New Year's Eve Cake!

This cake is a little time consuming, but it is so worth it and it looks so cool.

Cake mix (I used Pillsbury Moist Supreme Strawberry)
1 cup of water
1/2 cup of oil
3 eggs
Vanilla icing
Wilton candy melts
Wilton silver color mist
Wilton black gel tube

You're baking a one-layer cake and 12 mini cupcakes.
Preheat the oven to 350.
Combine water, oil, eggs, and cake mix and mix until moistened.
I don't remember all of this off the top of my head, however, I know all of the information is on the side of the box. I baked it until I could stick a toothpick in and the toothpick came out clean.
Set them to cool for about an hour.

While the cake is cooling, take 12 Candy Melts and spray them with the Silver Color Mist until their covered, these also take a while to dry so when you're done, let everything set for about an hour.

When the cake is cool, frost it and spray it with a gentle layer of Silver Color Mist.

When the numbers have dried, squeeze a pile of Black Gel Icing onto a plate and use a toothpick to dip and write the numbers on each of the Candy Melts. Stick them on each of the cupcakes in ways of a clock. 

The hands are one skewer cut in the middle and covered in black gel icing. One is a bit longer than the other, just as the hands on a regular clock are. To cover the base, I just made a circle out of icing.

And you're done!
