Materials for Brownies:

 1 inch wooden blocks (available at any craft store)
 Brown felt
 Hot glue
 Silk or ribbon flowers
 Ribbon and/or rick rack *optional, but it looks really pretty

Materials for Cake:

 2 Styrofoam circles
 Pink paint and brush
 Pink felt
 Rick rack or ribbon
 Ribbon flowers or silk flowers

Instructions for Brownies:

1. I used 1 inch blocks for the base of the brownie. I cut enough fabric to wrap around my block and then used hot glue to adhere the felt to the block. I folded the ends of the felt just like you would wrap packages.

3. I stuck the Styrofoam in front of a fan to speed up the dry time. It was done in about 20 minutes (10 minutes per side). I then hot
glued the felt to the top and bottom of the Styrofoam.
