Your pillow came out fantastic. I think that's the perfect finishing for that design. And I love those checkerboard cakes. My DD loves those so I make them quite a bit. Your pictures look so good that I want one now - but still don't have working ovens! DRAT!!

Margaret said...

Wow! On both counts! :D

Lovely pillow Ranae! What a great finish.

Your cake looks so yummy...I've never seen the gizmo you used to "marble" the batter in the pan before baking.

I'm so much behind with blog reading but I have just read your last posts. Wow, you have some great WIPs on the go. And visited some great LNSs. I'd love to have at least one LNS near where I live but no chance.
