It’s been a bit slow on the blog this week, however, at home, things couldn’t be the same.
With a couple of deadlines to meet,
school to teach, children to care for and a family to feed, the first part of my week was pretty hectic.
Life is starting to slow down, however, my sights are now on a wedding cake/pies I’m catering for a friends wedding in two weeks.
I absolutely adore putting together wedding cakes. Especially when there is a theme involved.
For this wedding, it’s actually centered around pies with a small two tiered cake.
It’s going to be a country-chic wedding with a rustic vintage feel.
Here is a photo I found as inspiration for the wedding cake/pie display.
Of course the backdrop and all the elements in this display will not be used. What I adored are the use of cake stands which for my display will hold freshly baked pies and caramel apples.
For the pies, I’ll be working on apple, peach, red raspberry, pecan, and german chocolate.
For the cake itself I may place it on a stand like this.
Instead of cupcakes, it will hold pies in mason jars. However, those might be mini cupcakes, so I’m not sure if that will actually fit. Hmmm?
The cake will be simple, white, two tiered with flowers on top.
I’m not sure if I’ll use fondant. Maybe something more messy… clean, but intentionally frosted with streaks.
On the table, I will have two cast iron skillets with cobblers. Blackberry and Blueberry.
Have you seen this picture of a pie in a cast iron skillet from Amelia of Z Tasty Life? Beautiful, isn’t it?
In my research I have found so many beautiful cake stands and great resources to make my own.
Let’s glee in cake stand love.
For my own personal collection, I would love… love to place a Spanish almond torta on top of this,
And one day, one day, I’ll own a Clara French.
I have a lot of work ahead of me and I’ll definitely share pictures of what my final display looks like.
So, do you enjoy a beautiful cake stand? Do you have any links you’d like to share of your favorite cake stand?
