Birthday Cake Explosion

This week I've been working on an explosion box with a cake inside. I like how it turned out but I can see a few mistakes. We are always the most critical of our own work aren't we. So here's some pics of it. If your interested in how I did it, post a comment telling me and I'll do a tutorial after Thanksgiving.

I made a couple more "cakes" to do some more boxes. You could also leave out the cake and make the traditional explosion box album but I wanted something a bit different to use as a gift. Everyone likes cake and this one has no calories!

  1. Thank you for sharing your project Deb. I would be interested in having a look at the tutorial. Hopefully, it isn't too difficult as I would love to have a go at this.

  2. Suze, it's not all that hard just time consuming and I'll be happy to do the tutorial for you. Look for it the beginning of next week :)

  3. It's just darling! If there are mistakes, I can't see them!
