Have you ever had a money cake? My grandma used to make them for us when we were kids – she’d wrap coins in wax paper and hide them in the icing layer of our birthday cakes. When you ate your slice, you would always hope for lots of coins! This Saint Patrick’s Day, I thought it would be fun to use chocolate coins instead and hide them under shamrock toppers on these miniature cakes. So simple, but what a fun surprise!

A long time ago, I pinned this beautiful cake I’d come across by Sarah at Signe Sugar. I loved it so much, it inspired me to create this paper banner version. I had no idea how to go about it, so I just jumped into cutting, bending and gluing. Once I got the hang of it, it came together pretty quickly. And, if you mess up, it’s just paper – - so just cut another piece and keep moving forward!
