Need a clever party centerpiece or fun party idea?

Surprise your guests by turning nesting boxes into a festive cake perfect for any celebration. Jennifer Snyder has a short video showing just how easy this is. Best of all, you can hide goodies and gifts inside the boxes for an added surprise.

This adorable cake has three different sized boxes: the bottom box is 6"x3", middle box is 6"x2.5" and the darling top box is 4"x2". You can leave the boxes loose so they can be unstacked and moved about, OR you can adhere them together to keep as a complete set.

There are so many ways to customize this cake for birthdays, anniversaries, teacher appreciation gifts, showers, office gifts, and much more.

Here's a fun party idea

Looking for a fun activity for a child's birthday party? How about having a cake themed party!

Each child can make their own birthday/ celebration cake. Precut a variety of bright papers that fit each box layer and let the kids select their own papers.

Toss a bunch of miscellaneous embellishments on a table - flowers, lace, trim, stickers, punched decorations, string, buttons, alphabet letters. The kids can then choose their own decorations.

As a parting favor, the kids can fill their boxes with cookies, candy, or other little party favors. Now that sounds like a FUN event.
