Pam the red really 'pops'. Love the color combo, but my absolute fav is your cake. Looks good enough to eat, yet too beautiful to destroy. What an awesome idea for wedding favors. Fill the little boxes with treats for your guests (could use for birthday, bridal shower, anniversary, all sorts of ideas are running amok in this head) anyway a great take away. Very impressive!

Congrats Boni, you are the lucky winner of a cake set from Creative Cuts and More! We will be contacting you soon!

Speaking of cake...I had so much fun with the wedding cake I made that I decided to play around and make a slice of birthday cake. How fun would it be to make these for a birthday party filled with candies or little trinkets and give them away to all of your guests. The ideas on how to decorate these cake box slices is endless!

I had my cake box cut from Bazzill's Criss Cross Textured "Posie Pink" from the Bubble Gum Trio.

Bazzill Criss Cross - Bubble Gum Trio

Before assembling the box I ran it through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. Next I assembled the box using Killer Red tacky tape, then added all of the embellishments. The make the frosting on top of the cake I traced the cake on a piece of white card stock then used scalloped scissors to cut is out giving myself a good half and ink, so that the frosted "dripped" over the sides. Each balloon is made up of two stickers, one on the front and one on the backside with a piece of heavy wire in between to hold it up. The wire does go down through the top of the box. I hope you are all inspired to make a slice of cake or even a whole cake for your next special occasion.

Now head on over to Die Cut Diva for the Creative Cuts and More Customer Challenge! You could win one of three gift certificates!!
