TAKE THE CAKE
Send guests home with slice-shaped boxes that look good enough to eat. Use simple supplies like paint, ribbons, pipe cleaners, hot glue, and faux fruit and flowers to make the cake boxes resemble the real thing. (The “whipped cream” on our cherry slice is piped collage clay, and the “icing” on the strawberry one is colored hot glue.) Fill them with themed candy, or have your caterer add cake slices.
