Day 226/365 - Card Cake
I mulled this one over for awhile today. Once I set myself to task catching up on the three I was behind today, the ideas started flowing pretty well.
I started by looking through our playing card collection. After 20 years together, we've amassed a pretty nice collection. We also ask for people to bring us a deck back if they're traveling somewhere exotic. Mostly because a pack of souvenir playing cards is something you can always find. The pack I pulled out, though, was a set we bought just because we thought they were fun.
The cards are only about 2 inches wide and about 6 inches long. They're nice for playing a game which requires you to hold a lot of cards in your hand. I thought these might be a nice shape to work with. Then I flipped them over and remembered the pattern on the back, which lent itself very well to looking like frosting. Then I chuckled to myself at my own cleverness for the candles.
