Is that gold glitter on there?!   
Nope. No gold glitter. The chocolate was sweating a bit as it was warming up (I had put it in the refrigerator to set). It had a nice effect though!

Thanks everyone for the kind comments.  Smiley

I have been known to make a cake consisting of brownies, chocolate mousse, and chocolate ganache. For this, I have dubbed myself the Queen of Chocolate and made a chocolate tiara to inform the world of my status. I freehanded the design made of dark, milk and white chocolate. This particular tiara is actually the fourth I made. The others did not survive long enough to take pictures. Fortunately, the prototypes were delicious. I think this is my husband's favorite craft project yet.



Yum!

A close-up




And even an action shot! However, I still think chocolate is better in your mouth than on your head.  Smiley

Thanks for looking!

If you want to tone it down (why would you?!), whitewash it. One coat of thinned down white paint applied with a rag does wonders.

Thanks for the advice. I am not sure if I want to tone it down or not. They just didn't quite turn out the way I wanted. The tile turned out perfectly though....so I just need to decide if I can adjust my expectations to how it actually looks.

First, your kitchen is loverly! I love how bright it is!
Second....
For me that means doing everything I want to do on plywood and then hanging it up with those amazing picture frame mounting strips that do not damage the surface to which they are affixed.
I've never heard of those! Where do you get them?
First, thanks! and second, I got them from Target. They are called Command Strips made by 3M. Here is a  link http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/Command/home/us_en/products/picture_hangers/. They are perfect for apartment living.

As most of you know, decorating an apartment is very frustrating with the prohibitions on painting. So, one has to get a little more creative. For me that means doing everything I want to do on plywood and then hanging it up with those amazing picture frame mounting strips that do not damage the surface to which they are affixed. So, as our kitchen was awfully plain, I attempted to jazz it up a bit. I was inspired by this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=30320.0  and then just took off from there. I tiled the backsplash and the cabinets were done with paint, paper and then given a topcoat. It is awfully bright, and I am trying to brainstorm ways to tone down the cabinets. I would like the tone to match that of the tile in the backsplash. I was thinking about using a paint glaze of some color (darker purple or a slate gray-like the grout on the backsplash) over top of the cabinets. Do you think that will work? Any other ideas?
Anyway, with no further ado I give you my kitchen.

If you have any ideas how to tone down the cabinets without totally redoing them, please let me know. Thanks for looking!
