Awesome job Dawt - I agree that cake decorating can be a lot of fun. You know, I think we fall away from it because you really don't NEED to decorate a cake - c'mon it's cake it will be awesome plain - but it is just so darned creative to start thinking about what you can use, like spaghetti noodles. 

Thanks SO MUCH, longtimegeek! I agree with you about us thinking cakes are just fine undecorated. I think that comes from having too much on our plates and constantly finding ways to cut corners, and unfortunately, it usually means the fun part is the first to go. And I have no idea where the spaghetti idea came from, but it just goes to show that when we take time to do something fun like decorating cakes, it gets our creative juices flowing!

I want one! I'm a huge 'Wizard of Oz' fan (with a name like Dorothy, well, you know), and one of my most favorite parts of the movie are the ruby reds. "Just tap your heels together 3 times and say..."

Thank you for the inspiration to try something like this on my own!

I've never posted, only lurked, so here goes... My daughter told me I should post a picture of the chocolate cake I made for my husband's 53rd birthday, which was in December. Poor guy, having a birthday close to Christmas is no fun, so I try to make it extra special because of that. I hadn't decorated a cake in years and had forgotten how fun it could be! Here 'tis:

Teal is because he likes the San Jose Sharks. My daughter printed out 'Happy Birthday' because I didn't want to ruin the cake with my cruddy handwriting:


I have an unsteady hand, so I used uncooked spaghetti for the strings:


I used mints for the tuning keys, chocolate-covered graham crackers for the square pieces and a chocolate-covered Oreo cookie for the center hole. I love anything that sparkles, but I especially like red (love those ruby-red slippers from the 'Wizard of Oz' movie!), so I used red icing that shimmers:

How pretty! I especially like the little ruffle you added to the top, so feminine!

I love the idea of using pillow cases, so adorable! I have quite a few vintage cases I've collected over the years (many from my mom who's gone now), and the idea of being able to wear them like this, well, it's just neat-oh! Great tutorial, thank you for posting it!

How cute! Your idea would look great on those camisoles (the ones with the shelf bra) as well. Sometimes the most simple little thing can make a big impact and your little patches do just that! Wink

How ingenious, and oh-so cute!

One of my daughters had a few crocheted scarves she didn't know what to do with, so when she heard me whining about the breeze coming from underneath the back door, she whipped them together as you did, end to end. Now all I do is fold it in half, put it along the door and it works like a charm...AND it's pretty to look at, too!

I really like your idea, it's eclectic, like me. Wink

Great stuff! One of my favorite gifts when I had my twins was a pair of hooded towels, we used the heck out of them. I even brought them along when we went to the beach because when my girls put them on they could still use their hands and be wrapped in the towels without them falling into the sand. I'm sure your nieces and nephews will get tons of use out of them, nice job!

Very cute! What I like most about it is the flared hem and would even wear it myself, nice job!
