She made a rainbow ruffle cake for my daughter's rainbow birthday party, AND she made the favors too.
Look, the cake and the ribbons in one shot!
My daughters are known for wearing curly ribbon hair accessories, so it was only natural, that for the rainbow party they each wore one too.
I had originally planned to make them myself (along with the cake) until we were struck with the croup, and the whole family was out of commission for about 2 weeks.
Enter my lovely sister, who bought the ribbon, curled it (wind it around dowels and bake in the oven), assembled the curly ribbons, covered the clips with rainbow ribbon, then attached them all together.
She was inspired by Pinterest, and used this tutorial for the corkscrew part, and this one to make the baby ones non-slip.
See how the baby bows are backed with felt and non-slip mat so they will stay in super fine bay hair?
Why yes, I did display them on my rainbow mantle! Complete with rainbow paper chains and rainbow snowflakes.
Again, she rocks, and I love how adorable the ribbons looked on everyone!
