Materials and Tools Needed to a Make DIY Figurine Cake Dome
House bowl — Preferably flat bottomed
E-6000 or super glue
Plastic figurine — Optional
Cookies — Not optional!
Try to use a plate that already matches the color scheme (which in this case is white). This way you don’t have to paint it so that it still remains food and dishwasher-safe.
How to Make a DIY Figurine Cake Dome
Step 1 — For the top dome, spray paint a regular house bowl the color of your choice.
Let it dry completely.
Step 2 — Next, glue your figurine to the top and let it set.
The top will now only be able to be wiped clean with a damp sanitizing rag. But the bottom can still be run through the dishwasher like normal.
Toss in a few cookies, tarts, or the dessert of your choice, and you’re all set for a unique serving item for the holidays!
This would also be perfectly paired with your DIY Easter macaroons!
How To Store a Cake Without a Cake Dome?
If you’re looking for a way to store your cake without using a cake dome, there are a few options available to you.
One option is to use an upside-down bowl or plate. Another option is to cover the cake with plastic wrap.
Whatever method you choose, make sure that the cake is completely covered so that it doesn’t dry out.
This is why we highly recommend opting for the cake dome. It’ll just store the cake nicely!
