A Piece of Cake!!

Edit to add...To make the flowers, I used the Floral Fusion Die with the Big Shot in Pink Pirouette, and the 5-Petal Punch in Certainly Celery.

Hi! Here is a little project that I have been working on. I am so happy with how it turned out! I wanted to come up with an incentive for my customers to book a workshop with me. I've seen some of these cakes on-line, so I came up with my version. I only had time to create half of a cake because it is a little time-consuming to cut each slice out. I copied a template from http://www.victorineoriginals.com/ on Chocolate Chip Cardstock, then cut it out with a ruler and hobby knife. I used a stylus tool and ruler for the scored lines. It's easy, but takes a little time. :)

I had a workshop last night, and one guest took a piece of cake!! I'm excited!! I had little Dove Chocolates in each slice, along with a slip of cardstock that had a product printed on it. They will receive their special gift at their workshop. There is even one slice of cake with 2 gifts inside.

Isn't it pretty? Good enough to eat!! I used the new Pearl Jewels on top of each flower.

So, do you want a piece of cake??? Contact me today if you are in the St. Louis area, and let's schedule your workshop!! You and your friends will stamp 2 different projects and have a whole lot of fun!!! Here's my email address... stampwithkaren@aol.com.

Have a great day!!

Karen, this is by far the prettiest cake I've seen!! Would you mind telling me what punches you used for the flowers? I recognize the five petal punch and the itty bitty flower, but on the other layers, I'm lost!! Thanks for sharing your project! It's gorgeous!!! Sue
