Kiki Cake!

We're in the home stretch!  Woo Hoo!  Only a few more days till you can adopt these pups or kitty to take home with you!  

Today I wanted to share a special cake I made just for this occasion.  I found some small round paper mache boxes at my local craft store and since they were stacking boxes, I thought it would make a cute wedding-like cake.

First I painted it with a coat of gesso since I wanted it to look more like frosting than a paper bag.  Then I adhered paper along the sides of the boxes and found circle dies to cut out the circles for the top of  the lid.  After adhering those down, I adhered some brown ribbon to the sides of the lid.

 Then it was time to embellish!  Dug through my stash and pulled out a mix of Prima, Petaloo, Wild Orchid Crafts and I Am Roses flowers in browns and creams.  Then for the cake topper!  I adhered Kiki to some acetate for stability and cut out around her so that she was stiff and would not fall down. I left a small tab on the bottom so that I could adhere it down to the box, which seems to have worked.

Each box's lid can still be opened to put in little gifts or treasures.  The smallest box is very tiny, so it would have to be something small... like jewelry?!  Just dreaming...

So now for some more birthday fun!  Out of all of our images, how many of them have live animals (no toys, stuffed animals, etc.)?  Again, if you think you know, please email me at with your answer.  The first person to email me the correct answer will win a prize!

So much fun yah?  Speaking of fun... go check out our crafty sisters to see what else they've been up to...
