Sassy Cake Tutorial Step 1 | Stack Hat Boxes

Select two hat boxes the size and height that you want your cake to be.  My sizes are 10″ and 6″  round hat boxes.   Select the boxes that look proportional to suit your look.  The bottom hat box was covered with pink wrapping paper and punch out hot pink flowers were hot glued to the paper box.

Punch-out 200 + flowers.  This will cover the bottom cake.

After making the flowers,  fold up each petal to form a cup.  Set aside until ready to hot glue to base.

Meanwhile,  wrap the base hat box with hot pink gift wrapping paper.  I used double sided tape to tape the paper in place and not hot glue.  The first wrap was wonky, so I wrapped it again and this time the box had a smooth finish and looked like a frosted hot pink cake.  It was so exciting to see the smooth wrapped cake.  I realize I didn’t have to cover it twice because I was adding the cut out flowers, but I felt better about the overall look of the artwork.

Sassy Cake Tutorial Step 3|Wrapped Box

Notice how smooth the hot pink paper is on the base hat box.   Begin at the bottom or base of the hat box to hot glue each individual flower with no space between flowers.  On the second row try to place the flower cup off-center of the bottom flowers.  I had 20-25 flowers per row, and about 10 rows of flowers.   In the center of every other flower I stuck an adhesive backed hot pink rhinestone in the center.  These kept falling off, so you might want to hot glue them in place. Just an FYI.

Details make a difference.  next, I wrapped the smaller hat box in white stripped wedding wrapping paper.  Wrapped this box twice for a smooth finish.

Two black satin ribbon bands on the base of cake  were equally spaced using double sided tape to adhere. The black ribbon bands added to the sassy look.

This piece of wrapping paper makes the sassy bow on top of the cake.  Black satin ribbon lengths were taped to the wrapping paper.  (used double faced tape) .  The paper was folded and pleated to create the bow.   An old pearl earring with the back removed was used as the center of the bow.

I attached the bow with hot glue and to the left side of the top tiered cake.
