I’m here again!
Every time I’m walking down the street and I see a shop window with lovely cake stands full of cupcakes or cakes, I can’t avoid stopping in front of them and stay admiring at the cakes for a while. Where everybody sees just a cake, I try to see further than this: I examine all kind of cakes, cupcakes, ingredients, shapes, fillings, ornaments… I imagine a bite of each cake in my mouth, mmmm… hahaha. Even I imagine myself making them happily in a huge kitchen… Sara, stop dreaming! I say to myself.
Speaking about cake stands… I have some cake stands at home, but not as many as I want. I don’t have enough space to store them. In addition, some of them are quite expensive. Do you experience the same? Would you like to have more variety of cake stands without spending a lot of money and without filling your cupboards with them?
Let me show you a nice solution. Make your own cake stands! I got my inspiration from Bea Roque. You just need a plate, a small bowl and some blu tack. Have a look:
You just have to stick some blu tack onto the base of the bowl and press the plate onto it.
As the blu tack can be easily removed, you can return to use your bowls and plates in a normal way, as well as making different combinations to get different cake stands models.
This idea is useful to have different cake stands when we take pictures of our cupcakes, for example. We can make bespoke cake stands for every occasion.
Look at this two tier cupcake stand:
I got these plates and bowls from Sainsbury’s. I noticed they were in offer and I decided to give them a try. There were plates and bowls from just 0’60 to 1’5 pounds!! A bargain, isn’t it?
Easy, cheap and quick!
I hope you find this idea useful!
See you in the next posts.
