How to add slots to any pop up cake design
If you have the Sizzix pop up cake die and want to add a little extra pull to it, you can modify the design by adding slots.
How and where to add slots to pre-cut cake pieces
Pre-fold each cake tier in half, legs together. Unfold the larger tier.
Lay the larger tier on the table. Line up a ruler with the legs and draw two guidelines across the tier.
Lay the smaller tier on top of the larger tier, aligning center folds and legs.
Holding the tiers in place, push the legs of the smaller tier to the left, out of the way.
Pencil on the larger tier where the leg foldine of the smaller tier lies. It should be between the guidelines you drew.
Flip smaller tier over, aligning centers and pushing legs to the right. Mark the other side slot.
The larger tier will look like this. Notice the slots are the same height as the legs. The width between the slots is the width of the smaller tier.
Cut the slots and assemble as described in Building a Better Pop Up Cake: Part 2.
