Surely you guys don't come here for sanity, right?! By now I am pretty sure we all know that I swing from the crazy tree (when it comes to projects anyway). Yesterday I had a few short quiet moments to myself while the little man napped...I say a few moments because letting myself have anything longer could be dangerous. Yesterday it didn't take long before an dangerous oddball idea popped into my brain. Downright out there & on a one way bus to Looney Town. I decided to glam up some cake decor. No worries this isn't a post about pastry bags and fondant flowers...it's more about some simple candles that I couldn't leave alone...poor things. I actually took out my gold can of spray paint (*oh no she didn't*) & tagged them. Let's be honest there has yet to be something sprayed gold that I haven't liked...evidently candles with a hint of gold were no exception.
Before Olly's nap:
yep, I sprayed parts of them..weird huh? I was trying to think outside of the box and make a quick & simple jazz my cake up "go-to". You know, for the next time I just needed to get my hands on some gold spray painted candles. It also gave me a great excuse to buy a cake from our little town bakery & use it for blog picture (later introducing it to Mr. Fork & Mrs. I'mgonnaeatyou).
awww, she's getting down with her lemony self. I guess the moral to this story folks is that it's okay to do something weird (every once in a while & in the privacy of your own home haha) & let those crazy creative juices flow. Even if it is so you can get a slice of cake after using it for some photos. I'm comfortable with being strange & just leave it to me to supply you with crazy DIY. Until tomorrow folks.....who knows what will happen next, it's just one of those weeks.
*No candles were hurt in the making of this post. A little drippy maybe, but nothing too severe.
