Felt Birthday Cake

My daughter, Evelyn, is turning two in a couple weeks. I saw this idea over at Skip to My Lou, and thought it was pretty cute, especially because when she sees a birthday cake she starts singing , "Happy Birthday to you..." and then blows the candles. 

Here's how I did my version...

I had two small plate boxes that I had saved.

 Lots of felt from a garage sale

 I cut cream colored strips for frosting around the sides and glued them on

I cut circles for the frosting on the tops and glued them on

I glued the top to the bottom

Added colored frosting strips 

Yeah! Confetti sprinkles!

A bag of embroidery thread, also from a garage sale, for the stripes on the candles

 The flame is orange and yellow felt cut in tear drop-like shapes

Then I glued the candles to the cake at first, but of course Evelyn pulled them off.
 So I used velcro. Then you can add as little or as many candles as you have wishes for.

Happy 2nd Birthday Evelyn!! Don't worry, you'll still get a real cake.
