Hello there ...

With Valentines Day around the corner I decided to make some themed cakes.  With the help of the Big Shot Plus Starter Kit I made matching cake toppers too!

Those that know me know I am no baker so I have cheated a little here and used a cake mix!

To create the cakes I baked them as normal and then used a circle cutter to cut mini cakes. The inside has been filled with buttercream made pink with food colouring.

I added buttercream to the top of the cakes and sprinkled on some hearts.

Now came the bit that I am familiar with!

I used the thinlit scalloped heart from the Bigshot Plus Starter Kit to cut the hearts from white cardstock.  I then cut the pink hearts from the Bigz Die included in the kit and finally cut the red one's from the Bigz die too.

I think these really finish off the cakes.  It is amazing how many different ways I use my Big Shot Plus.  I find I use it to decorate all manner of things I make even if they are not paper crafts.  It is great for all my handmade projects from home decor to baking!

I would love to see what you have been making for Valentine's Day!

Until next time
