Galacon - Cannis 5th Birthday Cakes by StargazeAndSundance
Galacon - Cannis 5th Birthday Cakes
So, yeah, on july 30/31 once again the european My Little Pony convention GalaCon was held in Ludwigsburg, germany. Since it was the 5th birthday of the con and its mascot Canni I was honored to create a cake for that occasion. La la la la Each tier consisted of two layers soft and moist vanilla sponge filled with strawberry jam and a white chocolate butter cream covered in fondant. For the sugar ponies I had cutters made via 3D print. Everything but the sugar flowers and chocolate butterflies (those were bought) was handmade, even the fondant got its color by hand. Unfortunately I was only able to make a quick photo of the cakes back in the cold storage room. I was so excited to get on stage during the opening ceremony and cut the cake live in front of a 1200+ people audience; additionally it was streamed online!
The work and hours put into making the cakes totally paid off: all VIPs, sponsor ticket holders and most of the volunteers got a piece of cake and said it was delicious. I was so relieved after all had gone and no one complained. I think I've fainted.

Strawberry liquor by StargazeAndSundance
Strawberry liquor
Recently I got into making oils, liquor and schnapps. Before the season ended I wanted to make a strawberry liquor and man! It turned out good, totally yummy! Not too sweet but very fruity and best served cold. We gave away a small bottle of it to each VIP guest who visited GalaCon this year. Everyone appreciated it. <3

Read this: Art thieves, i am SO ANGRYSo someone contacted me that my art was being sold on Amazon without my permission, and i submitted a report to have it taken down. Well, Amazon has sent me an email that says the following:
Hello,
We decline your request to remove the listings at the end of this email.
We respect a manufacturer's right to enter into exclusive distribution agreements. However, we do not help to enforce these agreements. This is a matter between the manufacturer and the distributors.
Seller Performance Team

Amazon.com

Are you f-ing kidding me? :iconareyouplz:

Now this kind of makes me angry. It's not ok to submit a report, and the company to sent me a copy paste email that they won't do anything about it.
Here's my art, sold in 3 diferent places, in case you want to see it yourselves:
https://www.amazon.com/Moving-Castle-Customized-Rectangle-Mousepad/dp/B018JFJMII/ref=sr_1_53?ie=UTF8&qid=1472122863&sr=8-53&keywords=Howls+Moving+Castl


So in short, Amazon gives you a "eff you!" response, in case you get your art stolen and someone else makes a profit from it.
I mean, not only the seller on Amazon makes a profit, aye?

So much for that.

The dim upside of this: a handful of people took the time to 1-Star-rate the products and feedback a clear message: stolen content.

If this makes other people not buy cannot be said, nevertheless you can at least piss at the sellers' legs.

We'd like to ask of you the following:
- In case you spot art you know from elsewhere (especially deviantart and other pages where artists show their work), notifiy the original artist. It doesn't need a formal letter, just message a link, add something like "found this, is this legal?" and they will see for themselves.
- If you can shame the product/thief/etc., do so. Remain professional, just point out the facts (illegal act, stolen art, etc.), less insults means more credibility.

This will never stop, so we can't affort to stop either.

The end of this will be watermarks on everything. Because people will not stop sharing their art, which contains their passion.

If no one else will act sensible, please be the one to do so.

Thanks people.

Sincerely,
Sundance & Stargaze
