Realistic House Plant Cupcake by Alana Jones-Mann
Artist on Tumblr | Facebook 
Inspired by a gardening project, Brooklyn-based baker Alana Jones-Mann decided to make cupcakes that look like common miniature cacti. Using frosting, green food coloring and of course, baking talent, Alana successfully made a bunch of cacti cupcake cuteness and even planted them on soil (crushed graham crackers). These realistic cacti cupcake are made with such impressive details that some of them even appear sharp to the touch. If you like those edible cacti and want to make your own, head on over to Alana Jones-Mann’s blog and find the step-by-step tutorial.

for a guy who can really completely annihilate a whole bag of candy at one sitting I have a pretty low threshold for cupcakes - like, I’ll eat one, which is weird for me, I don’t eat one of anything generally - but CHECK OUT THESE WICKED-ASS CUPCAKES

Challenge accepted. Time to put my icing tips to good use.

WAITWAITWAIT
No.
These are fondant-based forms. All of them. I take it back.
Until I find a suitable alternative to *shudder* fondant these are no longer on my docket.

oooh this scene is tops this is one of the best scenes… i really love how this production devleops Hal in the Henry IV plays, like, unbelievably love it. the plays themselves are super ambiguous about Hal’s development into Henry V and whether or not it’s positive, and i’d say the presentation of him as an entitled shitty user, callously riding with people he thinks less of because of the fun they can show him, is played pretty strongly, but I also really enjoy how much it develops the corresponding fact of how much they use him as being their better. Like, the notion that Hal is degrading himself is itself pretty nasty towards them, but they buy into their class system as much as he does, and they revel in his lowering himself to their level - they do degrade him.  the series is very forthcoming about Hal’s nastiness to his friends - they certainly don’t deserve it - but he’s not stone-cold and impenetrable, and these moments are hurtful to him… and only strengthen his resolve to be what I can only describe as the worst dude.

whether or not you think he and Poins are probably banging - that is an undertone to this production like whoa - this moment is tense af not because of some deep sad heartbreak or whatever, but because of the combination of the power dynamic - how much Poins stands to lose, or pay, if he falls out of Hal’s favor - and the hurtfulness in which Hal confronts this guy with a point-blank question, “Have you been basically humiliating me behind my back in front of a bunch of other people?”, only to get a response which is obviously a lie.

I also get an addition gutpunch out of the line itself, ‘Must i marry your sister?’ because, as Poins’ response has to delicately dance around, wow, what an obvious big class distinction there, where the idea of marrying Poins’ sister is clearly a huge insult, the poor blameless girl. (And yeah, if he’s banging Poins he’s obviously banging Poins don’t lie, the direct line between what an insult it would be to actually think of marrying Poins’ sister, and that relationship, is another hurtful insult. WOW, this moment.)

Also i just love all the little details - Hal playing it off like it’s humorous just to get him to read it and then DROPPING the act instantly once Poins begins, Poins’ sudden forced ire at Falstaff (the tug of war going on THERE too like damn: Hal is upset because Poins’ swearing thusly is a huge betrayal, but here Poins saying this shit in front of Falstaff is itself an act of trust which Falstaff has just betrayed him in in order to squeeze closer to Hal) itself betraying the lie, the intimacy of the whole scene (i know people were like lol there’s no point to them being naked except fanservice!… no, there’s another point, sheesh) laying bare just how utterly isolated and unkind these people actually are however much they pretend to be friends, and the way that, afterwards, Poins knows, even if Hal deigns to laugh - which is itself Hal just suddenly controlling the situation, like Hal does at the beginning by pretending he might think this is hilarious - how badly fucked he is.

The fact that monarchy, and that whole class structure, is just a goddamn unnatural state of existence felt like a really strong recurring theme with this miniseries, and i goddamn loved it.

reblogging for commentary because HAHA YEAH

"All anime is the same"

Let me explain you a thing

a major catastrophe causes the brown-haired protagonist to join an organization with matching uniforms and characters of varying personalities, heights and sexual orientations that exists for a seemingly straightforward purpose while also struggling with a hidden aspect of their identity that can be helpful but also makes things complicated in unexpected ways

"Yes," said Eustace, "and whenever you’ve tried to get her to come and talk about Narnia or do anything about Narnia, she says ‘What wonderful memories you have! Fancy you still thinking about all those funny games we used to play when we were children.’ "

"Oh Susan!" said Jill. "She’s interested in nothing nowadays except nylons and lipstick and invitations. She always was a jolly sight too keen on being grow-up."

"Grown-up, indeed," said the Lady Polly. "I wish she would grow up. She wasted all her school time wanting to be the age she is now, and she’ll waste all the rest of her life trying to stay that age. Her whole idea is to race on to the silliest time of one’s life as quick as she can and then stop there as long as she can."

"Well, let’s not talk about that now," said Peter.

       

The one I wanted to throttle was Polly. Lucy is possibly young enough not to really get it yet but Polly was a grown-ass woman and should have known better than to talk that kind of shit about a young woman wanting to stop being a child.

Susan wanted to grow up. She wanted (as mentioned in ‘The Horse And His Boy’) to fall in love and get married. She worried, she protected, she mothered. And she was the only one, the only one out of all of them, who got it right. Aslan told them they had to move on. To grow up. To find him in their own world. 

Susan was Aslan’s big fucking success. The others couldn’t do it. They couldn’t take the lessons they’d learned in Narnia into their own world. They couldn’t make a difference there - no, they all spent their time obsessing with getting back. Narnia was heaven for them and they couldn’t function anywhere else, so Aslan took them back one last time to suspend them forever in the only world they wanted.

Narnia was not Susan’s heaven. Narnia was not what Susan wanted. Eternal youth and innocence was not what Susan wanted. Susan wanted to grow. Susan wanted to grow up. Susan wanted love, and family, and her own world. Susan’s heaven was the one drawn from Earth, from a life lived to the full.

Since I was a kid, I have always thought of ‘The Last Battle’ as a very sad story because it is ultimately a story of failure. All the ‘kings and queens of Narnia’ die and are brought back to the dying magical world because they couldn’t accept what Aslan had told them over and over about growing up and moving on. They weren’t supposed to come back. It was a final act of mercy that Aslan allowed them to do so, since they couldn’t bear to live in their own world.

I think Susan would visit them someday, with her queen’s crown and her blazing red lipstick and the lines of growth and character on her face, and very gently explain to the perpetual children in Narnia that she was thankful that Aslan hadn’t taken her with the others. That she was thankful for her children and grandchildren, for boyfriends and husbands, for a life that was full and happy and productive. That she never needed Narnia to be happy. That she missed them, that she’d mourned for them, but she wouldn’t change her own choice for anything.
