DIY Play Birthday Cake with Duct Tape

DIY Play Birthday Cake with and oatmeal box and duct tape

March and April are big birthday months around here (My oldest turned 8 recently and I just might have turned another year older a week or so ago). So what better way to celebrate than with a DIY play birthday cake! And out of our favorite repurposed items such as an oatmeal box and duct tape makes this earth friendly, no-cal cake even better! I’ve actually had this DIY birthday cake in mind for some time, even wanted to use it in my book, but never could get it just right. I had ideas of covering it in fabric, or painting it and then finally resolved to stick with one of my favorite crafting items, the ever bright and endurable duct tape.

Head on over to the Babiekins blog for full instructions on how to make this DIY play cake.

It’s been fun playing around with duct tape again. In fact I’ve got a new batch of things in this medium to share with you soon. Can’t wait!

We had my darling niece over during her spring break to model for this cake. And how cute is this Miszko Maszko star printed skirt she’s wearing? I’m smitten.

      so glad you like! And now to somehow get my hands on one of your real live cakes someday :)! Oh and the ballons at the end, they are actually added in photoshop post production, but I wish they were on the wall!
