someone say pie?

In honor of my daughter’s birthday, let’s have pie! Here are some ways to make pie for your dollies! (The above image is The Room Mom‘s blueberry no bake, no sew pie! Image links to site too.)

Not feeling crafty? Someone else is! etsy sellers have created some astounding looking pies too (click images for links – no formal endorsements here folks, they just look GREAT!):

Cherry is my daughter’s favorite.  One Thanksgiving she asked for a whole cherry pie for herself. Her father and I agreed to teach her a lesson and let her have it so I made two cherry pies that year.  She ate the whole thing at the table following the big meal without getting sick proving to us that she was really part cherry herself (or possibly part pie?).  I have to make two every year now.

Happy Pie-ing, Dollings!

PS. I decided to include the pre-made options for inspiration nor endorsement purposes. Please let me know if you don’t like that too 🙂

is it time for cake?

I know there are more than one of us celebrating this week (and last)!  The above image would be a perfect card/present in my opinion and comes to us from big ideas from a little girl.  That’s one of the most clever and beautiful uses of a battery powered tea light that I’ve seen.  Teri’s tutorial is brilliant.

let them eat … cake

image 2015-02-23 cakesThe above image of an amazing repurpose craft of Felicity’s Tea Cakes  is clipped from youtube and links to the video (also listed below).  If you’ve found Living a Doll’s Life blog and not Rhonda’s youtube channel, now’s the time to camp out for a few hours watching doll videos.

With both AG Grace and JG Mikaella enjoying baking, it seemed time to dig out the cake recipes.  Several cake crafts are similar and that’s ok; we each have our own take on decorating.
