So, please forgive my lack of blogging. Currently my life is being consumed by exams! aaaahhhh!!! NO! Not...EXAMS!!!
So, as you can see I am currently delirious.
Not really, they haven't really been so awful. Just the usual time-consuming, stress-inducing exams but I'm optimistic no permanent damage will be done.
So, I have a new craft to share. I must admit though, that once again I stole the idea...but hey, isn't that what good ideas are for? Stealing...umm, I mean borrowing?...Well, either way.
I got the idea from here.
It's a non-traditional cake stand! What fun!
Seriously, it's fun.
All you have to do is:
1. Find a plate that you like (you can even paint one to use. Hint: World Market has plain white plates for $2-3!)
2. Find something that you like to use as the base. It can literally be anything. You'll see...
3. Use a strong adhesive (Hint: Steel Epoxy is cheap and VERY effective. Additional Hint: It's a little messy)
4. Bake something yummy to put on your new cakestand!
I preferred to use a mason jar that I bought at Hobby Lobby (duh!) that I filled with some pretty, clear beads:
After I attached the plate I baked some yummy chocolate chip pumpkin mini muffins to put on it for my Christmas party:
Here's a pic of the food table with other plates that are not permanently attached to mason jars (I forgot to take the pic pre-party so it's mid-party & as you'll see, some cookies have already been snagged =)
