Truly Scrumptious (14) - Anything BUT A Card
Allsorts (16) - NO Rubber Stamping
Well, it's not a card and there is no stamping involved so I guess it fits both challenges.
I made this for my eldest son Shaun's 40th birthday last week (and today is my youngest son's 31st birthday, hope you've been having a great time in Derby Sam). Anyway, every year Shaun asks me if I have made him a 'toothpaste' cake for his birthday (his favourite), and suprise! suprise! this year I said I had and this was what I produced. You should have seen his face... Don't worry, he got the real cake as well.
I made the cake with a 'Card Carousel' template. Each layer was done in brown card to represent the chocolate with the green ribbon to represent the green minty buttercream icing. I then made the stand from silver mirri card and stuck the cake on to the stand. I punched some leaves from the mirri card and arranged them on top of the cake with some cream roses and put more roses around the cake layers.
I must say the template was very easy to work with, I have yet to finish the box for it to go in, the template for this is included. What I like about it as well is that all pieces are cut from A4 card.
Thanks for looking.
