The Cake Stand Project: A collection of uniquely styled cake stands

May, 27, 2016

To quote Julia Childs “A party without a cake is just a meeting.” Boy was she right, but the cake stand over the years has proven to serve many uses. This past week I joined a very talented group of blogger to share how each of us style our own cake stands. In addition to the 12 of us I have collected up a few of my personal favorites who played along with the Instagram hashtag #TheCakeStandProject. Please swing on over to Instagram and follow these feeds. There’s some serious EYE CANDY going on!

Here’s my submission. A whimsical combination of a cake stand and mini cupcake stands purchased at HomeGoods. A store bought white cake is the canvas for a fresh floral topper. The kids were breathing down my neck on this photo shoot. @memehillstudio

My friend Amy styled her cake plates for an afternoon of fun and goodies for her kids. I love her use of turquoise and lemon yellow. I wonder if any of the lemon bars are left over? @crazychicdesign
