This project was inspired by Bren Yule, a fellow CTMH consultant who gave one of these cute little cakes to Mary at a recent retreat. When I saw hers, I couldn't wait to try this out for myself! I "googled" it to find directions, and there are all kinds of tutorials out there on the web! I picked different elements from several of them, so here is how I ended up making mine.
From page 41 of Art Philosophy, I cut 2 of the Circle3 scallop circles at 2" for the base of the cake. I used the CTMH 1 1/4 circle punch to cut out a hole to access the light switch and battery compartment under the light. I then hand cut the same size hole from the scallop circle from Dimensional Elements Mixed Shapes.
I then cut another 2" scallop circle (circle3) for the top of the cake. To make a hole for the flame, I folded it in half and then in half again, and then cut off the tip of the triangle shape that was made. I also cut small slits at each scallop to make it easier for the edges to fold over the sides of the top.
Then I cut 3 flowers from Page 68 (font, base) at 1 3/4". I inked the edges, and folded over the petals before rolling them up with the Quilling Tool.
