Hi. Is there any way you could make the picture larger? It's really hard to see. Sounds interesting. Thanks.

Thanks for the compliments!  I was at a friends 50th birthday party last summer. She had a fabric birthday cake hat.  I've never seen one before, and thought I could re-creat it myself in crochet. I'm glad you like it! Grin
