Happy Birthday to my Mum!

40 felt cupcake embellishments sent to the same customer as yesterdays haul......definitely not as good as the chocolate cake Mum makes for our birthdays but it's nice that my sewing themed itself so I could show my finished cupcakes on Mum's birthday - hope you had some proper cake today Mum!
