I am hosting a little soiree for friends and family. I baked a beautiful cake but while looking through my cupboards, I noticed I don’t have anything pretty to display the cake on. Should I start shopping for a cake stand or can I make one?
Great question! Hosting a soiree can be a daunting task because we want everything to be perfect for our guests. As any baker will tell you, the presentation of your cake is just as important as the recipe – so let’s make sure your cake looks fabulous!
When baking a cake, I love displaying it on a unique cake stand. Today, I will show you one of my all time favourite cake stand projects.
Terra Cotta Cake Stand
- Terra Cotta Pot
- Terra Cotta Saucer
- Krylon Dual Paint and Primer – Banner Red
Spray two coats of paint on the Terra Cotta pot and saucer in “Banner Red” using Krylon Dual Paint + Primer.
Apply silicone to the bottom of the Terra Cotta pot and set it in the middle of the saucer.
Flip it over and voila, you have a beautiful cake stand for your cake! CAUTION: For sanitary reasons, do not place the cake directly on the cake stand. First place a layer of parchment paper onto the stand so the cake doesn’t come directly in contact with the painted cake stand.
