Imagine all the cool things waiting to be transformed....



Hi Everyone....

One day as we walked on the beach I spotted a wonderful rock that reminded me of a slice of cake...(as most things do lol)

so I grabbed it and carried the huge piece all the way home..

I finally painted the rock into a yummy slice of cake...and then went and found 3 more smaller rocks in the shapes of berries that I painted as delicious strawberries....for garnish...


I finished all the pieces and then placed them of a serving tray and now this yummy sculpture rests on one of the counters in our kitchen....Cole loves it....he laughs about it everyday....and always says..."Is it yummy?"

hahahaha....
What fun!
I am submitting this cake to Inspire Me Thursday ....as I think it is perfect for the best silver fork you have....
have a wonderful day...
Hugs
Diana

OMG! I thought it was real. You are something else, truly wonderfully artistic. You turned this rock into one adorable art object. I just hope no one bites into the cake or if they do, they better have good dental insurance!

Lol! This is so lovely and what a great idea...now, I'll have to start looking at rocks differently! And your little cutie gets more adorable each time you post a new pix! :)

This is wonderful! I would have tried to dig in to that! Yum! I thought it was real as well, and those berries are phenomenal!

Diana Evans said...

Wow, that really does look yummy! And if it makes that cute fella laugh, then it couldn't have a better reason to be.

Flying Colors said...

Oh ! You could have fooled me and the poor silver fork that tried to take a bite... poor teeth or prongs!

Very clever and well done. Have a great day!

Cindy DiBlasi said...

Genius!!! I love it! Only YOU would see a slice of cake and strawberries in rocks. :) And you did a wonderful job painting it!!!

Cathy said...

i would totally eat that.... if I could. Thanks, its 6 in the morning and I'm craving chocolate cake. I wish I lived next door to you, then I could eat cake all the time, and chill with you and Cole!

This turned out nice! You should do these as door stops for kitchens and sell them on etsy!

Crafty Green Poet said...

wow that's impressive!

tangled stitch said...

This is very clever. Great interpretation of silver and it looks like a real cake. I'm hungry.

mariapacewynters said...

Diana, this is awesome! My kids would love this, although I would worry that it would make me feel like chocolate cake even more than I already do!
