...I'd say she is going to love every bite!
When it came time to choose another project in the Blanket Statement/Blogging Challenge experiment, the "Pincushion Confection" on pages 16 and 17 was totally perfect to convert into a cake. Thank you, Vicki Haninger for yet another delicious project!Instead of placing pins in the cake, I made five felt candles and placed velcro on the bottom of each candle. Clear dots of velcro were placed on the cake top to adhere candles to cake.
I'm looking forward to "playing" birthday with Ellie and eventually sharing this simple cake with her. And when it comes to eating REAL birthday cake, you can bet that, as her Gramma, if she wants it before a meal instead of afterwards when all vegetables and fruits have been eaten, she will get it!! But...please don't tell her Mom and Dad, okay?
(Oh, and crafting the cake was made even more delightful when my sister and I had our very first condo craft time together. She was painting alphabet letters with the letters of her Grands' names.)
