Patty Cake Tower

Look at this for a birthday cake, a tower of Patty Cakes with a quilting theme, the top cake is a pincushion, complete with needle and thread,

A Kaleidoscope and a nine patch 'blocks'
Cute little pincushion with a button on top, a collection of all those little 'ears' that get trimmed from the completed blocks. For a non sewer this lass did some serious research.
Stars, a snatch of a nine patch, and another flower and button pincushion
Another 9 patch, and down the bottom a pinwheel
but just look at this one, cotton reels and thread! Talk about detail!
and finally, a close up of the pincushion with needle and thread. I heard that there were some cakes that got a stern talking too about conforming to shape, and I believe it, this is an amazing job, Thank You DDIL, the table decorations, balloons and such a special cake went a long way to making this such a wonderful day
