This post will make you hungry.  You’ve been warned.  Remember earlier in the week when I shared this inspiration?  I’m calling them 3D postcards, but it’s more like mailable faux food.  I got crafty this week and whipped up these mailable chocolate cake slices.  Yes, I said chocolate cake slices!  Keep scrolling and feast your eyes.

These little buggers are perfect to mail for birthdays, but could certainly be used for any occasion.  I only made 4 cake slices to start, but I think I’m going to stock pile these and mail out as often as possible.  🙂
