This week at Dutch Dare is Fancy Fold
So I chose to do another explosion box.
The possibilities of fancy folds, are endless.
Do join us in the fun this week!
I do love these boxes!
They make the perfect gift for special occasions.
This was for a couple who were celebrating their
50th wedding anniversary. (Hence all the gold)
50 years definitely deserves something special!
I was hoping to have a tutorial ready for you this time on how I
do the cake. I ran out of time. I have not forgotten. I will
surprise you one day.
Meanwhile these are the measurements I used
The dimensions I used for the cake layers are as follows:
Bottom layer- 5 1/2" Square- scored at 1" on all 4 sides
Middle layer- 4 1/2" Square- scored at 1" on all 4 sides
Top layer- 3 1/2" Square- scored at 1" on all 4 sides
