Well I am sharing a tutorial today- I have made a decorated cake as a gift for my future daughter-in-law.
I started with a great Cake Slice Box Set-Two Tier. and Dress & Tuxedo Box Set.
Now I know I could have cut or made my own patterns- BUT please!!!
There is nothing better then having each piece perfectly cut and scored. No guess work was needed to make sure it all was the same.
Terry has great quality papers and I can customize colors and textures.
When I told Terry I wanted to make a gift for my DIL she mentioned this great idea- and told me to choose my colors. Do you know you have two color choices you can make out of dozens of colors and paper textures to make this cake design?
I really thought about making it with the brides color choices- red and white base- but went with Lily White for all the pieces.

This is what the cake slices look like flat-I also showed how I refolded all the score lines before I started assembling. I also used my ATG gun as an added way to put together. I did also use some
Killer White Tear-able Tacky Tape - 1/4" to all the flaps.
*** Let me add that both are not needed only one, I used both since this finished cake had to be wrapped and sent 1600 miles and I wanted to make sure it held together through everything***
Here is a couple views of the cake slices assembled- I used the Atg tape in between to hold the slices together.
Tissue paper was used inside each cake slice to help hold the shape- again this isn't necessary but I knew I was adding a lot on the top in weight and then sending in the mail.
Assembling the tuxedo went together very quickly- just a little tape to hold the shirt in place.
I folded the lapels and taped them down to hold in place.
Now the brides dress was customized by me to match my future DIL's dress- used some white tissue paper and white tulle to make.
I have included a few extra views of this finished project.Ribbon, pearl bead trims, tulle, and small red paper flowers are from Hobby Lobby I also purchased the Prima flowers from Hobby Lobby.
