Cake USA

Less than 24 hours after I made the cake pictured here... two-thirds of it is gone... and there's only two people in our household :) LOL, that is why I do not make sweets more often- they're gone almost before I even finish making them! hehe... Oh, and if you're wondering why the cake is so short, it's because it's a spelt cake (we're a low/no gluten household) and I'm still playing around with leaveners.

Anyways, DH has been having a rough time at work, so I decided to make him a cake, and dress it up a little! I made the cute little bunting, and after it vacated the cake, it took up residence as part of our patriotic mantel (pictures coming soon!).

I made the super simple twine balls whilst watching a movie. So simple and they are a great "filler" for any decor piece. I chose to put them in a cut-crystal piece that I bought at Disney World a few years ago. The twine was leftover from a wreath I made- tutorial coming soon! :)
