Layers of Color Cake Decorating Party! ;)

Welcome to the

Layers of Color

Cake Decorating Party!

If you've made it over her from Iwona's Blog, you're in the right place!  If not, make sure you don't miss out on all the "deliciousness" and head on over to Layers of Color to start at the beginning.  :)

We have a line-up of fantastic crafting chefs that will inspire you to get into your creative kitchens and whip up some delicious artwork!  Come whet your appetite with our creative paper cake slice boxes that are marvelously decorated with Layers of Color.  I wanted my cake slice to have a 'lid" so I went and got my template from HERE. The top part of my "slice" pulls right off!  I plan on filling it with some yummies and giving this slice to someone special for their birthday!  :)

This is truly how you can have your cake and eat it too! Enjoy a tasty cake fresh from the oven,
while being creative with Layers of Color, pretty papers, laces, flowers, and even jewelry!

I stenciled "Delicious Dots" stencil in Memento ink Desert Sand to give the "cake" part of my slice some delicious texture!  For the icing on the side edge of my slice I used Inkssentials Enamel Accents in white (got the black and white one in my prize box from winning the WCMD contest!).  The white border is a Martha Stewart border punch.

In this up close shot, you see how I used the "Floweret" cling stamp and one of the jewels from "Granny's Jewelry" clear art stamp set to create the top border of my cake slice.  I colored both images using my Copic markers.

Here is the back shot of my cake slice.   I added the pearls to give my cake an elegant flair.  :)

My lovely bottom border is a mix of the "Floweret" cling stamp, three flowers and some leaves from "Flowering Gems" clear art stamp set, and the adorable strawberry from "Nature Walk" clear art stamp set.

Here is the view from the top!  :)  "Flowering Gems" clear art stamp set and "Nature Walk" clear art stamp set were used to create this border.

Tasty, isn't it? Let's have some more!...You're invited to feast your eyes on the Layers of Color Design Team and Guest Designer's Cake Party treats!  Following me is my sweet friend, Jennie Harper!

Janice, hugs and blessings to you today. I love your piece of cake. The pearls make it look so elegant. The stenciled sides and the punched edges look so pretty. Now, I do have to say, as pretty as this piece of cake is, it can't compare to the wonderful real cakes you have made. I bet it does have less calories though. Thanks for sharing your wonderful creation with us!
