Pretty Pedestals

1

Take a look at these beautiful cake stands. That is if you can see past the skyline of sweets. I absolutely love this photo. Love it. I wish I could enlarge it and wallpaper my kitchen with it. This photo and the rest in this post (taken by Ashley Rose Photography) are photos of cakes from my friend Melody’s shop, My Sweet & Saucy. We’ve been internet buds from way back when I had a blogspot.com address. And since then, she’s gone from blogger herself, to superstar baker, making the most gorgeous cakes and working with the likes of Tori Spelling, Miley Cyrus and more. I just wish she wasn’t all the way in California. Actually, it’s a good thing I’m not in driving distance. For my waistline anyway.

5z

Oh dear. I need a pink ruffle cake in my life.

Pronto.

5

Look at all these cakes. I mean pedestals. Big ones. Little ones. Tall ones. Short ones.

Melody also has an online store where you can find them all in one place.


3

Yes, pedestals. Like this pretty little pink one. Perfect for a petite little cake.

6

Or stack two and you can fill it with sweet little treats.

2

Wait, you mean you don’t have a large and small pink glass pedestal or a sweet glass dome?

That’s terrible. Unthinkable.

Would you like one? I mean all three pieces in the photo above?

I thought you might.

Melody is giving them away to one of my readers. Yippee! Thanks Melody!

Hi Bakerella.

I’m a long time blog creeper. It’s nice to see some pretty cakes on your blog again.

I’ve been thinking about you with all the health things you’re dealing with right now. You’re in my prayers each day. Hope all is well and you’re getting a chance to make some yummy cake pops.

I was visiting Washington D.C. last weekend (my first time there!) and I saw that Starbucks is now selling cake pops! I thought that whomever made that executive decision must be a long time fan of your blog!

We just celebrated the life of a friend today. She was only 12 years old and died in a car accident last Tuesday. Since her family was unable to give her a wedding, they had a wedding cake at her funeral instead.

I love all of her cakes! And of course love the pedestals! It’s been quite some time since I celebrated with cake, I’ve been on a cupcake frenzy lately. I think the last time might have been a work birthday party.
