Prairie Cakes

Is it almost the end of April already? My that went so fast!

Life just got a bit busy down here! We finally had a few days of lovely rain here! Of course we still want more then we got!

I've been making some Prairie Cakes as well, although I've cheated and made them out of plaster of Paris. (see pics above) which I gave a coat of burnt Umber and after that dried, I covered it in PVA glue and then rolled them in some ground spices.
I'll be making those Prairie cakes til the cows come home I think as J bought me a 5 kilo bag (and I'm not even 1/4 through that! So anymore Prim ideas to use the plaster for, let me know!)
After the glue is dry you spray it with some Acrylic Sealer.
J said the cakes looked good enough to eat, I sure hope he can resist the urge to bite into one! Or I'll be using the Plaster of Paris to make him some new teeth LOL

Glad to have you back on the blogging scene - I've missed you!
