"Eat Cake"...

...I love to eat cake no matter what it is served in but how fun would it be if you had this to greet you every time you went for a piece!
I started with an "antique" cake dome I found...
Painted it some bright happy colors - with polka dots of course, but the possibilities are endless - monograms, scenery, family stick figures, seasonal - oh my

...Don't forget to dress up the knob...

...put a coat of varnish on it to protect it (I don't paint the base for food safety) and TADA - simple, simple but oh so cute!

Now tell me, who wants some cake?
Happy Tuesday!
Cathy

You are so very creative. I tried the salt dough Easter ornaments and posted them on my blog...but I'm no artist. Yours look sooooo good....mine...almost scary!!! As you already know...I LOVE your blog...wished we lived closer so I could visit your shop and nursery! Hope you have a blessed week!

How cute! You do the most creative things. I see those domes at thrift stores all the time. What kind of paint did you use? ;-)

Love this idea. I have a couple of old cake domes, but have never thought of painting them. I hope you got my message on Facebook about the Zumba classes.
