Mother's Day Tea Towel Cake
Don't you just love it! Unfortunately as cute as it is my Mom will not be receiving it for Mother's Day. I don't think it would survive being shipped to Canada! But I had the idea in my head and had to put it together! So to Mommy from Asher I guess! Hopefully some of you will make them for you mom! And of course send me pictures if you do!!
Here's how to make it & what you'll need:
Cake Base Board
Three Coordinating Tea Towels
Baking Utensils & Cookie Cutter
Ribbon, Letters or other Embellishments
Hot Glue Gun & Glue
I used a cereal box for my cardboard. If using the same, flatten out and cut two strips.
My first strip was about 4 inches wide by 16 inches long
My second strip was 6 inches wide by 13 inches long.
I found these "designer" coordinating tea towel sets at Ross for $5.00!
Bend the long strip into a circle. Secured with hot glue and then secure to the cake base with hot glue.
Repeat step three with the taller strip and secure it in the middle.
Covering the cardboard is simple. Fold your tea towel (I kept mine folded the way it came) and wrap it around the cardboard and secure with pins in the back. Fold the bottom towel over the cardboard.
Stuff your third tea towel into the top and fluff up all pretty!
Decorate your cake! I did a baking theme, wooden spoons, whisks and a heart cookie cutter. Then I added ribbon and sparkly letters I had left over from a real cake my friend made for my baby shower.
You're Done! Easy, Cute & Unique! I love it!
