What Kind of Cake Is That?

Yeah, it's not really a cake, I'm sure you could tell.  It's my St. Patrick's Day project I mentioned earlier this week.  

Do you ever buy things for one holiday and use them for another?  I usually try to pick up some things at the after Christmas sales that can work for Valentine's Day and if I'm lucky maybe St. Patrick's, Easter, or 4th of July.   In this case I really didn't get them after the holidays, I had them stashed away to use in my holiday baking but didn't get to use them - a giant bag of red, silver, and green Hershey's Kisses.  I separated the colors and yes, I'll admit I ate most of the silver ones, but the red ones went to work for Valentine's Day and the green ones were saved for this project.

Aren't they cute!  The pattern/instructions come from Qbee's Quest - click here.  They're pretty easy to make and once I calculated how many kisses I had, all I had to do was cut the right amount of pieces to get going.  The sentiment is from Teeny, Tiny Wishes, punched out with the word window punch and tied on with some variegated yellow cotton thread.  

I can hardly wait to start handing them out!  This reminds me that I'm due for a Shamrock Shake and shamrock pretzel this weekend!


  1. These are absolutely adorable Lorraine! I love how you kept yourself from eating the green ones :)

  2. Too much work for me. And too much temptation.
