Felt Food Friday - Birthday Cake

A cake was the first thing I made from the Dude's felt food pattern (Simplicity 2445) and oh boy, was it awful.
Felt doesn't really hold the shape of a cake very well, and my skill at sewing curves was non-existent. Not to mention, apparently I thought only the tops of cakes got iced. (Who skimps on icing, seriously?)

In honor of his seventh(!!) birthday today, I remade his cake.
Stiff felt does a wonderful job holding the shape, my curves aren't perfect but they're a whole lot closer, and the icing is in the proper place. I was going to decorate the top, but he told me roses are for girls.

And just like that, he is seven.


  1. Great job, and how cool to be able to see progress that you have made....LOL about the roses!!

  2. heehee....I love how you write - makes me smile. And happy for the new cake for such a special occasion! Hope you all have a fantastic day!
