The theme for last night’s In the Zone show was the number one Billboard hit for this week in 1950 “If I Knew You Were Coming I’d Have Baked a Cake”. Joining hosts Robi Cohen and Cyn Gagen was our very special guest Eileen Hull who shared a great project using her Sizzix Bigshot, one of her amazing Sizzix scoreboard dies that makes the cutest cake box and believe it or not, aluminum foil! It was so adorable and would make a great little favour or centerpiece for a 25th anniversary celebration. We were also lucky enough to get a sneak peek at her newest dies, coming out in June. You can find Eileen’s newest Sizzix cake die here.
Another take on using the die: http://eileenhull.blogspot.com/2010/05/sizzix-scoreboard-blog-hop-cake-die.html This was part of a blog hop, so while you’re there, check out the links to other projects using this cake die.
Robi once again is taking advantage of her surroundings while away on vacation in Florida and has made a dirt cake out of sand. It’s super cute and makes an adorable way to present the recipe for making an edible dirt cake to someone as a gift.
My contribution was a fanciful slice of cake made from Styrofoam and covered with all kinds of flower petals and botanicals. I placed these variegated petals on in such way as to mimic pink layers of a cake with a yellow filling.
I also showed this other project I made, this time to look like a mini cake (also made from Styrofoam) using scrapbooking paper, paper diecuts, and some little crocheted flowers that I folded in half to look like scalloped icing decorations.
