Chocolate Cake--a Stamper's Way

This weekend is a Lily Ink Pad Retreat Weekend, where Bubba is kicked out and the girls stamp, scrapbook, and craft all weekend long. For a treat, I made this for my guests:

Stamps: none
Paper: Flirtatious Designer Series Specialty paper, Whisper White, Melon Mambo
Ink: none
Accessories: White Grosgrain Ribbon, Cake Plate, Circle Scissors, Big Shot, Tasteful Trim Die, Styrofoam Circles

Carrie Cudney showed a cake like this at Convention and I knew I had to make one! Mine's a bit different--two tiers that are thicker compared to her three. I didn't have the It's a Wrap Stamp set, which would be cool, so I used Designer Series Paper.

I added a trim piece that looked "O So Cute" on the styrofoam base, which I covered in Whisper in White, but the chocolates covered the cute trim up!

Wouldn't this cake be great at a shower or birthday party?

Check out my cake topper--I designed that all from my own creative head--A princess crown made using the Candy Wrapper Bigz Die! More on this project on Monday, including a tutorial.

Happy Stamping!
