Recommended fabric: any thin fabric, preferably in red, blue, orange, or purple, minimum size 30 inches by 7 inches, but longer is better. I used an old bandanna/handkerchief I had lying around and the size was just right.
Step one: Fold in Half
Step two: Cut off a long strip an inch and a half from the fold. (will be about 3 inches wide when unfolded)
Step three: Cut the eye holes from near the center of the strip before unfolding.
Step four: You should now have two pieces that are together but not connected. Keep them together and cut two one inch strips the length of the fabric (for a total of four)
Step five: For the best look wear a green shirt and khaki pants, tie the wide strip around your head and the thin strips around your wrists and elbows.

Craft 365 - day 94

I made this super awesome cake for my Dad who has the blessing/curse of a birthday that is way too close to father's day. I tried to make the cake extra special because it's a two-fer.
I've made lots of cakes, but this is the first time I've gone all out with a sculptural design - my family kept asking 'what's it supposed to be?' so in case you were wondering - its supposed to be a good looking cake, nothing more, nothing less.
