  1. Flip your card stock over and lay the can on its side. Measure the width of the can on the paper and make a mark. Use a second piece of construction paper to line up with the mark and draw a straight line down the cardstock. 
  2. Cut along the line.
  3. Roll the card stock around the tin can and attach using your washable glue.
  4. Trace the bottom of the can onto a yellow sheet of paper. Cut out.
  5. Attach the yellow circle to the top of the can using your washable glue.
  6. Cut out two purple strips with one side wavy and glue around the top and bottom of the can using your washable glue. This is the cake frosting. 
  7. Cut your pipe cleaners to size of a candle and twist together almost all the way, leaving some un-twisted to glue to the top of your can.
  8. Cut out two small yellow flames and glue to the top of the candle (back to back).
  9. Draw spirals on your pink, purple and orange sheets of construction paper.
  10. Cut out the spirals and roll up into a rose shape - glue the end so it stays put. 
  11. Attach the roses to the top of your tin can surrounding your candle.
  12. Decorate your purple strips at the top and bottom of your can with glitter glue.
  13. Let the glue dry before playing with the cake!
