So ... we're invited to dinner at a dear friend's home tonight, and she won't let me bring anything to contribute to the meal ... so she gets this instead. A tiny "personal cake" just for her and her husband to enjoy, later.
I've been wanting to try the quilting technique and the pillow-cake technique ... what do you think? It looked a lot like a pie with a teal-colored top crust when I started out ... but if you squint your eyes, twirl around three times and click your heels together -- does it kinda sorta look like a pretty little gift pillow, fit for a princess or a queen?
Oh dear. Why do I keep hearing that nursery song, "Four and twenty blackbirds, baked in a pie..." repeating over and over in my head?
Darn. It DOES still look like a pie, doesn't it? Oh well. It's a pretty pie. Especially if you like teal crusts.
