Florentine Bow Happy Birthday (Wedding Cake)

I always like to try to think of ways to use dies other than the reason they were created.  When i saw the three layers it struck me that it could be made into a cake and I cam up with the following design. Check out next weeks post as i make a flower using the same die!
