4 Tiers Cake

Hello,

I mentioned last week that I made a 4 tiers cake for a rehearsal dinner.  I forgot to take the pictures before I gave them to Lynn.  However, Lynn took the pictures and sent them to me but I accidentally deleted the pictures.  I told Lynn about it and she kindly sent me again.  It was from her iphone so the pictures are different from my usual ones.

The bottom layer had 17 boxes, next were 13 boxes,  the third layer had 12 boxes and the top layer had 11 boxes.  I made 61 boxes total but not all of them were assembled on the cake.



Again, I made each cake piece looking like this.

 I started this cake boxes back in February because there were so many pieces I had to make.   It took me over 1 hour just  to cut the flowers for the roses. Then I had to make 61 origami bows in 3 different sides. After that  I had to stickle the bows  and added pearl to the bow, cut and emboss the outside of the cake boxes and I had to make 51 tags to go in the box.  You got the idea of how much work it was but I love every minute of it and I would do it all over again without hesitation.  I saw Lynn again after the rehearsal dinner and she told me that everyone love the cake!  That was a music to my ears. :)

I am entering this to:

Make It Monday - anything goes
The Paper Player - anything goes
 4 Craftychicks - No stamping

As the weather getting nicer and warmer now, I had so many things to do around the house that I had to reduce my blogging time to twice a week.  I will be posting on Monday and Thursday from now on.

Thank you so much for checking in on me again.

Helen
