CAS Bday Cake Card

After spending most of the morn trying to reach Cricut because my Cricut Explore Air stopped cutting after I upgraded a plugin. First time I was on hold for quite awhile to then get disconnected. Then I was on hold for much longer and I hung up. I finally went online and read some things and found out that I had to make the plugin 'always activate' or the bluetooth would time out. I was able to cut using the USB but wanted to find out why the bluetooth/wireless part was not working. Has anyone else had this problem?

Made this Clean & Simple CAS Birthday Cake card first time using Hero Arts stamps.

Used MISTI tool to line up all the stamps.Used Memento Rich Cocoa ink to stamp the cake pieces and also color the cake for chocolate frosting look.

Used Wink of Stella gold & clear for sparkle on the candle flame. Added twine.
