Nicolette's Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Happy Birthday Nicolette!!
and Welcome to Day 1 of Nicolette's Birthday Bash Blog Hop, if you have come from Cheryl at Cards by CG then you are in the right place. If not, please consider going to Nicolette's blog and start at the beginning so you do not miss a single fabulous project! This hop is in honor of Nicolette's Birthday!!!
My project for Day 1 is the Cake Taker for the Birthday Cake!! I used a $5.99 cake taker from Target and used vinyl, MTC and SCAL to create this Fancy Cake Taker!  I used the Font Gando BT to create the Cake word art and layered it with all three colors.

The dots are three sizes, 1.25 inches, 1 inch and 3/4 inches and I cut 4 large, 6 medium and 6 small circles in each of the three colors. I placed them randomly and the cake slices on either side of the Cake word art are from Lettering Delights Oishii svg set.

On the Top, I added the ribbon bow, I bought the ribbon at Wal-mart and hand tied it. I attached it to the Cake Taker with a Velcro dot so that it is removable.

The Cake Taker is completely Hand Washable and once I fill it with a delicious Cake the Birthday Celebration can begin!!
Be sure to come back tomorrow for my 2nd project and also my Joy's Life Design Team weekly project, I actually will have two projects since my Joy's Life project isn't a Birthday project! Please leave a comment and someone who follows me and leaves a comment on this post and tomorrows post will win some sweet blog candy!!
You next stop is Krista over at Krista's Paper Cafe happy Hopping!!!



Such a great idea, I love how the bow is removable!!

Very nice, I would never of thought of decorating a cake taker. The one i have is 1970's gold and clear top on from tupperware and it definitely needs a facelift.

Tammi! Forget about "Blog Candy", I want the cake carrier! Are you planning to keep it or sell it? I KNOW I could make one, but yours is so perfect already, why bother? (-:
Are you planning any visits to your relatives near me any time soon? Maybe we could have some CAKE!!
