Anyone for cake?

Before I say anything I have to thank 2 amazingly talented crafters for sharing their ideas and providing so much inspiration for me and allowed me to make these.  Firstly, STEPH who shared her “cake” project with us a few months ago HERE.  I fell in love with this idea and thought it would be a great thing to sell at our school Christmas Fair so made these Christmassey versions.  Secondly I need to thank DAWN for the poinsettia tutorial she showed us on the Whiff of Joy blog a couple of weeks ago HERE.  When I saw them I knew they were EXACTLY what I wanted for the top of my cake boxes.  I have actually made 6 all together so when I get a chance to photograph the other three I will put them up here.  The snowflake one in the middle uses a sizzlit die set.cake 1 cake 1 close cake 2 cake 2 close  cake 3

I thought they would be great for a table centre or just to give little gifts in.  I have used my SU oval punches to make the little labels on the back (and to cover up the join of the punched strip (made with my various MS punches).  I also want to thank my chums Rajinder, Fiona, Nikki and Pauline who came round on Tuesday evening and despite it being a school night, worked their little crafty hands to the bone to get these babies assembled.  Couldn’t have done it without you girlies!!
