I think this cake counts as craft...
There was a fair bit of painting and ribbon twirling, gluing and praying to a higher being that it would balance... I re-read the fine print of the 'inspiration cake' instructions a billion times (pink, covered in musk sticks and actually looks nothing like this one...) "This cake is not difficult, it is however time consuming"
Yep, it is not difficult...it IS however quite time consuming... good, fun craft generally is tho.
Day 2 - paint little horses (then go back to bed again with girls)
Day 3 - twirl ribbons round sticks, bake cakes, ice cakes with amazing quantities of fondant stuff, stick horses in cake and then go to bed declaring myself too exhausted to continue (and too terrified to put the top on anyway)
Day 4 - Hold party at a local park so that I have to transport the cake several blocks and around MANY corners (this caused a ridiculous amount of stress to everyone but the birthday girl who was oblivious).
Sing Happy Birth Day. Blow out candle. Eat cake.
