C2C with Caron Cakes

I have been seeing post and articles everywhere about Caron Cakes yarn and I have been itching to get my hands on some. Well I received some money for my birthday so I decided to use it for myself, for once, and get something I wanted. Not something I necessarily needed but something I wanted. 
I ordered them online from Michael's, since none of the stores near me carries it. They happened to have a sale going on that day and I ended up getting a really great deal plus free shipping! BIRTHDAY SCORE!!
Well the Cakes set in my bedroom for about a month just looking at me, taunting me... I had no idea what to make out of them. Then I get a message from a friend saying she needed a baby shower gift.
AH HA!! a light bulb went off! I could make a C2C blanket and matching hat for her. I LOVE C2C and I figured the color changes of the yarn would make beautiful stripes. Plus she needed it fairly quickly and C2C works up very quickly, which is perfect for my short attention span. 
If you are looking for a C2C pattern. They have a good one here. If you are more of a visual person they have a great video here.

This is the first set I made. I love the way it turned out. It took less than 2 cakes and the best part is there were no ended to tie in where the colors changed!! 

After my friend gave that one as a gift at a work baby shower everyone loved it so much she decided that she wanted another one for an upcoming shower.  The below pic is the second set I made. 

The blankets measure 24" X 36" and the hat is in a newborn size using this pattern   .

What have you made with your Caron Cakes? I have several more cakes that I need ideas for...
