Cake & a Birthday Blog Hop

First let me say Happy Easter to everyone! Before we get to the Birthday Blog Hop, I thought we all needed some cake. I mean what is a birthday without cake, right? So for your viewing pleasure:

A 12 Layer cake! (made for Easter) This is what it looked like before I iced it.12layer

Close up of the filling dripping down just because:

And then the finished product, A  5 1/4 inches tall 12 layer cake iced with Extra Special Chocolate Buttercream!

Okay, after you have wiped the slobber off your keyboards and screen, we can start the Birthday Blog hop!

We have not one but two Paper Pretties girls celebrating birthdays today!! Let’s hear a big “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” to Dominique Hornberger & Cindy Haffner!  As is Paper Pretties custom.. we are having a Birthday Blog Hop for them. Hopefully you just came from Alaine Medio. If not, head back to the Paper Pretties Blog to see the beginning.

I used Give a Hoot by Paper Pretties for my card. Colored the owls with copics, stamped their heads two extra times so that I could layer them using Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots.

Since the set is acrylic, I was able to cut the wording apart so I could stamp it how I wanted it on the circle. Added some bling and a bow using the bow easy.
