cake making


...just when I think it's safe to stay out of the kitchen, along comes the 365 Card Challenge with the photo of a cake as my inspiration! Oh, don't get me wrong, I love to bake, but my cakes are never pretty on the outside...

which reminds me, I think I'd rather be pretty on the inside...oh yes, I should get back to my paper cake. And paper piecing the cake makes it attractive on the outside, don't you think!

I'd love to share a slice with you...it's a yellow cake with cherries.

Recipe: Basic Grey Lemonade and Urban Prairie
Flourishes 2 step Cake Decorating Set
Stampin Up Argyle
Memento Tuxedo Black
VersaMark and silver pearl embossing powder.
GP white cs
gem brads

I love your pieced cake......almost as much as eating cake..notice I said almost! Hardly anything is as good as cake, unless it's eclairs, ho-hos, candy, etc. LOL!

Your cake is awesome - love the paper piecing on it - those cherries just look so cute! I'm sort of 'stuck' on this challenge! I'll go scrub or paint something, and while I'm hard at work and idea will surface! Thanks for dropping by and signing up to follow me - I have done the same here this a.m. Your blog is AMAZING! I love your style, and I'm headed over to AAS now to look around! Wishing you all good blessings for the day...

I love your cake! Stunning card!

I make the world's ugliest cakes. My kids always look at me with very stricken eyes and say..."but it tastes GREAT mom!" LOL My cakes look like they've been stepped on after I finish frosting them!
