Fake Cake!

I found a fake cake at a thrift store! It’s chocolate :) with white chocolate curls and red filling ;) It’s on a glass pedestal and has a glass dome. I think it’s pretty cute.

Someday when I have my own adorable kitchen it will adorn my counter :) I plan on making my own faux cakes and cupcakes soon. That will be an interesting project to share lol. All the best everyone!

Hi Alli! Oh, I thought I was looking at a real live you can eat me cake! This is wonderful and it came with the dome and everything? Great deal. I've seen others who make the little faux cakes and cupcakes and thought it might be fun to make some one day!

Oh, about the tassel. I bought that one in Maryland and paid more than I should have for it, but I wanted it!
Then just a couple of weeks ago I found two from the same company you said at Marshalls for pennies!
Me too, I love Marshalls!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

That looks like really nice one. I have one also..NOT that big and NOT that nice and...I didn't find the EXPENSIVE thing in a thrift store! I am purely jealous! But...happy for you! (she said grudgingly!)
Hugs and love~

Yes, yes...I know I already commented but...I just wanted to add that I have never, ever..seen a post that I just loved and thought was the cutest thing ever, than the one you posted "These are a few of my favorite things"...

Yesterday at the graduation party for Alex...I found myself talking about you as though you in my life and not a precious cyber friend. I told them all about where you went to school, about Taylor..and then I remembered...
None of them
Anyway..I just wanted you to know that!

Hi Allison,
I can't believe you found that at a thrift store! That is too cool! What a find!

Sares said...

This cake looks soooo real. It looks good enough to eat! All I could do would be to stare at it and long for something chocolate, what a teaser.

Hope you had a wonderful Memorial day. Tomorrow it's back to the grind!

bj said...

Oh, gosh..Allison, this is precious. I would love to find one. Now, when you start making them, maybe I can buy one from YOU!!
Happy night...

What a deal! I know how much those things cost at the designer's shop I used to work for! I could only afford CUPCAKES!! ;)

Rosemary said...

This is really cute Alli.
It looks so real. The only problem I would have is, that It would make me want a piece of real cake when I looked at it all day.
I have seen the cupcakes too, and they do look good enough to eat.
Can't wait to see the ones you make.

Hi Allison, thanks for stopping by my blog. I was just like you when I was your age. You don't find many 20 year olds that are so domestic and like to decorate like you. You have a great blog, Cheryl

Your faux cake and stand are so cute. I have a cupcake stand and dome which I keep a ceramic cupcake/candle, this is the momma version. I hope it survives the next earthquake.

Brenda Eason said...

It is a beautiful cake. It does look real.

Terry said...

Hi Alli
oh my gosh it looks sooooo real !
What a fantastic find.
It would be a lot of fun to make these delightful fat free cakes .
I have never tried to make one .
You'll have to post all the photos when ever you get around to making some of these delicious cuties.
In the meantime I am so glad you shared this one.
Have a wonderful week.

I am in LOVE with your faux cake! I have an addiction to fake foods and that one takes the cake! LOL! If you figure out how to make them, you so have to share!
