Nanny Nettie-Kin's Baked Goods at Tasha Tudor Inspired Dolls' Fair!

Celebrating Tasha Tudor's 100th Birthday Year!
Nanny Nettie-Kin made the cakes for the Corgyncombe Doll Fair using the receipt for Becky's Birthday Cake from
"The Tasha Tudor Cookbook".

In the crowing roosters beverage cooler is Stillwater Iced Tea.
We ourselves enjoyed Tasha Tudor's Stillwater Iced Tea made by the artist and author's own hand!
Tasha Tudor had a special pet Rooster named Chickahominy.

The 100th anniversary of Tasha Tudor's birth was on August 28th, 1915.

Nanny Nettie-Kin reminds us of Tasha Tudor and we and the dolls and critters of Corgyncombe will continue to be celebrating this, the 100th year since Tasha Tudor's birth!

Tasha Tudor had the children use buttons to buy goods for their dolls and animals. The currency for the dolls and critters at Corgyncombe is buttons and the goods at the Corgyncombe Forget-Me-Not Fair are purchased with buttons, as well.

Hitty Rachel has placed some buttons on the counter in payment for a cake and some Stillwater Iced Tea.

Nanny Nettie-Kin rings it up!

Nanny Nettie-Kin had a baked goods booth at her Forget-Me-Not Dolls' Fair last year, too.

A lovely bouquet of forget-me-nots placed amongst the cakes.

 Nanny Nettie Kin's Corgyncombe Forget-Me-Not seeds sold at a booth at the Annual Corgyncombe Forget-Me-Not Fair.  Seeds to sow for a beauteous, bountiful sea of dainty forget-me-nots!

Nanny Nettie-Kin holds the Annual Corgyncombe Forget-Me-Not Fair to promote the delight and appreciation of her favorite flower, forget-me-nots! Tasha Tudor also loved forget-me-nots!

The cake was made for our doll Becky's Birthday Celebration in 2008 using Tasha Tudor's receipt for Becky's Birthday Cake.
