Piece of Cake!

Just as soon as I headed over to
I knew that I could have some fun
planning my Christmas table.
Oh yes, I can hear some of you say, 'it's a bit early',
but do you know there are only
114 days 'til Christmas!!!

The challenge this week is to make a table setting.
Well, every table needs a centrepiece,
so I decided to make this 'cake'.

Each little cake slice easily opens up,
and I was thinking of filling them with
sugared almonds.

The template for this cake slice came from
Sorry, I can't add the link, because their site is down right now,
but it should be up again soon and then you can search their site for it.

I used K & Co Peppermint Twist paper.
It's nice to use a double sided paper like this,
so that you can see a pattern when the slices are opened.
Then I punched some snowflakes,
covered them with diamond dust
and stuck one on the top of each slice.
A nice piece of ribbon holds all the slices together.

Don't forget to head over to Winter Wonderland
and check out the gorgeous projects
from the DT
