This month my DD celebrated her birthday.  She asked me very politely if she could have two cakes this year.  A cheese cake and a....Holly Hobby cake just like I made her when she was 3.  Well, that gave me about 6 hrs to bake, cool, decorate find my well hidden tools and find something big enough to hold it.  Here is the result.  I didn't find anything big enough to hold it so I put foil on my kitchen wagon...Well it worked.


Oh, BTW, did I mention that my little baby celebrated her 25th?
It's been about 20 yrs. since I've done this cake but it was fun.

You did a great job (especially given the time constraints).

And btw I think that's a great 25th birthday cake  Grin

What an incredible (edible) gift! And it is so pretty.  Smiley From the picture the flowers look amazing.

I recall how popular Holly Hobby was, too. It is so sweet your daughter remembers the cake, and wanted you to make another. Smiley

I love that cake!  I am 32 and grew up with Holly Hobbie too.  I even have a photo of me at 16 mos wearing Holly's dress (one of my older sister's stole it from their doll).

I would love a Holly Hobbie cake.  You did a great job.

Thank you all.  I didn't realize how popular Holly Hobby was.  When she was born we were all in love with the Little House on the Prairie on tv...she was supposed to be a boy and surprised us all when she came out a girl so of course I went all out.lol.  My Mom sent me yards of Holly Hobby fabric and I made her curtains, bed spread, sheets...oh it was fun. (poor kid)  My best friend even sent her HH outfits.  Thanks for sharing you guys!!
Of course, I still need to learn to take better photos.

Thank you Kaissa.  I'm glad it brought back nice memories for you.  It was quite a "blast from the past" for me.

I did a double take when I saw this- we have that pan too!  I don't think my mom ever actually made one up though.  I love it!!  Maybe I will make one up sometime too.  Smiley

Hope you do make one, sparrowowl.  If I'd had more time to do this one, I would have enjoyed it more...and maybe even done the decorating better.  Don't tell anyone but I didn't even have time to decorate the sides of the cake.  The worst part was getting the marg. into all of those nooks and crannies.
