I finished Moss Creek Designs's "Julbock" from the 2004 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments mag:
Even though the twelfth day of Christmas is past, Christmas doesn't end until next Sunday, with the Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord. So I have a week to finish the last two ornaments I was determined to create this season.
Today was Three Kings' Day, so in a last-minute attempt to be festive I made a cake. The recipe was from Cocina Criolla, chosen because it called for guava paste, of which I had a lot in my fridge. Only, once I combined the ingredients I had a batter that was like a cookie dough -- stiff enough to roll out. Repeated reviews of the recipe and a couple of google searches did not reveal a mistake on my part or the recipe's, yet clearly something was wrong. Cake batters often have milk in them, so I added a half cup and an extra egg for good measure, and finally got something resembling cake batter.
The original recipe called for pieces of guava paste placed in the batter, with the baked cake cut so each slice has one piece, so I made cupcakes -- same idea, easier to execute. The paste sunk to the bottom, though, so I probably should have put it closer to the top.
I had leftover white frosting to which I intended to add orange extract (I thought it would go well with the guava), but that seemed to have disappeared from the cabinet. Instead I found rainbow jimmies, so I used that:
