TMI Tuesday: How Creative Are You?

Castle Cake

Today’s TMI Tuesday was inspired by Dominic Wilcox Variations on Normal and from questions submitted by Virtual Sin. Both men are brilliantly creative.

 1. Have you ever had an idea for an invention that you thought would be commercially viable? Care to share a brief synopsis, photo or sketch?
I haven’t really. Most of my ideas for inventions would probably never get off the ground.

2. Visual arts: Do you do any painting or drawing? Are you a photographer? Sculptor? Ceramist/potter? Silversmith or other? Share one of your favorite works with us, post a photo.
I love to draw and paint – I probably draw more than paint, as it’s easier to sketch something anywhere and flesh it out than it is to get busy with paint and a palette. I love to take photographs, although they’re mostly spur of the moment and not planned photos. I’ve done some sculpting and made some pottery as well, but not enough to make a career of it.

3.?a. Do you write fiction? Poetry? Share with us by linking to your work.
I do write fiction (both erotica and horror), and I also love to write poetry. I don’t have any up on my blog currently though, sorry.

b. Do you make up plots, even if you never write them down?
I’ve done this on occasion, but usually I’ll write them down so I can try and use them.

4. Do you write music? Do you sing or play a musical instrument? An audio clip would be nice :)
I don’t write any music, and I don’t sing well (although I am known to belt out tunes in the car or the shower). I play a few instruments for fun: piano, violin, and guitar.

5. Do you write computer programs? What do you like most about that?
I don’t write many programs any more, although I used to fiddle with writing games. I mostly code web pages, which can be fun, but challenging.

6.?a. Do you have a hobby that involves making something? Examples might be woodworking, baking, sewing, etc.
I dabble at sewing and making quilts, mostly from my original designs. I also love to make chocolates and cupcakes. Cakes sometimes too. Cupcakes are probably the most time consuming, but they are a lot of fun to decorate.

?b. What is the last thing you made?
The last things I made were holiday filled chocolates in candy boxes, and chocolate covered Oreos.

Bonus: What is it? How would you use it? Write a caption.

Well, I know what it looks like….but I think it’s really a zucchini. I would slice it up and use it it in a salad, or fry it up with butter and top it with parmesan cheese.

Peni-Pan Fun!

Last week I got this great cake pan to review.  It’s the Peni-cake Pan from Cal Exotics.  This thing rocks!  My review follows, but I wanted to share some of the cool treats I made this week.

First, I made Jello.

The green one is Lime with some Schnapps added for a Jello shooter.  The fleshy colored one is peach Jello with a bit of cream.  Some whipped cream completed the desserts.

Next, I baked a cake.
Well, actually, 3 cakes.  A standard cake mix makes enough batter for three.

These were fun to decorate!

I made a blue one:
A purple one:
And a “realistic” one just to show what it would look like.
Here’s all 3 together:
This was fun!  The cake pan is versatile, and great for baking “gag” gifts!

And now for the review:

The Peni-cake pan is great for those times you need a penis-shaped dessert. It is lightweight and cleans easily. The pan is versatile and can be used to mold Jello, cake, or any other mold-able food into a work of penis art.
Need to bring a dish to that bachelorette party? Want to make your guests laugh with a naughty dessert? Just want to make something fun? The Peni-Cake Pan from Cal Exotics is for you! This baking pan will mold an over-sized penis out of the food of your choice for a unique and risqué dessert.

The pan comes in a plastic bag with an informational header stapled on top, and information for registering it online. The pan itself is a lightweight, dark metal, and is perfect for making Jello, brownies, cakes, or other items that can be molded. It is non-tarnishing and dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.

The pan is 11 1/4″ long, 7 1/4″ wide at the base, and 3 1/2″ wide at the tip. The inner mold dimension is about 10 1/4″ long, with a ball width of 6 1/2″ and a shaft/head width of 3”. The pan is approximately 1 1/2” deep.

A standard small Jello packet (2 cup size) fills this mold just right – up to about 1/2″ from the top of the pan. You can spray the pan with a non-stick cooking spray (unflavored) so the penis slips right out of the mold, or you can run it under hot water for a few seconds to loosen it. As Jello, the penis is rather flexible, and can be arranged with a slight left or right bend if you prefer that to straight.

A box of cake mix will make 3 full penis cakes. That’s a lot of penis! The pan should be filled about 2/3 full, and the cake will rise to the top of the pan. Baking time for the cake is about 22 minutes. Spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray before baking and when cool the Peni-cake will slide right out of the pan with no sticking. Once cool, the cake can be frosted in the manner of your choosing. Coconut flakes or grated chocolate can be used to accent your creation.

This is a great novelty pan for those times when you need to have something shaped like a penis or just want to have some fun in the kitchen.

Experience
My husband laughed when he found out I got this, and asked what I was going to make first.
“Jello”.
“What flavor?” he asked.
“Lime.”
“What’s it going to be, a Hulk penis?” he asked.
Well, it did sort of look like one.
I substituted schnapps for some of the water to make it a Jello shooter. Definitely good!

I did another one with peach Jello and cream for a more realistic look.

Making the cakes was a lot of fun, although I was surprised how many a box of cake mix made! I was expecting 2, but I got 3 out of the mix without skimping the batter.

The cakes were fun to decorate. I made a blue penis, a purple penis, and a more traditional pink penis. I used white coconut flakes for ball decoration on the blue and purple cakes, and coated the coconut with chocolate for decoration on the pink cake. Grated chocolate would also work well.

I have made cakes in this pan a few more times, as well as brownies – they are seriously fun and funny to make and give!

I have a friend who about died when she got hers. After she got over her laughing fit (I made her a bright lime green-frosted cake one – she loves aliens), she asked to borrow the pan. She’s had it for a while now, and I hope she’s happily baking!
