The "cake" decorations are floral punch roses and punched accent flowers with textured pearl centers. I used the pinks and pearl papers in the January Custom Quilling kit to make these. To make the roses I used the medium pear punch and punched about twenty or so per flower. Then I inked the edges of each pear and snipped a bit from the stem edge. The pears were then shaped and mounted onto a green 6 pointed snowflake base.
I used about 1/3 of a styrofoam ball covered in pink tissue paper under the roses on top to give the cake embellishments some height. The rose leaves were inked and added along with the punched icing and pearl flowers. Quilled hearts, made from the strips in the kit, were added and were made from two teardrop shapes glued together with a crimped darker strip around it. Bits of the pre-pleated ribbon were added in among the roses like real icing would be. A multi loop bow was added at the back of the flowers on top and has accent flowers and a quilled heart nestled among it.
The roses, buds, flowers and quilled hearts cascade down the front and as an accent on the back. The top box is glued to the top of the bottom box so you can use each box for trinkets or gift giving.
