Paper Birthday Cake

Last year in August my sister, Lizzy made a birthday cake for me and there were many little birthday notes, and memory notes along with Hershey's kisses.  It touched my heart.  I recently throw the cake away.  It had 12 slices which were cake slice shape boxes.  Well I decided to make her cake out of boxes that I made.  There are 5 layers, a 7 inch, 6 inch, 5 inch, 4 inch and a 3 inch.  I made 94 hand made flowers using the George cricut Flower 1, then I used a halloween Cricut Cartridge to cut 2 different borders to use as piping.  The candles I think was from the cricut Sweet Treat cartrigdge. I cut 8 no. 5 and 8 no O and glue them together to make my own chipboard.  This is a tip I borrowed from my scrapbooking friend, Misty, and then use yellow/orange stickles for the flame of the cake.

Seen your link posted at Pinky's and just had to come and check out your cake.
It is just amazing and beautiful! I am sure your sister just loved the work in this beauty.
I do many cakes as gifts out of paper and just so enjoy peoples faces when they get them.
