I promised last week that I would share my lemon cake fake bake 
that I made with a Bundt shaped Jello Mold, and here it is:

Here is my Jello mold as I found it for $1- plastic and in a creamy, off-white color.

Note the little handled tabs, these will need to be 
taken into consideration when creating a base for the cake.

Wanting a brighter look of pure white icing, I used spray paint to recover the mold.

And then began adding lemon detailing with acrylic paint.

I also added more paint around the edges, allowing it to drip down the sides.

While that was drying, I created a base for the cake out of craft foam board.  Just cut a circle out that is a bit bigger than your mold (don't forget those handled tabs) and then paint in the color of your choice.

I used hot glue to attach the foam board to the bottom of the mold and then filled the center with leftover foam scraps from this artificial plant project.

And then it was on to the best part - decorating!  Using light weight joint compound I filled in the center, added dollops around the top and trimmed the bottom.  A faux lemon with a leaf on top and more paint drizzled around the bottom and it was done 😎

And there you have it- a lemon companion for the strawberry chocolate!
