We’；ve given you the Cameo Silhouette Plaque DIY and the Cameo Silhouettes 3 Ways DIY， but now that I’；m in love with mod podge I think I’；ve created the easiest silhouette tutorial ever. The vintage plate makes for a beautiful frame and the whole project took about 15 minutes. This project falls into both our Under $5 and Under an Hour categories， and I think it would make a great giftmost popular housewarming gifts， do you agree？Get the full Hanging Vintage Plate Cameo DIY after the jump…；DIY Cameo on a Vintage Plate1. Assemble your materials. You needMod Podge(I used glossy)， a sponge brush， a vintage plate (this one is actually new， i got it for $2 at a store called “；BARGAINS”； around the corner) and a picture of your subject. Measure the inside of your plate and print out the image the size you would like to be. For my salad plate I printed out my silhouette 2.5″； tall. My print out is a black silhouette because Jacinda made me one for Prudent Advice for My Baby Daughter， but if you only have an actual picture that’；s fine， just make sure it is a profile shot (duh) and print it out. You can visit the DIY Cameo Silhouettes 3 Ways post here for more specific details on cutting it out.

Before heading out to the lovely Wilton Workshop (that we were facebooking and tweeting about non-stop a few weeks back), my daughter made me promise that upon my return we would make some cake for her class party at school. NOT A PROBLEM! So, while at the ridiculous-giant-amazing Wilton tent sale, I snagged a bunch of fun pans, one of which was this popsicle mini cake pan. These are perfect for playing with fondant! I had used fondant once before, to create a ridiculous over-the-top cake for Scarlet’s Circus First Birthday, and I think I was too ambitious and scared myself off of fondant for a few years. Well, after getting some basic instruction at the workshop, I was newly excited to dig in for some fondant fun, as was Scarlet. It really is a blast to do with your kids. You might even call it edible play dough? Wait, play doug is edible isn’t it? Well fondant tastes better. Let me show you how we made a different kind of cake pop and some fondant basics after the jump…Fun with Fondant
