Pink Ruffle Cake

Looking for the Sew into Spring Link Party?  It's here: Party

My Daughter's birthday is tomorrow and so on Saturday we had a cousin, family party.  I started making fancy cakes like a flower, a carousel, a butterfly when she was two. It doesn't matter how bad they turn out I still continue to make them.  I am really pleased with the results of this years cake.  I write this like I was in a contest.  Maybe in my thoughts.  Anyway, I saw this cake originally posted on The Pioneer Woman and the true link is from I am Baker.  She bakes and does some cool things.  But when I saw this cake I think I may have drooled a little bit.

See...Drooling a little aren't you.  Anyway,  here is my creation.  I couldn't go down as far on the plate as I would have liked because my cake plate had a lip thing on.  It was pretty easy as far as cakes go.  The one thing I did learn is that you can't have a warm house or your roses slide off the cake and melt.  A little time in the fridge fixed that though..

Without further adieu....

It's Time to Party!

I am so excited.  April 15th has arrived and it is time to party!  I will be here and there posting some of the things I have been making for my kids.  I have had a few mishaps in my sewing lately but hopefully I can fix them and it won't be a big deal or noticeable.  So..without further adieu...

Here are the rules:

1.  Please use my button and post it on your site so we can spend the news.
2.  It must be a sewing item, preferably clothing but I am not going to be too picky.
3.  Please leave a comment on others items so we can all feel loved.

Let's Party!!

Okay, late time I talked about having a party.  Let's do it!  Here are the rules.  It will start on April 15 and run until May 15.  We are going to call it Sew into Spring.  Here is what it is all about.

I am on a limited budget and my kids need summer clothes.  So I decided that I wanted to make as many clothes for my kids without spending tons of money.  So all of you sewers out there, get on your sewing cap and start sewing.  You can sew, glue, refashion, upcycle, really however you want to do it as long as someone can wear it.  No pet clothes. 

Let's get started.  Ready, Set, GO!
