Hello Lovelies! I’m finally getting around to sharing with you a super easy diy project that can totally add that extra glam to your next home event or styled photoshoot. On a normal occasion I would recommend heading to your local favorite cake baker to create a one of a kind sweet creation, however when life gets busy and you’re in a pinch you’ll thank me for this quick fix.

A few months ago my very talented vendor friends and I decided to do a killer photo-shoot, that was featured on none other than Style Me Pretty, see a few of the juicy dets here.¬†Unfortunately a little hiccup with the cake landed me in a very interesting position just 24 hours before our shoot. We needed a cake and stat, determined to have something that looked gorgeous and would photograph well I decided to go with a naked cake. So there I was, 24 hours before ¬†a shoot calling my local grocery stores to see which one had a simple-naked cake that I could adorn with fresh blooms. About an hour later I found a $7.99 cake, yes lovelies you are actually looking at a store bought cake that is under $10 (SCORE!). The ladies at the bakery were sweet enough to whip this up for me when I explained my dilemma and boy am I thankful. I topped it with a few fresh flowers and we were off, and it is fabulous. My in a pinch skills totally paid off and yours will too. If you plan on pulling this off remember to go with a simple cake, it doesn’t have to be naked but it does have to be simple and if you do plan to go with fresh flowers please remember to wrap those stems up with floral tape.
