Candy Buttons, cake and a boring Friday night...

While Mike is at work and I'm sooo bored at home on a Friday night, I baked a cake for my friend Rene, whose b-day is tomorrow....I decorated it with button candies that I made with a mold that I bought online here. They look cute and they are also yummy!...
Mike está trabajando hoy hasta tarde, así que gracias al aburrimiento de encontrame un viernes por la noche sola en casa, decidí hacer una tartita para mi amigo René que cumple años mañana. Esos botones son de caramelo, y los hice utilizando un molde que compre aqui. Quedan chulos y además, están buenísimos!

Bulletin Board


My friend Marta asked me for instructions to do this bulletin they are :
(Marta, perdona que esten en ingles...hace un tiempo una amiga me las pidio, y se las mande en ingles, pero si alguna o alguno quiere hacer este "corcho", y no las entiende o las quiere en español, decidmelo y las traduzco en un "plis-plas", ok???)
Paint your bulletin board (with normal paint) with a neutral color that matches the one* (spray paint) that you want to use for the lace pattern (*this is the color that it's going to all over your bulletin board. I did mine in black)
Let it dry, and then, buy some cheap lace curtains in Savers, or D.I. or some place similar, and staple it to your bulletin board, very close to the edges (you will remove the staples later, but the lace fabric has to be very tense).
Spray the bulletin with the spray paint, be very generous. The more you spray, the darker the color will be.
Let it dry for a day or two, and then remove the staples and the fabric, and...tada!!!!!!!!!!!...
