[Tutorial + Template] Tealight Cake

You've seen this tutorial before from me but this is the new and improved version!  This 2 tiered tealight cake sits at 2.5" in height and diameter and is completely made from paper (aside from the battery operated tealight).  This is the same template I use for my tuxedo tealight cake which you can watch here.  This template is accompanied by 2 other tutorials: the Explosion box and Cake mount.
