Wedding Cake Made Easy!

Greetings all. It's sneaky-peek time from the My Time Made Easy team. We're gearing up for an awesome pre-summer set of beautiful goodies. I'm starting today with a brand new template called Oh Bee Hive! Yes - it's an adorable bee hive template - BUT WAIT - it can also be a cake! Now how cool is that? My daughter's best friend is getting married and the girls are looking for decoration ideas so I decided to make and decorate this template as a wedding cake.

 I started with some stunning cardstock from the Paper Temptress - it's my favorite "fancy" wedding CS - called Laser Luster (I think). I created my cake from the cardstock then I set about decorating. I started with some pearls on a strand - colored each strand with copics and glued to the cake with Zip Dry. I used a flower from Hobby Lobby as my cake topper then filled in with yellow and white tiny flowers. I think the girls would prefer all yellow flowers on the layers- I just didn't have enough to do the entire cake this time. If they decide to use this idea obviously we can buy plenty of tiny flowers to decorate with.

Here's a view looking down on the cake.

A close up of the flower from HL - it was in the wedding section and was $.99!  They often go on sale so it would be an inexpensive alternative to making your own paper flowers if you are short on time (which I was).

A final peek at the cake with the two champagne glasses to give you a sense of scale. Since I cut this with my cricut it would be EASY to rescale it larger if needed. I was able to cut 3 side pieces per sheet of cardstock but I could have scaled it way up and cut ONE side piece per cardstock for a much larger cake) but I rather like the mini version. You can go wild with decorating this adorable cake - for weddings, for bridal showers, for baby showers or even for a birthday! AND don't forget - Lauren will also show you how this makes up into a cute, cute, cute little bee hive!

Please hop over to my fellow team mates, Monique Hansen and Debbie Marcinkiweicz as they both have some absolutely DELICIOUS ideas to share with you as well.

See you again tomorrow for our group post for the May release for My Time Made Easy.
