Turn the birthday cake into a present
Usually you use wrapping paper to wrap a present for your friend’s birthday. This time you’ll use it to wrap the birthday cake itself, including a cute sheer ribbon for the finishing touch.

Tip: If you don’t want to draw the birthday cake directly on the card (step 1), you could use grid paper and 2 paper clips to attach it to the card.
