Our project: Indian runner ducks

Our project: Indian runner ducks

This is our project from this year. We decided to have very interesting pet. And that's indian runners. Indian runners are special breed of domestic ducks. They stand straight like penguins and they run.They also lay eggs. Some people have those animals instead of dogs ;). They are also very smart.
We decided to do the house for the duck from pallets. We watch some videos on youtube and make a great little house.

 Picture 1: This is the house made from pallets, it's also isolated.

 Picture 2: Around the house we used the net to keep them safe.

 Picture 3: This is a smal pool for the ducks. For the indian runners it's enough to have water in a  container. They have to wash their heads. They actually don't need water to swim like other ducks.

 Picture 4: Those are about 1,5 old indian runner ducks. It takes them some time to get real feathers.

Picture 5: Here are about 4 month old. They are pretty big. On the picture there are three male indian runners (on the right) and one female (left).

Indian runner ducks are great and really interesting to watch. We have them in our whole garden. They can walk anywhere they want. They are really good for bugs, snails and they don't eat vegetable from garden. 

We actually wanted a dog, but for the dog you need time. This is a great alternative if you want a pet, but don't have a lot of time (job, small children,...).

Farm birthday cake

My first birthday cake

This year I decided to make a cake for my sons birthday. Because he loves everything about farm, animals, I made him a farm cake. I went to the store to buy animals from marzipan, but I came home empty handed. So I decided to do those figures by myself. I bought marzipan (beige colour) and fondant mass (red, blue, green, black) and create farm animals. I made marcipan/fondant pig, cow, ducks, sheep, little ladybird.

For decoration of the whole cake I made different roses. I used plastic mould for the roses. It's great and very easy to use.
The dough of the cake: that's the recepie for the dough: http://www.kulinarika.net/recepti/5814/sladice/biskvit-za-torto-ki-nikoli-ne-pade-dol/

To translate, we need:
5 eggs
25 dag sugar
25 dag flour
1 baking powder
1 dl water
1 dl oil

Whippe egg yolks and sugar, add water and oil and then flour with baking powder. At the end add egg whites (whipped). Bake 35 to 40 min at 180 °C. My cake was very big, so I made the dough from 3 quntaties.

For the filling: strawberries (I used strawberries from compot, because I didn't get fresh ones), bananas and creame: vanilla pudding and sweet cream.

I decided to make a grass on the top of the cake. I tried this recepie for homemade fodant. I wasn't so happy about it, because it easily melted  http://www.kulinarika.net/recepti/12042/sladice/ponarejena-ticina-masa/

Translation of the recepie for homemade fondant:
20 dag powdered sugar
20 dag milk powder
1 teaspoon oil
some cold water
food colour

The cake was a pretty big challenge, but I think I made it good.
Have fun and see you soon.

Advent wreath

Hello my friends!

It's the most wonderful time of the year and I want to show you my new creation. This is my Advent wreath. This year it's very natural. I used birch and spruce branches, cones. I used also gold candles and other decorations. I hope you'll like it. Have fun making your own Advent wreath.

Some history about Advent wreath:

In ancient Rome, people used decorative wreaths as a sign of victory. Some believe that this is
where the hanging of wreaths on doors came from. The origins of the Advent wreath are found in the folk practices of the pre-Christian Germanic peoples who, during the cold December darkness of Eastern Europe, gathered wreaths of evergreen and lighted fires as signs of hope in a coming spring and renewed light. Christians kept these popular traditions alive, and by the 16th century Catholics and Protestants throughout Germany used these symbols to celebrate their Advent hope in Christ, the everlasting Light. From Germany the use of the Advent wreath spread to other parts of the Christian world. Traditionally, the wreath is made of four candles in a circle of evergreens with a fifth candle in the middle. Three candles are violet and the fourth is rose, but four white candles or four violet candles can also be used. Each day at home, the candles are lighted, perhaps before the evening meal-- one candle the first week, and then another each succeeding week until December 25th. A short prayer may accompany the lighting of each candle. The last candle is the middle candle. The lighting of this candle takes place on Christmas Eve. It represents Jesus Christ being born.
