I have a fire truck cake to do for a guy my hubby works with. I had an idea of including working lights but I don't even know how I would do this. Anyone have any thoughts or tips?
Bet you could find some small battery powered lights at a hobby shop.
Hi Lisa, Our local dollar store (Ontario Canada) sells magnetic pins that flash different colors of light (red, blue green and yellow). It is the kind you can attach and where without putting holes in your clothing.
They work on a watch battery, and since they are magnetic you would not use the disk at the back with the magnet just the light itself. You could probably affix it with RI or edible glue.
Not to sure if it is food safe as most dollar store items here locally have had lead warnings issued (for painted wooden toys) but it may be a way to go if it is safe.
Hope this helps...Miss Lizzy
I just found at my craft store Pat Catans they sell the small rounded at the end clear bulbs for like 1.00 each or 12 for like 9.00 you could color the tips and stick them in, they blink for 12 hours it says.
Perfect timing! the wedding I did Saturday night had little tiny lights secured to the stems of upside down wine glasses as the centerpiece. The entire light wasn't more than 1.5" long. The event planner said she got them at Hobby Lobby. They were AWESOME looking!!!
Thank you all so much! It sounds a lot easier than I was thinking it would be. I will check into what y'all recomened in the next day or so. Cake will be in one week.
