Back to school Teacher's gift #2!!

Hi all! Hope you all are having a great day. School starts on August 30 here. I wanted to make another back to school gift for my DD Teacher and to share with some of her Teacher friends. I made a back to school Teacher's cake. I seen alot of these made for partys and I wanted to give one a try.
To make this cake I used the Tags,Bags,Boxes and More Cartridge. I cut 10 blackout boxes on page #126. I used 8 1/2 by 11 inches cardstock and fit to page button to cut cake box out. To hold all the cake boxes I cut a 11 inch circle on 12 by 12 inch yellow cardstock and 12 by 12 chipboard. Circle is cut from Plantin SchoolBook Cartridge on page #72.I made all the pinwheels for the cake boxes. I cut 4 by 4 inch squares to make pinwheels and added a gold brad in center . The next time I make this cake. Im going to make the pinwheels 3 by 3 inch. I think 4inch squares are too big. I put candy in all the cake boxes. I wrap the whole cake in clear wrap and tied a yellow ribbon at top. Do you like my cake or what? I love it and I hope the Teachers love it too! Here is a close up of the pinwheel I made for the cake boxes. I embossed the pinwheels with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.
You all know me by now. I love to give gifts to others. Have a great night all

Cartridge used:
Tags, Bags, Boxes and More (Cake box).
Plantin SchoolBook (circle).
