Baking with Violet

Baking with Violet

This is my June 2009 entry for ChristyNelson's craft challenge.

Violet loves to bake cakes. Since it is June she decided to make a wedding cake.

I used the box as the main form for the cake.

The toilet paper tube is the base of the round cake. I used the flower petals to line the cake plate.

The beads are used as a decoration on the cake and also as Violet's necklace.

I took the wire out of the ribbon and used it for the waistband and tie of the apron.

These were the supplies that were sent to us. At first I thought the toilet paper tube was there for shipping purposes but then I read it on the list of supplies.

I made a basic doll using a flower flannel that I had left over from my granddaughter's pj's. The purple and blue are from hand dyed sheets that I had left over. I used the beads as a pearl necklace 'cuz who doesn't do their baking wearing pearls?

I think the cake came out so cute :)

That's adorable! I love it. Too bad the cake isn't edible. I'm hungry.
