Fortune Cookie



Fresh from the kiln. When I was pondering what I could make in a cherry tomato color the other day, I happened to notice a fortune cookie fortune that we'd brought back from the local Chinese restaurant. Since red is the color of prosperity in China (I believe), I decided to make a Good Fortune necklace. This prototype fortune cookie is the first bead for the new piece. (Although, really, I suppose this is more properly a Chinatown necklace, since fortune cookies are an American invention.)

The kiln is wonderful by the way. Now I can properly fuse my PMC - calloo, callay!

I love fortune cookies! I tried to make some one christmas, and found all these odd quotes and printed them out for the fortunes. I never really got the hang of folding them though, it's hard! Well, the folding part wasn't so hard, it was more the folding of the hot flat batter. I think I needed a new technique. I would love to try again someday. I love those super gourmet fortune cookies, all dipped in chocolate and sprinkles!

Yum, I love those super gourmet fortune cookies, too! Those and Mrs. Prindables hand-dipped apples (which I guess are not made anymore - I think Affy-Tapple bought out the company). I'd never buy them full price, but when they went on sale after the holidays, I'd always indulge.

mmm...caramel dipped apples were my treat of choice on our vacation. There was this chocolate factory in Stratford, and they had the big fudge slab and these continuous fountains of caramel and chocolate for dipping things. You could watch in the window. I prefer a caramel apple with the works over ice cream or any other dessert anyday!

hungry...
