This gorgeous cake is entirely made of paper, well... it has a chocolate center if that counts! I needed to come up with something fabulous for Kyler's Christening favors and I wanted to make it special. So I started creating these cake slices...one thing led to another and I ended up with a beautiful 3 layer cake with some cupcakes gathered at the base (possibly looks like a 4th layer?). Whenever I'm working on a project I usually don't have my entire project mapped out ahead of me, maybe I have a general idea of what I want to do and then just let creativity take over.
Both the cake slice box and the cupcake box were cut from the Eclips Albums, Bags & Boxes #2 cartridge. I cut the cake slices in two different sizes to get the layered cake effect and then topped it with one of the cupcakes.
Each one has is filled with HUGS & KISSES from baby Kyler!!!
I have always loved Penny Duncan's creations and she had just the perfect cross for this occasion. And, of course I had to dress up those sweet little cupcakes! I used the Flower Burst punch from EK Success to adorn the all the sides. A perfect fit!
The flowers on this cake were all cut with the Eclips using the Albums, Bags & Boxes #2 cartridge. I liked that I could cut the flower at a variety of sizes to give them a more natural and nonuniform shape. That is as natural as blue flowers can be. I cut them all from white card stock and then sprayed them with my homemade shimmer mist. Once all my flowers were cut, I rolled them while zoning out in front of the TV. A quick spritz of water before shaping helps soften the paper making it easy to mold just how you want, even on the tiniest of flowers.
I just love how this favor cake turned out. I see making many more in the future! So many ideas running through my head...the wheels are spinning...
Don't worry there will be a video coming in the very, very near future on how exactly I made this. I just wanted to share the pics right away with you. But I promise you it will be coming :)
