This and That

First off, I was thrilled to find my Girly Cake on Cake Wrecks this Sunday. If you don't know, It's actually an honor to be featured on Sunday. Any other day of the week, not so good. A special thanks to Jutta for the nomination and Jaime for letting me know. 

Honestly my cake was a little out of it's league. You can see it amongst all the other amazing cakes she featured HERE

I made that cake almost a year ago for my oldest girls birthday and guess what? It will be her birthday again this week. We are in the process of designing this years cake. She has requested blue birds.

So far here this is what we have for inspiration:

I love the flowers on this one and the birds are okay but not my favorite. 

I love the branch on this one. The bird could use some tweaking, but I like the idea of a silhouette better.  

I would love your help, have any of you seen any cute birdie cakes?

And I hate to brag, but look what I just got in the mail. I'm so excited. Unfortunately, my life has been so crazy I haven't even played with it yet. I'm hoping to get to it today. Do any of you know if I have to use the Silhouette brand fabric interfacing or can I just use heat and bond? I wanted to make something for the birthday girl, but don't know if it will get here in the mail on time. 

And Lastly,

Season 4 auditions are happening now at The Country Chic Cottage! You only have today and tomorrow to link, so get going.

I read Cake Wrecks religiously. I didn't know it was yours...(I never click on the links, just read the post!) Congrats!

I have used regular heat n bond with my Silhouette and it worked just fine- I had a few places I had to go over with an exacto knife, but that's probably more my blades or my settings. Have fun- I love my Silhouette!

i have a silhouette but i've never used their interfacing... just regular heat 'n bond so you should be good to go. :)

I personally think it was totally justified. I was thrilled to email you and let you know it was there! :)

(sometimes I wish I had girls to make some sweet girly cakes for...!) :)

I love bird-themed stuff at the moment (I'm even incorporating it into my upcoming wedding a little.)

I found these last year when I was looking for ideas for Mum's birthday cupcakes. I absolutely love them!


There's some amazing cakes on that blog!

Love your girly cake!
