Birthday Cake

Hello Crafty Friends!!!!
Sherri here from Sherri's Crafty Place I am so happy to be here and share a project with you today.....
My project today is a Birthday Cake I made for my BFF, it was her Birthday this past Friday, I do have the Cricut Cake, but I really didn't have the time to roll out the fondant and really get too fancy with it, so instead I used my Cricut Expression, no I did not put food stuffs in to it, I used it to cut a piece of paper, ok I know this is sounding weird now, but stay with me and I'll show you what I did....
So what I did was bake a cake, after the cake was cooled I wrapped in plastic wrap and placed in freezer, it should be in freezer for a good 5 or 6 hours, even over night would be good. Then I measured my cake pan, it was 6x10. So now I get out my Gypsy and make a rectangle using those measurements, then on a new page I found a Butterfly shape, ( she loves Butterflies)
The image I used was from the Stamping Solutions cart, I used the Blackout Feature, size is 9.01 x 5.86
next I cut my Butterfly shape out, using my Expression and computer copy paper, then I took my cake out of the freezer, placed my image on top of my cake and using a serrated knife I started cutting away cake....


I choose this Butterfly because it did not have antenas, Now I did not put a filling in this cake, if you wanted to I would but it back in the freezer, for an hour or 2 then slice it in half and put in filling.
Here I am icing the cake, she loves pink....
and I love purple....Unfortunatly it was a very rainy day, so I am so sorry the pic is soo dark, I had some batter left some I used it up by making cupcakes....I wish I had more time to spend on the cake, I would have liked to add more colour, next time, I just Love using my Expression, and I Love that I can use it to make a shape and then make a shape cake with it......
I hope you all enjoyed my post for today, a different way of using your Expression. I would love to see any cakes you make, Easter is coming, I think I may try a Bunny shape cake for this weekend....

and here is a quick card I made for her, using her favourite cart, Paper Lace, I used PL to cut out the butterfly lace background, the I used my Maya Mist to give it a little shimmer, The stamp is a Smirk Stamp, and I used ProMarkers to colour my images....
Thanks so much for stopping by today.....I hope you all have a Crafty week.....
