Make a Cake from the Stampin' Up Retirement list

I've been going through all my stamp sets and giving the retiring ones a little love. Today it's the turn of Make a Cake, a cute little set that I haven't used nearly enough! Come and see what I've made with it:

There are seven stamps in this set and you can mix and match them to make a whole variety of gorgeous cakes. Mine is a three-layer, melt-in-the-mouth lemon chiffon cake with a delicious tangy frosting... oh dear, I'd better stop right there!

I've arranged my cake on a platter, decorated it with flags and placed it in the spotlight created by a split panel front with an oval aperture. I backed the panel with Midnight Muse card stock and added So Saffron candy dots for a fun touch.

I'll be linking this card up with Addicted to Stamps and More where there's a Make Your Mark challenge.

Some of the items in the annual catalogue are retiring to make way for new products. Don't miss out on your favourites! Some of these items have been discounted too - check them here.

When we were walking past a bakery the other day my youngest son became quite pensive. "Do you ever feel the overwhelming temptation to go in and buy a custard cake just so that you can push it in someone's face?" he asked. Er, no, I don't actually. And oh my goodness, just think of the lucky escape I've had all these years of passing bakeries with him!

See you tomorrow,


  1. I like the idea of the split spotlight Vicky. Am I correct in seeing that one side is textured and the other plain? Looks terrific - I may just borrow that idea if I may? (BTW the 'lemon chiffon cake' sounds delicious)

  2. Well I've never had the custard cake compulsion . . . but I might just have from now on! THANKS! (not)

    Love your pretty cake card. xxx
