When the Enviro-Cakes™ company recently contacted me and asked if I would do a review and give-away of one of their cool terrarium Enviro-Cakes™, I was pretty darned excited.Enviro-cakes kit

Why? I am going nuts people – it’s winter, there is snow on the ground in my neighborhood and I have not seen or touched a garden in months. I have garden-fever and am darned tired of the view out the window. I NEED to build a garden!!!

When the package arrived, it had all the ingredients to whip up a really cool terrarium, but instead of the old-fashioned style terrarium, this is set in a cake display. Totally cute, I can see an Enviro-Cake as a great activity for both adults and children to help break up the winter blahs.

Following the directions for assembling the cake is a snap.  First, you layer the bottom with moss, gravel, charcoal, and soil. Enviro-cake being builtNext add plants, top moss, decorative rocks, gravel and Spanish moss onto the clear saucer provided. Place the gorgeous plant display on the cake plate, spray with water, and cover.

After one week, the dome of your cake plate should have condensation in the morning hours and clear up in the evening hours and require no watering – by building the cake-like terrarium you create a little mini rain-forest inside the cake plate. I love the idea of bringing a little green indoors and it was really fun to build!!

It would be awesome if you followed BOTH Enviro-Cakes™ and me on our Facebook Fan Pages, but it is NOT a requirement of the contest.
