Paper pinwheels...

Celebrating a birthday today.
Not mine but my daughter's. 
She's a lover of books ~ she get's that from both her father and me. 

So I thought I would incorporate her love of books with her love of cake

These pages, turned into paper fans and pinwheels, were taken from an old french novel.
I had purchased them at Faded Plains late last Autumn to make holiday ornaments and had a few left over. 

I love how the pages have turned almost ivory with age. They look lovely against the creamy white of the buttercream icing with the perfect touch of natural browns added.


  1. The cake looks wonderful with your pinwheels on top...such a great idea.
