Cake Kit

I got this idea for a Christmas present for my friend from Becky Roberts (see here). My friend (who now has 3 kids) is really getting into making cakes (from Birthday Cakes to gorgeous cupcakes for kids), so for Christmas I decided her present would have a Cake Theme, and this packaging for the cake mix and accessories was perfect.

Inside the box was a Betty Crocker Cake Mix and 2 different icing tubes and a 3 pack of small icing tubes. To go with this box was a Cupcake Carrier and kids party cookbook. I think she loved it (apparently a cake carrier had been on her list for a while) - love it when a plan comes together.

I didn't have a lot of time to decorate the package so I used a Magnolia image that I had coloured in some time ago and the Yummy stamp from last years Sale-A-Bration. Ohhh that reminds me, Sale-A-Bration starts again soon (25th January), and is a great opportunity to get a free stamp set with every order of $100.

To go with the pack I did up a quick Christmas Card using a Christmas Magnolia stamp and Stampin' Up! Real Red cardstock and ribbon, teamed with some Ski Slope DSP from the now ended Spring Mini (loved that paper). I added some dazzling diamonds to her hat (but it often doesn't show up well in photos).

I am loving being on holidays from my full time job at the moment, I am reorganising my craft room (I reorganise my craft room every year, and helps to get me inspired to create when I can actually find everything). Better get back to it.

  1. This is FABULOUS - I've always wanted to make one of these - but I'm known for NOT using cake mixes so worry I'll get teased - LOL.


Thanks for all your comments, they are really appreciated.
