It is time for Stitching, Sketching, Scrapping Sunday again. Once again I am joining Mama Manuscripts to share some homemade goodness!
Maggie turned 12 Friday. She and I made a Sock Monkey cake for her birthday party. We based the design on a piece of scrapbook paper. She drew a sketch with her color choices for us to follow in decorating the cake.
We decided to make the cake itself just as interesting as the frosting. Aunt Debbie sent us an email a few weeks ago with a link to this rainbow cake. She thought it would be perfect for color loving Maggie and it was!
There are six individual layers: purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, and red (from bottom to top).
Once frosted with orange, I added the green stripes and outlined the sock monkey. Maggie filled in the monkey with stars, with just a bit of help from me. She was doing such a good job that I moved on to other things, while she finished up the monkey and then added the purple star border at the base.
I am a Mom. That is my definition of me. I am Mom to four loud, busy, creative, strong-willed children. My husband is my very best friend and thankfully, just as strongwilled as our kids! Our house is loud, and I mean really loud, and disorganized, but always interesting. We homeschool, craft, play in the dirt alot, and love to travel!
