I had to quit clapping, my son and husband were looking at me a little oddly. I'm really getting into my work...
This morning's pick up was for a little girl turning 1 today. She was Tinkerbell for Halloween, so we went with a Tinkerbell themed cake and the invitation was a picture of her from Halloween. So cute!
I've actually been waiting for months to try out an idea I had for butterfly wings. Around Christmas I was looking at different cookie recipes, and one was for stained glass cookies. The stained glass part was crunched up hard candies that re-melted in the oven as the cookie was baking. I thought blending several different colored hard candies would be very pretty. It did work, but the shapes are very organic, which worked fine in this circumstance.

And Tinkerbell's cottage:
And some of the details.....
You'll notice I used figures for Tinkerbell and her friends. With the perspective I wanted and the level of detail, I just didn't feel like I would be able to create such petite figures. But now the birthday girl with have a keepsake from her first birthday. Here's to this being first of many wonderful birthday's for this little girl.
