I made this a month or so ago for a contest that I entered, and I can finally show it to you because I didn't win. Waaahhh!!!
Seriously though, I loved making this cake! This is probably the most satisfying project I have ever made. It sat on my kitchen counter on a cake stand for weeks! I almost shed a tear as I glued it all together because it is going to be on display at my local Joann for an upcoming class.
For those of you who haven't seen these before, the cake is made using the triangle box from the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cartridge. Put a bunch of triangles together, and what do you get? A cake! The very top layer was made from an embellished paper mache box. Some of the rosettes were made from an Imaginisce Roly Rosies pack, but then I figured out how to do them freehand - even better!
The best part of this project is you can actually use the pieces of the cake to hold party favors. What little girl wouldn't love this at their party, and then be able to take a little piece of "cake" home with them?
