Saying Happy Birthday To...

My sister Lisa! She is an avid knitter, so I put a ball of yarn and needles on the cake. This was my first time making a sheet cake & doing these kind of borders. My favorite part was curling the ribbons and sticking them in the cake. I made the Daisys on the cake, just with frosting that hardens!



Happy 21st Birthday Lisa!!
