Pretty Pedestals


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 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.


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



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.


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


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


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!

  1. I was inspired by your pictures from Sweet and Saucy, so I hunted down two pink hobnail cake stands. One came in time for my daughter’s fairy birthday party and had to join the festivities!
    We stacked strawberries dipped in white chocolate and colored sugar on it. I’d leave a picture, but I can’t seem to figure you how to do it.

  2. the last occasion i celebrated with cake was… monday. today is tuesday, so we will probably have more cake this afternoon to celebrate tuesday.

  3. I need a ruffle cake in my life too. I think everybody needs a ruffle cake. Absolutely beautiful! Sorry I missed your contest. My last cake was a chocolate cheese cake; recipe by Alice Medrich. It was, as always, yummy. Oh and I made an icebox cake with homemade chocolate wafers, that was good too (birthday celebrations). I am gearing up to make your version of the 12 layer cake (14 layers). Love your instruction and the idea to use inexpensive disposable pans. Your photo of the finished product is just too enticing to resist. So glad to hear that you are managing well. Thank you for the link to organ donor information. I wish you and your mother vitality and good health!

  4. I am baking a cake righ now!! Lol. I love cake stands. I collect them. I found a really great place in Ohio that sells beautiful cake stands in some amazing colours.

    here is the link….

  5. I would like to find the white “curvy” cake stand that the pink ruffle cake is sitting on, but it’s not on their website. Anyone know where I can find one?

  6. We celebrated my son’s bday with a cake shaped like a number 1!

  7. I would like to let you know that one of your pictures from Have your roses, and eat them, too! have been used in a swedish competition called Miss Cupcake 2011 by Dr. Oetker.

  8. Cake auction last night, big sucess!

  9. I love your blog, I can’t believe some of these cakes are food! They are pieces of art!
    Hope that you are getting on ok, and are keeping smiling.
    my thoughts are with you.
    A fellow, not quite so talented baker.

  11. wowww im so sad i missed this! the stands are just adorable. and those cakes… my gosh that is skill! now i must shop melody’s store!!!

  12. I love the displays with the cake pedestals! I plan to use a milk glass pedestal, put a small African violet in the center, surround with green easter grass, then decorate with colored eggs for my Easter table.

  13. I am absolutely smitten with cake pops. My plan is to get started with projects to do with my granddaughter.

  14. Hope you’re doing well.

  16. Hope you’re doing okay! Haven’t seen a new post in a while… was getting concerned. How’s everything going healthwise?

  17. I somehow found your website and have been intrigued for the past 3 days. I am 16 years old and have decided that with my life I want to open a bakery. I have been to some of the high end bakeries near my house, ironically enough my favorite one to go to is Sweet & Saucy. I first went there to get french macaroons for my sisters birthday and then I realized, that was the type of place I want to open. Then when I was browsing your site I noticed the pictures from that bakery. I think your site is super inspirational and it has helped me already within these 3 days figure out a lot about baking. Since Friday I have made 3 different batches of different cake pops, just messing around with the flavors. If you have any tips for me in starting a career in baking please let me know! I love looking at all your recipes and pictures!

  18. Thinking about you! I hope all is well and you are doing wonderful!

This morning, I saw a local Starbucks advertising their own Cake Pops for sale– please tell me you entered into some huge deal with them that’s making you fabulously wealthy :) I hope your treatment is going well and we’ll hear from you again soon! Be well!

  25. Wow fantastic my mouth is watering!

  26. Beautiful! Now I want to go bake something “Sweet” this photo is worth a thousand words.

  27. We celebrate every birthday with a cake. From themes such as Dora to the now Angry Birds cake. A wedding shower is next and my thoughts drift towards the cake stand photo above and I drool. At estate sales I cannot pass any serving dishes without picking them up. I am hoping to use this as inspiration for the shower dessert table. Louise

  30. Hey Bakerella,
    Thank you so much for supporting our Scav Hunt Team during the four days of craziness at the University of Chicago Scav Hunt! We are trying to get this quote and link out as much as possible, so here it is!

    Here is our team page and the tagged quote:
    “Mama Shaq, Mama Shaq, Shaq’s your mom, that’s a fact”

    We appreciate your support and letting us post the link and quote here! We love your recipes and when we attempt to bake some brownies using only the power of the sun on sunday (with a newly built solar powered oven!, item #147) we will channel our own inner bakers!
