I, Lindsay have always been obsessed with sequins. There is just something about them that makes me happy.

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!
