There are so many gorgeous styles of wedding cake out there and maybe you had a really hard time narrowing your choice down to one. Well, now your wedding can showcase them all! Just recreate your favourites using your scrapbooking supplies. Or maybe you want to recreate your cake so every table can have its own mini wedding cake.
These cakes are made from boxes which you can fill with sweets or other treats for your guests to enjoy plus you’ll have a keepsake to enjoy long after the real one has been eaten.
To recreate my cake, you will need from the Digichick:
- That Little Box by Geeky Diva Designs
- Paper Flower Templates Set 1 by The Cutting Files
- Balance Paper Pack by Danielle Engebretson
- White card
- Some embossing folders and a manual die cutting machine
- A pearl pen
- Some brads
First, cut your boxes and their lids.
On my cake, the smallest flat topped box uses the short large boxbase file. The other two boxes are increased in size to 120% and 140%. If you’re using a digital die cutter to cut the boxes you’ll need one that can take 12″ x 12″ paper for the largest box.
You’ll need to emboss the sides of the boxes before assembly and if your using a pearl pen to decorate, it’s a good idea to do that at this stage as well. Remember to take care to have your embossing folder the same way when embossing so you don’t end up with a debossed side by mistake.
Once your boxes are assembled, print your papers and cut the flowers. I’ve used flower no 2.
Each bloom is made up of three flowers, two the same size and one slightly smaller. Again I’ve resized the flowers on the larger boxes by 120% and 140%. Once you have shaped to flowers to your liking use the brad to assemble and then adhere them to the box lids. I used a hot glue gun to do this, but you can use your favourite adhesive.
For the top of the cake, I used the large domed lid cut at 80%. I decorated it with strips of paper and some more blooms. You can see the cake I used as my inspiration here.
