For one of my Boss's birthdays, I decided to make a cake. He is into sailing, so I tried to figure out something to do with that. I had a hard time figuring out how to make a 3D boat out of food, without spending a million hours on it. So, I ended up running to the store and looking for a toy. I found this cute little boat.

I bought glass blocks from a craft store that was going out of business. I bought several and have been struggling coming up with ways to use them. One thing I've done was make one for each season. Below is Fall. On my Cricut, I printed out images on brown vinyl and stuck them onto the front of the block. On the back, I attached scrapbooking paper. I like the overall look, very simple.For Halloween, I didn't do anything until the night of. I happened to have these promotional Coca Cola bottles. They light up various different colors and I have several hanging around my house. So, I quickly wrote Happy Halloween with my Cricut and lined it with white paper. Then I stick a small piece of tape on it and put it directly on the bottles.
My first time making Cake Balls was a huge hit (I had previously made cake pops for Christmas). I made Red Velvet for my Boss's birthday.
So, I made them again for Boss's Day. I made Red Velvet with Cream Cheese frosting, Chocolate with Chocolate frosting, and Vanilla with chocolate and vanilla frosting. They were another big hit.
