Book to Look Cake

While tooling around in Hobby Lobby, I came across this great metal cake try and knew as soon as I saw it that I would make a book to look cake that I had seen on Split Coast Stampers.

I have been working on this for two days and am very pleased with the way it came out, despite my, now purple fingers... This entire cake is made of paper and each wedge opens to reveal a prize when a Stampin Up party is booked. So, if you would like to look inside this beautiful purple cake, book a party with me! I used a template from Stampin Up! I used only the middle layer, the template calls for 11 pieces, but, I had to use twelve to make it fit perfectly on my cake pan.

 I actually used some retired Pink Card stock and retired DSP for the pie pieces,  Cottage wall has always been one of my favorites. But, the purple DSP on top of the pink paper just didn't look right (I didn't know what look I was going for when I started.) So, Eventually, after covering the top of each of pieces with the beautiful purple DSP from Cottage Wall collection, I used my Rich Razzelberry ink and some rubbing alcohol to Stampin Spritzer and happily sprayed away until all my pink card stock turned this beautiful razzelberry color. The flowers are the white paper daisies, which I also sprayed with both razzelberry and pink pirouette to give them a little dimension and the buttons are from sycamore street collection which will be available soon in the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.

I am really pleased with the way it turned out, it has been drying all day (Since I got so carried away with the Stampin Spritzer ;) I used my dryer to help it along, but I didn't want to ruin the integrity of the cardstock so that the pieces could be opened later. Even my teenage sons were impressed with my book to look cake, what do you think?
