Bluebonnet Legends cake

Today was our oldest granddaughter’s 9th birthday, who requested the American Girl doll, Kaya AND a cake to match!  No small orders, these grands of ours!!

I was pretty blank on how to incorporate Kaya into a cake.  But then I remembered my The Legend of the Bluebonnet book by Tomie de Paola that was filed away in our book shelves!  Perfect!!

Did a little sketch.  Researched some.  Hit the jackpot on Pinterest!  And came up with an idea.  With the birthday girl painting the tipi, the project was completed.


Son #2 insisted that the little Indian girl was Pocahontas.  We tried to explain that this was “She Who is Alone” holding her dear doll
