I dont know about you, but i LOVE cake plates. No, not the little plates that come in your dishes set, i talking the real- um, ok, some call them cake 'stands'?
I was recently at an antique store in Winfield, Kansas ( i'm not saying the name because i cannot remember it and i didnt buy anything there) where in one of the rooms she had a great big dining room table FULL, i talkin' COVERED with cake plates. Light green, pale blue and pink, nontransparent glass and simple, smooth, beautiful stands.
I have two of my own that i've picked up at estate sales so that inspired me to bake a cake yesterday. Maybe i should post my recipe? Anyway, the cake looks great on the plate so i thought that if you did not have a cake plate, you need to get one! Here are some of my favorite pictures i found while looking around the web because i love them so much and i couldnt resist.
(OK so i'm on ANOTHER kick now. So what?)
How neat! i should paint one for display like this!
ok now i want a square one...
one of mine looks a lot like this
so delicate and darling
Crystal! i think i'd be afraid to own this one! ( i'm sometimes such a klutz!)
Well, that's all for now.
Headed for the fabric store again today!
I hope you enjoyed these wonderful cake plate pictures.
Which is your favorite? Do you just love cake plates or do already have one of your own?
