For my daughter Claire's 15th birthday, I wanted her cake to look really pretty but we had to do it on a small budget. It would be nice to throw my kids big, swanky parties, but the thing is, not everybody can afford to do that. So I had to be a little bit creative to make my teenage daughter's birthday cake look kinda expensive.
The Silhouette blog gives freebies every Tuesday, and one of the free shapes is the 3d peony shape. Click here to see their tutorial.
I remember seeing a post on the Hostess with the Mostess about decorating cakes with paper flowers. You can click here to check it out.
So we bought a plain white cake from our favorite bakery.
And I decided to combine the idea from the Silhouette blog, with the cake decorating idea from the Hostess with the Mostess blog, and this is what I came up with.
I also made the paper peony for the gift bag, just like they did in the Silhouette blog video tutorial.
I already had the materials I needed to make the flowers so I didn't have to buy anything, well, except for the cake. I was really happy with how it turned out. Thank goodness we have these wonderful blogs that give us really useful ideas. (^_^)
