Ballerina Tealight Cake Tutorial



HI GUYS! I'm so excited to share this tutorial because it's the first tealight cake design of 2015.  I featured 2 of my new designs and will be making a tutorial for the Spectre cake soon enough.  But let's jump into it.

Materials

Coloured papers (4 shades)
Cake template
LED tealight candle
Scissors
Ruler
Glue gun
Jewel stickers
Paper Trimmer (optional)

Paper Prep

Begin with an 8.5x11" of the coloured paper. Cut in half lengthwise to give 2, 4.25x11".  Then cut it along the 11" side into 0.5" strips, this gives you strips that are 0.5x4.25".  You will need 14-16 strips.

Roses

Take your strip and fold the corner into an acute triangle.  Fold the triangle in on itself along the inside edge.  Fold the working end back on itself.

 Then fold the triangle in half, this acts like a spindle.

 Begin rolling the the spindle into the working end until you reach the end of the fold.


Fold the working end back on itself, like before.


Continue rolling and folding the working end until you reach the end of the strip.  Add some glue and secure into place.

Assembly

Attach the face and side pieces to your tealight candle.

Place glue on the back of the rose and glue it onto the cake starting from the bottom with the darkest shade.

Add some bling stickers to the top of the candle.




Happy Crafting!
