Happy Pigday to me!

Both my daughters are up visiting this week, and they sprang a birthday surprise on me.  First of all, it isn't actually my birthday until Monday, so that helped with the surprise.  Then my youngest daughter lured me away to a fabric store for part of the afternoon.  (I admit it wasn't a hard sell...)  While we were gone, my oldest daughter did some piglet magic with a chocolate sheet cake and some fondant.






You can get instructions for making your own piggy here and here at Sally T's blog, though you'll have to settle for just a fabric one.  For a fondant pig, you're on your own...



Since this is based on my main block for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilts, I'm linking with So Scrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday.  Come see all the lower-calorie fun!

Well, first of all, have a Wonderful BD! Second, may I borrow your daughters? lol. They are so in tuned with what you love, it's just awesome! DD1 has a great talent for cake decoration and working with fondant. That piglet is fantastic. Did you eat it? or will you quilt it? lol. All the best my dear, and sooooooo many more returns. ;^)
