Cake Worth Events: February

It's the second month of 2011, and I haven't even taken pictures of the cakes I've done so far in my Cake-Worthy Events Challenge (see January's post here)
Some of my favourite events this month include Laura Ingalls Wilder's Birthday (7th), Get a Different Name Day (13th), and Public Sleeping Day (28th) although I'm not sure how to turn the last 2 into cakes...
I might go with Embroidery Month and try to make a cool cake like this one...
look at the detail of the brushed embroidery on this one...

We all need some cheering up this month. Some depressing days are Disaster Day, Toothache Day, and Singles Awareness Day (which is the day after Valentines Day) so I'm planning on making some cheerful cookies to hopefully make this month more sunny. (hopefully I'll have a working camera to prove that I actually DO bake...)
