Layered Cakes Frosted with Embossing Powder

Summer is almost over but I still have a few more birthdays and weddings to attend. What I love about these events are the cakes, especially layered ones! 

I came across a tutorial on this technique while feeding my addiction to YouTube. 

Using paper scraps (who doesn't have a mountain of these), you can cut rectangles to put together into a layered cake. 

Start with a sketch, on cardstock, of the cake that will fit your card and be the base of your card creation. 

Step two is to cut rectangle shapes from various paper scraps to fit the layered shapes in your sketch. 

Step three is to adhere the layers to the sketch. You can choose to outline each layer for a little more 

The final steps are to cut out the cake and emboss it with a layer of regular or ultra high clear, glitter or any other delicious Wow embossing powder to give this cake it's body and luster. 

The mini cakes are great for cards, scrapbook pages or gift tags.

You don't need hours or a special recipe for these sweet paper creations. Make them your own and share your designs with us at our Facebook page!
