But my cake baker at Sweetie Pies looked at me as if I was crazy - how was she going to fit a three tiered 18" cake on that tiny cake stand?
So in the end, I ditched the stand idea all together and ended up with this:
Pink and Red ribbons with fresh flowers. When all was said and done, I loved the cake and thought it looked fine with no stand.
Fast forward to today...and my love of Etsy...and I find these:
Where were these back in 2004?! Sarah's Stands come in a gajillion (okay 73) colors and are so darn perfect! I wish that these were available. Hers come in all different sizes too so your cake baker can't complain!
Has anyone else out there found fantastic cake stands?
