This cake is just so funky, funky but chic. It's our fabulous inspiration for this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge. Wouldn't you love to have this at your next birthday party? I would, I don't even care what it tastes like, sweet or not, I just want to look at it. Well, now that it's on my blog I guess I can look at anytime I want.
This week our sponsor is DRS Designs. They graciously let the design pick a stamp to use for this week. When I saw this cake stamp I knew it was the one for me.
Originally I thought I would paper piece the cake with zebra paper but as I was looking through my stash the white and cream printed paper jumped out at me so I gave it a try. When I was looking through my stash a pack of pink prints kept finding their way into my hands and onto my desk. I thought I would use them for different layers but it occurred to me to use different papers above and below the squiggled lines on the cake so I tried that out. In person the three different paper stand out more. After putting the icing on the cake I stamped out the flowers again, cut them out and added then to the card, put a some pink bling on the side stems and a little stickles on the candles. In the end this cake is pretty dang cute too.
