Extra Cake Layers

If you're a chocolate fan like me you're going to like this . . . I'm going to show you how to add an extra layer to this cake.  Its literally a "Piece of Cake". Look close at the background - the stamp has only 2 layers.  My cake as 3 layers. Yum!

The trick to getting the 3rd layer is to stamp the cake normally so you get your top 2 layers. Then put a post-it over what you just stamped and stamp again repositioning the stamp to add the extra layer.  A picture is worth a 1000 words, see . . . piece of cake, right?

Is that yummy icing making you drool?  Use your Fine Tip Glue pen after coloring it to get the shine.

The background is easy to make. The stamp set comes with 4 different cake images. Mount them all on a single block and stamp 4 at a time. Quick and easy!

The Piece of Cake stamp set has a coordinating punch, with a wonderful cake stand. You can see it used as intended on these cards.  But for this project I just wanted a cake plate instead of a stand.
