Zero Calorie Cake

Today is my friend Linda's birthday.  Last week when I saw her I gave her a little surprise.  It's a zero calorie birthday cake.  Not my original idea I must add - you know I'm a great copycat!  I saw the original here.  It is really simple like a real cake - as long as you have all the right ingredients.  Personalizing with your own creative flair is always welcome! 

You will need a battery operated tea light (you can get 2 in a package for $1 at the Dollar Tree).  You'll need some pretty papers, flower and leaf punches and the SU exclusive Flower Folds Die.  The link above has a great tutorial.

No cake would be complete without it's own little bakery box. This I will take credit for.  I used some Sahara Sand cs and made a little 1 1/2 x 2 box pattern.  Gave it a band of coordinated dsp and a ribbon and added some more punched flowers and leaves to the top.

I love this project!!!  It's cute, inexpensive, and can help you use up scraps of all that beautiful paper you have from your cardmaking or scrapbooking. 

Oh, and by the way - HAPPY BIRTHDAY LINDA!!!
