Seeing as we are having a really yummy cake at our wedding we want others to enjoy it as well. I made a heap of cake boxes ages ago so our guests can take a bit of cake home with them in a box instead of the typical cake bag which gets squashed so easily. At least if the box gets squashed then it will sort of protect the cake a wee bit.

I found a thick chunky font on publisher to make it stand out more than the usual fonts like georgia, sercoe print or courier would, so guests would see it a bit more. My frames came from the reject shop and were $3 each which was a definite save as I wanted the frames to be less than $5. The frame is 5 x 7 in height and is called Holly. It comes in black and brown but I decided to go with the black as it fits in better with our reception theme.

I worked out the right size that the sign needed to be with a few mock ups in the progress of making them. Finally got it and inserted it into the frame and I had ticked another DIY item off my list. Simple but effective and gets the message across. And once you've worked out your borders, it only takes an hour or so to put it together.
