Aces of Cakes

Have you ever watched the television show, Ace of Cakes on the Food Network? The cakes Chef Duff and his crew build are freakin' amazing. But, wait – you've got to see what these paper cake makers have put together with our pop-up cake die.


Ilina Crouse made this adorable card for her mother. To make that bouquet, she used the Flower Trio punch and Small Leaves Sizzlet.

The outside of Ilina's mother's day card is gorgeous. You can see the front of the card and more pictures of the inside here

Janet Wakeland made this precious baby boy cake. Oh, but she also made a delicious cake with a cup-cake on the top tier, and a mother's day photo pop-up card, here.  


Heather Summers really takes the cake (sorry, pun intended) with these four amazing cakes.


Isn't that Daisy stunning? Heather made it with the Daisy Die. Heather's got some great ideas for keeping these rather thick cards closed and more beautiful pictures of this card, here.


Heather's Mom put together this card in a challenge Heather gave her. Wow, what a talented Mom!


Heather's Mom has an incredible skill mixing stamp sets. She used the stamp sets Under the Stars, Hit the Road, Season of Friendship, and Loads of Love for the presents on top of the truck! Check out the front of the card and more details, here

Heather made this precious Noah's Ark cake for a little baby boy.  Heather used the Wild About You set for the critters. You can find the adorable details and a cake made into a bee hive here.


Still not done, Heather also made this amazing pirate cake and gives you all the details, here.


Here's a few more cakes just for giggles and grins:

Oh yeah, and you can even make a birthday cake . . .


Heather Summers gives great tips for making this cake and even a video to help you make it, here.

Be sure and visit these folks and tell them Linda said hey -thanks for all their calorie-free inspiration. 

As always, you can purchase any of the items to make these delicious cakes, including the "Three Tier Cake Pop-up Bigz Xl Die" (116760)  here.
