One thing I will always do for my kids for their birthday is make them a very special cake. They can choose whatever they would like and that’s what they will get. Even if I eventually stop throwing big parties, and stop the decorations, they will always get a fun cake. And this year was no exception! To go with the knights and dragons theme, of course we needed a Medieval Fortress cake! And of course I digi scrapped it…wait….??? digi scrappin a cake? YEP! Here you see my brave knight protecting the castle, scroll down to see up close photos so you can see what digi scrapping I did on the cake!

The windows, door, tower wrap around, blue cones and flags are all photos! I measured everything out that I needed and created it digitally, had it printed out at Sams, cut it out and stuck it to the cake!

I couldn’t have made it look that great if I would have had to cover the towers in fondant and shape all those windows out of that stuff! I could barely cover the cake with that impossible to work with stuff! So yes it took some time to do all those little pieces, but not nearly as much time as it WOULD have taken! So I am thankful for digi scrapping cause it saved me boat loads of time on this cake!!!
