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.
