Eating Crow

 I have an extra-special recipe today for everyone.  It is guaranteed not to add any calories to your diet.

It is eating crow!


One tarnished silver cake stand
One long piece of black tulle
One piece harlequin/brown paper
Two feet harlequin ribbon
One raven (or crow whichever is handy)
One glass cake dome

 The raven has to be able to play dead to achieve the perfect dinner proportion.

My raven is playing the part of the crow and allowed himself to be stuck to the cake stand with glue dots.

You can tell he has aced many method acting classes - he certainly appears to be dead!

 The cake dome is placed on the stand and tied with the black tulle.  A bow of the black and gold harlequin ribbon is tied to the knob on top.

 The tag is stamped with the Nevermore stamp and attached to the knob also. 

A close up reveals the true beauty of this dish.

Crow elegantly under glass.

Ready for all with regrets to eat crow.

No calories - I promise!

 See his other raven buddies.

Caw, caw - there is the song I love so much.  My ravens are calling.  How many projects can I produce?  Well, not that many more.  The Dollar Tree has run out of ravens! And I refuse to pay more than a dollar for them!

See y'all!

  1. This post is great!! So clever! Never thought I'd want to 'eat crow', but I love this crow :)

  2. Ha! You are too funny! That is the most elegantly presented dead bird I've ever seen. I think I might even be up for a serving. Heaven knows I probably need a bite or two, but not much more of course. I hope they restock or you find another dollar store. I'd love to see what else you might find to do with them.

  3. FUNNY - then I remembered that movie...
    Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. Yikes! That crow was not presented nearly as elegantly as yours, though.
