Roberta Writes – Sunday Stills: Out of this world and a new fantasy story on Vocal

Terri’s prompt for this week’s Sunday Stills is as follows:

This week’s Sunday Stills theme is “out of this world” which can be described as something extraordinary looking, food that tastes super-delicious, or things that might look otherworldly. My examples show images depicting things that are odd, cosmic, celestial, or a bit alien. Many are from my archives and have been shared before.

This prompt fits in beautifully with my new children’s book idea. Dinah in Chocolate Land is about Alice in Wonderland’s cat, Dinah, and her visit to Chocolate Land where meets several cats, all of whom have unusual adventures.

You can read the first chapter, Down the Rabbit Hole, on Vocal here:

I must admit I am delighted this Vocal challenge came along as I’ve been meaning to start writing this new book for some time. This challenge gave me the inspiration to get started. The story will include a selection my my cake and fondant artwork which are all ‘out of this world’.

The Chocolate Land characters are also ‘out of this world’. Below are Sir Chocolate and the Roundy Twins, Professor Smartie, Sylvia the Alien, the Man on the Moon (made of cheese), four Moon Babies, a surprised Taylor Red, and on of the Nougat Clowns.

Here are a few of the Chocolate Land Homes:

I made Greg a hummingbird cake for his twentieth birthday last weekend. I used a new marbled cream cheese icing technique which came out very well.

Have you read The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham? If not, you can find out more about it in this post I wrote for Barbara over at Book Club Mom blog:

I think I have a triffid in my garden – EEEEKKKK!!!!

In early December last year, we had a hailstorm which was out of this world.

  1. Oh my gosh, Robbie, how cool is this? I love the idea of the story about Dinah and her adventures–so creative!! Your fondant characters, especially the moon babies, Sylvia the alien, and the man in the moon are so perfect for the Sunday Stills theme this week! The creations are so cute and detailed. Applause, applause!
