I love Cake Plates

What is not to love? It makes even the simplest chiffon cake look fab.

I know...this magazine spread ain't the simplest. But still, even just one of these cake stands will dress up any dining table. The cake stands below are my favorites and are in my wish list:

This lovely cake stand was once available in Target for only $8 (wish there's Target here in Manila). It doubles as punch bowl when you flip both the base and the cover upside down.

Cupcake decorated cake stand. How cute is that?!

Glass cake stand. I love it's simplicity.

Polka dots cake stand. Spell fun!

Three-tier cake stand

Vintage cake stand

Martha Stewart tiered cupcake stand

Cake plates can be expensive. I gave one as a wedding gift recently, it cost me about Php1500. I was not able to take a picture of the actual one I gave as a present but I found a similar design online:

This is called Alice in Wonderland Cake Plate from the UK store Cocomale. It's selling online for 26 UK pounds. About the same price as the one I got in Rustan's.

If you don't want to spend so much (I know you want to have more than one), you can do it yourself. All you need is a nice plate, sturdy candle holder and durable adhesive. There's a nice tutorial from yourhomebasedmom. Have fun!
