October 2015: My daughter wanted to have a carnival themed birthday. One morning, I had the idea of putting all the cupcakes on a ferris wheel, but decided not to tell my daughter the idea because I was’n’t sure I could actually make it happen. Of course I told her, and then there was no going back. I made this cardboard prototype to get some dimensions and then went to Home Depot to get the materials. Coincidentally, they had a 1″ thick round piece of wood that was EXACTLY the size of my cardboard prototype. What are the chances?!
