It's a cake, but not a cake.






I had been making this 'cake' as a birthday present for my granddaughter and was in the process of decorating it when I saw on the Cricut message board that Okie had made a cheesecake cake box. Thank you Okie, it was just what I needed so I downloaded the cut file. Then I added a cut out scalloped circle to the top and a scalloped edge around the lid. Now I just have to buy some gifts to put inside. One of the cake pieces is smaller than the others as I miscalculated the sizes, but I am very pleased with the result.
The middle picture is the true colour, and I used blue and cream pearlescent card, with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder on the flower.
The cartridges used were Plantin Schoolbook and Accent Essentials. The cake is 6" and the box is slightly larger.
You can get the cut file for the box from Okie's blog:- http://okieladybugsscrapnmore.blogspot.com/

That looks SO AWESOME! It DOES really look like a cake once it's in the box! I love the scalloped edging on the box too...your granddaughter will love it!
