A Colorful Birthday
I then found several cake examples online and decided I'd give it a go (never made a b-day cake before). The cake was a simple, rectangular white cake. I made a delicious buttercream icing recipe from allrecipes.com, and the "crayon tips" are halves of ice cream cones. My Mom used to decorate cakes, so she gave me her decorating tips etc. I used the star tip for the cake and painted the colors onto the ice cream cones with a brush, some water, and cookie decorating icing.
Here's our fun, birthday garden flag. Typically, I sew one of these from a placemat (just the right size for a garden flag) but for this one I just cut the shape I wanted from some crayon fabric I found at JoAnn's. I hot-glued some curly birthday ribbon on the top and bottom and put a red "2" made from adhesive vinyl using my Cricut Create.
