Tinkerbell Cake

I made something!


A friend of a friend ..... needed a cake made for her daughter's fourth birthday. I came up with a few ideas, trying to keep them uncomplicated. She opted for the more traditional nine inch round cake with decorations. I thought it would be simple enough, but it always ends up taking me way longer than I anticipate. I wish I could go to a professional cake decorating class by Debbie Brown or Rebecca Sutterby so I could learn some techniques like how to get things to stay glued on. I could never be a cake decorator -my time to money ratio is kind of ridiculous. But here it is. Monkey Pants now wants a Tinkerbell cake for her next birthday too, of course. I need to wake up early tomorrow to make sure she's not eating the mushrooms off of it. (It's happened before).

  4. That is quite fantastic!

    I found yours while searching for ideas for mine. Yours was the only one that I clicked on to get a better view of.

  5. Beautiful cake! My friend's daughter just asked if I would make her a Tinkerbell cake for her birthday, so I'm browsing around to get ideas. This is one of the best ones I've seen. Wonderful job!

  9. Thank you. I got the Tinkerbell in a package with all the fairies at the Disney Store at the mall. (The Tinkerbells I found at Walmart or other stores were cheaper quality with acrylic hair or clothes which I think looks kind of tacky on a cake and not quite food safe. I wanted the Tinkerbell to be all plastic).

  10. Love it! My friend's daughter has asked for Tinkerbell this year and knowing her, it will be a small party. Your design is simple looking (although I know the time you put into it says otherwise, lol) and small enough to work. Thanks for the inspiration and beautifully done!

  13. That's gorgeous! I love the flower - you made that too? I make cookies and cupcakes for others and my time to money ratio is also pretty sad. I usually end up working for $3-4 an hour by the time I finish!

  14. My daughter saw this cake and now she is wanting it. Are all of the decorations made of fondant. Did you have to buy a lot of products to create the decorations?

Emmeline Apron 2

Just got done with this one. Another Emmeline Apron for a Christmas gift. I wanted to try something different with my choice of fabrics this time, although not too different since they are still Amy Butler prints. I chose some darker blue fabrics from the Daisy Chain (Aquatic) line that I wouldn't normally be drawn too. But I'm glad I did. I really like the result.

This time, I did a few things a bit differently. One thing about the pattern I'm not fond of is the wordy, yet poor instructions on how to place the waist straps onto the sides of the apron at the right angle. I really don't know why the correct angle isn't just printed on the pattern. So to minimize the trial and error approach encouraged in the pattern instructions, [TIP:] I laid out the fabric and the strap as it would appear once constructed and simply marked a line on the strap corresponding to the angle of the apron. Then, I flipped both apron and strap layers over together; lined up the strap with …

Face painting

For my daughter's upcoming birthday party, I decided I might try my hand at face painting. I collected some photos from the internet I liked, check out a book at the library, and bought some face paints at the party store. The face paints are not very cheap but cheaper than hiring a face painter, right.


Here's a couple of the faces I've tried so far. Now if I can only get my face painting time down to ten minutes from twenty minutes a face for the party. I think I may have to enlist a volunteer to help out too.


The painting part is actually much easier than it would seem. The only thing that makes it challenging is that the canvas is constantly moving around (at least my canvas). It's not too hard to wash off, but the black takes a bit more scrubbing as the paint is grease or oil based. It makes for a fun activity especially as it gets too cold to go outside. My 3-year old thought it was "amazing" when she looked in the mirror. I even talked my husband in…
