  1. I will second @MinaxUmbra and @Dilley88, my high score on Zurroball is still 1. I got that score after about three days during the last DD, so I have just decided to pretend like I get a free day and there is no game to beat as I prance around la la land!

    I'm not sure why I found this place

    I did not read this as insincere. Reading your post made me smile, and I needed that. Thank you for joining us :)

    New Lost Desert Map - Meet Xendrik

    I hopped over to look at the LD brushes, and I noticed that they do not list all of them. The Lutari is not pictured 😞 That makes my Lutari feel rejected. I keep telling him that he is just special, but he doesn't believe me! The acara, bori, bruce, draik and eyie arre just a few of the others that are skipped.

    Does anyone still play Ghoul Catchers?

    I stopped playing because it no stopped giving me neopoints for any given level after I played that level four times. Since a lot of the higher levels are, at least partially, luck based, I used to play the lower levels to get the max neopoints for the day then attempt the higher levels to get farther along. I can't get the "up to 50,000 neopoints per day" anymore, I hit a rut where I wasn't even getting 2,000 per day. I quit after about a month of that wonkyness.

    Mysterious Negg Cave Puzzle Solver

    I used to use the solver every day, but now I have pretty much gotten the hang of that negg. I have run across at least two puzzles that technically had two correct answers, which I double and triple checked to make sure that I wasn't seeing things.

    Ancient Neopian, but New to the forum

    @Spillmyh3art_xx Welcome! You are not the only stay at home mommy who uses Neopets and TDN for brief bouts of sanity 😄 I have three small ones as well, though I have boy girl boy. I am sorry to hear that you have medical issues that have made your life difficult. That's what your girls are for though, right? I hope that they can make you smile even if everything else has gone bonkers.

    My dog has done more damage to cakes than my kids, not to say that they are completely innocent. My dog has gotten up on the counter and eaten the batter out of the pans before I could get them into the oven twice, as well as jumped up and eaten the cakes as they were cooling on the table at least four times. My oldest son is four and he is the only one who has touched one of the cakes. He can open the fridge on his own, so he poked one cake that was waiting on a pick up once. Lucky for me they were late and I had ample time to fix the cake since it was technically only one of the added decorations that he mangled and not the cake itself. @Sarah_S this was my first time making something this size, so it was a huge learning experience. @jellysundae The roof, like the ninjas, dragon, and trees were made out of sculpting chocolate. It is the chocolate version of clay and was a lot easier to use than pulled sugar. I also did separate flavors for every color of chocolate. Red was orange flavored, white was plain white chocolate, black was milk chocolate, green was mint and pink was strawberry. I made a frame out of lollipop sticks for the shape of the roof and I used toothpicks on the bottom to get the edges of the roof to hold out. The river was made of blue sugar glass. I was super nervous that the melted sugar was going to run all over the board and not fill up the path that I made for it, but it seemed to want to do exactly what I wanted it to do :) @Kute Sculpting chocolate is just like clay, except that it can melt from the heat of you hands if you handle it for too long. It has been about ten years since I used clay, so it was very touch and go at first. Once I got used to the medium I would separate a ball of chocolate, shape a head then stretch out arms and legs. All I did at first was make the figures. I didn't take the time to pose them until I had finished a complete set. I actually made almost 50 figures, but the children at the party wouldn't stop touching them while I was trying to set it up. I just let them have whatever they played with since I wasn't going to feed that to anyone.

    @micheee yes, I will keep making regular cakes (single and two tier). I feel like I have a very long way to go before I can consider myself proficient. I am trying to decide what I want to do for the Halloween cake that I am going to make for the guys at my work (If you can call my 2 hour a week vacation from my kids work). I am thinking haunted house because I had fun with the roof on the dojo, but a spider web type also sounds like fun... We will see :)

    @micheee heck no! I seriously undercharged for that cake. If anyone else wants something like that prices start at 1,200. Yes, that is a lot, but it takes me a week and a half and costs me over 600 in materials. It was fun, but I also lost over 20 hours of sleep and I had to lock my children up in their room for almost an entire day so that they wouldn't mess it up. I felt like a terrible mommy because, even though I went back there to spend time with them, I couldn't let my kids run around the house. Plus, this cake was due on Sunday, then I had another cake that I had to make for Tuesday. I didn't take any pictures of the Tuesday one though. I was too sleep deprived at that point. @aleu1986 Thank you :)

    @Vlagopus - It took me about a week to make all of the pieces, and then another thirty hours to build it. @Kute The hard part was getting it out of the house. We couldn't fit it through the front door, so we went out a window. We transported it in the bed of a truck. I rode in the back with the cake. After we arrived I finished decorating it on site. I didn't trust the ninjas o dragon to stay on the cake while it was in motion. Here's a different picture where you can see one ninja who is kicking someone in the head, and another doing the crane. These two were my personal favorite little guys. I spent more time on the green ninjas because I didn't realize how long everything was going to take.

    Hey @jellysundae, @aleu1986, @Kute, @TokaValencia, @DragonPhoenix, @kristanoel, @Sarah_S, @Mouseykins, @Rayd1978, @emily_speck_15, @tk421beth, @hpb63094, @charelan, and @Aquamentis12! This is my most recent creation! I am having trouble figuring out how to post all of these images in one post. I do not want to double post, but TDN(or it could be my computer) won't let me add more than one image in this post...

    Happy Skeith Day

    The marble is SOOOOOO nice! I appreciate that they are finishing up the swamp gas so that we can just be done with it. Just finish out the brush and bury it on a deserted island inside of an active volcano with snot. I do like how they drew the sleeves rolled up like she is about to get down to business. I'm not sure why they gave the marble a double stomach though...

    @jellysundae I have no idea. I have always used marshmallows, but I don't think that that is the only recipe. Edit: I had to go to work in the middle of making the wonder woman cake. Nothing was put together yet, but everything was made. I came home from work to find a giant chunk missing out of one of the 8" cakes! My oldest son was completely honest about it though. As mad as I initially was, I didn't punish him at all because he didn't lie to mommy.

    It was a fudge chocolate flavor from a box. This was my practice cake so I was not worried about how it tasted. I did not have a chance to make the unicorn cake. I decided to wait until Christmas for the unicorn. I will most definitely post a picture for that. I am making a wonder woman cake tonight for a friend, hence the practice. I am going to make it a white cake for wonder woman because that is my best tasting "from scratch" recipe. Thank you! I wanted to practice with the wonder woman colors, so I went full American flag for labor day :) The recipe that I use is marshmallows, powder sugar and a dash of vegetable shortening. It starts out as white as white can get. I gave my kids the left over fondant and some cookie cutters to play with. It's just like play dough, but it's not toxic so I don't have to worry about my 1 year old having to make a hospital trip. I have never worked in a bakery. I have worked in several restaurants, but none of which made their deserts in house. I am self taught. I do not consider myself anything but an amateur. I do not have the confidence to not destroy someone's poor wedding cake. I would feel so guilty.
