Some 'sewing' or embroidery I guess!!

So, my newest endeavor...
Peekaboo convinced me to buy some pink rabbit fur, and she desperately wants slippers trimmed in it. She is actually due for some new slippers, so I agreed. I asked her what she wanted beaded onto her uppers......if you know her at all, you will have guessed....Ballerinas!
I tried to get her to agree to a pair of ballerina slippers with ribbons, or one ballerina leg....things easier to portray with beads-she wouldn't have it. So I decided that beading wouldn't do, and I am giving embroidery a try. I even bought one of those little hoopy things! I decided on denim for the uppers (canvas or stroud would have been too pale) and went with two slightly different poses for the ballerinas. I finished the second one tonight.

I think they look pretty darned good!!

Baby shower

A very last minute cake (about 24 hours!) I was asked if I could do a baby shower cake for a new little girl. I could have done a lot more, with more time...
Pink and white swirl cake with vanilla icing tinted pink. The onsie is fondant, with gel food colouring dots. The booties are also fondant. There are fondant pearls (white and pink) around the border.

100th day of school cupcakes

We made some cupcakes for the 100th day of school. They are 'healthy' chocolate cupcakes (hidden ingredients!) with pink buttercream icing and fondant circles with "100" on them. They must have been good, there weren't any left in the container when it came home!
