I bought the shamrock cake pan on sale at hobby lobby for 80% off but would like to use it for more than once a year. Anyone have any ideas or used this pan for something other than st. patricks day?
You could probably decorate it to look like an informal bouquet of flowers (like the lobes are several daisies each, the stem is a bunch of stems, with a bow tied around them). I'd imagine that might work for most birthdays.
Thanks for the great idea. I plan on trying it around mothers day.
I bet it will turn out great -- hope you consider posting a photo!
Maybe you could do a cluster of heart-shaped balloons for Valentine's Day?
Or a (larger) cluster of regular balloons for birthdays?
Might even work as a seated teddy bear for baby showers if you cut a little off the stem and tucked it into the crevices to make the bottom more straight across -- then the middle leaf would be the bear's head and each of the side leaves could be an arm and a leg....?
Okay -- just thought of a couple more (I often have TOO MANY ideas, which is one of my problems!!!!)
How about a cross for Easter or First Communion -- you could use the wider leaf-areas to decorate the cross with flowers or leaves, etc.
And for Academy Awards parties -- you could make the stem into the base of the Oscar statuette, and then have a scalloped, swagged "stage" area behind the statue.
See, once I get started I really cannot stop!
How about a ballerina tutu? (Top leaf is the bodice, and the rest is the skirt.)
Or an angel? Turn it upside-down and make the angel's head with halo in the stem area, two side leaves as wings, and middle leaf as skirt.
wow endymion. thanks for the great ideas. this is exactly what i was looking for when i posted this. who knows, with all those ideas, maybe my shamrock pan will be my most used one now.
