Introducing...

...The newest Jenni B Original creation!

Take a look at this fun altered art faux cake! I think I had more fun creating this cake than any faux dessert I have ever made. And I've made a lot of desserts!


I know you think this cake looks neat, but wait until you hear about this surprise: all of the images and the colored ribbons are interchangeable and it's a cake for all Holidays! Mini postcard images can be switched out for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter, and the Fourth of July. There are even birthday pictures so you can change the pictures when someone special has a birthday coming up.


The parts of the cake are so DETAILED. I think that's why I had a lot of fun creating it. Each removable image has a nice back side with a little velcro that keeps it in place. All of the images have tiny tinsel around the edge. And I even included 2 extra images for each holiday so you can pick your favorites! See that pennant on the top of the cake? The images (one is in the back) are even reversible there and you can put any one you want in those spots! You can't really tell in the pictures very well, but each little photo card (the cake comes with 70!) has glitter accents in two colors. And get this - the entire top of the cake is removable so you can take it off for storage (but you'll NEVER want to put this thing away!).



The cake isn't totally finished yet, either. On the bottom layer of the cake, I have yet to attach the faux icing top knots with silver dragees (fake, of course) to some of the scallops. I was just too excited to wait any longer before posting about this beauty.

The cake itself measures 8" in height, and then with the topper it ends up being about 14" tall. I just think it would be the cutest decoration for your front entry. And it will be so much fun decorating it with all of the ribbons and picture cards included for every Holiday.
