In the age where most gifts are easily and conveniently bought, I love it when someone hand makes something and gives it to Miss Baby as a gift. It just melts my heart to see someone cares enough to make something to bless Miss Baby in such a special way. Yesterday, Miss Baby received a package all the way from Asia, and in it among other things, was a felt birthday cake! The entire cake is handstitched by my sister. Isn’t it gorgeous?
I love how my sister did the piped icing on the cake!
The cake goes perfectly with my Lady Carlyle dishes. Would you join us for a piece of cake? Miss Baby has been asking, “Piece of cake, Mama”?
This has nothing to do with the cake, only the china. :) I love my Lady Carlyle pieces.
The porcelain blings proved to be too much for Miss Baby, and she had to have a part in my fake tea party. Here you can see her handling one of my precious Lady Carlyle for the very first time. No, I wasn’t too nervous as the Lady Carlyle pieces are still relatively easy to replace. :) See the bling she had draped over her neck? I promise you I thought I had put those bead necklaces up after Christmas…
And here Miss Baby proceeded to cut the cake with her toy knife, with the cutting side up!
Things went a bit chaotic after Miss Baby took an active interest in my staged photography session… you can see her dime-sized cup and saucer she insisted placing by my china pieces, and how she insisted on hovering in the background when I tried to capture a few last shots. Nap time was imminent, so we packed up our props, and went upstairs shortly after…
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have enjoyed our special cake as much as we have at the Ivory Spring household. My sister sent more felt food items. I will show you more as we go along. Have a great weekend, everyone! Blessings to you.
