Just for fun.

Just for fun this week, i decided to play around with felt foods again. Sage plays with her play kitchen and pretend foods so much that i'm constantly inspired to make her more. While browsing a toy website i came across a really cute stacking cake toy. So of course, i had to make one.


i was some what limited in my felt supplies, so this didn't turn out exactly how i was hoping. i would have liked the center to be a darker pink, and a bit larger. i didn't have quite enough felt to make it the size it needed to be, and i don't like the color much. However, we are snowed in once again, so i didn't have the option of running to the store (not like i ever do, living this far out) and i wasn't feeling particularly patient. So i went ahead and made it using scraps i had available. The cakes are removable, and stack on the candle...like those classic stacker toys.


As soon as i finished up the cake Sage requested a cupcake. So i did a quick search to get some ideas and came across this tutorial. i need to work on my icing a bit, but it turned out cute enough. Sage loves it and gave me a great big "Thank you mama!!" The cupcake tutorial, led me to the poptart tutorial...and of course, i had to make one of those too. :)


The poptart is by far, my favorite, even though those sprinkles took about an hour to sew on. :) It had strawberry filling (yes, i really put red felt inside). hee hee. i may have to make another.


Sage spent the day putting together a tea party, with her felt cakes and treats. After a while, she found a new use for them. She is dressed with felt cakes and a donut on her wrists and ankles. She is the Sugar Queen. Her words, not mine.

  4. Thank you. i just picked up some new felt, and am planning to re-do the center ring of the cake. SAge loves it as is...but the purple ring seems really out of place to me.
