I like designing my birthday cakes myself, like I did with Fern's My Little Pony cake earlier this year. But I was a bit stumped on what to do for Elliott... until I found a tutorial for this:
Birthday cake bunting!!
And now my cake design is clear in my head, and I am tres excited about it! I'm planning on making my own bunting and I'll be sure to share with you how it went next week when Im back from NZ and have access to my sewing machine again! But for now, I thought I'd share the tute I found on Twirling Betty (blog eye candy - beware) for anyone else who cares to give it a go! The instructions look super-simple and the cool thing is that you can then use the bunting as decoration afterward! Brilliant!
I bought myself a little set of letter stamps from Typo (I've been eyeing them off for ages) to print Elliott's name onto the flags with; I think I'll use black paint rather than ink. Not sure whether I'll ust use one colour of fabric or perhaps a mix? Back with the results next week!
