Hudson's little friend, Giada also celebrated her first birthday recently. They were born within 24 hours of each other.
Giada's mom made the sweetest candle for her birthday cake. Here's how...
I wanted a cute candle for Giada’s Pink Ombré cake. However, all the candles had lots of bold colors or didn’t match what I had envisioned. I just wanted a plain candle!
So, my cake decorator suggested this idea. I was so excited that I could decorate the candle exactly how I wanted. I bought a regular #1 candle, Elmer’s rubber cement, and fairy dust sparkles.
I was so excited…but the outer lining of the candle was showing up because my sparkles were such a light color.
I almost gave up on my sparkly candle dream. Then my mother in law suggested scraping off the outside. Brilliant! It’s just wax, right? Now, the candle was plain white, I added more rubber cement, and LOTS of glitter.
The candle worked perfectly and matched my princess’ cake!
