Age...It's Only a Number!

Hello to you!
It's a special day today over at Top Tip Tuesday and it's all about Numbers!

So what could be more fun than a sarcastic ol' biddy on top of  a birthday cake making wisecracks about your age? To ease the pain, there's also a removable base to the cake that contains 20 little reasons to celebrate!
Bugaboo, with the ever fabulous images, so kindly let me use Stella Birthday- 29 Again.  I'm afraid she might be a tad too old to be jumping out of cakes anymore, but she's perfect for a topper. 
 The beautiful white roses are also from another sponsor Shape EZ, called Tipped Scallop Flower. 
The birthday cake itself is a Silhouette file and the since we share TIPS at Top Tip Tuesday, my tip for the day is how to make fun 3D icing. By mixing Snow-Tex with acrylic paint, I was able to make the blue icing seen here.

So stop on by and show us your Numbers and while you're there, you'll love seeing the creative endeavors of my teammates!  
Speaking of numbers, time to go balance the ol' checkbook....ICK!

Thanks so much for your visit and happy crafting to you.

Wow, Lisa, how cool is that frosting??? Paired with the roses!??
I love this little box! And, of course, a nice "salty" toppper to cut the sweetness of it all!
Perfection, my dear.

You are my hero! This is the most fantabulous cake ever and how fun is the topper!! Hey, if you can't reduce, and are too worn out to reuse, then all that's left is to recycle!

Are you ever 'too old' to jump out of a cake???? No, really, I need to know! :)

Lisa, I think I missed this one! Oh may!!! Bugaboo image is fantastic on the top of the cake. The tipped top white roses are awesome, I love how you arranged them, did you make them? They turned out stunning. Have never seen snow tex so I will have to check it out, really like the way it looks. Super 3D cake..
