This bright and beautiful cake hat was designed by member Crystal. It reminds me of those elegantly flamboyant hats certain ladies wear to church, especially around Easter. I just love Crystal's edible butterflies and calla lilies. Her cake is just as happy and sunny as the weather is today!
The sweet little bunny cupcake topper is just one of the neat ideas on the blog. To download, click here. It's best to print on a good card stock and have plenty of toothpicks. For further directions go to the website.
