Lil’ Luau Cakes

Standard

So, this post is interesting because we are taking a cake that is already fantastic and making it even more awesome.
The Luau Cake over at Bob Chinn’s Crab House is hands down one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. Light, airy and just the right amount of sweet.
After seeing a cute Pinterest pic of miniature luau cakes, we knew right away we had to give it a try!
We went and bought a whole Luau Cake from Bob Chinn’s and quickly got to work. The idea behind using a whole cake was so that we could make multiple mini cakes… Sharing, optional.

Trick your Tiki!

Standard

As if our Tiki wasn’t awesome enough… we have found a way to make it even cooler!!

Today, we are tricking out our Tiki mug!  Ch-ch-ch-check it out….

            What we used:

We started by spray painting the small candlestick holder (we got this one at Goodwill for next to nothing)

we should have used a primer before the paint, but hindsight is 20/20

     After allowing the paint to dry, we used Gorilla Glue to adhere some flat-back bling onto the candlestick holder.

Then, using puff paint, we created a little pattern comprised of dots.

We left the masterpiece to dry overnight.  The next morning, we lined the top ring of the holder with Gorilla Glue and set the Tiki on top.
