When we finally get to summertime in the South and the heat and humidity reach really sweltering levels things really start to slow down. We close the little cottage shop, my Sweetie takes extra days off and all we really want to do is laze around rockin' on the front porch sippin' sweet tea. But the reality is we have an old house that needs a whole lotta work and we are gettin' slower and slower and everything is takin' longer and longer. So we continue to do a bit here and a bit there. Likewise I try to do a little bit of creatin' in the evenings and here are the latest in my "Just Faux Fun" treats.
I read on someone's blog that they just did not understand WHY anyone would want a "fake cake", they just did not get it. I remember the days of my childhood when you could visit any of my five Aunties and there would be some kind of goodie ... a coconut cake, red velvet or fabulous seven layer. There was always something beautiful and yummy on the sideboard inside a precious glass cake plate. With a faux cake I can have something that looks yummy yet won't need to be eaten before it spoils. For me the faux creations are little works of art and I love seeing them on a sideboard, buffet or in a hutch. They add beauty and color, sparkle and shine and make me smile. They help show off an antique or vintage cake plate, or the new one so pretty you could not resist. So I definitely get it. I think it is a "right brain" thing and people who are dominately "left brain" may have a difficult time "getting it" if they ever do at all. What do you think? Would you ever use a faux food creation in your decorating?
If you DO like faux goodies, leave me a comment and you will be entered into a drawing for a faux baby cake made just for you. Winner will be drawn on Friday next using Mrs. Glosser's Math goodies random number generator. I will then email you and find out what style of faux cake you would like.Until next time, my wish for you: May your days be filled with sweet treats.
