The Felt Report: Having Your Cake

A few weeks ago, I asked about felt and showed pictures of some of the things my mother had made for us when we were small. In my searches for good felt, I found Prairie Woolens. What luck. They are located in Iowa, but have a web site that shows their products well. In addition to felt, they offer other hand dyed fabrics, but I got a selection of 9 x12 inch felt pieces.

Prairie woolens has a nice selection of colors and the thickness is just what I wanted.

I admired them for a few days and then decided to make a cake. A friend is having a birthday in February, and I decided that it would be nice if he could have his cake and eat it too. Since his wife told me the birthday cake would be German chocolate, I did the best approximation I could. Not sure if the whipped cream is correct, but a dollop never hurt any cake I’ve ever had…

This was so much fun to make.  I'm looking forward to the next project.

  1. At first glance I thought that was a real chocolate cupcake – and then I realised the cream wouldn’t sit that perfectly – well, mine wouldn’t any way – and then I saw the stitching …… I’m slow, but I’m thorough πŸ™‚ This is quite wonderful! I can see you having many joyful hours creating with all those gorgeous colours …… what next I wonder?

    I like that you’re making felt replicas of high carb treats like cake. i suggest you next try an equally popular high fat foods like, say, a colorful hotdog or hamburger and bun? Much better to admire them in felt than to eat them! πŸ˜‰
