Julie Picarello Polymer Clay Method

As I mentioned once before, Julie Picarello has a wonderful book out showing her method of Imprinting and accenting beads.  Her book is called "Patterns in Polymer" and you can purchase the book at your favorite clay store or on Amazon.  Here is a link to her
 flicker photostream  so you can see some of her fun designs.  And below is my first attempt at her technique.  I have a way to go, but it was fun trying.

Refreshing Lemon Jello Cake

I'm mixing up a recipe but it's not the polymer clay color kind.  This is a  recipe for a delicious Lemon Jello Cake.  This recipe is not new.  I remember having some back in the 1960's, and was delighted when I recently enjoyed it at a party I attended.  It only has a few ingredients, but the flavor is wonderful.  Yum!

Lemon Jello Cake

1 box of Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Cake mix (or any Lemon Cake Mix)
1 small box lemon jello
4 eggs
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup oil

Mix these together until smooth
Pour into 13" x 9" oiled and floured cake pan
Bake at 350 for 35 min.


2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice (or more as you like)
(You can also add some lemon zest if you like)

Mix this together

While the cake is still warm, make holes with a fork and then pour and spread icing on top.  Cool and serve.
