Recipe~~ 45 minutes, plus 4 hours' chilling

1 cup sugar 
5 tablespoons butter, cut into bits 
3 cups heavy cream 
8 ounces high quality unsweetened or bittersweet chocolate chips or chunks, about 1 1/2 cups.

1. Put sugar in a heavy pan, and turn heat to medium. When sugar warms and begins to liquefy, add 1/2 cup water. Cook, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, until mixture bubbles, then becomes foamy, then dry again. Keep cooking until it liquefies again, stirring often and breaking up any chunks that form. When it is all dissolved and brown, remove from heat, and stir in butter a bit at a time. Standing back to avoid spattering, add 1 cup cream, then stir until blended. Let sit until cool enough to touch.
2. Meanwhile beat remaining cream until it holds soft peaks; refrigerate. Melt chocolate over very low heat or in a double boiler or microwave.
3. Mix melted chocolate into caramel. Add 1/3 of the whipped cream to caramel, and stir to combine. Add remaining whipped cream and gently fold, just until combined. Pour into a bowl and refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.
4. Scoop mousse with a spoon dipped in a hot water. Serve alongside a piece of orange confit.

in like cooking and baking there are differences, in baking the balance must be just right, and in your art and sets you are the baker. Your balance of elements, shapes and colors all create a masterpiece that won't fall, come out lopsided or taste funny. Fashion is an art form and you match the 2 together as if they organically grew just like that, it's amazing, love it, leotajane

Style This....

Style This....

It all starts with that one item. That one piece of clothing, shoes, fabric, picture, jewelry, etc....that you are compelled to style. And when you do, it's magic! I will be hosting challenges where an item caught my attention...or yours (suggestions are welcome) and you will be asked to style it. Some challenges will be clothes only, while others will be whatever you like. This group is open to everyone! I look forward to seeing how creative we can be by styling that perfect item. Let's have fun!

The Big Picture

The Big Picture

For the most part I am an outfit only sets fan. But I do enjoy making sets with one large picture in the background. So I've decided to make a group for sets like this. I am NOT a fan of templates, or busy/messy sets with lots of pictures, text, articles, designs, etc. Minimal props will be allowed. All sets are welcome, but contests will follow the stated guidelines. Hope you enjoy this group!! Have fun!
