I love baking cakes and presenting them on raised cake plates and over the years I've collected quite a few of these plates. This blue stand was my mother's and she often put my birthday cake on it.
My friend Peter got me this Martha Stewart jadite cake stand which is perfect for an 8" layer cake.
Another friend got me this for a birthday a few years later. This one, with a glass top, is just right for a larger 10" cake.
I found this milk glass stand at an antique store on a trip to New Brunswick with my parents. It's small but perfect for tarts or a small cake.
This larger milk glass stand with embossed grapes was found at a yard sale, twelve or more years ago, when my parents and I did our weekly Saturday yard sale circuit.
And on Saturday, Richard and I were in Hawkesbury at their annual "free" garage sale day (the day they don't need to buy a permit) and I found this lovely hobnail Fenton stand with a ruffle. I can't wait to bake a cake. Quick. Someone have a birthday!
