I’ve had this crazy DIY sugar flower cake idea floating around in my head for a while now, and I figured it was finally due time to make it happen with Spring coming early and the fact that.. I just love cake. Sounds like good reasoning, right?! Alright, it was a little more complicated than that, but it all worked out in the end because holy crap this thing turned out awesome.
It actually required me enlisting the help of some pro’s to bring this DIY vision of mine together, but it turned out even better than I had imagined!

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..
I, Lindsay, have always been obsessed with sequins. There is just something about them that makes me happy. So when I stumbled upon Ashley’s DIY Sequin Marquee Heart, I obviously fell in love, so I decided to do the next best thing – make it into a DIY marquee light cake!
I had so much fun making this! I will admit, waiting for the sequin heart to dry does take a little patience (which I don’t have very much of), but it was so worth it in the end. The combination of the sequin heart and the small led lights make this cake a true showstopper! … Read More
