Cake Stands found here >>> http://therochestudio.com/
I have really been into cakes, if you haven't noticed. Whether cupcakes, cheesecakes, cake-cakes, ANY cake! And I always think taste comes before presentation 100% of the way, so I try to bake cakes that taste really good and I know I will enjoy eating and sharing with family. Once I gathered a few recipes here and there, I began picking up tricks on how to decorate and make the cakes look delicious on the outside too... like icing and frosting the cake, adding fruits, nuts, or chocolate for garnish, and just making it look pretty.
Speaking of pretty, what's a cake without a beautiful cake stand to put it on top of. For a while I have been shopping around for different styles of cake stands, different colors, shapes, and sizes. But I can't seem to find one I love. Mostly it's because the cake stands my eyes gravitate to in the stores are way over the amount of money I want to spend. So I browsed online for styles of cake stands I like and here's a few that fit my taste.
Here's what happened today: I went to a local thrift shop in town and scanned the kitchenware isle with a hawk's eye! I made sure to check pretty much everywhere for cake stands. But I had no luck. Instead, I found beautiful detailed white porcelain plates and pink bowls (which are probably ice cream bowls, from the looks of them), and decided to put the two together to make a DIY cake stand.
Here's how it turned out...
Here's pretty much what you'll need: 1) Ice cream bowl; 2) Flat plate, 3) Strong-enough glue (I haven't glued these together yet, but i'm planning on using a glue gun.
The kitchen lighting is washing out this pink color on the bowl, but if I can describe it better, it's like a pastel vintage pink color.
EXACTLY RIGHT! yay!
$2 (not including the glue).
Stay fun and creative!
& Happy Thanksgiving!!!
