I am super excited about this project. I spent most of the day creating it yesterday, and then filmed the video last night.
I have seen these cake boxes before, but I have not been able to find a tutorial on how to make it. I scoured the net a couple of days ago and came across one created by Sharon Field at createbyu.blogspot.com, but I found the tutorial a little tricky to follow and her box opened at the top and I really wanted a box that would close properly at the back so I could fill it with whatever I wanted.
The decoration however came from a picture on Pinterest from Elizabeth Hurst. The picture has her blog as animalscraps.blogspot.com, but I couldn’t find a tutorial for it 🙁
So the task was set. I REALLY wanted to create this cake, so I set about working out how to do it SIMPLY! The biggest barrier is that even a 12″ piece of card stock would not fit around this cake slice. I didn’t want a join at the point on the front of the cake – it needed to be a nice crisp fold. So after a few hours of trying (and getting it wrong) and a few prototypes later……I DID IT!
Here it is…….. What do you think? …… Good enough to eat!
It also looks great with a white ribbon tied around the middle.
You can find the YouTube video here showing how to make this.
Feel free to recreate, but I would appreciate linking back to this post. I would love to see what you make 🙂
