Eat cake!! :)


Let's eat cake!!!!  Who doesn't love to eat cake, especially birthday cake??  I guess that would be my family!  Our "birthday cakes" are cinnamon rolls or cheesecake or S'mores Bars or French Silk Pie or German Chocolate Brownies or Oreo 'Lasagna'!!  Not very cake-ish, are we?  But that's what we usually have... my son is the only one who actually asks for a "normal" cake!

I've got a fun cake for you today!!   Doesn't this look like it would be yummy if it were real?


My cake features Cute Cake from Doodle Pantry.  FYI, this set is FREE with purchase until April 24!!!   So check your DP wishlist, buy a set, and get this set FREE!! :)


I kept my card pretty simple.   I printed the colored banner and cake, cut it to size, embossed with Cuttlebug "With Gratitude" EF, scored on both sides of the sentiment banner, fussy cut another cake, and popped it up with Scotch permanent mounting tape.  (That stuff is really neat... it gives dimension, but it quite thin so that card is not too bulky.)
