Happy Birthday Surprise Cake! by Maria Celeste Gonzalo

Hi! I feel so happy to be back! I'm Celes from GuiadeManualidades.com and today we are going to have a party… a birthday party!  Birthday Blast Collection is an amazing and wonderful paper collection to create very special details for a birthday.
This project has two ideas: a cake made of sweet treat boxes and a very special cake topper.




For this project you can use a cutting file from your own cutting machine. In my case, I used a cutting file from my Scanncut Canvas. But, if you have an .SVG file or a .Studio3 file from your Silhouette machine you can use it too. Depending on which cutting file you use, you will need 10 boxes to make a cake. In that case, you will need 10 white cardstock of 12”x12”. Cut 10 boxes and choose one design paper from your paper pad.



Assemble all the boxes and glue them in the indicated paper tabs.



To decorate all boxes, you need to cut 5 or 6 paper strips (depending on the size of your box). I used Color Vibe Collection “Brights" and “Bolds” pads. Glue each strip and complete the “rainbow” in every box.


Then cut the cake decoration (Decor File) using the design paper that you chose before. Put all the boxes together and use a piece of ribbon to make de cake.



Cake Topper:

For making the cake topper you need one piece of stable cardboard of 5” of diameter. Cover that piece with one of the papers of the Color Vibe Collection. Besides, cut some strips of white crepe paper and glue them to the base. Next, you need to cut two pieces of white cardstock of: 4 1/2” w x 7/8” h. Score them in 3/8” at each end of the paper (wide) and 3/8” at the base (high). You are going to make small bases to prepare the different layers of the cake topper.



Use all you have to decorate… die cuts, stickers, chipboards, brads, washi tapes… Play with all of them! I used acetate to add some special details and I prepared a third layer with two sticks for brochette. I love to decorate and make such funny and happy layers!  See all the details in these photos.




You don't need to glue the cake topper to the cake. It’s possible to add another detail to the cake like a word or a phrase.




Isn't it a lovely idea? I hope you like it!
