        So if you read my previous post you mat have seen me attempt to do a hunger games cake and today or tomorrow i will give it another shot but this time with vanilla cake with pink food colouring so when you cut through the dark black fondant theres a hot pink cake hidden underneath.
If you would like to see my second attempt please comment.

Hunger games cake

so I attempted to make a chocolate covered in black fondant with a fiery coloured icing. The icing was used to spell out Girl on fire.
My cake didn't turn out the way i wanted it too but it also wasn't s a total failure:
First i used this chocolate cake recipe
this fondant recipe
and this butter cream icing recipe with red and yellow food colouring

and this is how my cake did turn out:

As you can see the cake is not covered in black fondant because my fondant dried out since i made it before i made the fondant before the cake and it dried out and this is how it turned out and you can see on top right corner i was practicing with the butter cream.

and this is how my apron tuned out x_x

Hope you guys try to do a hunger games inspired cake/food and if you don't forget to share.

So i made the popcorn yesterday it didn't turn out bad but it wasn't amazing but thats only because my friends came over and decided to take out half the butter and everything else fattening x_x and we only had powdered vanilla which i absolutely hate. Even though the was quite hypocritical since they came over with unsuspectedly with  burger king.I would say give it a go it wasn't that hard to make so don't worry and if it turned out pom with less butter than it should be good.

The Hunger Games,
I  finished reading the Hunger Games last summer and i have to say i am in love with the series. If you have not read the books at least read the first book before March 23rd that is when the movie will be out because a book will always be better then the movie.

First post and one written by a teen who is stressed at the moment

        Welcome to Lilac&Love a blog which will have posts about, well I still don't know. It might be about food, fashion, do it yourself projects or maybe rants about my daily life (there might be a lot of that). I am a teenager who currently is stressed about school, I am far behind on EVERYTHING and i do mean EVERYTHING. My friends want to kill me for being so lazy and so do I and now I am stressed about it and my lazy ass won't do anything about it. I see this rant has probably made you dislike me and think of me as a whining loser who will use this blog as a diary but don't worry i have a Twitter for that and is failing miserably at school but i assure you that you will love this blog (I HOPE). Its one in the morning where i am right now and i have school tomorrow... If you are under a lot of stress like I am at the moment maybe you can't hand things in by the deadline or you seem to have to be pulling all nighters every night or you find yourself the day before every test or deadline stressed or even just before any normal day what I'm trying to say that it will be worth it and its okay to have some fun and relax but if like me you have done a lot of that this school year and find yourself scared for your exams than first breathe second get everything organised and third start studying. which i will do tomorrow since its 1am i'm tired but not sleepy and if tomorrow night I end up without any work done you can scream at me at the comments below and i'll add you to the list of people who love me and want me to succeed in life and who also want to kill me for being so lazy, I have My IGCSE's in less than 8 weekend 4 coursework's due in about 3/4 weeks , wish me luck and good luck to you too.
