Birthday Cake

In April through September, there’s usually a lot of Birthdays…..more than in the rest of the months of the year. Why that is….well….you can figure out for yourself 😉

It’s no different in my Family so deciding on making the adorable Birthday Cake from Simply Crafty SVGs was a very easy choice.

The hardest was picking out paper – it always is 😀 This time I picked some Stacks from DCWV – “Watercolor Ombre” and “Unicorns and Rainbows.”

The bottom piece is made from Tonic Studios “Holo Waves” and the cake is decorated with several Prima Flowers.

This first one I made didn’t turn out exactly like I wanted it to, so I made it into a hat instead 😉

Lagkage hat

I glued the lid shut so it doesn’t fall of when wearing it and used some clear elastic thread so it will stay in place on top of your head – my head in this case 😉

The next cake was more to my satisfaction and I decorated it with lots of small Prima roses and made the Display Stand also from Simply Crafty SVGs, for it to stand on.

Mmmmmm good enough to eat. And yes it is a box but I didn’t have any yummys to put inside this time (I properbly ate them) 😀

Here’s a close-up

Horrible Cake

Halloween is sneaking up on us and will arrive before we know it…..so it’s best to be prepared and get those decorations done.

It’s my favorite time of year – Honestly – I think Halloween all year long. When I see a new kit or file, my first thought is: Can this be Halloweenified?

The files I’m using for the project I’m about to show you, could!

Imagine Morticia Adams in the kitchen, baking a Birthday cake. Wouldn’t be just any normal cake now, would it? Nahhhh I imagine it something like this:

A moldy cake with bloody filling topped with spiderwebs and naturally an axe to chop it up into fitting pieces. Served on a creepy stand with blood dripping down over the edge.

I know I have a vivid imagination, but I couldn’t help myself (again)

I used several Simply Crafty SVGs files for this one – namely the Cake Slice Box (downsized by 50%) , the Bloody Hatchet (downsized by 25%) and the all new Cake Plate/Display Stand (Made a bit bigger to fit the scale)

I used AC Cardstock in Black, Rouge, Chocolate, Melon and Leaf along with patterned paper from Authentique’s “Tricky” Collection and some grey Bling Bazzill Cardstock.

I also used a Swirly Embossing folder from Sizzix to emboss the panels on the foot of the stand.

The blood splatter on the stand is a design from the Silhouette Design Store (Design ID #97008) by Sophie Gallo.

The cake slices (I made 8 for a whole cake) opens up so you can put some treats inside. I was thinking about using this as place cards, where people just find their own name and sit where ever they want to 😉

All of this is so easy to make and decorate – just let your imagination run wild!

That was what I wanted to share with you today – stay tuned for more creepy, bloody Halloween decor as we get closer and closer to the scary but awesome Halloween.
