Let Them Have Cake - No Calories

Cake with no calories, how can that be????
When it is a cake made from paper, as cute as it can be.

The other day while on Stampin' Connection (Stampin' Up! Demonstrator only website), I saw a beautiful paper cake created by Bridget Douglass. Bridget mentioned where she had obtained the template for the cake slices and I was off to search. The template makes one slice, but when you put 12 slices together it makes an approximate 9" round cake like I made below. It is 2 1/4" high.

Click here for the template. Template is from Victorine Originals
The directions are on the template for making the slice of cake. Just be sure to use a strong double sided tape (like Stampin' Up! Sticky Strip, item #104294) to hold it together.

12 slices of cake put together. The ends open ... this is a box to hold goodies or small presents.

Just testing out different looks ... I had 13 of the carnation & ruffled flowers, so decided to play a bit with them to see what different looks I could achieve.

I fully decorated one piece. The white frosting is our 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Extra-Large, item #118874. It is a perfect fit for the slices.

The Happy Birthday was cut out with 2" x 1 3/8" Oval Extra-Large Punch and layered onto the Decorative Label Extra-Large Punch.

Isn't the striped paper the perfect touch to make it looks like layers of cake and frosting. I used the In-Color Designer Series Paper Pack which is the Level One Hostess Gift, item #121028.

I'm not sure if this is the design I will do for the cake. But it is a great example and I had fun making it. Once I have completely finished the cake decoration, I will post the completed cake.

You could use the cake as a party favor, to hold birthday or anniversary gifts, and wouldn't it be perfect for a bridal shower too. If you are an Home Party Consultant of any type, this would be great to put door prize slips into the boxes for people to draw. Perfect too for the person who wants a cake, but doesn't want the calories. So many possibilities.
