Sewing Cake ~ Truly Custom Cakery

Ok so my girlfriend Stacey, the owner of Truly Custom Cakery
sent me this pic and said she thought of me the minute she saw it.

It made me smile. Why you may ask's my list in no particular order
1 ~ I love cake. I mean really.....who doesn't love cake?
2 ~ It's nice to know your friends are thinking about you
3 ~ Needlework is my PASSION....If there were letters larger than all caps, I would use them!
4 ~ My friends associate me with needlework, cross stitch, knitting, etc.
5 ~ Did I mention I like cake?

So I ask you....who knows that you are a stitcher? Do your friends think of you when they see threads, fabrics or fun cakes? Stacey isn't a stitcher (not yet anyway...) but she tells me all the time that she is more in tune now than ever before! She notices local shops on her travels, she checks out Hoffman's Friday updates (later this afternoon stay tuned). I have been able to introduce her to stitching and how much fun it can be and sometimes all you need is to meet someone where they are ~ for Stacey that's cakes! Ha ha ha ~ maybe I'll start calling her Stacey Cakes, she's gonna kill me, hahahahaha

Stacey is an incredible Baker with a thriving Custom Cake business (I should know, I've ordered 4 cakes last year). Here's a few pics of her work. Now I have to figure out how to drop the hint to the big guy (my hubby) that I NEED a custom stitching cake for my B-day this year. No worries, I have 4 months to work out a plan (:

Stacey has a great tutorial on how to make these amazing melted snowman cookies (see picture below). You can view the tutorial (left hand column her blog ) here

  1. Where can I purchase this pattern?
    Color Me Shazamm! Product # DBL-C57
    I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and there are no stitch stores in my city. J
