Tags, Bags, Boxes & More....50 Boxes, 100 Cookies, 1 Chocolate Project

Rachel, my 8th grader, had to do a Chocolate Project (think science fair).  So that meant that Daddy and I got to "help."  Daddy designed the box after Rachel gave him the idea of what she wanted.  Then we printed and cut them on the Expression using Tags, Bags, Boxes & More.  It was a loooonnnggg Sunday.
Happy Scrapping

My first attempts at using the Cricut Cake to decorate a real cake

My baby turned 14 on Mother's Day.  She is a SpongeBob fan and so we made a simple two layer (yes, from a box, yes with store bought frosting, who are we kidding here) chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting tinted blue.  We  cut SpongeBob for the top and Patrick and the  pineapple for the sides.  We also cut Sandy, but broke her trying to move her and I was too tired by then to roll and cut another one.  We also cut a few pieces of seaweed for the sides.
All in all, for a first attempt I think it turned out ok.

Taylor, my 15 yr old, decided she needed a cake too, so she used the Hanna Montana cartridge to cut a guitar, then she decided instead of doing the second layer, she'd just paint the strings on with black food coloring.  We cut her nickname out of one of the cake cartridges, sorry I don't remember which one. 
I had a demo on Mother's Day at Michael's so here is a shot of the demo cake that I did.

Happy Scrapping!

My First Demo at Michaels

I received my demo kit (above) so, of course, I had to open it all up and lay it all out on the kitchen table. 

These are from my first demo at Michaels on Sunday. 
 It went well and I can't wait for next Sunday to do it all again.

Happy Scrapping and Decorating those cakes!
