Challenge #16 Reminder - What's Quirky Cooking (with ribbons, twine or lace)?

Here is your reminder to enter the challenge with your foodie makes, and please include ribbon, twine or lace. Any food that is to be prepared, cooks, food that is ready, barbeque images - that sort of thing will do.

Here is a cute video to get you in the mood!

This yummy 'Cake' image had me thinking of summertime stawberry shortcake!

For this week reminder, I made a cupcake house. I hope all of you can smell the delicious cinnamon roll that is waiting for me inside the house. All my craft room smell like heaven :o)
To embellish my cupcake house I used the lovely Cookn mouse from our sponsor Robyn`s Fetish. I colored the mouse with Spectrum Noir Pens and and a beautiful ginghan ribbon for a final touch.

Kemly - has a blackout but will be along as soon as she can.

This week I decided that cooking bookmarks would be good, I always want to keep the page on more than one recipe so I can go back to them quickly.
I cut some tags with a Bigz Tim Holtz tag die in brown bazzil card and in patterned paper and stuck them together. Each one has ribbon along the bottom, and tied in the top.
 First tag features The Cook, who is cooking in her slippers. I added cupcake and gingham ribbons, both from Crafty Ribbons.
 The next tag features Cookn Mouse, again with cupcake and gingham ribbons from Crafty Ribbons.
 This tag features My Little Cook, with macaroon and gingham ribbons.

Final bookmark featuring Cake, and Everything Stops for Tea ribbon.
They all fit neatly into the recipe scrapbook which I made last week, and have now completed.

Kemly joined us a little bit later due to a blackout in her area.

My mother taught me to cook. This project remind me all the secrets and recipes I learned from her.
I used  the digis "The Cook" and "Cake" provided by our sponsor Robyn´s Fetish.
