Giveaway! Paper Cake Slices, got food allergies??!!

** CLOSED**


Giveaway Time!

My friend Suzanne E. has an amazing story, her three children have severe food allergies. It took Suzanne and her dedication to her children, to get the Doctors to correctly diagnose her children's allergies and to get them some help. Imagine making THREE different meals at each meal time, one specifically for each child.
Suzanne had a great idea one day when she was looking at a wedding book. Even if her kids couldn't have birthday cake, they were sill going to have "cake"! So she created paper cakes. 
"Paper Cake slices that double as a box are perfect for Birthdays, Weddings, Favors, and Crafts especially for those with food allergies. They can be filled with treasures and handed out as favors at special events as well as become an exciting craft. They can be ordered Pre-made or as a "Kit" you assemble yourself!"

Suzanne gave me a "cake" for my girls for Valentines Day. I saved mine and used it this weekend at my daughters baptism. I filled all the little boxes with stickers, candy, and lip gloss for the girls. They LOVED it!


This picture is after I realized I had not taken a picture and made all the girls put their boxes back! I had them all nicely displayed on a cake plate with ribbon around the entire thing!


The cutest thing is that insides are decorated like real slices of cake!

Suzanne has just started an etsy site HERE where she is selling her cakes either pre-made, or kits you can do yourself! She also designed her own templates for the cake slices, very smart girl!

For the Giveaway, Suzanne is giving one lucky a winner a "cake" of their own, just like mine above.
12 decorated slices and "smooches" to go with!

To enter:
Leave a comment here telling us what your favorite item is and if your children have any food allergies (just because I am curious!) and the kids will pick a winner next Sunday night!

Those are nice, I have a similar template, that I keep wanting to try around christmas time. It also reminds me that I need to start working on my daughters party favors. I love templates, I've got over 1,000 of them, and I love paper crafts! I'll have to post my favors on my blog. I'll skip this contest, since I already have a template. Her cake slices are really beautiful though!!

I am SO NOT the artsy craftsy type so I would LOVE to have this. My little girl is turning two in April and this would be so cute at her party. I love the smooches and the tea party kit. I am so glad there are people out there with this kind of skill! Thanks!

So cute! I just love the single layer cake. I love how each slice is decorated. My little girl is allergic to eggs so we don't get to eat many cakes at our house. I would love to get one for her 3rd birthday that is coming up in May.

My six year old daughter is allergic to soy, whenever she goes to birthday parties, she never gets to eat any of the treats or goodies, she is always so sad... but what a cute idea...I could send her with her own piece of "cake"! I looked through all the cakes, and they are so cute with good prices too, but I think my favorite is the one you displayed with the many different "flavors" in one cake of chocolate, white, and cream. Very adorable and so much fun! Ooooh, I hope I win...

So cute...I've seen these before and have wanted to try them out...I love the 3 layer cake...so cute. My girls both have just been diagnosed with Type 1 diabeties so this would be a great alternative to a sweet cake....fill it with cute charms, lip gloss, hair accessories -- so cute.

Shannon said...

The three layer cake is soo cute! My cousin is getting married and this would be great for favors. What happens if she has more people than the cake has boxes? Do you do more than one cake or can the cakes have bigger layers? Anyway, I like the pieces with the flowers on top...would be cute for a wedding!

My DD does not have allergies that we are aware of, but my friends DD has a reaction to corn starch of all things! That's in EVERYTHING. She can do little bits now that she's a toddler, but that was hard for that momma!

I love the tea party. I have a seven year old that would love this for her birthday, and since we don't drink tea this would be perfect. So far we have lucked out and don't have any allergies

Ramsey said...

Those cakes are adorable!! So far Beck has no allergies :) knock on wood!

Those smooches are so cute and perfect for little toddler hands at a party. My kids have no allergies that I know of.

The single layer cake is adorable. My youngest daughter is allergic to soy & dogs, and my oldest daughter just outgrew her allergies (milk and eggs and nuts) at age 3 (thank goodness). But my 6 year old nephew is anaphalactally allergic to all tree nuts, so I'd be passing this on to him. He never gets to enjoy cake and this would be great filled with Matchbox cars, rubber bugs and other boy things. Great giveaway!

The cake is so cute! Reagan's birthday is coming and and these would make awesome party favors! My kids don't have any allergies but I'm allergic to shellfish, no fun.

I think the smoochies are super cute.

My son has a peanut allergy. Some people just don't get it. We were visiting husband's brother and sister-in-law and she made her daughter a peanut butter sandwich right in front of me. She knows we have a severe peanut allergy. I had to leave the room, I was so mad. Allergy are serious and should be treated as such. Sorry I just had to vent.

I like the Paper Tea Party Kit. Thankfully, we do not have any food allergies (that I know of).

Nicole said...

I have a three year old. No food allergies here yet! LOVE the medium layer cake b/c it is an 8 inch round just like a regular cake:) So cute for a little girl tea party.

Angela said...

Wow...what an adorable idea that also helps with decorations at a little girl's party. I like the large layer cake.

My children do not have allergies, but my daughter has epilepsy. We're working on adjusting her diet.

Birdie said...

I think your cakes are all awesome. I looked at some for my twins 1st birthday in Dec. They were a little out of my budget. I think you are wonderful for blessing someone with this giveaway. May you receive many blessings in return. I am allergic to wheat and eggs with lactose intolerance thrown in for fun. LOL. My oldest daughter and son are allergic to eggs also. My twin girls don't have any allergy's as of yet. I do have a niece who is allergic to nuts though.

This is a great idea! My children don't have food allergies, but I've had difficulty doing a real cake at parties. This would be an excellent alternative.

I LOVE the three tiered paper cake slices cake, but they're all wonderful.

I like the tea party kit. That would be a huge hit at my house with my four girls. I kids don't have allergies but my littlest one gets gas if she eats too much chocolate and is up all night and my second tells everyone she is allergic to peanut butter because she doesn't like it. Ahhh, the joys of motherhood!
