Moaning Myrtle is now ready for her debut appearance on Pimp My KitchenAid. What do you think?
I wipe Myrtle down with a damp cloth right away after every batch of buttercream, so I don't anticipate any problems with the polka dots on Myrtle herself. However, I'm not quite as optimistic about the dots on the hopper for the slicer-shredder attachment. I think that's going to need more cleaning than a damp wipe, so probably the polka dots won't last as long. But it's cute as all hell now!
I used a couple of different punches to get the polka dots. 1" EK circle, and a mini 2-in-1 punch from Recollections for the smaller dots. I'm generally pleased with how the punches worked on the contact paper, but the large punch didn't cut cleanly all the time, and I had to discard quite a few that were damaged.
No baking this weekend. I've been decorating Myrtle, and don't have it in me to do any cupcakes. Lemon cupcakes will have to wait. I think we'll live. :-)
