Cake -n- Candlestick

On my trip to Michigan a few weeks ago, I picked up this "fake cake" at one of my absolute favorite stores Warmbler Farms. Everytime I go to Michigan, I make SURE I stop here.. this store is a virtual paradise for decorators.. this place has every theme from beachy, shabby, roosters, outdoor decor, fairys, floral and sooo much more!  I'm still waiting for them to open an online shop, but, for now, I have to wait for my trips.

This "fake cake" looks soooo real!! So delicious and yummy, I thought it'd be so adorable on my cake plate I picked up at DML a few months ago.. I was right! $22 bucks is all to adorn my cake plate inside my hutch.

I also have a before an after of a fairly large candle holder. I bought it at goodwill for $2.99.

There are some pretty awesome carvings and details in this:

A little white paint later ... and now look!!!

  3. Good morning Ladies! Thanks a bunch :) Isn't the faux cake just the cutest thing? They sold others; like chocolate with raspberries on, I so wanted to get one of those too.. but, the dark brown of chocolate doesn't go with any of my decorating. Nevertheless.. love my cream colored one!

    Thanks for following too, Martha. Going to check out yours!
