No Calorie Cakes and other goodies

     If you live in the Georgia area, like me, it the perfect kind of day to finish up some special orders.  With the snow, sleet and ice no one is going anywhere, we are hunkered down, staying warm, and hoping we don't lose electricity.
     I have finally fine tuned my cut file on my Silhouette Cameo to make my 'no calorie' explosion box cakes.  The machine cuts them like butter and I assemble them need to even lick my fingers. My main reason for designing this file was to have consistency when I make these AND I wanted a certain look to the frosting on the side of the cake.
     Instead of my usual two layer cake I have created a single layer cake so I could add a special topper for some people getting ready to celebrate their 50th Birthdays.  I need to get a few of these done.

     I know, I know, when someone turns 50 you are suppose to raz them and give them a hard time, but the request was for this one to be a little more me there is one coming that has some head stones on it, as well as some cute sayings.  The cake below is one I recently finished for sale at my Etsy and Zibbet shops.
I have another almost finished - I really have great fun making these.  The scalloped piece below the cakes is another file I was able to design and cut on my Silhouette -perfect for the consistency I want when I make these.  Off to start designing one for Easter........Thanks for stopping by.

Materials:  Silhouette Cameo, Card Stock, Floral embellishments, rhinestones, hand made flowers, computer, embossing folder, designer paper.
