Today our girls Hannah and Ellen celebrated 245 years since the final drafts of the Declaration of Independence were printed. Hannah and Ellen were looking forward to a bright sunny day, a delicious picnic lunch, and, of course, dessert and firecrackers.
I started this smocked dress last year but never got around to finishing it. I had visioned the dress as a Valentine’s Day dress and embroidered the roses to look like hearts. I had inserted French lace into the sleeves but had problems with the bullion rose embroidery. I just couldn’t get them to look right and kept on removing the embroidery. I decided to put it away and finally decided to try working on it this year again.
The yoke was also cut out of the lace panel that I had sewn. I was finally satisfied with the embroidery on the sleeves.
I sewed together strips of lace to make a lace panel for the lower sleeves.
This cake was specially made for our little princess’s birthday. Since she is a little chess master, we felt this cake was very appropriate for her. The chess pieces and board were made out to white and dark chocolate. The square cake layers are chocolate and white cakes filled with mascarpone and chocolate ganache.
