Faye's Birthday Cake

I had some extra flowers left so I decided to make Faye a birthday cake.

  For this cake, I created my own template.   Here is how.

13 - 2" x 11" score @ 4 1/4, 6 1/4, 10 1/2

Fold it like this.  I used paper clip because I didn't glue the piece together.

Then I placed the triangle on a piece of paper and traced around it.  Then I cut an extra inch on each side and an extra 1/2" on the bottom.  I used this as my template for the cake top and bottom.

Here is the side view of the cake.  I used 1/2 of the oval scallop for the outside icing. It fit perfectly.

Cake open at the top.

Thanks for looking.


This is my last post for August. I will return to posting again September 1st.

Thanks for stopping by.

THAT's so clever to create your own template. I have a sizziz die and it uses more paper so I have been avoiding getting to use it......I'll have to give this a try some time.

TFS your creativty and cleverness!
