This project was inspired by Bren Yule, a fellow CTMH consultant who gave one of these cute little cakes to my friend Mary. When I saw it, I couldn't wait to try this out for myself! I "googled" it to find directions, and there are all kinds of tutorials out there on the web. I picked different elements from several of them, so here is how I ended up making mine.
From page 41 of Cricut Art Philosophy, I cut 2 of the Circle3 scallop circles at 2" for the base of the cake.
I used the CTMH 1 1/4 circle punch to cut out a hole to access the light switch and battery compartment under the light. I hand cut the same size hole from the chipboard scallop circle shape from Dimensional Elements Mixed Shapes sheet.
I cut another 2" scallop circle (circle3) for the top of the cake. To make a hole for the flame, I folded it in half and then in half again, and then cut off the tip of the triangle shape that was made. I also cut small slits at each scallop to make it easier for the edges to fold over the sides of the top.
Then I cut 3 flowers from Page 68 (font, base) at 1 3/4". I inked the edges, and folded over the petals before rolling them up with the Quilling Tool.
I glued these flowers to the top of the cake, around the flame. I added Bitty Pearls to the center of each flower, and around the top on each scallop. For a final touch, I cut out "90" at 3/4" and covered it with Green Glitz Glitter Gel, then glued it to the front.
