DIY: Gilded Cake Numbers
store bought cake wax numbers
metallic gold acrylic paint
gold glitter paint
egg crate (the texture allows the numbers to dry without losing half the paint to the surface you place them on)
1. Use a small piece of tape to cover the bottom of each number. This part goes into the cake-- you want to avoid covering it in paint.
2. With scissors, cut the wick of the candle off as close to the base as possible. Since you will be painting it with acrylic, it won't be safe to light them anyway (these will simply be for decoration).
....also, on another note. If you don't follow me on Instagram or are a friend on my personal Facebook, you may not know, but I've got big news over here!
The program is about 2 years and I have big plans afterwards! I am sure I will keep you all posted as the months go by. Eeek!
