For Alie...A Green Lemon Cake n Treats by theresahelmer For Alie...A Green Lemon Cake n Treats by theresahelmer
Alie left us on Feb 17th, 2014! I hope where you are now knows no pain....




:bulletgreen: :icongryffgirl: posted a journal Happy Alie Day!Today, January 21, 2014 is Official Alie Day in honor of :iconwhisperwings:.  In her honor here are some of my favorite green images as well as some of my observations on life.  I love you Alie.  Even though you are young you are wise, wonderful, and will always be a muse and inspiration to many! :iconlovejadegreenplz:

Over the years I have discovered that real heroes and heroines do not just exist in comic books and fairy tales.
Hulk vs. Harry Potter by RockyDaviesSpockKirkGL by AllOutOfBubblegumPeter Pan- Stubborn Boy by twinfools
We can all be them, not only through selfless acts of kindness and friendship, but also by creating out own wonderful stories in our lives.  It is all how we choose to live our lives.  So...
Even if you are not royalty, know that you are royal inside.  Live life like your own fairytale!
Green Whisper by WhisperwingsThe queen of time and space by Annie-Bertram:thumb
 a day ago. Alie :iconwhisperwings: is 25 and regrettably she has stage 4 liver cancer. Upon reading up her journal postings, i was touched by her positive spirit...But how i wept for the unfairness of her illness. Won't you stop by and say hello to Alie :heart: Let her know we are here to support her...

:bulletgreen: i made the "green theme" lemon cake and candies JUST for her (little birdie told me her favorite color is green). This is a lemon cake mixed with three different shades of green. The cake is in bite size for easy eating.

:bulletgreen: The lighter green bunnies were made with white chocolate (with green food coloring). The rest were also made with freshly squeezed lemon juice mixed with plain gelatin (my favorite) and lastly green fondant hearts for decoration.

:bulletgreen: i was able to cut the cake into 40 small squares and i made a load of the yummy candies. On behalf of Alie, i donate the entire baked goods to a local senior center.

thank you very much! i presented them in the way that were easy to consume...i know when i was ill, finger foods were always so much easier to eat...(plus the nice seniors, they liked the ideas as well)...

i know she could not eat the cake and treats, but i envisioned if she did...

Such a kind heart you have to do this for a friend (:

On a side note: any tips on how to get your little chocolates so smooth? I often get little bubbles in mine :(

Thank you very much, I wish I could call her a friend, maybe one of these days...never say never right ;p I was touched by her upbeat spirit...it can't be easy, can it?!

Now the chocolate, a few tips: tap really hard on a hard surface (your kitchen counter) to remove air bubbles & my personal experience when working with chocolate, that chocolates are generally really giving when remove from molds, but if you still wish to make sure, spray the molds first.

We need more people like you in the world. Showing such kindness to a person that isn't even your friend, at that. Your work and actions are inspiring, to say the least.

And thank you for the tips, I shall try them next time (:

Wow.  What an amazing and inspiring person, and what a wonderful idea!  Just... wow.  People like her are so inspiring and... just amazing.  And I think it's so nice of you to do this for her, and for the people in the senior center.  I think it's important to treasure those in our lives, and to show kindness and love to everybody, especially those who are going through times that can be dark and difficult.  Thank you for sharing this with us.
