Sewing Box Cake

Once again it was time to celebrate the birthday of another scrapper at The Memory Shed at 2nd Cup.  We celebrated Hayley’s birthday on Wednesday with a cake and the usual array of presents.  Hayley loves colour and drawing and basically doing anything crafty.  She has a great knack of matching bright and wonderful colours in any project she does and is brilliant at whatever craft she tries from mosaicing to scrapping, drawing and painting.  We brainstormed and came up with the idea of a sewing  box cake for Hayley to celebrate her birthday.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          


I made a round cake and a small rectangular cake for the sewing box.  I used a chocolate transfer sheet to finish off the top and sides of the box which was not easy but the end result was edible and effective (note to self I need to practise this technique!)  I made a little sewing spool and needle from sugarpaste and then added a number of pink and green sugarpaste rosettes with different centres.  Hayley is brilliant at sewing her own unique rosettes so these were a tribute to the one she makes.  We had great fun celebrating with you Hayley and hope you did too.
