Happy Birthday to....?????

The felt pie series so far...


When my friend Angela asked for suggestions about how to deal with the problem of too much real birthday cake being served at her kids' long day care centre, I was wondering whether a felt cake would be the answer. At Isobel's pre-school, they used to have a wooden cake which they put candles on, sang Happy Birthday and the birthday kid "cut" the cake with a wooden "knife". So, would felt work? I think it would. I have made a sample slice for Angela to show the daycare centre. If they like it, I'll make a 6-slice cake with interchangeable Happy Birthday ribbons around it. Here's the sample: What do you think?
