to make them "brim"-like...
Rossija: Jean, what red is that?
DTIntermart: Women can be soooo unpredictable (
present company excluded)
Rossija: =))
stargazer_sbpcg: then i just put little leaves and
flowers on top of the "join" so you don't see it...

I got dressed for nothing..

the other day. she used the large "make up" lamp bulbs
for her shaper and screwed them into sockets and put
in oven to cure.
DTIntermart: Cal tht was pcajenny right...
pasadena_cal: right. forgot who.
Rossija: Pretty flower, Jean!
Rossija: Are those brown butterflies?
stargazer_sbpcg: cool, i've used Xmas bulbs to bake
lentils on also, but i like my wooden bead cuz it's
strong enough to sand on...
stargazer_sbpcg: well, the brown butterflies "used" to
be another cane...
pasadena_cal: right.
stargazer_sbpcg: Marie Segal showed me how to make
butterflies with canes...
pasadena_cal: They look golden.
stargazer_sbpcg: lemme find one and show you...
DTIntermart: I made a bacsket on one of those bulbs,
problem is they have to be broken to remove the
basket, gets messy & dangerous...
Rossija: COOL! I LOVE butterflies!
stargazer_sbpcg: well, just for fun...
stargazer_sbpcg: let's use the turtle cane... :)
DTIntermart: Marie dose some awsome work!1

it thinner and longer so i could roll it...
stargazer_sbpcg: :) yeah, gotta improvise so i can
DTIntermart: the roll ah... that's what I missed
stargazer_sbpcg: most of the pain is only when i'm at

the lighter tan color and keep it thinner than the
dough color. roll into log...slice and shape one side
to have the cinnamon roll a bit taller in the
center...brush somewhere with actual cinnamon if you
really want to drive them wild
