This weekend we celebrated Diwali, the festival of lights. And since I”m on a bit of a budget trying to save up for baby, I was trying to come up with creative and cost effective ideas to display the yummy desserts.

So I visited a couple resale shops and found some colourful candlesticks. Then just glued a plate on top and added a cake topper and voila, instant cake/dessert stand!

A friend gave me this delicious and sticky sweet coconut ladoo recipe.

I also got little tea saucers and glued them to dessert bowls. It worked out as a nice way to display desserts individually. I think it would look cute with individual cupcakes.

What kind of DIY projects were you up to this weekend?
