This posting is going to be a shameless plug wearing my other hat - apart from the Cakeriffic expo I also organise the "From Picture to Page" papercraft show which is on this weekend at The Cardinia Cultural Centre in Pakenham Victoria.
The thing that is common to both of these shows is our
Kids' Creative Corner.
This run by Janita who is an incredible talent and comes up with all sorts of fantastic projects for the kids to make.
Paper Japanese dolls, to paper teddy bears and
...paper cakes! (see how I did that).
From Paper and Glitter comes this paper cake.
This cake found on a pinterest board, has edible paper appliqués with royal icing embroidery technique on top.
This cake reminds me of being in school and cutting out shapes from coloured paper. They are in fact fondant.
This three-tier cake from So You Think You're Crafty is made from paper. Each tier is made up of eleven individual paper cake slices that are attached to each other. The pieces come apart easily, so when the party is over, each guest gets to take a piece of cake home.
Fill each cake slice with candy or any other special treat.
The cake makes a great centerpiece. You can use an infinite amount of color combinations based on the occasion. Imagine how beautiful the cake would look made out of white paper for a wedding! Make it out of pink or blue for a baby shower just like this one from Paper Creations by Kristin.
She has heaps of other samples on her blog for themed paper cakes.
Our papercraft show is on this weekend at
The Cardinia Cultural Centre in Pakenham Vic.
Kids under 16 are free entry as are reluctant husbands. Everyone else pays $10.00.
Back on "real" cakes next week.
