How To Make Cute Mini Cake Slice Squishies!

Squishies have become a pretty popular thing lately. There are so many different designs, like food, animals and many more. Many people make their own squishies, but they use things like memory foam and formulas made from harsh chemicals. But did you know that you can actually make your own using make up sponges?

To start making your squishy, gather all of these items:

  • Triangular Make-Up Sponges
  • Fabric Paint
  • Popsicle Stick
  • Toothpick
  • Paintbrush

Start by mixing up the colour that you would like the actual cake to be painted. It should be some shade of brown – a lighter brown would be vanilla, and darker would be chocolate. If you don’t have brown on hand, you can combine colours to make brown.

Paint the cake in the brown colour that you just made. Make sure that you don’t do a  really thick layer of paint! You want to be able to see the spongy texture of the make-up sponge – it makes the squishy look more like cake. (TIP: You don’t need to paint the top of the makeup sponge or the back.)

Now, put it upside down to dry, so that the painted side is facing up. The drying process can take up to four hours.

When it is done the drying, choose the colour that you are going to use for the frosting of the cake. Apply a thick layer of this colour with a popsicle stick on the top and the back of the cake. You want it to look like icing – so make sure that it’s not completely smooth.

Now use a toothpick to paint a thin line of frosting in the middle of the cake.

It’s time to let it dry. The drying process can take anywhere from eight to twenty-four hours, depending on how thick the frosting is.

When it’s dry, it’s time to squish it! Enjoy!
