Happy 40th

Good evening, I know this post isn’t about a card but I really wanted to share with you what I was working on last week for a very good friend of mine who turned 40 and her darling husband and sister threw her a surprise party. I can’t believe it but it actually was a surprise, she had no idea. I thought instead of a gift I would make the cake as my gift. it took me about three days to make and in total about 12 hours to finish.

Here is my gift to Megan, sorry about all the photos:

The top with all those hand moulded flowers, although I did use a cutter to get the shape then I moulded them in my hands to bend the petals and get the shape right. no I didn’t count how many were on the cake.


Using the Cricut cake we cut out this fabulous decoration, thanks to another wonderful Friend Julia.


Can you see the embossing, I pressed a folder against the icing before it set too hard. I rolled all the little balls by hand.
