On the Hunt: Pretty Cake Stands

December 27, 2010 | By | Comments (0)

I’m not normally a resoultion maker. But this year, I’m setting some goals for myself. I’m an amateur baker, and I’ve never tackled a layer cake. So that’s one thing I want to learn to do this year.


And of course I’ll need a gorgeous cake stand in order to frost it and serve it. This is one of my favorite cake stands from Fishs Eddy:




I’d love for my cake to turn out like this three tiered beauty from Bakerella. But I’ll be happy if my first one isn’t horribly lopsided.


Here are some other cake stand options I’m considering:


Footed Cake Platter with Lid from Crate and Barrel, $57 (I love that this one has a lid, but the lip around the edge would be tricky when it comes to frosting the cake.)




Cake Stand Crown Tuscan 10″ from Fishs Eddy, $68




DIY Cake Stand Tutorial from Eat Drink Pretty (I love the yellow. It would look perfect in my yellow kitchen.)




Vintage Fenton Hobnail White Milkglass Cake Stand from FQMercantile on Etsy, $79




Cake-Decorating Stand from Sur La Table, $100 (It rotates!)



Do you have a home-related goal for the new year? Or something new you want to learn how to do in 2011?
