M-girl turned 10 (TEN) on Monday. Months ago she asked for a Sound of Music cake and I was unsure of how to accomplish that. Then, I had an idea for crafty, not piped.
I baked a bowl cake (as I did for N-boy's Hobbit Cake). I used the internet, my printer, and laminator. I found a picture of Maria and images of her favorite things. I printed them, laminated, and cut them out. I used icing as glue to hold the little pics to the cake board. Maria is taped to a wood skewer. Piped some words in pink, and voilà, done.
