I was at Ikea picking up some supplies for my office/craft room overhaul, when I spotted a plain white cake server set for only $6.
Ikea white cake server set (or any set)
Gold spray paint
Gold glitter craft paint
1) Grab your painter's tape and tape up the server to expose the handle only. * (seriously, I forgot to photograph this step!? But I did- I had terrible pregnancy brain & I am sorry!!)
2) Spray paint, let dry and remove tape.
*You can go without spray painting, but you will need several coats of glitter paint and it will be much less of a bright gold. Alternatively you can use plain gold craft paint, but gold spray paint has much more of the metallic look I like.
** Or you can just leave it as is and not add glitter- the gold handles look pretty awesome!

3) I applied three coats of gold glitter craft paint to make mine glittery. Because it is craft paint, the glitter does not shed, but you do need multiple coats for a more glittery look.
4) Finish with a gloss spray.
These are not dishwasher safe... I know... it is what we all prefer, but since it is my cake utensil set which gets use only a couple times a year, I can suck it up. The price of a glitter cake cutter set in stores is way more money than the approximate $10 I spent here!

I have no need for more than one cake server set, but I kind of want to buy another and do a different design! Love the glitter dipped look, but maybe some pink next time?
