Cakes Made with Cricut Cake

Paper crafters know what a Cricut is, but for those of you who don’t know what it is, it’s a home electronic die-cutting machine that cuts paper in countless shapes to be used for card making and scrap-booking. When the company that makes it came out with something called the Cricut Cake ($218), Cricut junkies everywhere gasped. A personal die-cutting machine for fondant and gum paste?? Amazing.

How to make paper cake treat boxes.

I am totally digging these paper cake treat boxes, which, when assembled into an entire cake, could easily put any real cake to shame. A paper pastry like this could be used for a multitude of occasions where party favors are involved.

The secret ingredient of this project is ewillow’s template for the individual slices. (If you happen to have a Cricut, which is NOT NECESSARY to make the cake, there’s instructions for a shortcut to bypass the template route.) Other stuff we’ll need to make them include:

  • scissors
  • hole punch
  • bone folder for scoring
  • double-sided tape
  • assorted card stock, ribbons, punches and embellishments
