I dyed the white ground cloth with food coloring! Then I heat set the color with my iron. I found the birthday cake pattern from All Sorts (via Pinterest) and transferred the pattern to the fabric with a tailor's pencil and a light table. The embroidery is done in stem stitch with two strands of blue embroidery floss.
After the embroidery was complete, I adhered some fusible web to the back of the embroidery with a dry iron. Next I cut out the shape with pinking shears. Finally I removed the paper backing from the fusible web and adhered the embroidery to card stock.

May all your wishes come true!
