Inedible Wedding Cakes: Inspired Wedding Shower Gift Wrapping

When I bought the shower gifts for my sister-in-law to be’s shower, I couldn’t help but notice that the boxes looked like tiers of a wedding cake. And so using some lovely wrapping paper and wide ribbon ( double stick tape!), the cake came to life. For the topper, I bought a large styrofoam ball and cut it in half, along with fake flowers and pearl beads. I literally poked the stems of the flowers in and glued the pearls to the center. Using tape, I affixed it to the top of the cake and it was done. I also loved that the topper could be a nice foundation for the rehearsal bouquet.

You may remember this post from my former baking blog. It is a towel cake made of two bath towels, two hand towels and two washcloths. Again, the topper was an excellent part of the rehearsal bouquet!

And as you can probably tell, I had a baking extravanganza for this wedding shower. Here's a sneak peak at what's coming in the next two posts: wedding favor cookies and cupcakes.
