Now - onto my project!

From the moment I first saw this cake at Convention in the Gold Coast I loved it, and knew that it would be my first purchase when the catalogue went live on 2nd June!

Sweet Stack Project Kit

This cake comes as a kit called Sweet Stack Project Kit, and it includes everything needed to make the stunning cake that you see above! The only thing I have added is stamps and ink (of course!) - there is a matching stamp set (also called Sweet Stack) that fits it perfectly - and the Watermelon Wonder Lace Trim.

Cake close up

My favourite part of the cake is the glimmer paper candles and the banner that you can personalize to say whatever you like! I have had it on display at the Cake & Craft Fair in Whangarei over the past weekend and it has received plenty of ooohs and aaaahs from passersby.

But what if you give away all your cake pieces?? No problem, Stampin' Up! has also bought out the Cutie Pie die for the Big Shot - it makes cakes the same as the larger cakes in the Sweet Stack Project Kit! Pictured below is a piece of cake I made for my Annual Catalogue launch:

Cutie Pie Cake die

It was so quick and easy to make, including the cute little bows which are also part of the die set!

I wasn't sure whether I NEEDED this kit when it came out...but I think you've done a good job convincing me! I'm off to order it now, thanks for the inspiration :)

Great ideas. I might have to put this on my wish list!

Great minds Ria! I can't wait to make up my Sweet Stack kit. The bow you made on your cake slice "pops" and looks great. Thanks for sharing. Kelly x

Such a lovely kit & you've shown it & the dies off beautifully. Love the little striped bow especially - so sweet. Thanks for sharing. Di :-)
