Just back from a glorious week in Wales. Before I went away a friend asked me if I could make a penguin cake / card for her Daughters 16th birthday. At first I was going to do a round version using the Arty Farty cake template but then I came across a file for the silhouette for a three tier topsy turvy cake which was very similar to the birthday cake she was having. So here’s my creation.
I followed the colour scheme of her birthday cake. The bottom two tiers are boxes, so you can take them apart and put things in them. The base was cut with a grand spellbinders die. I found some penguins and an igloo on the net, which I printed and cut out. I also added some polar white flower soft for the snow and some little white pom poms for snowballs. I also punched some snowflakes from glitter card to put around the sides and added a “16” with peel offs.
I used the template for a presentation box from the Arty Farty cake design.
I’ve put acetate in all the windows and peel offs around the edges. Added an organza ribbon bow and a tag to match.
