Let them eat felt cake and brownies!!

I've become addicted to making felt play food for Josie. It started with cupcakes and then Chinese food, and over the weekend, I came up with an easy way to make brownies and a cake.

Because I'm still not fond of needles/thread, a glue gun was used in this craft. If you can wrap packages, you can make felt brownies. Pinky swear.


1 inch wooden blocks (available at any craft store)
Brown felt
Hot glue
Silk or ribbon flowers
Ribbon and/or rick rack *optional, but it looks really pretty

I used 1 inch blocks for the base of the brownie. I cut enough fabric to wrap around my block and then used hot glue to adhere the felt to the block. I folded the ends of the felt just like you would wrap packages.

I then glued ribbon and/or rick rack around the diameter of the brownie and added a ribbon flower on top.
Cake supplies:

2 styrofoam circles
Pink paint and brush
Pink felt
Rick rack or ribbon
Ribbon flowers or silk flowers

Glue styrofoam circles together with hot glue and trace 2 circles onto felt and cut out.

Paint sides of styrofoam with pink paint. I also painted the top and bottom but it wouldn't be necessary.

I stuck the styrofoam in front of a fan to speed up the dry time. It was done in about 20 minutes (10 minutes per side). I then hot glued the felt to the top and bottom of the styrofoam.

I added rick rack around the edges with hot glue and embellished the cake with mini ribbon flowers.

Buzz might need to go on a diet after all these special tea party desserts.

Happy Monday!
Happy Crafting!

THESE ARE AMAZING, wooden blocks? great idea! A foam birthday cake has been on my to do list for awhile, but I have been discouraged by the project. Your version turned out so amazing, the ricrac is a perfect touch. I will pass this link on to a few of my feltfood obsessed friends! great post & project Kim

Wow! I wish Josie could come over and play tea at our house (when it is free of germs of course!) She and Tori could spend hours of tea time together! Cute, cute, cute!

Hope all is well with Nana...
