How to Make a Cornucopia

Nov 04, 2016

A cornucopia is an ancient symbol for abundance. Literally it translates from its Latin derivative as, “horn of plenty”. Today the cornucopia is most often seen decorating a Thanksgiving table overflowing with fruits and veggies like apples and pumpkins. Sometimes the cornucopia is made of wicker, sometimes it’s made of bread and at the best of times it’s made of waffle cone.

This cornucopia craft is made from breadstick dough- an easy ingredient you can find in most grocery store refrigerated sections. And the best part is, you can eat it when you’re done!

Supplies:

  • Aluminum foil
  • Tape
  • Baking sheet
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Refrigerated breadstick dough
  • Fruits and veggies- or whatever you’d like to fill your cornucopia with

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350.
  2. Depending on the desired size of your cornucopia, take a piece of tin foil and fold it in half. Mold the double walled tin foil into a horn shape.
  3. Using the clear tape, tape the pointed end of the horn so that it holds. Fill the horn with crumpled up tin foil, this will help the dough keep its structure. Make sure you bend the tail of the horn so that it looks like a cornucopia.
  4. Place the horn on a baking sheet.
  5. Beat the egg and tablespoon of water together to make the glaze.
  6. Take out the breadstick dough and wrap each long piece around the cornucopia starting at the pointed tip. Work your way down using the glaze as a glue to keep the breadstick dough together. You may need to pinch here and there so that there aren’t any open spaces.
  7. Pop your horn into the oven for 45 minutes. If certain parts get dark without the whole thing getting ready, put some tin foil over it.
  8. Let your cornucopia cool down then fill it with fruits and veggies or candy and sweets- whatever it is you’re thankful for. Don’t forget to eat the cornucopia!

Alright, I need to vent about something. In this one role-play called Logan: The Beast Unleashed, I have this one character named Aiden who is a former mercenary assassin. (I know, pretty dark. But just hear me out here.) Aiden went to try and convince Logan to come back, and pretty much failed. Going to Logan, Aiden killed 5 thugs that he came across that were going to do something pretty bad if he didn't do something first. At the middle of the time he had there, he killed a guy that was going to inform people about him which would be awful. A month later, Aiden received a letter. The day after, a guy entered the side street that Aiden lived in, giving Aiden the right to kill him. Then the leader said, "Can you please tone it down with Aiden's killing?" I kill 5 guys, then 1 more, and when I kill a 7th guy, I'm told to tone it down. First, he killed 6 people in one day. Then one month and a day later, I kill someone and then told to tone it down. How does he know whether or not Aiden had been keeping away from killing people? Meanwhile, his character Carl kills whoever crosses his path, just to get to a girl. Carl goes and kill countless people and when I kill a 7th guy, I'm told to tone it down. Carl doesn't seem to be much different than Aiden! If anything,  he should tone it down! I just can't believe it. 1 month and 1 day later, kill a 7th guy and then, "Can you please tone it down?" HOW ABOUT YOU TONE IT DOWN?! It isn't very logical to tell me to tone it down when he has so much more going on! Sure, a lot has to change so Aiden can work with the others, but I don't want to be told to tone it down when Carl can't tone it down! Why can't Aiden just continue on with his usual act and make it more fun and challenging for when the time comes for Aiden to cooperate with others? *sarcastically* IT ISN'T LIKE ANYONE IS BEING PRO-FAVORED HERE! Seriously, the leader makes it so much harder for me to really do anything and makes it easier for everyone else. I'M NOT EVEN THE VILLAIN! I feel incredibly disrespected when he constantly makes it so much harder for me. Sure, the challenge is fun sometimes. But if I feel like as if I can't do anything and make no progress, then how in the world am I supposed to have fun? Role-playing is for having fun. I don't want to leave, I just don't to participate in a role-play where I can't have fun.
