Pilgrim Birds

Yes, you read that right, I have been making Pilgrim Birds. I needed some toppers to put on the mini cheesecakes I am making for Thanksgiving, so I decided to make another cute bird from the 3 Birds on Parade Cart. I think they turned out really cute, but I would not suggest making these this small. Some of the layers were very tiny and it took a lot longer than I anticipated to get them put together. I think if they would have been just a bit bigger it would have made them a lot easier to handle. For the yellow buttons and yellow around the hat, I ended up using a gel pen, because they cut way too small to use. I cut a blackout version for the back and used hot glue to attach both sides to the skewer to go into the mini cheesecakes.

These are going to be the talk of the day. They are wonderful. We are going to make brownies to take with us to the grandparent's house and I need to show these to my daughter to see if she can come up with a creative idea too!

Love them,
Georgiana
