Let them eat cake, cake and more cake!

You know how we love to bake in the kitschen! Well, what better excuse than Grandma's birthday?!
The beautiful boy did his usual exceptional work taking charge of the decorating!
In celebration of spring and Grandma's love of all things blue and white, I made a little cushion...
...using this piece of vintage embroidery from an old tray cloth. Forget-me-nots and Primroses.
Not to be out-done the beautiful boy made daffodils. Can you tell which are the real ones?
And with spring in the air there was kissing in blue and white too...
And as if all that were not enough excitement, a shared birthday week meant more cake for a much loved little cousin too! Hurrah! Cakes for everyone!
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend. Back to school on Monday and I must get myself straight back into the workroom! Much going on in the coming weeks. New and exciting projects underway, but more on that later. For now I have one more day of half term to enjoy with my boy.. and catch up on homework! Now, exactly how far away is the moon.....?? t.x

Wow that cake is just gorgeous.
I've not seen any finer in expensive stores - and it has that handmade stamp of approval too.
A talented chap.

oh Grandma's going to be thrilled with her wonderful cake & gifts!!!
happy birthday to her and little cousin - Enjoy your weekend!!!

if it helps you spend more time with your boy and less time do home work the moon is about 250,000 miles

That's the most fab cake!! I love the cushion too ;-)

Floss said...

What great cakes, and a lovely use for the vintage embroidery. I've been collecting French embroideries for a while, even the stained ones, because I can cut them up and do something with the good parts. I'll remember your cushion when I'm looking for inspiration.
