We finished the cake hat - my daughter's brilliant idea to turn a fake slice of cake into a cocktail hat. We bought an incredible realistic looking cake piece on our trip to Tokyo at the wonderful Tokyu Hands department store. This place is a must for all arts and crafts fans when visiting Tokyo.

Luckily we attended the perfect occasion to test drive the cake hat yesterday. We went to the Fillmore to see one of my favorite local bands
Rosin Coven - the world's premiere pagan lounge ensemble - perform with other artists and opening up for the Yard Dog Road Show. Everything was very Punk Cabaret. Gingerbread Candy Monahan of
Rosin Coven is the only cellist I have ever seen to really rock a cello. In fact all the musicians of Rosin Coven are such interestingly strange characters and good musicians that I feel always inspired by their performance. They are also the instigators of the Edwardian Ball that we have attended now for the 3rd year. Their events draw an audience that is often very creative and totally into dressing up. So the cake hat was in good company.

Here we are all dressed up and ready to go
