fun felt birthday cake

My girls love to play birthday party. They were always stacking up cups for the birthday cake so when I saw this cake at ikat bag I thought I would give it a try.
You first start with three foam circles. My nice husband was kind enough to cut these out with our electric carving knife. We probably only use this knife once or twice a year but it sure does come in handy. Mine were about a 4,6,8 inch circles.
I left the top two circles whole and covered them in felt but I cut the bottom piece into six pieces and then covered them individually. This way they could serve one piece cake to party guests.
The decorations and candles are the fun part. Everything sticks on with velcro. I cut out polka dots and hearts for the cake decorations.

Candles:
Cut a rectangle shape out of felt.
Embellish with ribbon.
Sew in a tube shape
Cut two circles for the top and bottom.
Make a flame shape and hot glue together.
Cut a slit in top circle and insert flame and hot glue under side so it won't pull out.
Glue a small piece of velcro to the bottom piece.
Stuff and sew on top and bottom with a blanket stitch.

Make a Wish!

  1. Lovely! And the ric-rac on the candles is so cute! Thank you for inviting me to come see your cake - am so glad! It's funny to read that the whole birthday party thing is universal with girls all over. Must be something in the chromosomes! Am glad the idea worked out so nicely for your girls!
