One of my wonderful friends recently had a birthday, and we celebrated at a lovely little pizzeria in Ashland. I loathe giving store-bought gifts, and I wanted to give her something special. So I made her a birthday cake hat. Because I'm that awesome.
The hat is made out of black felt (dinner plate) and white felt (birthday cake). It has lace around the sides of the bottom (decorative marzipan frosting), and even felt candles with sequins for the flames! "Happy Birthday" is written in "frosting" (really soutache braid).
I think the hat was a hit!
