HI GUYS! I'm so excited to share this tutorial because it's the first tealight cake design of 2015.

Materials

Coloured papers (4 shades)
Cake template
LED tealight candle
Scissors
Ruler
Glue gun
Jewel stickers
Paper Trimmer (optional)


Paper Prep

Begin with an 8.5x11" of the coloured paper. Cut in half lengthwise to give 2, 4.25x11".  Then cut it along the 11" side into 0.5" strips, this gives you strips that are 0.5x4.25".  You will need 14-16 strips.





Set aside your lightest shade of paper.

With the 3 darker shades, begin with an 8.5x11" of the coloured paper. Cut in half lengthwise to give 2, 4.25x11". Then cut it along the 11" side into 0.5" strips, this gives you strips that are 0.5x4.25".

You will need 14-16 strips




Take your strip and fold the corner into an acute triangle. Fold the triangle in on itself along the inside edge. Fold the working end back on itself. Then fold the triangle in half, this acts like a spindle. Begin rolling the the spindle into the working end until you reach the end of the fold. Fold the working end back on itself, like before. Continue rolling and folding the working end until you reach the end of the strip. Add some glue and secure into place. Snip off the excess paper at the bottom of the rose.









Attach the face and side pieces to your tealight candle. Place glue on the back of the rose and glue it onto the cake starting from the bottom with the darkest shade. Add some bling stickers to the top of the candle.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
