I make a lot of tiny cakes. There's only two people in my household and making a large one would be excessive. So that's just fine and dandy but something that's been starting to get to me is the fact that these little cakes look so silly on my nice cake stand.
See what I mean? Not so majestic sitting up there. It's like wearing clothes that are too big, it's not flattering in the slightest.
The thing is, though, that I'd never had a real reason other than vanity to have a little cake stand. The large one does a fine job of displaying my cakes and there was no need for anything more.
That time has come.
In planning to host these seven people at my humble abode for a couple of meals I also planned to bake a cake! What kind of host would I be if I didn't? One that didn't serve cake, obviously.
So wouldn't one full sized cake be more than enough? Normally, this would be true, but one of my guests has some allergies and she'll be getting her very own tiny gluten and dairy free cake!
Now that the big stand will be host to a butter and wheat flour cake I'm going to need something else to display the tiny one.
I know that there are many do-it-yourself cake stands out there, but this is a first for me.
For this project I gathered
- A dry erase marker
- Small glass dish
- Small glass cup-thing
- Q-tip, one cotton end cut off
