Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

The present invention relates generally to gift containers and more specifically it relates to the use of designer gift cakes instead of traditional gift containers. My gift cake designs can be decorated as wedding cakes, shower cakes, graduation cakes, birthday cakes, and all holiday cakes as well as any celebrated event that a cake may be used. They can be used as gift containers, centerpieces or gift card containers.

2. Description of the Prior Art

It can be appreciated that traditional gift containers and or wrap has been in use for years. Typical gift wrapping is comprised of gift paper, gift boxes, bows and ribbons and or gift bags.

The main problem with conventional gift wrapping is gift wrap is expensive. Another problem with conventional gift wrap is they never seem to fit the shape of the packages. Another problem with conventional gift wrap is that when opened then you have to dispose of the paper and bows and ribbons.

While these devices may be suitable for the particular purpose to which they address, they are not as suitable for gift giving, displays or gift card containers as my gift cake designs. Gift cake designs can be decorated as wedding cakes, shower cakes, graduation cakes, birthday cakes, holiday cakes or centerpeices with gifts placed inside. The main problem with conventional gift containers or wrap is that to open packages wrapped with gift paper the paper is ususally torn off the package creating a mess. Though gift bags are nice they are not as decorative as my gift cake designs. Gift cake designs can be opened with ease and can be used over and over again, for centerpieces, gift containers, or gift card containers.

In these respects, the gift cakes designs according to the present invention substantially departs from the conventional concepts and designs of the prior art, and in so doing provides an apparatus primarily developed for the purpose of gift giving, gift card placement or decorating for events. Gift Cake Designs can be decorated and given with gifts inside or used for centerpieces or gift card containers.

In view of the foregoing disadvantages inherent in the known types of gift containers or gift wrap now present in the prior art, the present invention provides a new concept for gift giving, centerpieceing or containing gift cards.

The general purpose of the present invention, which will be described subsequently in greater detail, is to provide a new way to give gifts that are unsusual and unique which deviate from the traditional way of gift wrapping and feature a new novel way to give gifts, use centerpieces, or use as gift card containers which is not anticipated, rendered obvious, suggested, or even implied by any of the prior art of gift wrapping or gift boxes and bags.

To attain this, the present invention generally comprises containers that include pails, cans, pots, baskets, paper of various sizes and shapes including round, square, and oblong, decorated with flowers, real and artificial, beads, lace, ribbons, glue, paints, metals, tins, woods, wickers, plastics, cloth, lace, ribbons, and any and all craft materials and any and all gifts and gift accessories for placement inside cake containers.
