Origamic Architecture Wedding Cake

origamic architecture cake
This is the consolation card I made for my friend who got the non pop up card for her wedding.

Obviously I cave to peer pressure.


It's a straight-forward origamic architecture design.

This video shows how to fold each tier. It's a house pop up , but the roof is folded exactly the same way as a cake tier. (Start watching at 2:40).


The flowers are my old favorites from the seven flower pop up.

Download your choice--the file set includes the cake with wavy uprights and the one with straight uprights. I like the wavy one better because it looks more like icing.

Be sure to check out the gorgeous straight-sided ones made by Chris.
Isn't it fabulous in chocolate?

Here's one by Cathy of Scraps of Life.



Cut on black lines, score and fold on red lines.

The scallops are separate overlays cut out and glued to the tops of the layers. The inspiration for these came from Monica's laced frame #31.
Scalloped overlays are included in the file set.

There is a sizing rectangle on the scallops file drawn to match the outline rectangle of the cake file. I set mine to 9" tall and constrained the width to height ratio. If you change the size, make sure you change both files.

The front is a custom portrait by my daughter, who draws caricatures at a theme park).
