Beauty and the Beast Gifts for Women
I love me some Chris Hemsworth … seriously. He is coming back as Thor (be still my heart) and will face some serious challenges this time around.
I am totally digging every movie in the Marvel franchise and always make sure to sit through all of the credits so I can get a sneak peak at a future film. FYI: the DC comic movie franchise doesn’t do that and I wasted 5 minutes of my life after seeing Wonder Woman…
In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk!
“Thor: Ragnarok” is directed by Taika Waititi and returns Chris Hemsworth starring as Thor and Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Loki. They are joined by Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson and Karl Urban, with Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins.
Kevin Feige is producing with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee serving as executive producers. The screenplay is by Craig Kyle & Christopher Yost and Stephany Folsom and Eric Pearson. Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok” thunders into U.S. theaters on November 3, 2017 – mark your calendars!

Directions to make transfer
Locate the image of lightening McQueen’s eyes on google and print it out. Take your piece of paper and place on top of the image. Using a pen or pencil trace the image onto the white paper about 3-4 times 4 inches apart. Place the paper with the copies onto the cookie sheet.
Fit a sheet of parchment paper onto the cookie sheet and tape the edges so that you have a smooth flat area.
Using the standing mixer, combine the powder sugar, egg whites, cream of tarter and vanilla and mix on medium speed if the royal icing is still a yellow soup, add in 1/2 C powder sugar.
Continue to mix until you get stiff peaks. Evenly divide the icing into the five bowls,
- Add a few red drops into the first bowl and mix until combined.
- Add a few more drops to get the shade of red that you want
- Add a few blue drops to the second bowl
- Add a few yellow drops to the third bowl
- Add a few black drops to the fourth bowl
- Leave the white icing in the fifth bowl white
Scoop the icing colors into a piping bag. Using the black icing, outline the place lines on Lighting’s eyes. Using the red icing, fill in the top part red.
Using the white icing, fill in the bottom part white.
Using the blue icing, add two blue dots for his eyes.
Using the black icing again, add a dot into the center of the blue dot for his pupils. Using the yellow icing, below Lightning’s eyes on a empty space on the cookie sheet, pipe on 24 small yellow dots for Lightning’s headlights.
Using the black icing, pipe on 48 medium sized black circles for the tires. Set aside for 1 day to dry.
