Happy Birthday to my Sister!!!



Today is the birthday of the most lovable, kindest and beautiful sister in the whole wide world. Happy Birthday, Marge!!! How I wish she could see it personally. She lives half way around the globe and this is as close as she can see and read about it. Anyway, it's the long distance thought that counts.


The inspiration to do this project today came from my sister's special day. I would remember our birthday cakes as little girls. We were so lucky to have our mom bake our special cakes every year for the first 10 years :) The best part is, you get to pick what cake you wanted for your birthday. Come to think of it, that was pure labor of love from our mom. So I dedicate this cake project to you, mom, too!!!




I love how the flowers turned out in this project. I did NOT spray anything to make the cardstock damp nor did I use a crimper or bonefolder to distress the cardstock. I just curled the cardstock as much as I could and the paper was still pliable enough to handle and assemble the flower. It turned out sooo pretty and it looked like those sugar flowers you see in the real cake decorations. Here is the instruction for the flowers. Skip the spraying and the crimping and you'll get the exact look of my flowers on the cake. NOW that Pink Pirouette is coming back, I can use my cardstock freely with no hesitation!!! More projects to come with, Pink Pirouette... WOOOHOOO!!!

There are 12 boxes on this cake plate and my original measurements are just perfect for 8" diameter cake. The opening of the box is from the top which can be accessed by gently holding onto the flower.
