Yes, this is cake - not icing!
Its my birthday today, so Miss G and I decided to have a go at something like this!
We just added food colouring to a basic recipe, and it seems to have worked out okay!
I just need to find some authentic fabric that looks like this now!
In the mean time, here is my finished cushion from yesterday! I made it up as I went along. And would probably do it slightly different next time. But the folds sit fine, so thats the main thing!
By the way, its someone elses birthday today also! Jessi and I were pretty well matched with our Vintage Package Swap a few weeks ago - we have the same doily/vintage fabric obsession, our birthdays are on the same day and our husbands/partners have the same name too! So we've ended up carrying on the swap for our birthdays - thanks so much for all the lovely things Jessi and Happy Birthday!xx
