I made a snowflake this week, it's just that with the exam and everything, I didn't get it posted. Well, okay, I didn't even get it blocked, but I suppose that's minor. So here, utterly unblocked and perched on my awesome lime cutting board (Target Dollar Spot, baby!), is this week's flake, one day late:



Ah yes, the exam. Well, it's over! Not the best exam I've ever taken, but not the worst either. We'll see what the grading is like. Everything else is going really well this semester. Even if I do poorly on this one exam, it certainly won't be the end of the world.

Totally off topic: Have you had your Cadbury Creme Egg yet this year?? I have a long-held tradition of having one every year before Easter (I guess I just can't wait until Easter, once I see them on the shelves). One. Because one is about all I can stand in a year's time. They're good but, egads, are they sweet. Do they make anyone else's teeth hurt?

Mmmmm... Sugary fondant fake egg yolk...

Love the flake! Very nice. I have a thing for pre-blocked flakes lol ;)

Ooo, a sort of fractal flake at this stage. Nice.

Yep, teeth-hurtingly sweet. I usually manage a couple nonetheless. Last year Cadburys came out with Cream Egg bars over here. Much nicer as they had a higher proportion of chocolate to fondant. Alas, no sign of them this year.

Very pretty snowflake....though I must ask -- does this mean you are missing our winter weather? Glad your exam went okay and that you're having a pretty good semester...

Nice flake.

I usually have about 8 or 10 creme eggs. They don't make my teeth hurt, either. I guess I'm too used to sugar. Sigh, not good...

A fine, fabulous, freakin' flamboyant flake!!!! Lee wants to know what "asparagus & mayonnaise" is all about. The actual title, that is. It's something he doesn't think he would eat!!!!!!!!! (well, he concedes that perhaps inside bread...)

Impressive snowflake!

I always really want to like Cadbury Creme Eggs and try them again from time to time, but, sadly, they're never quite as good as I want them to be.
