boxes brownie mix
- 4 cups vegetable oil
- 22 eggs
- 3 and half giant cans white frosting
- some jello mix
- 5 chocolate chip cookies
So it’s some serious cake. The dimensions are 18 x 18 x 18 centimeters, excluding the giant corner pieces. If you want to follow the construction saga, read on!
