Friday’s strawberry cake was so good that I plan on making it again for company. Todd was happy with a big slice of undecorated cake on our usual plates, but I’m on the lookout for some new dinnerware. Plus, I still haven’t found my dream cake carrier – the one that doubles as a cake stand thanks to a pull-out stem. Someone needs to invent this. For now I’ll just keep using a carrier, cake lifter and cover. Does anyone have a cake butler? This one looks nicer than than my current cake carrier and the plate it sits on appears fairly elegant in the photo.
Oh, and did I mention I bought a cake lifter? I was complaining about lifting cakes a few weeks ago and didn't know such a thing existed. Well, it does and it's great. I also use it to lift off the top layer of a cake I've split horizontally.
But here's what I haven't bought yet. I love this particular cake cover, but it seems more like a gift item than something I'd buy myself...but maybe I should? I feel like I need this cake cover.
As for cake stands, I wish I had room for a whole cake stand collection. They’re so pretty and they really come in handy when I have people over and need a nice way to present cheese and crackers or appetizers. Cake stands are another thing I need to remember for my next gift list.
Cookies are so much simpler than cakes. They don't need any equipment or accessories to look good; but when you start making cakes, you want to show them off.
