Sometimes you can come across something perfect (and simple) just by chance or happinstance. More often, these days, it's because you have it bookmarked on your computer.
I was looking at some vintage cake stands recently in Kingston, they were retailing at about £50.00. They were lovely, but Oh sooo expensive, for what was really two second hand plates. and then....
I found the most fabulous link on the Guardian's website:-
How to Make a Vintage Cake Stand.
I'm certainly going to have a go, though it will probably have to wait until September, when I'm back in London!
Here are a few photos of cake stands I have come across recently. How I would love one to show my baking off on!

Do let me know if you decide to have a go! I'd love to see the finished results.
