Sew Sweet Strawberry Towel Cake

I have seen a variety of these bath-type cupcakes and cakes for a couple of years now. I am completely fascinated by them, but would never want to use one because it would destroy the craft itself. I think I finally solved that problem.

This is really easy to make.
(Hmm...are you sensing a theme this Valentine's Day? "Easy" maybe?)
 I digress.

I used a tutorial from Moda Bake Shop written by V and Co. to make the strawberries.

To make the cake part, start with a large washcloth or small towel. I used a Valentine's fingertip towel.

I have seen these with fabric and paper cupcake liners as well as with fabric frosting. This will be a gift for an adult so I didn't see the need to have a leftover piece. As it stands, it is all usable. The best part is that even when you "destroy" the cake to use it, you will still have a beautiful plate and scrumptious fabric strawberries to use in some other way.
The craft that keeps on crafting!

**An update: Look what I found at Target today for $2.50...
Isn't that perfect for towel cakes and Valentine's Day gifts?
