Well after coming up with yesterday’s DIY Valentine’s, I got to thinking — Why try to reinvent the wheel when we could just let the pro’s, who have already put it so eloquently, say it all for us instead? I mean, we’re all buggin’ (see what I did there?) over here for not having thought of this before now, so I’m happy to introduce you to our DIY pop culture song lyric cupcake toppers for Valentine’s Day.
Whether it’s surprising the office with a few words of relationship wisdom, or just letting Hanson say everything you couldn’t quite muster up to your loved one in one short phrase, like “mmbop, du ba dop, ba du bop”, we’ve got pretty much every occasion covered riiiiight here with a complete set for a baker’s dozen…
In case you’re looking for a gift that literally says “I love you, but I also want to gift something that I like to eat, too”, then these DIY gradient message macarons are perfect for you. That and the fact that you don’t have to be a skilled painter by any means to be able to make these. If you can aim hairspray, then you’ve got this!
Admittedly this also about me wanting another excuse to repurpose this gradient idea after the cute little video we made back in December, and phrases for Valentine’s Day seemed pretty fitting, right? I mean, how many times have you wanted to relay the message “just netflix” in the nicest way possible before? My point exactly…
So I’m thinking of starting a new series called “Because Why Not” in honor of all of my ridiculous ideas that I usually don’t post because I think to myself “Why would people actually make this?”, and then I justify to myself that they wouldn’t, so I don’t share it. Then I got to thinking, “Why not?!”, and so that brings me to my first in this new series entitled Because Why Not: Slang Cakes edition!
No, they won’t actually all be cakes in this series, but it just so happens that we were laughing about cakes with our friend Monica from Paper Flour Ink (remember the master behind this post?!), and we started coming up with ideas of cakes we would’ve thought were AMAZING back in the day, and we ended up creating these crazy cake toppers from laser cut acrylic (thanks to Monica’s designs). Alas, here we are with slang cakes galore.
Not to worry, at least I left out the phrase “Suck it!!”. Remember that one from the WWF season in life? What the heck were we thinking back then?! Or maybe it was just me having a little brother..
