By now most of you know about my obsession with making cakes. I don't mean those cakes from a Betty Crocker box, I mean elaborate creations that have tons of steps and take hours to complete. An epic cake of these proportions deserves, and requires, beautiful presentation. Unfortunately I don't have a cake platter or a cake stand... imagine how sad my gorgeous cakes look on a boring old everyday dinner plate! That's why I asked you to head off to market in search of cool cake plates. Just in time too: it's YumSugar's birthday on Monday, my half birthday on Friday, and my sister's birthday in 2 weeks so looks like I have a lot of fabulous excuses to go all out making cakes. You guys found some pretty plates and saved them in the Yum Market with the tag Cake Plate. I totally appreciate all your searching. Here are my favorites:
A couple more, so
The exact opposite type of cake: an old fashioned layered one with thick, rustically spread frosting calls for a classic glass cake dome. Chlyn discovered this beauty that every at home baker needs. Even if you aren't serving the cake on this platter you need a safe place to hold the left overs.
A complete sucker for anything shiny, and I love this beaded crystal cake plate submitted by amyfinke. What better way to feel like a princess on your birthday than with a cake presented to you on this sparkling plate?
