It was recently my gran's 80th birthday. My sister, a skilled baker, wanted to make her a special cake for her party. I just made a set of stencils for the royal icing on the laser cutter, she did all the icing and decorating. Credit where credit is due. Very pretty, and it certainly made my gran happy so that's all that counts. I had also previously made some invites for the event with butterflies on them so stuck to that theme.
I first tried using polypropylene and it wasn't behaving the way I wanted it to so I ended up just making them in card. There was a long thin surround and a round one for the top, obviously one use only so did a few for practice runs.
