Quilt Birthday Cake

Darla Hill


For my daughter's 7th birthday I gave a Tea Party With 8 of her closet friends. When I pulled out the plain un-frosted cake the girls thought I went nuts until I told them that because I had forgotten to decorate the cake they could help and the sugars candies, sprinkles, jimmys, and frosting was pulled out!
