Christmas Cake a la SVG Cuts - Guest Post!


I am SOOOOO super excited today to be sharing with you my first guest post for SVG Cuts, WHOOP, WHOOP! If I could do a back flip I would, lol ;) 

If you didn't know it before, you should know now that I LOVE SVG Cuts and have been a huge fan since finding them back in 2011! In fact they were one of the reasons I started blogging. I have always loved to craft and after making some of the coolest things out of paper with their files, I was hooked and I knew I had to share it with others!

So for this project I thought it would be awesome to mash up two of my favorite crafts... Paper and cake decorating! Well, what do you think of my Christmas Cake a la SVG Cuts? It almost looks too good to eat doesn't it?!

Please check out my guest post on the SVG Cuts blog for complete instructions :)



I would have never been able to create these gorgeous flowers out of fondant, but paper... piece of cake, haha!

When I was a little girl, the kids in the family would always fight over the sugar flowers on the cake. Did anyone else do that? Maybe we were just weird?

I'm sure if you make some like these out of paper, the moms might have to fight the kids for them, lol!

If any of you have ever made a fondant flower, you will know how time consuming and difficult it can be. Even when they are done they can be quite fragile. That's why you pay cake decorators the big bucks! But why pay them when you can do it yourself?! If you already are a papercrafter all you need now is a cake! If you can't make a fondant cake, don't worry bake your favorite cake and sprinkle some icing sugar over it, or even easier buy one and just embellish it!

Just think of the cakes you could make using paper toppers, the possibilities are endless!


Make the flowers like you would for any other project. Then all you have to do is  hot glue them to the end of a toothpick or a skewer. By doing this, you elevate the flowers and protect the papers from any grease absorption that may happen when using paper. See image below.


Here's what the cake looks like from the side...















and here's a peak inside the cake! Add some food coloring to  the cake batter and you'll end up with a fun and festive Christmas Cake! Yummy!!!


















If you are interested in making this project, here are the SVG Cuts files you will need:
