Last week I went to the library and found the book Pretty Party Cakes by Peggy Porschen. I'd never heard of her before but i'm so glad I do now! I really really really want this book badly and you know, i'm so lucky, because it's my birthday next month, I don't think i'll have to wait too long - yay!!!
Anyways, in the book their is a square present cake and that cake looked fantastic with a green ribbon and light and dark pink circles. I loved it so much that I made a similar smaller one for a family gathering. It was so funny when I lifted the cake out of the bag, there were a few Whaaaays and cheers going on!
My improvised bow. I made the bow in the book but hadn't let it dry long enough so when I attached it it completely caved in! Not sure about those curly ribbons though (another improvised idea of mine).
Tomorrow i'll post up the other cake I made! Yup, I made two small cakes for the gathering and tomorrows cake is my favourite.
