Kylie's Paper Birthday Cake

I realized that I forgot to share pictures of Kylie's paper birthday cake. I made the cake for Kylie's party favors for her 4th birthday. I was able to fit a sucker, squishy ball, Happy Feet ring, and a mini box of Nerds candy in each triangle cake piece.
I got this cake idea from a post at CircleofCrafters.com. I had seen a paper cake before so I decided to give it a try. I found a template at Mirkwood Designs for cake pieces and copied them at 75% so that I could cut 2 from each piece of 12x12" paper. I then made 8 pieces, cut them out, scored, folded and taped them. All of the papers I used to decorate the cake are Heidi Grace from the It's My Party line (thanks Deea for the paper!) I used my Fiskars Lacy Days of Summer border punch on the pink patterned paper and the blue paper is punched with my Fiskars A Dozen Roses embossing/border punch. The blue paper is flocked and reminded me of frosting. The center flowers are layered on some punched Fiskars Oopsie Daisy Xtra large squeeze punch flowers and punched vines that I outlined with Sakura souffle pens. The punch under the candles is Fiskars Bling Bling small squeeze punch.

This took hours to make but even Cameron said that is was well worth the time. And Kylie did have a real cake...strawberry shortcake with fresh strawberries and whippy cream. Yumm!
