Cake Stand State of Mind
Hey Modern Farmhouse Girl!
I'm currently obsessed with cake stands.
It's true! If I could buy up all the green jadeite cake stands, white milk glass cake stands and pink crown tuscan cake stands from my favorite New York City store, Fishs Eddy, I would. And I would be broke (they're each $115 WITHOUT the glass dome! And you gotta get the pretty glass dome). But look how gorgeous they are! It might be worth it...
What can I say? I'm in a cake stand state of mind. I'm planning to go to the Brimfield Antique Show in July with my mom for my birthday and I already know: I'll be on the hunt for vintage cake stands. I have a vision of pink and green cake stands on top of my kitchen cabinets. It's going to look so sweet!
There's just something about a cake stand in the center of your kitchen table that makes you want to bake (at least for me). You just want to put something delicious on display! And ever since I've scooped up two adorable cakes stands, both STEALS-OF-DEALS, I've been baking something every weekend: brownies, chocolate chip cookies, bundt cakes, to fill them with.
This is my favorite recent find—a $30 green milk glass cake stand by The Pioneer Woman whose Walmart collection, I must say, is fantastic (it was just on sale at Walmart for $19.99 when I got it):
In person this looks like $115 bucks
I also got this pretty flower pattern cake stand from IKEA for $12.99 and it still costs that today:
Of course, this wouldn't be a roundup by Lucy Lemonade if it didn't include something by Joanna Gaines! And she's killing me with cuteness here --- Hearth & Hand by Magnolia CUPCAKE STANDS for $5.99 each in my favorite green:
Also, her Allison Cakestand from Magnolia.com is a steal at $32. I might need one of these in green...
Ending on a sweet note, you need to buy Joanna's new Magnolia Table Cookbook. Below is my version of her Lemon Bundt Cake which I made for a recent friends' brunch. (Pictured on the Pioneer Woman's cake stand!) I also highly recommend Joanna's chocolate chip cookies. (Pink check under-the-sink curtain custom-made by my Mom.)
