I made two blocks for my birthday cake quilt. I loved this pattern from Homespun Handmaiden. She made me this block: Here is her free pattern for this block.
This is the block I made. Do not use the polyester ric rac from Walmart, it melts! I decided that I did not want to redo the block though. I also decorate cakes and felt the wavy ric-rac was more cake like. If you do add ric-rac to any of these cake patterns, be sure to add them before adding the sides of the block. I glued the ric-rac on using a glue that does not wash off so I would not have to sew it on. Only the sides are sewn into the block.
The rest of my blocks are 12 by 12 inches.

pattern here. Donna combined that pattern with this pattern to include the bow that I love.

Peggy's triple layer sprinkled cake filled with strawberry layers was her own creation I believe.
If you were wanting to make any cake blocks, I hope I gave you a lot of choices!
