Cut a square of card to make the cake. Make sure the cake is not too big otherwise it will poke out of the edges when you close the card. Our cake including candles measured 8cm wide x 10cm high.
Glue on a piece of ribbon and a wiggly topping from white paper.

Ready to trim


Cover the white icing with a glue stick and add glitter.
Make candles by attaching a gold or yellow flame shape to a sparkly pipe cleaner with sticky tape. (We wrapped a small piece of sticky tape all the way around the flame and the pipe cleaner then trimmed off any excess tape).
