My First Paper Cake!

It's Administration Appreciation Day tomorrow at my daughter's high school and we are sending in "thank yous" to the headmaster, 2nd headmaster, secretary, etc....  I made the paper cake to match their school colors. I filled each "slice" with wrapped candies.

The top has a paper rosette topped with two scalloped circles and then stamped it with "thank you very much".  I put terrifically tacky tape on the back of the rosette to hold it in place on the cake.

I am lucky enough to have a commercial copy of the school's logo because I'm the yearbook advisor, so I printed them, punched them out with my circle punch and put one on the end of each slice.  The trouble was finding a large enough "plate" for the "cake".  I ended up using the top of a hat box.  Finally, I tied red ribbon around all the slices to hold them in place.
