This is a wedding cake that I made for a very close friend of my daughter back in May. The bride was a "thoroughly modern Millie" type of bride and wanted something super simple. There was not a cake topper and I tried to make the cake exactly like the picture she sent me. The cake was white cake with simple buttercream icing. The "O" monogram ended up being a wooden letter that my husband cut out for me. I painted, glittered, and then polyurethaned it. It was attached by placing a couple of toothpicks in the cake at the point of contact and literally hanging the monogram off the cake. I didn't want the wooden letter to come in contact with the cake. Because everything on the cake was white, the toothpicks didn't show because I hid them with buttercream icing.
I didn't use the Cricut cake machine or any type of papercrafting item. This was all old school cake decorating. (I used to do this for a way to make some $$$ before I went back to school.)
I like scrapbooking, cardmaking, sewing, and scuba diving. My life revolves around my God, family, close friends, and my work. Because I have a life outside of my work and home, I don't always post as regularly as I should because life gets in the way. I deeply appreciate anyone that comes this way and I hope that you will pop in for a visit every now and then. Cheers and happy crafting!

Your fairy is called Fire Elffilter
She is a cheerful sprite.
She lives where fireflies mate and breed.
She is only seen on midsummer's eve.
Her dresses glow with fiery colours. She has delicate green wings like a cicada.
