light cake

If someone were to offer you a cake that had no fat or calories would you take it?
Well I mentioned yesterday that one of the girls at work is having a birthday this Saturday so I made her a cake. I left out all the fat and calories and decorated it with little pink roses since that's her favorite color. I even made a special box for her cake. She's turning all of 19 but I only have one candle on the cake.

I wonder if she'll share?
If you haven't seen these before, they are made using the battery operated tea lights. You just glue on the paper and decorate. I thought they were the cutest thing. Thanks to Ann Martin from All things paper I learned how to make the folded roses which are the perfect size to fit on these cakes.
So this was project #6 that I was talking about. Tonight I may be taking off from blog reading so that I can work on finishing the other thing I'm making for her. I'll catch up with all of you on the weekend.

That is so adorable! I love the idea of cake without fat and calories. Although that one is way too cute to eat anyway.

Miawa said...

So cute Annie, she will love it. (I do) My birthday is in March.

Lin said...

Oh, I'll bet she'll LOVE it! How sweet of you to make it for her.

Go on, enjoy your computer-free night. I think I might call it an early evening too--I have some sewing to do.

That is the most adorable fat-free cake ever! You come up with awesome ideas! What a cute little box too :)
She'll LOVE it!

Okay, I guess I'll have to go along with the rest of the crowd on this one. For your little cup cake is adorable. However, Duke and I would rather have as much fat and sugar as we can get, and I am quite sure that Wade is with us.

Philippa said...

What a gorgeous little cake - and you're making something else for her as well? Can't wait to see it ...

Meanwhile, thanks so much for recommending the Shadowhouse Creations blog - it's BRILLIANT!! I've learnt such a lot about Photoshop just by reading his tutorials, and have already downloaded some of his wonderful free textures, including the 'writing' one that you had used a few posts ago. I would never have found all this without you - thanks again!!

Russ AKA Grampy said...

Great job as usual Ann. You just keep getting better and better. She is going to love it.

Daisy said...

That is super-duper cute!

Ann said...

Sweet little cake, Ann! I'm glad the rose tute helped... you learned well!!

MadSnapper said...

number 6 project is fantabulous and my favorite. the box is adorable and i love it. a super nice gift and calorie free.

Helen said...

Weren't they fun to make! Love your roses!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Sandee said...

I could do this kind of cake. It's beautiful Ann. You are so talented.

Have a terrific day. My best to the little man of the house. :)

Tammy said...

You give the nicest gifts and cards. I'm sure she is going to love her fat free cake. It is just wonderful.

Ann said...

Nezzy aw thanks. I know I would like getting one :)

LDH I fell in love with them when I first saw them

Anne a birthday coming up huh? maybe I'll have to make bunches of cakes

whimcees thanks and a great day to you also

sheri probably wouldn't taste too good

miawa thanks, maybe you'll get a birthday cake too :)

Lin I think I made someone else mad though by doing it. One of the other girls has been pouting since she heard about it.

beaded tail thanks, any crafting evening is normally enjoyable

beebeebabs your welcome and thanks for your sweet comment

sharkbytes I liked the little roses too

ginny I've been seeing a lot of these on some of the craft blogs and just had to make one

catherine thanks,

grace, that's the fake flame on top.

tanyia aww, you're so nice to me :)

allotments4you that should be coming up in a couple of days

duni well I sort of creatively acquire the ideas from other

fishhawk believe me I like the fat and sugar myself. All that stuff that is bad for you is what makes it taste so darn good

philippa thanks. So glad you checked out Shadowhouse creations. It is brilliant. His work is amazing and I love his textures

Russ thanks, I hope she loves it

daisy thank you

Ann thank you and yes your tutorial did help. You teach well :)

sandra after I finished the box I wished I would have put a little window in it so you could see the cake without opening the box. Maybe the next one.

Helen they were fun, I plan on doing more and already made a trip to the dollar store for the tea lights

Sandee thanks, and duke says to tell you hello

tammy well I try, some people are easier to make stuff for than others :)
