My daughter is the CANDY QUEEN. Chocolate, Peanut Butter M&M's, Swedish Fish, Skittles, Cookies and Cream Kisses, and Twizzler's just to name a few. With her love of candy and desire for lots and lots of candy for her friend party I decided we needed to eliminate cake and ice cream. I didn't think it would be that big of a deal to a 14 year old, BOY WAS I WRONG! She almost cried when I told her I hadn't ordered a cake. I had to think and act even faster. I had just finished uploading some new shapes into Lori Whitlock's shop and I remembered seeing the Cake Slice Box. My first thought was CAKE, there is my cake. Thankfully (for me anyway) a few of the girls couldn't come so I only had 10 cake boxes to make. It made a PERFECT cake.
LOOK at how cute that is. I wanted to make some Rolled Flowers, but due to a machine malfunction, amazing customer support call with Silhouette for 30 minutes, a trip to meet a friend and grab her Cameo, then back home to set up the Candy Bar, I just did not have time. Ever have days like that? Well I did, and decided it looked cute just the way it was and didn't tell anyone about the flower option. None of the girls noticed because they were too busy oogling the cute 'cake', which it truly is.
So first we set up the Candy Bar with a variety of candies in all the large glass jar's I could find. It looked really pretty, wish I would have gotten a better photo of the Candy Bar. When the girls came in to get 'cake,' I told them to grab a piece and start filling their 'cake.' They LOVED it, what 13/14 year old wouldn't love a candy cake? They were so cute!
I was hoping my daughter would be careful and save her piece, so I could take a close up photo, but she was not. She put cookies and cream popcorn into her box and the grease from the white chocolate ruined it, so this is what you get. I placed the cake on a white milk glass cake plate I inherited from my grandma. It was so fun to use it for her party and dress up this cute paper cake.
I kept the cake simple because I wanted to embellish with flowers. The brown of the cake is a textured cardstock. The turquoise and white were just plain cardstock, nothing fancy. This was a use up my stash kindof project. Overall, the party was a success, my daughter had a blast (and cake) and I am a way cool mom according to her friends, which never hurts, right?
Thanks for looking. If you are interested in the SVG file it is available at Lori Whitlock's shop
