Time for Cake

My friend, Debbie is doing the decorations for the 85th anniversary for her lodge.  The Ladies decided they liked the little cake boxes as party favours for their event and I said I would help Debbie make them.  I couldn't wait to see what a whole cake looked like put together, so I made one. Each box is completely hand made - 12 slices make one cake and we need twelve cakes. One down - eleven more to go!  Fantastic!  So cute - I love them!

Due to popular demand, I'm posting links to the patterns for this cake.

Notes for making 'the cake':

You need:
  • 3 sheets of 12"x12" patterned paper 
  • 3 sheets of 12"x12" white card stock.
  • Cuttlebug & D'vine Swirls folder
  • Lace Border Punch
  • paper snips
  • Bling to match your paper
  • white glue & toothpicks
  • one roll of 1/4" Sticky Strip tape
  • paper doily
  • 2 ft - 1"ribbon
  • scotch tape
  • Cut 12"x12" paper into 4 - 6" squares.
  • print 12 'tops' on white paper
  • print 12 'bottoms' on wrong side of the patterned paper
  • cut out all the pieces
  • score, fold & glue bottoms
  • score tops
  • punch straight edges of tops with lace punch
  • run 'tops' thru Cuttlebug
  • fold & tape tops
  • embellish tops with bling
  • fill with treats & put the tops on
  • arrange on a plate over doily to form a cake
  • wrap ribbon on outer edge of cake to hold pieces together
Have fun!!
