Wood Slice Christmas Cake

Making this wood slice Christmas cake was such a fun and easy project.......

My wood cake slices remind me of chocolate or gingerbread ......the fluffy icing is made with round pieces of crochet and pillow stuffing.    

The top of the cake is decorated with crochet  icing and snow fluff......a metal house.......and a mama and baby deer.     I have a bottle brush tree that you will notice later in the post that I traded out for a different one.    Let me know which tree you like the best!

I have a baby deer on the back side of the top layer of the cake.

I used  white faux fur as my table runner.

The table is set for a small dinner party......

I went all paper for the place settings...............

The dinner plate,   salad plate,  and deer napkin are all paper.    

I used crystal glasses to dress up my tablescape......

The addition of cloth napkins and gold flatware also give the table an elegant look.....despite the fact that I am using paper plates for an easy clean up.

You can see the pile of presents in front of the china cabinet that H and I finally got wrapped this morning.    H was sweet enough to help with with the wrapping,   but I am on my own to put the bows on!
